What Are The Favorite Front Door Window Treatments For Kingsport?

February 12, 2021

When covering a window on a front door, you don’t want something that sways when you open the door or conceals unique shaped windows like shades and blinds do. You require something that covers your front entryway windows to manage privacy and light and shows off their shape. That leaves adaptable plantation shutters as your preferred choice for front door window treatments in Kingsport. They suit every window to achieve the coverage and elegance you want for your entrance.

Interior Shutters Give Full Coverage For Front Door Windows

You’ll often find shades and blinds on doors, but they aren’t the favorite front door window treatments for Kingsport homeowners who want to manage privacy and sunlight in their entryways. They swing at the tiniest motion, giving a view into the interior of your house even after the door shuts.

When you don’t like your window covers smacking against your door, plantation shutters are your best option. They affix to the window frame and each part stays put. They don’t hit the knob or get pull strings caught in the door.

And then you can slant the louvers to manage natural light and privacy. Shut them to shield your home from intrusive people and UV rays or open them for filtered light. If you desire full sunlight, you can open the shutter panel and let it stream in. When someone pushes your doorbell, crack open your shutter louvers to peer out and see who is there.

Plantation Shutters Give Awkward Sidelight Windows A Custom Appearance

Sidelights are the thin windows that flank a door. They give your entryway more sunlight and a view outdoors. They also allow people to look right into your Kingsport house or they blind you with glaring sunlight if you don’t have a way to block them.

Because sidelights are so slender, they look best with custom-made plantation shutters. The neat lines of the shutters set off skinny sidelights that are otherwise overcome by waving curtains or blind cords. Their louvers give your entryway an attractive design detail and texture. You can choose from three different sizes of louvers and multiple neutral hues to get the style you want. Pick from crisp white Polywood® shutters or the warm colors of premium wood Ovation® shutters to seamlessly match or complement the trim surrounding your front door.

Circle shaped window in Kingsport 

Interior Shutters Fit Charming Eyebrow And Circle Windows

“Eyebrow” windows are slim arched windows over doors. You might also find circular windows over doors or on them. Both shapes add a lot of interest to the exterior of your Kingsport house and its entrance but can be a pain if they look in a direction that lets in a lot of sunlight.

You can hide these windows with blinds or a shade, but you’ll give up their charming shapes. Instead, try plantation shutters. Plantation shutters can be customized to fit any window shape--even tricky curved ones. You can still manipulate them, too. Similar to square windows simply utilize the tilt rod to open and close the louvers to deflect or shut out sun glare in your entrance.
