What Are The Most Preferred Front Door Window Treatments For San Antonio?

February 12, 2021

When covering a window on a front door, you don’t want something that swings when you use the door or obscures unusual shaped windows like shades and blinds do. You want something that covers your front door windows to control privacy and light and displays their form. That leaves adaptable plantation shutters as your top option for front door window treatments in San Antonio. They suit all windows to provide the coverage and grandeur you desire in your entryway.

Interior Shutters Offer 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 San Antonio homeowners who need to control privacy and light in their entryways. They sway at the smallest movement, giving a peek into the interior of your home even after the door shuts.

If you don’t like your window coverings smacking against your door, interior shutters are your best option. They secure to the window frame and every piece stays put. They won’t knock into the hinges or get pull cords tangled in the door.

And then you can tilt the louvers to bring in natural light and privacy. Shut them to protect your home from prying passersby and UV rays or open them for filtered light. If you desire full natural light, you can pull open the shutter panel and let it stream in. When somebody pushes your doorbell, tilt open your shutter louvers to peek at your stoop and see who it is.

Plantation Shutters Give Awkward Sidelight Windows A Custom Style

Sidelights are the thin windows that flank a door. They give your doorways increased light and a view of the outside. They also let people peer straight into your San Antonio home or they blind you when the sun is too bright if you don’t figure out a way to block them.

Because sidelights are so slender, they look best with custom-made plantation shutters. The crisp lines of the shutters fit thin sidelights that are otherwise overcome by billowing drapery or blind cords. Their louvers give your doorway an attractive architectural element and texture. You can pick from three different sizes of louvers and several neutral hues to get the look you want. Select from bright white Polywood® shutters or the warm hues of premium wood Ovation® shutters to effortlessly match or complement the trim on your front door.

Circle shaped window in San Antonio 

Interior Shutters Fit Lovely Circle And Eyebrow Windows

“Eyebrow” windows are slim arched windows at the top of doors. You may also observe circular windows above doors or on them. Both shapes give interest to the front of your San Antonio home and its entryway but can be an annoyance if they face a direction that lets in a lot of sunlight.

You may hide these windows with a shade or blinds, but you’ll give up their pleasant shapes. Instead, consider plantation shutters. Plantation shutters can be custom-built to work on any window shape--even tricky curved ones. You can still use them, too. Similar to rectangular windows simply utilize the tilt rod to adjust the louvers to deflect or shut out sun glare in your entryway.
