What Are The Best Front Door Window Treatments For Dallas?

February 12, 2021

When covering a front door window, you won’t want something that sways when you use the door or obscures unique shaped windows like blinds and shades do. You need something that covers your front entryway windows to manage privacy and light and shows off their shape. That leaves versatile plantation shutters as your ideal choice for front door window treatments in Dallas. They suit all windows to achieve the coverage and beauty you want in your entrance.

Plantation shutters in a Dallas living room

Interior Shutters Provide Complete Coverage For Front Door Windows

You’ll often observe blinds and shades on a front door, but they aren’t the most preferred front door window treatments for Dallas homeowners who want to control privacy and sunlight in their entrances. They flap at the slightest movement, giving a peek into the inside of your home even after the door shuts.

When you don’t like your window coverings thumping against your door, plantation shutters are the ideal option. They affix to the window frame and each panel stays in place. They won’t bump the hinges or get pull strings caught in the door.

Of course, you can tip the louvers to manage privacy and light. Shut them to guard your home from prying passersby and sunlight or open them for filtered light. If you want full light, you can swing open the shutter panel and allow it to stream in. When a visitor rings your doorbell, crack open your shutter louvers to peek out and see who is there.

Plantation Shutters Provide Awkward Sidelight Windows With A Custom Look

Sidelights are the skinny windows on either side of a door. They give your entrance extra sunlight and a view outside. They also let people see directly into your Dallas house or they blind you when the sun is too brilliant if you don’t figure out a way to block them.

Being so narrow, sidelights look best with custom crafted plantation shutters. The neat lines of the shutters flatter slim sidelights that are otherwise overcome by blind strings or waving curtains. Their louvers give your entryway an attractive structural element and texture. You can choose from three sizes of louvers and several neutral hues to get the style you want. Select from clean white Polywood® shutters or the vivid hues of premium wood Ovation® shutters to effortlessly match or complement the trim on your front door.

Circle shaped window in Dallas 

Interior Shutters Fit Lovely Circle And Eyebrow Windows

“Eyebrow” windows are small arched windows at the top of doors. You might also find circular windows over doors or on them. Both shapes add plenty of personality to the facade of your Dallas home and its entrance but can be a pain if they look in a direction that allows in lots of light.

You may cover these windows with a shade or blinds, but you’ll forfeit their pleasant forms. Instead, consider plantation shutters. Plantation shutters can be customized to fit any window shape--even challenging round ones. You can still manipulate them, too. Like rectangular windows simply utilize the tilt rod to open and close the louvers and deflect or restrict sunlight in your entrance.
