What Are The Top Front Door Window Treatments For New York?

February 12, 2021

When covering a entryway window, you don’t want something that swings when you open the door or obscures unique shaped windows like blinds and shades do. You need something that covers your front entryway windows for privacy and light control and displays their appearance. That leaves multipurpose plantation shutters as your preferred option for front door window treatments in New York. They work on every window to provide the coverage and elegance you desire in your entrance.

Plantation Shutters Give Total Coverage For Front Door Windows

You’ll often find blinds and shades on doors, but they aren’t the ideal front door window treatments for New York homeowners who look to control privacy and light in their entryways. They swing at the slightest movement, giving a peek into the inside of your house even after you shut the door.

When you don’t like your window coverings flapping against your door, interior shutters are the most preferred option. They affix to the window frame and each part stays put. They won’t bump the doorknob or get pull strings stuck in the door.

Then, you can slant the louvers to manage privacy and natural light. Close them to protect your home from nosey neighbors and sunlight or open them for partial light. If you want direct light, you can open the shutter panel and let it stream in. When someone rings your doorbell, tilt open your shutter louvers to peek out and see who is there.

Plantation Shutters Give Difficult Sidelight Windows A Custom Style

Sidelights are the skinny windows alongside of a door. They give your entryway more natural light and a view of the outside. They also permit people to peer right into your New York house or they blind you with glaring sunlight if you don’t have a way to block them.

Because sidelights are so slim, they look best with customized plantation shutters. The neat lines of the shutters suit skinny sidelights that are otherwise overwhelmed by waving curtains or blind cords. Their louvers give your doorway an interesting structural element and texture. You can pick from three separate sizes of louvers and several neutral hues to get the style you want. Select from clean white Polywood® shutters or the rich hues of premium wood Ovation® shutters to easily match or set off the trim surrounding your front door.

Circle shaped window in New York 

Plantation Shutters Work On Lovely Eyebrow And Circle Windows

“Eyebrow” windows are slim arched windows above doors. You may also observe circle windows above doors or on them. Both shapes offer plenty of character to the exterior of your New York home and its entrance but can be an annoyance if they face a direction that allows in lots of sunlight.

You can cover these windows with a shade or blinds, but you’ll forfeit their beautiful forms. Instead, check out plantation shutters. Plantation shutters can be customized to work on any window shape--even difficult curved ones. You can still use them, too. Like square window treatment simply utilize the tilt rod to adjust the louvers to divert or shut out sun glare in your entryway.
