What Are The Top Front Door Window Treatments For Austin?

Tyler Jorgensen

When covering a front door window, you don’t want something that swings when you use the door or hides specialty shaped windows like blinds and shades do. You need something that covers your front door’s windows to manage privacy and light and reveals their form. That leaves adaptable plantation shutters as your preferred choice for front door window treatments in Austin. They suit every window to give the coverage and grandeur you desire in your entryway.

Interior Shutters Give Complete Coverage For Front Door Windows

You’ll often observe shades and blinds on a front door, but they aren’t the best front door window treatments for Austin homeowners who want to control privacy and light in their entryways. They flap at the slightest motion, giving a view into the interior of your house even after the door shuts.

If you don’t want your window covers slapping against your door, plantation shutters are the ideal option. They attach to the window frame and each piece stays put. They will not knock into the knob or get pull cords trapped in the door.

Then, you can tilt the louvers to bring in privacy and sunlight. Shut them to protect your home from snooping people and sunlight or open them for filtered light. If you desire direct light, you can open the shutter panel and let it flood in. When someone rings your doorbell, crack open your shutter louvers to peep outside and see who it is.

Interior Shutters Give Awkward Sidelight Windows A Custom Style

Sidelights are the slim windows alongside of a door. They give your entryway increased natural light and a view outside. They also let people see straight into your Austin home or they blind you with bright sunlight if you don’t have a way to cover them.

Being so slim, sidelights look best with customized plantation shutters. The defined lines of the shutters suit slim sidelights that are otherwise overwhelmed by blind strings or waving drapes. Their louvers give your doorway an interesting design element and texture. You can select from three separate sizes of louvers and multiple neutral hues to get the look you want. Choose from bright white Polywood® shutters or the warm hues of premium wood Ovation® shutters to seamlessly match or set off the trim on your front door.

Circle shaped window in Austin 

Plantation Shutters Work On Lovely Circle And Eyebrow Windows

“Eyebrow” windows are slim arched windows at the top of doors. You may also observe circle windows above doors or on them. Both shapes give plenty of personality to the exterior of your Austin house and its entrance but can be a pain if they face a direction that allows in a great amount of light.

You can cover these windows with a shade or blinds, but you’ll give up their pleasant forms. Instead, check out plantation shutters. Interior shutters can be custom-made to work on any window shape--even tricky round ones. You can still use them, too. Similar to straight window covering simply utilize the tilt rod to open and close the louvers and divert or block light in your entryway.
