Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters for French Doors

Architecturally, a door that has a window—or is flanked by one—can be visually appealing and can add a great deal of drama to a room through natural light and beauty. But that same window can also bring with it the need for insulation from outdoor temperatures, as well as the need for protection from harmful UV rays. At Windo VanGo serving the greater Baltimore area, we know it can be tough to cover those windows because of their beauty—but we offer some of the best and most beauty-enhancing treatments available. Read on to learn more!

Front Door Window Coverings

Many front doors are surrounded by side windows, which allows you to glance outside to see who’s calling or to gauge whether that certain package has arrived. But they let people see inside too, so you probably should consider covering them. For those tall and narrow windows, great options include cellular shades, blinds, shutters, and vertical sheers such as Luminette® Privacy Sheers. Some front doors have specialty windows above as accents to their beauty. One of the most common is the arch, which can be covered well by cellular shades with the Hunter Douglas EasyView® Arch, which can raise and lower instead of being stationary. Or, if you have a window inside the door, look at options like Duette® Honeycomb Shades, which offer extra insulation at the glass.

Sliders for Large Windows

Sliders do well with vertically oriented treatments, such as Skyline® Gliding Window Panels, which offer a contemporary look and come in numerous fabrics and color options. You can also look to Duette® Honeycomb Shades with the vertically oriented Vertiglide™ operating system. If you use a vertically oriented covering, be sure the treatment will open in the same direction as the slider, so that it stacks on the opposite side of the main opening.

Shades or Shutters for French Doors

One of the best options for French doors is the NewStyle® Hybrid Shutter, which is available with cutouts for the door handles and is made with dovetail construction for greater durability. Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters are made with faux wood, which is resistant to warping, cracking, fading, chipping, peeling, and discoloration, no matter the level of heat or moisture at the window. Or consider a soft treatment such as Vignette® Modern Roman Shades, which can lie flat behind the door handles, or roller shades, which lie flush against the glass.
