What Are The Best Front Door Window Treatments For Boise?

Spencer Madsen

When covering a front door window, you don’t want something that moves when you open the door or hides unusual shaped windows like blinds and shades do. You want something that covers your front door windows for privacy and light control and displays their shape. That leaves versatile plantation shutters as your preferred choice for front door window treatments in Boise. They work on all windows to achieve the coverage and elegance you want in your entryway.

Plantation Shutters Offer Complete Coverage For Front Door Windows

You’ll sometimes find blinds and shades on a front door, but they aren’t the favorite front door window treatments for Boise homeowners who want to control privacy and sunlight in their entrances. They flap at the slightest movement, giving a peek into the inside of your house even after you shut the door.

When you don’t like your window treatments slapping against the door, plantation shutters are the best option. They secure to the window frame and each part remains in place. They won’t bump the hinges or get strings trapped in the door.

Then, you can slant the louvers to manage natural light and privacy. Close them to guard your home from prying people and UV rays or open them for partial light. If you want direct sunlight, you can pull open the shutter panel and let it stream in. When someone rings your doorbell, tilt open your shutter louvers to glance outside and see who is there.

Plantation Shutters Give Difficult Sidelight Windows A Custom Look

Sidelights are the slim windows that flank a door. They give your entryway increased sunlight and a view of the outdoors. They also permit people to peek directly into your Boise home or they blind you with brilliant sunlight if you don’t have a way to block them.

Because sidelights are so narrow, they look best with customized plantation shutters. The neat lines of the shutters flatter skinny sidelights that are otherwise hidden by fussy drapes or blind cords. Their louvers give your doorway an attractive architectural element and texture. You can select from three different sizes of louvers and multiple neutral hues to get the style you want. Choose from clean white Polywood® shutters or the rich colors of premium wood Ovation® shutters to effortlessly match or coordinate with the trim around your front door.

Plantation Shutters Work On Charming Eyebrow And Circle Windows

“Eyebrow” windows are slim arched windows over doors. You might also find circular windows above doors or on them. Both shapes give a lot of interest to the exterior of your Boise house and its entryway but can be an inconvenience if they face a direction that lets in a lot of light.

You may cover these windows with blinds or a shade, but you’ll forfeit their lovely forms. Instead, check out plantation shutters. Plantation shutters can be customized to fit any window shape--even awkward curved ones. You can still manipulate them, too. Just like on square windows simply utilize the tilt rod to open and close the louvers and deflect or shut out sun glare in your entryway.
