Treating standard windows seems pretty straightforward, but as soon as there’s an entryway involved, it can feel daunting. Yet those windows deserve coverings too, to help keep outdoor air out, to protect the interior from UV rays, to help manage light, and to control privacy. At Perfect Fit Window Fashions serving Naples, Florida, we have a number of solutions that are great for all types of windows, whether they’re standard or if they offer a twist. Read on to learn more, and be sure to speak with one of our consultants about specifics for your needs.
Sliding Glass Doors
If you have a sliding glass door in your home, you might consider a treatment that’s designed for vertically oriented openings. Be sure to hang those treatments so they open in the same direction as the slider, which will make them stack on the opposite side of the main opening. One great option is Skyline® Gliding Window Panels, which offer a contemporary look and come in numerous fabrics and color options. An energy-efficient choice is Duette® Honeycomb Shades with the vertically oriented Vertiglide™ operating system. Or if your sliding glass door sees lots of traffic, you might want to hang shutters, which are extremely durable.
French doors are architecturally lovely and deserve to be enhanced by the treatment you choose. Considerations, therefore, include how the treatment is mounted (which might mean needing extension brackets or spacer blocks), as well as cutouts for the handle. The NewStyle® Hybrid Shutter is available with cutouts and a dovetail construction. Another great choice is Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters, which are made of faux wood, which is resistant to warping, cracking, fading, chipping, peeling, and discoloration, no matter the level of heat or moisture at the window. For a soft treatment option, look at Vignette® Modern Roman Shades, which can lie flat behind the door handles, or roller shades, which lie flush against the glass.
The Front Door
Some front doors are designed with one or more side windows, which can offer light in an otherwise dim space. That also creates an easy spot for peeping Toms, which means that treating them is in order. Because those windows tend to be tall and narrow, good options cellular shades, blinds, shutters, and vertical sheers such as Luminette® Privacy Sheers. If you have an arch window above the door, choose 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.
