As decorative elements, front entryway windows or those on other doors can be beautiful, can add nice charm, and can bring extra light to what might otherwise be a darker area of the home. But that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be covered—after all, outdoor air temperatures and UV rays can enter through those windows as well as through any other. At Window Treats serving Monmouth Beach, we offer a variety of solutions that will help maintain what you love about those windows while protecting your interior. Read on to learn more!
Ways to Treat Door Windows
Typically, there are several types of doorway windows to look at. The main ones include:
- French Doors. One of the best options for French doors is the NewStyle® Hybrid Shutter, which is available with cutouts for the handles and a dovetail construction for durability. Another good choice is Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters, which are made of faux wood, so they’re resistant to warping, fading, cracking, peeling, chipping, and discoloration, no matter the level of heat or moisture at the window. For softer treatments on your French door, look at Vignette® Modern Roman Shades, which can lie flat behind the door handles, or roller shades, which lie flush against the glass.
- Sliders. One of the best choices for a slider is a vertically oriented treatment, such Skyline® Gliding Window Panels, which offer a contemporary look and come in numerous fabrics and color options. You can also consider Duette® Honeycomb Shades with the vertically oriented Vertiglide™ operating system. For sliders in high-traffic areas of the house, shutters are a good bet because they’re extremely durable.
- Front Doors. If your front door has one or two side windows, light as well as privacy might be a consideration. Because those side windows are tall and narrow, some good options include shutters, cellular shades, blinds, and vertical sheers such as Luminette®
- Privacy Sheers. For specialty shapes above the door, such as an arch, cellular shades are a good option for temperature control and UV ray protection. If you choose the Hunter Douglas EasyView® Arch, you can raise and lower the product instead of having it be stationary. Finally, for a window inside the door, consider something like Duette® Honeycomb Shades, which offer extra insulation at the glass.
