What Are The Favorite Front Door Window Treatments For Atlanta?

Dan Taylor

When covering a window on a front entryway, you won’t want something that moves when you use the door or obscures unusual shaped windows like shades and blinds do. You need something that covers your front entryway windows for privacy and light control and shows off their shape. That leaves versatile plantation shutters as your top choice for front door window treatments in Atlanta. They fit every window to achieve the coverage and beauty you desire in your entryway.

Plantation Shutters Offer Full Coverage On Front Door Windows

You’ll often see shades and blinds on doors, but they aren’t the most preferred front door window treatments for Atlanta homeowners who look to control privacy and sunlight in their entrances. They flap at the slightest movement, giving a peek into the interior of your home even after you shut the door.

When you don’t like your window covers slapping against the door, interior shutters are the ideal option. They secure to the window frame and each panel remains in place. They don’t bump the hinges or get pull strings trapped in the door.

And then you can adjust the louvers to control privacy and natural light. Shut them to protect your home from prying people and UV rays or open them for partial light. If you want direct natural light, you can swing open the shutter panel and let it flood in. When someone pushes your doorbell, tilt open your shutter louvers to peer outside and see who it is.

Interior Shutters Give Awkward Sidelight Windows A Custom Look

Sidelights are the thin windows that flank a door. They give your doorways extra natural light and a view of the outside. They also permit people to peek right into your Atlanta home or they blind you with glaring sunlight if you don’t find a way to block them.

Because sidelights are so narrow, they look best with custom crafted plantation shutters. The defined lines of the shutters flatter thin sidelights that are otherwise overwhelmed by fussy drapes or blind strings. Their louvers give your entrance an interesting structural element and texture. You can pick from three separate sizes of louvers and multiple neutral colors to get the look you want. Pick from clean white Polywood® shutters or the vivid colors of premium wood Ovation® shutters to easily match or coordinate with the trim around your front door.

Plantation Shutters Work On Charming Eyebrow And Circle Windows

“Eyebrow” windows are small arched windows above doors. You might also see circular windows over doors or on them. Both shapes give interest to the facade of your Atlanta abode and its entryway but can be a pain if they face a direction that lets in lots of light.

You can cover these windows with blinds or a shade, but you’ll forfeit their pleasant shapes. Instead, check out plantation shutters. Interior shutters can be custom-built to work on any window shape--even challenging round ones. You can still manipulate them, too. Like straight windows simply use the tilt rod to open and close the louvers to deflect or shut out light in your entrance.
