Window Treatment Design Tips for Entryways, Foyers and Doors in Philadelphia

First impressions are so important. Your Philadelphia home’s windows and doors are the first thing callers see when they arrive. What do you hope they think about your house?

That’s why you should double check the window coverings you install are exactly what you’re looking for!

At Louver Shop of Philadelphia, we reinvigorate homes like yours all the time through tailored, local help, and a no-cost, in-home consultation. With your preferences and our skills, we can make your dream of a elegant home a reality.

Our experts can help you find just the right window treatments that offers an elegant yet approachable feeling to every guest who enters your family home.

Here are our personal advice for dressing some of the most difficult window openings in your rooms.

Entryways and Foyers

One frequent concern for entryways and foyers is big and/or differentlyshaped windows. Many entrances have lofty ceilings, and homeowners can get overwhelmed trying to locate something that will fil these windows.

If this is something you’re dealing with, think about Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Not only are these window treatments great for extra-tall windows, they also provide light and control of your climate while securing privacy.

Or it may be that you require coverings for arches, transoms, window lights and your door itself. In this situation, the optimal selection is custom-made LouverWood® Plantation Shutters. They can be created for any measure or shape of window. Plus, they are fantastic at protecting your carpets and furnishings from heat and damaging UV rays.

You also can’t go wrong with Heritage Plantation Shutters. These window coverings look gorgeous from either side of your window or door and are a solid investment in your space. And certainly, they can be painted or stained in a wide array of colors for precisely the right result.


Doors are more than just a way to proceed in or out of a space or room. With beautiful treatments, they can also become a lovely accent to a room’s décor. There’s a huge] collection of window treatments that are a great fit for nearly any kind of door.

Super-wide doorways, transoms and arches are easy to manage, since Louver Shop of Philadelphia can offer tailor-made shutters for any type of door and accent.

A normal door can be dressed up with a nice window treatment also. Hunter Douglas Parkland® Classics Blinds make a mundane door into a pleasant accent.

French Doors

French doors are a chic component in any home, but they are even more gorgeous with precisely the right window dressing.

Normally, French doors are dressed with shutters. We have beautiful, real wood plantation shutters in just about any stain or color. Or, you can also go with faux wood shutters, like LouverWood®. These shutters can be tailored for any size French door along with transoms, side lights and accent windows.

Shutters are excellent for any type of furnishings from modern to classical to eclectic. With all of the colors and stains in our range, they can become a remarkable showpiece for any area in your residence.

Our shutters are built with care and meant to be around for decades to come, so you will enjoy years of use and enjoyment from them.

You aren’t limited to shutters when working with a French door. For instance, 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 dropping beauty.

We supply a huge array of shades and blinds that will integrate with your style.

Sliding Doors

Sliding glass doors could be found in a lot of spaces in your residence. Whether you need to close them for privacy, light control or purely to boost the room’s décor, you can be sure our experts have tons of products and design suggestions for your sliding glass doors.

Depending on what room, you may want to “dress up” your sliding door or may want to keep it simple. For for one thing, a sliding glass door in a bedroom looks amazing with Hunter Douglas Luminette® Sheers. These light window treatments allow light while controlling privacy, plus, they are a gorgeous enhancement.

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

There are dozens of other choices besides shutters or sheers for sliding doors.

For instance, a sliding door in a modern 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 placed on a sliding door and the windows in a space to tie the whole room together.
