What Are The Best Front Door Window Treatments For Sacramento?

February 12, 2021

When covering a entryway window, you won’t want something that moves when you open the door or hides specialty shaped windows like blinds and shades do. You need something that covers your front entryway windows for privacy and light control and reveals their appearance. That leaves multipurpose plantation shutters as your preferred option for front door window treatments in Sacramento. They fit every window to achieve the coverage and beauty you desire in your entrance.

Plantation Shutters Give Complete Coverage For Front Door Windows

You’ll sometimes observe blinds and shades on doors, but they aren’t the best front door window treatments for Sacramento homeowners who look to manage privacy and illumination in their entrances. They swing at the tiniest motion, giving a view into the interior of your house even after you close the door.

When you don’t like your window covers slapping against the door, interior shutters are your best option. They fasten to the window frame and every panel stays put. They don’t bump the doorknob or get pull cords trapped in the door.

And then you can adjust the louvers to bring in sunlight and privacy. Close them to protect your home from intrusive people and sunlight or open them for partial light. If you wish for unfiltered natural light, you can open the shutter panel and allow it to stream in. When a visitor rings your doorbell, crack open your shutter louvers to glance outside and see who it is.

Plantation Shutters Give Tricky Sidelight Windows A Custom Look

Sidelights are the thin windows that flank a door. They give your entryway extra natural light and a view outdoors. They also permit people to look straight into your Sacramento home or they blind you with bright sunlight if you don’t figure out a way to block them.

Because sidelights are so slim, they look best with customized plantation shutters. The neat lines of the shutters flatter slim sidelights that are otherwise hidden by blind cords or billowing drapery. Their louvers give your doorway an appealing architectural feature and texture. You can select from three sizes of louvers and several neutral hues to get the style you want. Choose from bright white Polywood® shutters or the rich colors of premium wood Ovation® shutters to easily match or set off the trim around your front door.

Circle shaped window in Sacramento 

Plantation Shutters Work On Pretty Circle And Eyebrow Windows

“Eyebrow” windows are small arched windows above doors. You might also see circle windows over doors or on them. Both shapes offer charm to the facade of your Sacramento house and its entrance but can be an inconvenience if they face a direction that allows in a lot of glare.

You may cover these windows with a shade or blinds, but you’ll forfeit their beautiful shapes. Instead, consider plantation shutters. Interior shutters can be custom-made to work on any window shape--even tricky round ones. You can still use them, too. Similar to rectangular window covering simply utilize the tilt rod to adjust the louvers and redirect or block sun glare in your entryway.
