What Are The Favorite Front Door Window Treatments For Southern California?

February 12, 2021

When covering a window on a front door, you won’t want something that sways when you use the door or hides unusual shaped windows like blinds and shades do. You need something that covers your front door windows to control privacy and light and displays their form. That leaves multipurpose plantation shutters as your top choice for front door window treatments in Southern California. They fit every window to give the coverage and elegance you want in your entrance.

Plantation Shutters Provide Full Coverage For Front Door Windows

You’ll often find blinds and shades on a front door, but they aren’t the favorite front door window treatments for Southern California homeowners who want to control privacy and sunlight in their entrances. They swing at the tiniest motion, giving a look into the inside of your home even after the door shuts.

When you don’t like your window treatments slapping against your door, plantation shutters are the ideal option. They fasten to the window frame and every panel remains in place. They won’t bump the doorknob or get pull cords stuck in the door.

Of course, you can adjust the louvers to manage natural light and privacy. Close them to guard your home from snooping people and UV rays or open them for filtered light. If you desire direct light, you can swing open the shutter panel and allow it to come in. When somebody pushes your doorbell, crack open your shutter louvers to look out and see who it is.

Plantation Shutters Give Tricky Sidelight Windows A Custom Style

Sidelights are the slim windows on either side of a door. They give your doorways more light and a view outdoors. They also let people look straight into your Southern California home or they blind you with brilliant sunlight if you don’t find a way to cover them.

Being so slender, sidelights look best with custom crafted plantation shutters. The neat lines of the shutters fit skinny sidelights that are otherwise hidden by blind strings or waving drapes. Their louvers give your entryway an attractive design detail and texture. You can select from three different sizes of louvers and many neutral colors to get the style you want. Select from crisp white Polywood® shutters or the warm hues of premium wood Ovation® shutters to effortlessly match or complement the trim on your front door.

Circle shaped window in Southern California 

Interior Shutters Work On Pretty Circle And Eyebrow Windows

“Eyebrow” windows are slim arched windows at the top of doors. You may also find circular windows over doors or on them. Both shapes give interest to the face of your Southern California house and its entryway but can be a pain if they face a direction that allows in lots of light.

You may cover these windows with a shade or blinds, but you’ll forfeit their beautiful shapes. Instead, consider plantation shutters. Plantation shutters can be customized to work on any window shape--even challenging rounded ones. You can still manipulate them, too. Like straight window covering simply utilize the tilt rod to open and close the louvers to divert or restrict sunlight in your entryway.
