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

February 12, 2021

When covering a window on a front door, you don’t want something that sways when you use the door or hides unique shaped windows like blinds and shades do. You require something that covers your front door’s windows to control privacy and light and reveals their shape. That leaves versatile 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 Give Complete Coverage On Front Door Windows

You’ll frequently observe 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 view into the inside of your home even after the door closes.

If you don’t want your window covers thumping against the door, plantation shutters are the ideal choice. They affix to the window frame and each piece stays in place. They don’t hit the knob or get strings tangled in the door.

Of course, 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 direct 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 outside 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 entryway extra natural light and a view outdoors. They also permit people to peek straight into your Boston home or they blind you when the sun is too bright if you don’t have a way to cover them.

Because sidelights are so slim, they look best with custom-made plantation shutters. The crisp lines of the shutters suit slim sidelights that are otherwise overcome by blind cords or billowing curtains. Their louvers give your doorway an attractive structural feature and texture. You can pick from three different sizes of louvers and several neutral hues to get the look you want. Pick from crisp 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 over doors. You may also find circular windows over doors or on them. Both shapes add plenty of charm to the front of your Boston home and its entrance but can be a pain if they face a direction that allows in a lot of sunlight.

You can hide these windows with blinds or a shade, but you’ll forfeit their beautiful 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. Similar to straight windows simply use the tilt rod to adjust the louvers to redirect or shut out sun glare in your entrance.
