Here are our team’s experienced suggestions for dressing some of the most awkward openings in your rooms.

Entryways and Foyers

One frequent challenge for entryways and foyers is larger and/or differentlyshaped windows. Many entrances have tall ceilings, and homeowners can get overwhelmed trying to find something that works with these windows.

If this is something you’re dealing with, you might like Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Not only are they excellent for really tall windows, they also provide light and control of your climate while protecting privacy.

Or maybe you want window treatments for arches, transoms, window lights and your door itself. In this case, the most popular treatment is custom-made LouverWood® Plantation Shutters. They can be created for any size or shape of window frame. Plus, they are terrific at protecting your carpets and furnishings from heat and damaging sun rays.

You also can’t make a mistake with Heritage Plantation Shutters. These window treatments look beautiful from either side of your window or door and are a solid investment in your home. And certainly, they can be painted or stained in a wide selection of colors for exactly the right outcome.


Doors are not just a way to proceed in or out of a home or room. With classic treatments, they can also become a wonderful accent to a room’s interior design. There’s a great] array of window dressings that are ideal for almost any type of door.

Extra-wide doorways, transoms and arches are simple to take care of, since Louver Shop of Austin can produce tailor-made shutters for any style of door and accent.

A normal door can be dolled up with a gorgeous window covering too. Hunter Douglas Parkland® Classics Blinds make a dull door into a delightful accent.

French Doors

French doors are a chic feature in any home, but they are even better with just the right window coverings.

Normally, French doors are dressed with shutters. We have beautiful, real wood plantation shutters in almost any stain or color. Or, you can also go with poly shutters, like LouverWood®. These shutters can be crafted for any size French door as well as transoms, side lights and accent windows.

Shutters are ideal for any type of interior design from urban to traditional to eclectic. With all of the colors and stains in our range, they can become a remarkable focal point for any place in your home.

Our shutters are built with diligence and intended to last for a long time to come, so you will get years of use and enjoyment from them.

You you can explore other options than shutters when covering a French door. For one, Hunter Douglas Applause® Honeycomb Shades or Applause Vertiglide™ Shades are also a good choice for your French doors. Shades and blinds are a classic way to have privacy and light control without sacrificing looks.

Sliding Doors

Sliding glass doors could be placed in a lot of places in your residence. Whether you need to close them for privacy, light control or merely to boost the room’s looks, you can be sure our team has dozens of products and plans for your sliding glass doors.

Depending on the room, you may want to “dress up” your sliding door or may prefer to keep it simple. For for one thing, a sliding glass door in a bedroom looks gorgeous with Hunter Douglas Luminette® Sheers. These innovative window treatments let in light while keeping up privacy, plus, they are a good looking enhancement.

Or, a sliding glass door in a living room looks clean and unique when covered with plantation shutters on a track. You can push the shutters back and forth for access to the door. And the shutters can be stained or painted any color to suit your home’s style.

There are dozens of other choices besides shutters or sheers for sliding doors.

For example, a sliding door in a simple kitchen nook looks perfect when covered with Hunter Douglas Provenance® Woven Wood Shades. Or, a sliding door in a bedroom can have a tropical feel when covered by exactly the same shades.

Or, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades by Hunter Douglas can be installed on a sliding door and the windows in a room to tie the complete look together.
