Window Treatment Ideas for Entryways, Foyers and Doors in Raleigh

Initial impressions are powerful. Your Raleigh home’s windows and doors are the first bit of your space visitors see when they come see you. What do you hope they assume about your family?

That’s why you have to make sure the window treatments you select are perfect!

At Louver Shop of Raleigh, we transform house like yours everyday through customized, local service, and a no-cost, in-home consultation. With your design parameters and our skills, we can make your dream of a gorgeous home real.

Our experts can help you pick just the right window treatments that offers a grand yet welcoming impression to every guest who is invited into your house.

Here are our personal advice for working with some of the most awkward windows in your space.

Entryways and Foyers

One prevalent challenge for entryways and foyers is larger and/or differentlyshaped windows. Many foyers have tall ceilings, and homeowners can get overwhelmed trying to find a treatment that works with these windows.

If this is your reality, consider Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Not only are these shades great for really tall windows, they also provide light and climate control while guaranteeing privacy.

Or perhaps you need coverings for arches, transoms, window lights and your door itself. In this situation, the optimal choice is tailor-made LouverWood™ Plantation Shutters. They can be created for any dimension or shape of window frame. Plus, they are suburb at sheltering your carpets and furnishings from heat and damaging sun rays.

You also can’t make a mistake with Heritage Plantation Shutters. These shutters look great from both sides of your window or door and are a incredible investment in your space. And of course, they can be painted or stained in a wide variety of colors for precisely the right effect.


Doors are not just a way to proceed in or out of a house or room. With gorgeous coverings, they can also turn into a simple accent to a room’s décor. There’s a huge] array of window dressings that are ideal for practically any model of door.

Super-wide doorways, transoms and arches are simple to take care of, since Louver Shop of Raleigh can build custom-made shutters for any kind of door and accent.

A usual door can be dressed up with a nice window treatment too. Hunter Douglas Parkland® Classics Blinds make a dull door into a handsome accent.

French Doors

French doors are a luxurious addition to any room, but they are even more beautiful with simply the right window coverings.

Traditionally, French doors are dressed with shutters. We have handsome, genuine wood plantation shutters in nearly any stain or color. Or, you can also go with PVC shutters, like LouverWood™. These shutters can be tailored for any size French door as well as transoms, side lights and accent windows.

Shutters are ideal for any style of interior design from casual to classical to eclectic. With all of the colors and stains in our range, they can become a gorgeous centerpiece for any place in your home.

Our shutters are created with devotion and designed to stick around for decades to come, so you will enjoy years of use and enjoyment from them.

You you can explore other options than shutters when dressing a French door. For example, Hunter Douglas Applause® Honeycomb Shades or Applause Vertiglide™ Shades are also a good choice for your French doors. Shades and blinds are a simple way to have privacy and light control without sacrificing style.

We supply a large assortment of shades and blinds that will fit with your home.

Sliding Doors

Sliding glass doors can be placed in a lot of areas in your house. Whether you want to close them for privacy, light control or simply to show off the room’s looks, you can be certain our crew has dozens of products and design suggestions for your sliding glass doors.

Depending on which room, you could possibly want to “dress up” your sliding door or may wish to keep it casual. For example, a sliding glass door in a bedroom looks amazing with Hunter Douglas Luminette® Sheers. These light window treatments let in light while maintaining privacy, plus, they are a good looking addition.

Or, a sliding glass door in a living room looks modern and unique when created with plantation shutters on a track. You can move the shutters back and forth for access to the door. And the shutters can be tinted or painted any color to work with your interior design.

There are lots of other alternatives besides shutters or sheers for sliding doors.

For instance, a sliding door in a simple kitchen nook looks so nice when covered by Hunter Douglas Provenance® Woven Wood Shades. Or, a sliding door in a bedroom can be given a tropical feel when covered by exactly the same shades.

Or, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades by Hunter Douglas can be integrated on a sliding door and the windows in a room to tie the whole design together.
