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

Antonio Meza

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

Interior Shutters Offer Full Coverage On Front Door Windows

You’ll often 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 sunlight in their entryways. They swing 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 flapping against your door, interior shutters are the best option. They attach to the window frame and every piece stays put. They don’t knock into the hinges or get pull cords tangled in the door.

And then you can tilt the louvers to bring in privacy and sunlight. Shut them to protect your home from nosey neighbors and UV rays or open them for filtered light. If you want direct natural light, you can pull open the shutter panel and allow it to come in. When someone pushes your doorbell, tilt open your shutter louvers to peer at your stoop and see who it is.

Plantation Shutters Provide Tricky Sidelight Windows With A Custom Look

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 directly into your San Antonio home or they blind you when the sun is too intense if you don’t figure out a way to block them.

Being so narrow, sidelights look best with customized plantation shutters. The crisp lines of the shutters fit thin sidelights that are otherwise overcome by waving drapery or blind cords. Their louvers give your doorway an attractive architectural element and texture. You can pick from three separate 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 house and its entryway but can be an annoyance if they face a direction that lets in lots of light.

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 operate them, too. Just like on square windows simply utilize the tilt rod to adjust the louvers to deflect or shut out sun glare in your entryway.
