Dressings for privacy for frequently used sliding doors

I have a double length sliding glass door that separates the kitchen from the outside deck, and thus it's frequently used. Privacy is required at night and I'm looking for ideas to create privacy at night time. There are currently vertical blinds in place but I HATE vertical blinds, they're common looking and constantly break. Due to frequent use, horizontal blinds I would suggest are out particularly for the sliding side of the door. Are my only other options curtains, roll down blinds? Any ideas??

The best options are easy to slide drapery panels (hung on rings or grommets or traverse rod) or the new fabric version of verticals from Hunter Douglas - Luminettes. These aren't your mother's vertical blinds!

Thank you very much! I looked at the site you suggested and am inspired! Much much better than the traditional hideous verticals!

Take a look at the averte natural fold panels on Horizon Shades website--there is a video showing how it works. Has the look of woven shades on a sliding track. Great alternative to drapery. Sheers on a track rod would slide open easily for frequent open and shutting.
