What Are The Best Front Door Window Treatments For Dallas?

Collins Jones

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

Interior Shutters Give Full Coverage For Front Door Windows

You’ll frequently see 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 smallest movement, giving a peek into the inside of your home even after you shut the door.

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

Of course, you can adjust the louvers to manage privacy and sunlight. Shut them to protect your home from nosey passersby and sunlight or open them for filtered light. If you want direct sunlight, you can pull open the shutter panel and allow it to stream in. When a visitor rings your doorbell, crack open your shutter louvers to peer outside and see who is there.

Plantation Shutters Give Tricky Sidelight Windows A Custom Appearance

Sidelights are the slim windows on either side of a door. They give your entryway more natural light 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 crisp lines of the shutters fit skinny sidelights that are otherwise overcome by blind strings or billowing curtains. Their louvers give your entryway an attractive structural element and texture. You can choose from three sizes of louvers and multiple neutral hues to get the style you want. Select from crisp white Polywood® shutters or the vivid hues of premium wood Ovation® shutters to effortlessly match or coordinate with 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 over doors. You might also see circular windows over doors or on them. Both shapes add plenty of personality to the facade of your Dallas house and its entrance but can be a pain if they look in a direction that allows in a lot of sunlight.

You may cover these windows with a shade or blinds, but you’ll lose their beautiful forms. Instead, consider plantation shutters. Plantation shutters can be customized to fit any window shape--even awkward 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 light in your entrance.
