Window Treatment Suggestions for Entryways, Foyers and Doors in Huntsville

Preliminary impressions are critical. Your Huntsville family’s windows and doors are the first part of your space guests see when they arrive. What do you expect they’ll assume about your home?

That’s why you need to be sure the shutters, blinds or shades you select are exactly what you’re looking for!

At Louver Shop of North Alabama, we transform spaces like yours all the time through custom, local assistance, and a no-cost, in-home consultation. With your preferences and our experience, we can make your dream of a gorgeous home come to life.

Our professionals can help you decide on just the proper window treatments that creates a grand yet approachable feeling to any visitor who is invited into your house.

Here are some personal suggestions for dressing some of the challenging windows in your house.

Entryways and Foyers

One common problem for entryways and foyers is extra-large and/or oddlyshaped windows. Many foyers have lofty ceilings, and homeowners can be overwhelmed trying to select a treatment that works with these windows.

If this is your situation, consider Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Not only are they ideal for really tall windows, they also afford light and temperature control while ensuring privacy.

Or perhaps you need window dressings for arches, transoms, window lights and your door itself. In this case, the most popular selection is tailor-made LouverWood™ Plantation Shutters. They can be crafted for any size or shape of window. 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 shutters look nice from both sides of your window or door and are a solid investment in your house. And naturally, they can be painted or stained in a wide variety of colors for just the right outcome.


Doors are not just a way to proceed in or out of a space or room. With beautiful coverings, they can also turn into a lovely accent to a room’s interior design. There’s a large] variety of window coverings that are perfect for almost any model of door.

Super-wide doorways, transoms and arches are easy to handle, since Louver Shop of North Alabama can offer tailor-made shutters for any style of door and accent.

A usual door can be improved with a gorgeous window treatment also. Hunter Douglas Parkland® Classics Blinds make a boring door into a pleasant accent.

French Doors

French doors are a great addition to any house, but they are even better looking with just the right window coverings.

Traditionally, French doors are dressed with shutters. We have handsome, real wood plantation shutters in just about any stain or color. Or, you can also go with faux wood shutters, like LouverWood™. These shutters can be crafted for any size French door as well as transoms, side lights and accent windows.

Shutters are perfect for any type of decoration from casual to classic to eclectic. With all of the colors and stains in our range, they can become a stunning showpiece for any space in your home.

Our shutters are made with devotion and designed to last for a long time to come, so you will enjoy years of use and enjoyment from them.

You aren’t limited to shutters when covering a French door. For instance, Hunter Douglas Applause® Honeycomb Shades or Applause Vertiglide™ Shades are also an excellent choice for your French doors. Shades and blinds are a fantastic way to have privacy and light control without sacrificing style.

We carry a large variety of shades and blinds that will integrate with your house.

Sliding Doors

Sliding glass doors could be placed in a number of areas in your house. Whether you need to dress them for privacy, light control or purely to show off the room’s looks, you can be sure our experts have tons of products and ideas for your sliding glass doors.

Depending on which room, you might want to “dress up” your sliding door or may choose to keep it casual. For example, a sliding glass door in a bedroom looks beautiful with Hunter Douglas Luminette® Sheers. These light window treatments let in light while keeping up privacy, plus, they are a delightful accent.

Or, a sliding glass door in a living room looks lovely 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 tinted or painted any color to fit your home’s style.

There are tons of other alternatives besides shutters or sheers for sliding doors.

For example, a sliding door in a casual kitchen nook looks so nice when covered by Hunter Douglas Provenance® Woven Wood Shades. Also, 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 used on a sliding door and the windows in an area to tie the whole look together.
