Window Treatment Design Advice for Entryways, Foyers and Doors in Charlotte

First impressions are so important. Your Charlotte home’s windows and doors are the first part of your space callers see when they arrive. What do you expect they’ll say about your house?

That’s why you need to double check the window treatments you select are just right!

At Louver Shop of Charlotte, we revamp spaces like yours each day through custom, local assistance, and a complimentary, in-home consultation. With your design parameters and our skills, we can make your dream of a beautiful home happen.

Our experts can help you discover just the perfect shutters, blinds or shades that generates an elegant yet approachable feeling to any visitor who enters your house.

Here are our team’s experienced suggestions for working with some of the most difficult openings in your home.

Entryways and Foyers

One frequent concern for entryways and foyers is larger and/or oddlyshaped windows. Many entryways have lofty ceilings, and homeowners can get overwhelmed trying to locate a dressing that can fit these windows.

If this is your reality, think about Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Not only are they ideal for extra-tall windows, they also provide light and temperature control while protecting privacy.

Or maybe you require window dressings for arches, transoms, window lights and your door itself. In this case, the optimal choice is customized LouverWood® Plantation Shutters. They can be made for any size or shape of window. Plus, they are fantastic at preserving your carpets and furnishings from heat and damaging sunlight.

You also can’t go astray with Heritage Plantation Shutters. These window coverings look nice from both sides of your window or door and are a great investment in your home. And certainly, they can be painted or stained in a wide range of colors for exactly the right result.


Doors are not just a way to move in or out of a home or room. With classic dressings, they can also be a simple accent to a room’s interior design. There’s a wide] array of window dressings that are perfect for nearly any model of door.

Wide doorways, transoms and arches are easy to handle, since Louver Shop of Charlotte can create custom-sized shutters for any style of door and accent.

A typical door can be upgraded with a stylish window covering too. Hunter Douglas Parkland® Classics Blinds make a dull door into a pleasant accent.

French Doors

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

Traditionally, French doors are accentuated with shutters. We have attractive, genuine wood plantation shutters in nearly any stain or color. Or, you can also go with PVC shutters, like LouverWood®. These shutters can be tailored for any size French door as well as transoms, side lights and accent windows.

Shutters are perfect for any kind of interior design from modern to classic to eclectic. With all of the colors and stains in our range, they can become a remarkable focal point for any place in your residence.

Our shutters are crafted with care and intended to last for decades to come, so you will get years of use and enjoyment from them.

You don’t have to choose shutters when working with a French door. For one, Hunter Douglas Applause® Honeycomb Shades or Applause Vertiglide™ Shades are also a good choice for the feature. Shades and blinds are a simple way to have privacy and light control without giving up looks.

We offer a huge collection of shades and blinds that will fit with your space.

Sliding Doors

Sliding glass doors could be found in many rooms in your home. Whether you want to dress them for privacy, light control or simply to show off the room’s design, you can be certain our crew has plenty of products and design advice for your sliding glass doors.

Depending on which room, you could possibly want to “dress up” your sliding door or may choose to keep it casual. For instance, a sliding glass door in a bedroom looks gorgeous with Hunter Douglas Luminette® Sheers. These innovative window treatments let in light while defending privacy, plus, they are a delightful enhancement.

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

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

For instance, a sliding door in a modern kitchen nook looks so nice when covered by Hunter Douglas Provenance® Woven Wood Shades. Or, a sliding door in a bedroom can find a tropical feel when covered by identical shades.

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