What Are The Top Front Door Window Treatments For Indianapolis?

February 12, 2021

When covering a entryway window, you don’t want something that sways when you use the door or obscures unusual shaped windows like shades and blinds do. You need something that covers your front door windows to manage privacy and light and displays their form. That leaves versatile plantation shutters as your preferred choice for front door window treatments in Indianapolis. They work on every window to give the coverage and grandeur you desire for your entrance.

Interior Shutters Provide Full Coverage For Front Door Windows

You’ll often observe shades and blinds on a front door, but they aren’t the favorite front door window treatments for Indianapolis homeowners who look to control privacy and sunlight in their entryways. They sway at the slightest movement, giving a view into the interior of your home even after you close the door.

If you don’t like your window covers flapping against the door, plantation shutters are the ideal option. They secure to the window frame and each part stays put. They won’t knock into the knob or get pull cords stuck in the door.

And then you can tip the louvers to control privacy and natural light. Close them to shield your home from intrusive people and UV rays or open them for filtered light. If you wish for full natural light, you can swing open the shutter panel and allow it to stream in. When a visitor pushes your doorbell, tilt open your shutter louvers to look outside and see who it is.

Interior Shutters Give Awkward Sidelight Windows A Custom Appearance

Sidelights are the slim windows that flank a door. They give your doorways extra light and a view of the outdoors. They also let people see straight into your Indianapolis house or they blind you with glaring sunlight if you don’t have a way to cover 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 hidden by waving curtains or blind cords. Their louvers give your entryway an attractive design feature and texture. You can choose from three different sizes of louvers and multiple neutral hues to get the style you want. Pick from bright white Polywood® shutters or the warm colors of premium wood Ovation® shutters to easily match or set off the trim surrounding your front door.

Interior Shutters Work On Charming Eyebrow And Circle Windows

“Eyebrow” windows are small arched windows above doors. You might also see circle windows above doors or on them. Both shapes add a lot of charm to the front of your Indianapolis house and its entrance but can be an inconvenience if they face a direction that allows in lots of glare.

You can hide these windows with a shade or blinds, but you’ll give up their charming shapes. Instead, consider plantation shutters. Interior shutters can be customized to work on any window shape--even difficult rounded ones. You can still use them, too. Similar to rectangular window covering simply use the tilt rod to adjust the louvers to deflect or shut out light in your entryway.
