What Are The Most Preferred Front Door Window Treatments For Boston?

Holly Perron

When covering a front door window, you don’t want something that sways when you use the door or conceals unusual shaped windows like blinds and shades do. You require something that covers your front door windows to control privacy and light and reveals their shape. That leaves multipurpose plantation shutters as your top option for front door window treatments in Boston. They suit all windows to give the coverage and grandeur you desire in your entrance.

Plantation Shutters Provide Full Coverage On Front Door Windows

You’ll frequently see blinds and shades on doors, but they aren’t the most preferred front door window treatments for Boston homeowners who need to manage privacy and illumination in their entryways. They sway at the slightest motion, giving a look into the inside of your home even after the door closes.

If you don’t want your window treatments thumping against the door, plantation shutters are your best option. They affix to the window frame and each part stays in place. They don’t bump the doorknob or get strings stuck in the door.

Then, you can tip the louvers to manage light and privacy. Close them to shield your home from nosey people and UV rays or open them for partial light. If you wish for full natural light, you can pull open the shutter panel and let it flood in. When somebody pushes your doorbell, crack open your shutter louvers to glance out and see who is there.

Plantation Shutters Provide Awkward Sidelight Windows With A Custom Appearance

Sidelights are the thin windows on either side of a door. They give your entrance extra natural light and a view of the outdoors. They also permit people to look straight into your Boston home or they blind you when the sun is too intense if you don’t find a way to cover them.

Being so slim, sidelights look best with custom-made plantation shutters. The neat lines of the shutters suit skinny sidelights that are otherwise overcome by billowing drapery or blind strings. Their louvers give your entryway an attractive structural detail and texture. You can pick from three separate sizes of louvers and several neutral hues to get the look you want. Pick from clean white Polywood® shutters or the warm colors of premium wood Ovation® shutters to seamlessly match or set off the trim on your front door.

Plantation Shutters Work On Charming Circle And Eyebrow Windows

“Eyebrow” windows are small arched windows at the top of doors. You may also see circular windows over doors or on them. Both shapes give plenty of personality to the front of your Boston home and its entrance but can be a pain if they face a direction that allows in lots of light.

You can hide these windows with a shade or blinds, but you’ll forfeit their pleasant shapes. Instead, check out plantation shutters. Interior shutters can be customized to fit any window shape--even awkward rounded ones. You can still use them, too. Just like on straight windows simply use the tilt rod to adjust the louvers to divert or shut out sun glare in your entrance.
