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

February 12, 2021

When covering a window on a front door, you won’t want something that sways when you use the door or obscures specialty shaped windows like shades and blinds do. You want something that covers your front door windows for privacy and light control and displays their shape. That leaves multipurpose plantation shutters as your ideal choice for front door window treatments in Hartford. They fit all windows to provide the coverage and beauty you want in your entrance.

Plantation shutters in a Hartford living room

Interior Shutters Offer Total Coverage On Front Door Windows

You’ll frequently observe blinds and shades on a front door, but they aren’t the favorite front door window treatments for Hartford homeowners who need to control privacy and illumination in their entryways. They swing at the smallest motion, giving a view into the inside of your home even after the door shuts.

When you don’t like your window treatments smacking against your door, interior shutters are your best option. They affix to the window frame and every part remains in place. They don’t hit the doorknob or get pull cords stuck in the door.

And then you can slant the louvers to bring in privacy and sunlight. Close them to guard your home from intrusive people and UV rays or open them for partial light. If you wish for unfiltered light, you can swing open the shutter panel and allow it to come in. When somebody pushes your doorbell, tilt open your shutter louvers to peer at your stoop and see who it is.

Interior Shutters Give Tricky Sidelight Windows A Custom Appearance

Sidelights are the thin windows alongside of a door. They give your entrance more natural light and a view of the outside. They also permit people to peer straight into your Hartford house or they blind you with bright sunlight if you don’t have a way to block them.

Because sidelights are so narrow, they look best with custom-made plantation shutters. The defined lines of the shutters set off skinny sidelights that are otherwise hidden by blind strings or billowing drapes. Their louvers give your entrance an attractive design detail and texture. You can choose from three separate sizes of louvers and many neutral hues to get the look you want. Choose from clean white Polywood® shutters or the vivid hues of premium wood Ovation® shutters to effortlessly match or set off the trim on your front door.

Circle shaped window in Hartford 

Interior Shutters Work On Charming Circle And Eyebrow Windows

“Eyebrow” windows are small arched windows at the top of doors. You might also see circular windows over doors or on them. Both shapes give a lot of interest to the exterior of your Hartford house and its entryway but can be an inconvenience if they look in a direction that lets in a lot of sunlight.

You can cover these windows with blinds or a shade, but you’ll give up their pleasant forms. Instead, check out plantation shutters. Plantation shutters can be custom-made to work on any window shape--even tricky curved ones. You can still operate them, too. Similar to straight windows simply utilize the tilt rod to adjust the louvers to divert or block sunlight in your entryway.
