Here are our team’s personal advice for dressing some of the largest window openings in your space.

Entryways and Foyers

One prevalent issue for entryways and foyers is extremely big and/or peculiarlyshaped windows. Many entryways have tall ceilings, and families can get stressed out trying to select a treatment that can fit these windows.

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

Or maybe you’re looking for window dressings for arches, transoms, window lights and your door itself. In this circumstance, the best treatment is tailor-made LouverWood® Plantation Shutters. They can be built for any size or shape of window. Plus, they are wonderful at preserving your carpets and furnishings from heat and damaging sunlight.

You also can’t go astray with Heritage Plantation Shutters. These shutters look great from each side of your window or door and are a incredible investment in your space. And certainly, they can be painted or stained in a wide selection of colors for exactly the right effect.


Doors aren’t just a way to move in or out of a house or room. With timeless dressings, they can also become a lovely accent to a room’s décor. There’s a large] array of window dressings that are ideal for almost any model of door.

Super-wide doorways, transoms and arches are easy to handle, since Louver Shop of Dallas/Fort Worth can build custom-sized shutters for any style of door and accent.

A typical door can be upgraded with a beautiful window dressing also. Hunter Douglas Parkland® Classics Blinds make a mundane door into a handsome accent.

French Doors

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

Generally, French doors are enhanced by shutters. We have handsome, real wood plantation shutters in just about any stain or color. Or, you can also go with PVC shutters, like LouverWood®. These shutters can be crafted for any size French door in addition to transoms, side lights and accent windows.

Shutters are brilliant for any kind of décor from casual to classical to eclectic. With all of the colors and stains possible, they can become a stunning centerpiece for any place in your house.

Our shutters are built with diligence and meant to last for decades to come, so you will have years of use and enjoyment from them.

You you can explore other options than shutters when covering a French door. For example, 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 letting go of style.

We offer a huge array of shades and blinds that will fit with your style.

Sliding Doors

Sliding glass doors can be found in a lot of rooms in your residence. Whether you have to close them for privacy, light control or purely to complement the room’s looks, you can be confident our team has plenty of products and plans for your sliding glass doors.

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

Or, a sliding glass door in a living room looks even better and unique when created 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 finished or painted any color to work with your style.

There are so many other alternatives besides shutters or sheers for sliding doors.

For example, a sliding door in a modern kitchen nook looks exactly right when covered by Hunter Douglas Provenance® Woven Wood Shades. And, a sliding door in a bedroom can be given a tropical feel when covered by the same shades.

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