Need help with a window treatment

We removed our bay window and install a patio door with 2 windows, one each side (this past winter), We will be building a deck this spring (if that ever comes) I do not want to cover the trim work, but, this is our living room and would like some type of privacy at night..any ideas would be greatly appreciated as I am stumped.

I feel it would look good to have draperies run the full width so that when they are open the doors are fully exposed but the draperies cover the windows. This will actually give you a lovely interior focal as well as a frame for your view. A narrow rod run 1.5 inches above the centre of the flat part of your moulding seems ideal.

How tall are your ceilings? How big is the room? And how wide are the doors/windows--about 10 feet? Not sure I would recommend panels there, how about roman shades or woven wood shades?

I would not put a single bracket for support on that width. So functioning panels would not work, as rings would not cross the brackets to close to the center. (unless you invested in a custom rod with specially made rings to bypass a bracket) Does that make sense?
