Window Treatment Suggestions for Entryways, Foyers and Doors in Charleston

Preliminary impressions are critical. Your Charleston family’s windows and doors are the first thing callers see when they come over. What do you want them to think about you?

That’s why you have to double check the window coverings you go with are exactly what you need!

At Louver Shop of Charleston, we revamp homes like yours all the time through custom, local assistance, and a free, in-home consultation. With your design parameters and our experience, we can make your dream of a beautiful home happen.

Our specialists can help you select just the perfect window covering that creates a refined yet welcoming impression to any visitor who is invited into your house.

Here are some helpful advice for dressing some of the most difficult openings in your home.

Entryways and Foyers

One frequent challenge for entryways and foyers is extra-large and/or differentlyshaped windows. Many foyers have lofty ceilings, and homeowners can get overwhelmed trying to pinpoint something that works with these windows.

If this is your reality, you might like Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Not only are they excellent for very tall windows, they also offer light and control of your climate while protecting privacy.

Or maybe you need window dressings for arches, transoms, window lights and your door itself. In this situation, the top choice is custom-made LouverWood™ Plantation Shutters. They can be produced for any dimension or shape of window frame. Plus, they are fantastic at preserving your carpets and furnishings from heat and damaging sun rays.

You also can’t make a mistake with Heritage Plantation Shutters. These window coverings look gorgeous from either side of your window or door and are a incredible investment in your house. And naturally, they can be painted or stained in a wide array of colors for precisely the right result.


Doors aren’t just a way to proceed in or out of a house or room. With classic coverings, they can also be a simple accent to a room’s décor. There’s a wide] array of window coverings that are perfect for almost any category of door.

Extra-wide doorways, transoms and arches are easy to manage, since Louver Shop of Charleston can produce custom-sized shutters for any style of door and accent.

A usual door can be enhanced with a stylish window dressing also. Hunter Douglas Parkland® Classics Blinds make a boring door into a pleasant accent.

French Doors

French doors are a luxurious addition to any house, but they are even more beautiful with just the right window coverings.

Generally, French doors are accentuated with shutters. We have beautiful, genuine wood plantation shutters in almost any stain or color. Or, you can also go with poly shutters, like LouverWood™. These shutters can be built for any size French door along with transoms, side lights and accent windows.

Shutters are perfect for any style of interior design from casual to classic to eclectic. With all of the colors and stains available, they can become a gorgeous centerpiece for any place in your residence.

Our shutters are created with care and designed to stick around for decades, so you will enjoy years of use and enjoyment from them.

You aren’t limited to shutters when dressing a French door. Case in point, Hunter Douglas Applause® Honeycomb Shades or Applause Vertiglide™ Shades are also an excellent choice for the feature. Shades and blinds are a classic way to have privacy and light control without letting go of looks.

We offer a large assortment of shades and blinds that will work with your style.

Sliding Doors

Sliding glass doors can be put in a number of spaces in your home. Whether you need to dress them for privacy, light control or merely to complement the room’s décor, you can be confident our crew has plenty of products and design advice for your sliding glass doors.

Depending on the room, you could possibly want to “dress up” your sliding door or may want to keep it simple. For instance, a sliding glass door in a bedroom looks gorgeous with Hunter Douglas Luminette® Sheers. These sheers let in light while maintaining privacy, plus, they are a beautiful accent.

Or, a sliding glass door in a living room looks even better and unique when created with plantation shutters on a track. You can slide the shutters back and forth for entry to the door. And the shutters can be finished or painted any color to match your style.

There are so many other alternatives besides shutters or sheers for sliding doors.

For one, a sliding door in a simple kitchen nook looks perfect when covered with Hunter Douglas Provenance® Woven Wood Shades. Also, a sliding door in a bedroom can find a tropical feel when covered by identical shades.

Or, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades by Hunter Douglas can be used on a sliding door and the windows in a space to tie the full design together.
