Window Treatment Ideas for Entryways, Foyers and Doors

First impressions are so important. Your home’s windows and doors are the first thing guests see when they arrive. What do you want them to say about you?

That’s why you need to make sure the window treatments you choose are just right!

At Louver Shop, we transform homes like yours everyday through personalized, local service, and a free, in-home consultation. With your vision and our expertise, we can make your dream of a beautiful home happen.

Our team can help you find just the right window covering that projects an elegant yet welcoming impression to everyone who enters your home.

Here are our expert recommendations for covering some of the challenging openings in your home.

Entryways and Foyers

One common challenge for entryways and foyers is extra-large and/or differently shaped windows. Many foyers have high ceilings, and homeowners can be overwhelmed trying to find something that works with these windows.

If this is your situation, consider Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Not only are they perfect for extra-tall windows, they also provide light and climate control while ensuring privacy.

Or perhaps you need coverings for arches, transoms, window lights and your door itself. In this case, the optimal choice is custom-made LouverWood™ Plantation Shutters. They can be made for any size or shape of window. Plus, they are wonderful at protecting your carpets and furnishings from heat and damaging UV rays.

You also can’t go wrong with Heritage Plantation Shutters. These shutters look gorgeous from either side of your window or door and are a true investment in your home. And of course, they can be painted or stained in a wide array of colors for just the right effect.

Doors

Doors aren’t just a way to go in or out of a house or room. With beautiful coverings, they can also be a lovely accent to a room’s décor. There’s a wide variety of window coverings that are perfect for almost any type of door.

Extra-wide doorways, transoms and arches are no problem, since Louver Shop can create custom-sized shutters for any style of door and accent.

A standard door can be dressed up with a gorgeous window covering as well. Hunter Douglas Parkland® Classics Blinds make a boring door into a lovely accent.

French Doors

French doors are a lovely addition to any room, but they are even more gorgeous with just the right window coverings.

Traditionally, French doors are enhanced by shutters. We have beautiful, real wood plantation shutters in almost any stain or color. Or, you can also go with poly shutters, like LouverWood™. These shutters can be customized for any size French door along with transoms, side lights and accent windows.

Shutters are perfect for any style of décor from casual to traditional to eclectic. With all of the colors and stains available, they can become a stunning showpiece for any room in your home.

Our shutters are made with care and meant to last for decades, so you will get years of use and enjoyment from them.

You aren’t limited to shutters when covering a French door. For instance, Hunter Douglas Applause® Honeycomb Shades or Applause Vertiglide™ Shades are also perfect for French doors. Shades and blinds are a great way to have privacy and light control without sacrificing beauty.

We carry a huge variety of shades and blinds that will complement your style.

Sliding Doors

Sliding glass doors can be found in many rooms in your house. Whether you want to cover them for privacy, light control or just to enhance the room’s décor, you can be sure our team has dozens of products and ideas for your sliding glass doors.

Depending on the room, you may want to “dress up” your sliding door or may want to keep it casual. For instance, a sliding glass door in a bedroom looks beautiful with Hunter Douglas Luminette® Sheers. These sheers allow light while maintaining privacy, plus, they are a gorgeous accent.

Or, a sliding glass door in a living room looks lovely and unique when covered with plantation shutters on a track. You can slide the shutters back and forth for access to the door. And the shutters can be stained or painted any color to match your décor.

There are dozens of other options beside shutters or sheers for sliding doors.

For example, a sliding door in a casual kitchen nook looks perfect when covered by Hunter Douglas Provenance® Woven Wood Shades. Also, a sliding door in a bedroom can be given a tropical feel when covered by the same shades.

Or, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades by Hunter Douglas can be used on a sliding door and the windows in a room to tie the entire look together.
