What Are The Best Front Door Window Treatments For Virginia Beach?

February 12, 2021

When covering a window on a front door, you don’t want something that moves when you open the door or obscures unique shaped windows like shades and blinds do. You need something that covers your front door windows to control privacy and light and displays their shape. That leaves versatile plantation shutters as your top option for front door window treatments in Virginia Beach. They work on every window to give the coverage and grandeur you desire for your entrance.

Plantation Shutters Give Total Coverage For Front Door Windows

You’ll frequently find shades and blinds on a front door, but they aren’t the favorite front door window treatments for Virginia Beach homeowners who need to manage privacy and light in their entrances. They flap at the slightest movement, giving a view into the interior of your house even after you close the door.

When you don’t like your window covers smacking against the door, interior shutters are your best bet. They attach to the window frame and every part stays put. They won’t bump the doorknob or get pull strings tangled in the door.

Of course, you can adjust the louvers to bring in light and privacy. Close them to protect your home from intrusive passersby and sunlight or open them for partial light. If you want unfiltered sunlight, you can pull open the shutter panel and let it stream in. When someone pushes your doorbell, crack open your shutter louvers to peer at your stoop and see who is there.

Plantation Shutters Provide Tricky Sidelight Windows With A Custom Look

Sidelights are the slim windows that flank a door. They give your doorways more light and a view of the outdoors. They also allow people to see right into your Virginia Beach house or they blind you with intense sunlight if you don’t have a way to cover them.

Because sidelights are so slender, they look best with customized plantation shutters. The crisp lines of the shutters suit slim sidelights that are otherwise overcome by fussy drapes or blind strings. Their louvers give your entryway an appealing structural feature and texture. You can select from three different sizes of louvers and multiple neutral colors to get the style you want. Pick from clean white Polywood® shutters or the warm hues of premium wood Ovation® shutters to seamlessly match or complement the trim surrounding your front door.

Plantation Shutters Fit Lovely Eyebrow And Circle Windows

“Eyebrow” windows are small arched windows at the top of doors. You may also find circle windows above doors or on them. Both shapes offer personality to the exterior of your Virginia Beach home and its entrance but can be an annoyance if they look in a direction that lets in a lot of sunlight.

You may hide these windows with blinds or a shade, but you’ll give up their lovely forms. Instead, try plantation shutters. Interior shutters can be customized to fit any window shape--even awkward curved ones. You can still manipulate them, too. Similar to rectangular window treatment simply use the tilt rod to open and close the louvers to divert or restrict sunlight in your entryway.
