What Are The Most Ideal Front Door Window Treatments For Cleveland?

February 12, 2021

When covering a entryway window, you won’t want something that moves when you use the door or hides unusual shaped windows like blinds and shades do. You need something that covers your front door’s windows for privacy and light control and reveals their form. That leaves multipurpose plantation shutters as your best choice for front door window treatments in Cleveland. They suit all windows to provide the coverage and beauty you desire in your entryway.

Plantation shutters in a Cleveland living room

Interior Shutters Offer Total Coverage For Front Door Windows

You’ll sometimes see blinds and shades on doors, but they aren’t the favorite front door window treatments for Cleveland homeowners who need to manage privacy and light in their entryways. They sway at the tiniest movement, giving a peek into the interior of your house even after you shut the door.

When you don’t want your window treatments slapping against the door, plantation shutters are the ideal option. They attach to the window frame and each part stays in place. They won’t bump the knob or get pull cords tangled in the door.

Of course, you can slant the louvers to bring in sunlight and privacy. Shut them to shield your home from snooping people and UV rays or open them for partial light. If you want direct natural light, you can open the shutter panel and allow it to flood in. When someone rings your doorbell, crack open your shutter louvers to glance outside and see who is there.

Interior Shutters Provide Awkward Sidelight Windows With A Custom Appearance

Sidelights are the skinny windows that flank a door. They give your entrance extra sunlight and a view of the outside. They also permit people to look right into your Cleveland house or they blind you with bright sunlight if you don’t have a way to block them.

Because sidelights are so slender, they look best with custom crafted plantation shutters. The defined lines of the shutters set off skinny sidelights that are otherwise overwhelmed by fussy curtains or blind strings. Their louvers give your doorway an interesting architectural detail and texture. You can pick from three separate sizes of louvers and many neutral colors to get the look you want. Select from crisp white Polywood® shutters or the warm hues of premium wood Ovation® shutters to seamlessly match or set off the trim around your front door.

Circle shaped window in Cleveland 

Interior Shutters Work On Charming Circle And Eyebrow Windows

“Eyebrow” windows are small arched windows at the top of doors. You might also see circle windows above doors or on them. Both shapes offer plenty of character to the exterior of your Cleveland abode and its entryway but can be an annoyance if they look in a direction that allows in a great amount of light.

You may cover these windows with a shade or blinds, but you’ll lose their charming forms. Instead, check out plantation shutters. Interior shutters can be custom-built to fit any window shape--even tricky rounded ones. You can still manipulate them, too. Just like on rectangular windows simply use the tilt rod to adjust the louvers to divert or restrict light in your entrance.
