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

February 12, 2021

When covering a window on a front door, you don’t want something that moves when you open the door or conceals unique shaped windows like blinds and shades do. You require something that covers your front door’s windows for privacy and light control and reveals their shape. That leaves versatile plantation shutters as your ideal option for front door window treatments in Miami. They suit all windows to give the coverage and elegance you want in your entryway.

Plantation Shutters Provide Full Coverage On Front Door Windows

You’ll frequently see shades and blinds on doors, but they aren’t the favorite front door window treatments for Miami homeowners who want to control privacy and illumination in their entryways. They flap at the smallest motion, giving a view into the inside of your home even after you shut the door.

If you don’t like your window treatments flapping against the door, interior shutters are the ideal choice. They fasten to the window frame and each panel stays put. They will not bump the knob or get strings trapped in the door.

Then, you can adjust the louvers to bring in light and privacy. Shut them to shield your home from nosey neighbors and UV rays or open them for partial light. If you wish for direct light, you can swing open the shutter panel and let it flood in. When someone rings your doorbell, crack open your shutter louvers to peek outside and see who it is.

Interior Shutters Provide Tricky Sidelight Windows With A Custom Appearance

Sidelights are the skinny windows that flank a door. They give your entrance more natural light and a view outdoors. They also let people peek directly into your Miami home or they blind you with intense sunlight if you don’t find a way to block them.

Because sidelights are so slender, they look best with custom-made plantation shutters. The defined lines of the shutters flatter skinny sidelights that are otherwise overcome by billowing curtains or blind strings. Their louvers give your entryway an appealing architectural detail and texture. You can choose from three sizes of louvers and several neutral colors to get the style you want. Pick from crisp white Polywood® shutters or the warm colors of premium wood Ovation® shutters to easily match or set off the trim on your front door.

Circle shaped window in Miami 

Interior Shutters Fit Pretty Eyebrow And Circle Windows

“Eyebrow” windows are small arched windows over doors. You might also see circle windows above doors or on them. Both shapes give plenty of personality to the exterior of your Miami abode and its entryway but can be an inconvenience if they face a direction that allows in a great amount of sunlight.

You can cover these windows with blinds or a shade, but you’ll forfeit their beautiful forms. Instead, consider plantation shutters. Interior shutters can be custom-built to work on any window shape--even challenging curved ones. You can still operate them, too. Similar to square window covering simply use the tilt rod to adjust the louvers to divert or shut out light in your entryway.
