What Are The Best Front Door Window Treatments For Boise?

February 12, 2021

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

Plantation Shutters Offer Full 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 look 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 covers slapping against the door, plantation shutters are your best choice. They secure to the window frame and each piece stays put. They don’t hit the hinges or get strings trapped in the door.

Of course, you can slant the louvers to control privacy and sunlight. Close them to protect your home from prying people and UV rays or open them for partial light. If you desire full light, you can swing open the shutter panel and allow it to come in. When somebody 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 natural light and a view of the outdoors. They also permit people to look straight into your Boise home or they blind you when the sun is too bright if you don’t find a way to block them.

Because sidelights are so narrow, they look best with custom-made plantation shutters. The crisp lines of the shutters fit skinny sidelights that are otherwise hidden by blind cords or waving curtains. Their louvers give your entryway an attractive architectural element and texture. You can select from three different sizes of louvers and several neutral hues to get the style you want. Pick from crisp white Polywood® shutters or the warm colors of premium wood Ovation® shutters to easily match or set off the trim around your front door.

Circle shaped window in Boise 

Plantation Shutters Work On Lovely 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 face of your Boise home and its entryway but can be an inconvenience if they face a direction that lets in lots of sunlight.

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