My mom has the "mini blinds" in a regular door and they, to me, are awesome. I would get them.
Also, we have two sets of sliding glass doors that came with the house and they don't leak. The only problem is that the sliding screen door that came with it was busted when we brought the house so it gets jammed. However, that is irrelevant to your question so...I say, if you can, go for it!
