Window Treatment Design Advice for Entryways, Foyers and Doors in Charleston

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

That’s why you have to double check the window treatments you go with are perfect!

At Louver Shop of Charleston, we revamp homes like yours everyday through custom, local assistance, and a no-cost, 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 choose just the perfect window treatments that projects a refined yet welcoming feeling to each person who is invited into your family home.

Here are our personal 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 families can get overwhelmed trying to select a treatment that can fit 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 afford 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 ratio 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 great investment in your home. And of course, they can be painted or stained in a wide array of colors for precisely the right effect.


Doors are not just a way to move in or out of a home or room. With beautiful treatments, they can also be a simple accent to a room’s décor. There’s a wide] array of window treatments that are perfect for nearly any category of door.

Super-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 mundane door into a delightful 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 dressed with shutters. We have beautiful, genuine wood plantation shutters in nearly 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 type of interior design from casual to traditional to eclectic. With all of the colors and stains in our range, they can become a remarkable highlight for any place in your residence.

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

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

We offer a large collection 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 want 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 amazing 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 clean 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 casual kitchen nook looks perfect when covered with Hunter Douglas Provenance® Woven Wood Shades. Also, a sliding door in a bedroom can have a tropical feel when covered by the same 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.
