French doors are a great way to introduce more sunlight into your rooms. Contemporary styles offer more personalization than ever before, including wider panes of glass, sliding panels and multi-panel styles.
At one time, French doors were often covered with scrunched curtains or mini blinds. These styles are out of style and can be difficult to keep pristine, even more so if they’re curtains. Curtains also may not work well if your doors slide or have a lot of panels that stack accordion style when open.
When you collaborate with a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of Austin, you can give your French doors the updated style they deserve. We’re here to provide our suggestions from beginning to end, from free consultation to standard installation.
Here are a few of our most popular window treatments in Austin for French doors.
Plantation shutters are a handy option for French doors.
You can totally customize yours with the assistance of a window treatment professional from Louver Shop of Austin. From material to stain to louver thickness, your plantation shutters will look just like how you imagined them.
Wood plantation shutters are a great solution if your French doors don’t get much sun or heat. Add a focal point with our head-turning Signature plantation shutters. These shutters feature a beveled architectural decoration on the louvers and tilt bar.
If your French doors are in a sunny or hot area, we advise our LouverWood® plantation shutters. The faux wood shutters are crafted from a thick polymer that resists brilliant sunlight and extreme humidity without drooping, fading or cracking.
This material also provides excellent insulation benefits, which are up to three times better than wood. That’s a decrease you may be able to see on your heating and cooling costs throughout the year!
We custom manufacture all our plantation shutters here in the United States, so you can choose all the options you are after. This includes cutouts for doorknobs and track frames, if you’d like the opportunity to be able to slide your shutters to the side.
Here are four of our most wanted custom shades for French doors.
Duette® honeycomb shades can help you save more on heating and cooling costs. Since much of your home’s energy is lost at the windows, these shades use insulating cells for insulation and temperature management. Duette is a flexible shade that can be installed throughout your spaces, from skylights to uncommonly shaped windows. Customize these shades with smart home automation, designer fabrics and room-darkening functions.
Provenance® shades are a great way to add an earthy appearance to your house. These shades are created from actual woods, reeds, grasses and bamboo. They can be customized in three styles—Roman, waterfall Roman and vertical—so you can develop a consistent appearance across your home. And they’re created with exclusive weaving methods to guarantee durability and beauty for a long time. Enhance yours with smart home automation, room-darkening liners and decorative options like edge banding or valances.
Silhouette® shades beautifully mix the appearance of curtains with the functionality of blinds. These shades have S-shaped vanes that hang between two panels of fabric. The vanes can be regulated for privacy and light control, while the fabric turns harsh sunlight into a light glow. You can pick from custom features like smart home automation to raise and lower your shades, a room-darkening roller shade and designer fabrics.
Solera® shades combine the best parts of Roman shades and honeycomb shades. The result is a gorgeous window treatment that can help keep your home comfier, no matter the temperature outdoors. Pick from a variety of light-filtering to room-darkening fabrics, from woven to patterned and textured. You can also make operating your shades even quicker by adding PowerView® automation, which gives you the option to move your shades with a tap of your phone.
