What Are The Most Preferred Front Door Window Treatments For San Diego?

Tyson Williams

When covering a window on a front entryway, you won’t want something that moves when you open the door or hides unusual shaped windows like shades and blinds do. You want something that covers your front door windows to manage privacy and light and shows off their form. That leaves versatile plantation shutters as your best choice for front door window treatments in San Diego. They fit every window to achieve the coverage and grandeur you want in your entryway.

Interior Shutters Offer Total Coverage On Front Door Windows

You’ll frequently see blinds and shades on doors, but they aren’t the ideal front door window treatments for San Diego homeowners who need to control privacy and sunlight in their entryways. They swing at the slightest movement, giving a look into the inside of your house even after you shut the door.

When you don’t like your window covers smacking against the door, plantation shutters are your best choice. They fasten to the window frame and each piece stays put. They don’t knock into the doorknob or get pull cords stuck in the door.

Then, you can tilt the louvers to bring in light and privacy. Close them to guard your home from snooping passersby and sunlight or open them for partial light. If you desire full sunlight, you can open the shutter panel and let it stream in. When a visitor pushes your doorbell, tilt open your shutter louvers to peep at your stoop and see who it is.

Plantation Shutters Give Difficult Sidelight Windows A Custom Appearance

Sidelights are the skinny windows that flank a door. They give your doorways increased light and a view outside. They also let people see straight into your San Diego house or they blind you when the sun is too intense if you don’t have a way to cover them.

Because sidelights are so narrow, they look best with custom-made plantation shutters. The neat lines of the shutters fit thin sidelights that are otherwise overcome by waving drapes or blind cords. Their louvers give your entrance an appealing architectural element and texture. You can pick from three separate sizes of louvers and multiple neutral hues to get the style you want. Pick from bright white Polywood® shutters or the vivid colors of premium wood Ovation® shutters to effortlessly match or complement the trim around your front door.

Circle shaped window in San Diego 

Interior Shutters Fit Pretty Circle And Eyebrow Windows

“Eyebrow” windows are slim arched windows above doors. You might also see circle windows over doors or on them. Both shapes offer plenty of personality to the face of your San Diego abode and its entryway but can be an inconvenience if they look in a direction that allows in a lot of glare.

You may cover these windows with blinds or a shade, but you’ll give up their charming shapes. Instead, try plantation shutters. Plantation shutters can be customized to work on any window shape--even difficult round ones. You can still operate them, too. Just like on rectangular windows simply utilize the tilt rod to open and close the louvers to redirect or restrict sunlight in your entrance.
