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

February 12, 2021

When covering a window on a front entryway, you won’t want something that moves when you open the door or hides unique shaped windows like shades and blinds do. You need something that covers your front door’s windows to manage privacy and light and displays their form. That leaves multipurpose 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 observe 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 light in their entryways. They swing at the slightest movement, giving a look into the inside of your house even after the door closes.

When you don’t like your window treatments flapping against the door, plantation shutters are your best option. They fasten to the window frame and each part 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 privacy and natural light. Close them to guard your home from spying neighbors and sunlight or open them for partial light. If you want direct sunlight, you can open the shutter panel and let it come in. When a visitor pushes your doorbell, tilt open your shutter louvers to look at your stoop and see who it is.

Plantation Shutters Give Difficult Sidelight Windows A Custom Appearance

Sidelights are the skinny windows alongside of a door. They give your doorways increased light and a view outside. They also allow people to see straight into your San Diego house or they blind you with bright sunlight if you don’t find a way to cover them.

Because sidelights are so narrow, they look best with customized plantation shutters. The crisp lines of the shutters fit thin sidelights that are otherwise overcome by blind cords or fussy curtains. Their louvers give your entrance an interesting architectural element and texture. You can pick from three different 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 a lot of charm to the exterior of your San Diego abode and its entryway but can be a pain if they look in a direction that allows in a lot of glare.

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