They will look fine but you will hate them going in and out the door.

After looking online, the ones you suggest look better than what they are showing. Do a google search and click on images and it will bring up tons of examples of what folks use on sliders.

Different reasons has different solutions.
I live next to a busy street and for some privacy. I want sun to filter in like we have now, but also be able to close them completely for privacy.

What you have shown would look fine. It lets in the light and gives
you the privacy you need. If you use curtain rings on the sheers,
you can then easily pull them to one side, to exit the door, and
easily pull them back, after you come into the house.
Your other opion is to put them on a travis rod that pulls to one side.

Either way it would look nice, I like it better than vertical blinds.

The sheers you have pictured are in front of your existing sliding door?
I thought the verticals were your existing sliding door???
