What Are The Best Front Door Window Treatments For Detroit?

February 12, 2021

When covering a window on a front entryway, you don’t want something that swings when you use the door or conceals unusual shaped windows like blinds and shades do. You require something that covers your front door’s windows for privacy and light control and shows off their form. That leaves multipurpose plantation shutters as your best option for front door window treatments in Detroit. They suit all windows to achieve the coverage and elegance you want in your entrance.

Interior Shutters Provide Full Coverage On Front Door Windows

You’ll frequently find blinds and shades on a front door, but they aren’t the ideal front door window treatments for Detroit homeowners who look to control privacy and sunlight in their entrances. They sway at the tiniest motion, giving a peek into the interior of your house even after you shut the door.

If you don’t want your window covers thumping against your door, plantation shutters are your best option. They attach to the window frame and every part remains in place. They don’t knock into the hinges or get pull cords stuck in the door.

Of course, you can tilt the louvers to bring in privacy and sunlight. Close them to shield your home from spying people and sunlight or open them for partial light. If you want direct sunlight, you can pull open the shutter panel and let it flood in. When a visitor rings your doorbell, crack open your shutter louvers to peer at your stoop and see who is there.

Plantation Shutters Give Awkward Sidelight Windows A Custom Style

Sidelights are the skinny windows alongside of a door. They give your entryway more natural light and a view outdoors. They also let people peek straight into your Detroit house or they blind you when the sun is too brilliant if you don’t have a way to block them.

Because sidelights are so slim, they look best with custom-made plantation shutters. The defined lines of the shutters suit skinny sidelights that are otherwise hidden by blind cords or waving drapes. Their louvers give your entrance an attractive design element and texture. You can choose from three separate sizes of louvers and multiple neutral hues to get the style you want. Pick from bright white Polywood® shutters or the warm hues of premium wood Ovation® shutters to easily match or harmonize with the trim around your front door.

Plantation Shutters Fit Lovely Eyebrow And Circle Windows

“Eyebrow” windows are small arched windows at the top of doors. You might also see circular windows above doors or on them. Both shapes add a lot of interest to the exterior of your Detroit house and its entryway but can be an annoyance if they look in a direction that allows in a great amount of sunlight.

You may hide these windows with a shade or blinds, but you’ll give up their lovely shapes. Instead, check out plantation shutters. Interior shutters can be customized to fit any window shape--even awkward round ones. You can still manipulate them, too. Just like on straight window covering simply utilize the tilt rod to adjust the louvers and redirect or shut out sun glare in your entrance.
