What Are The Best Front Door Window Treatments For Honolulu?

Darren Wong

When covering a entryway window, you don’t want something that sways when you open the door or obscures unusual shaped windows like blinds and shades do. You need something that covers your front door’s windows to control privacy and light and displays their appearance. That leaves versatile plantation shutters as your top option for front door window treatments in Honolulu. They suit all windows to achieve the coverage and grandeur you desire for your entryway.

Plantation Shutters Give Total Coverage On Front Door Windows

You’ll sometimes see blinds and shades on a front door, but they aren’t the ideal front door window treatments for Honolulu homeowners who need to manage privacy and sunlight in their entryways. They swing at the smallest motion, giving a peek into the inside of your home even after you shut the door.

When you don’t like your window treatments slapping against your door, interior shutters are your best choice. They fasten to the window frame and every part stays put. They won’t bump the knob or get pull cords tangled in the door.

Of course, you can slant the louvers to control light and privacy. Close 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 pull open the shutter panel and allow it to flood in. When someone pushes your doorbell, tilt open your shutter louvers to peek outside and see who it is.

Plantation Shutters Give Awkward Sidelight Windows A Custom Look

Sidelights are the skinny windows that flank a door. They give your entrance extra sunlight and a view outside. They also let people see straight into your Honolulu home or they blind you when the sun is too intense if you don’t have a way to cover them.

Because sidelights are so slender, they look best with customized plantation shutters. The neat lines of the shutters flatter slim sidelights that are otherwise overcome by fussy curtains or blind cords. Their louvers give your entrance an attractive structural feature and texture. You can select from three separate sizes of louvers and multiple neutral hues to get the look you want. Choose from clean white Polywood® shutters or the vivid colors of premium wood Ovation® shutters to easily match or harmonize with the trim on your front door.

Circle shaped window in Honolulu 

Plantation Shutters Work On Charming Circle And Eyebrow Windows

“Eyebrow” windows are slim arched windows over doors. You might also see circle windows over doors or on them. Both shapes offer plenty of character to the face of your Honolulu home and its doorway but can be an annoyance if they face a direction that lets in a lot of light.

You may cover these windows with a shade or blinds, but you’ll lose their beautiful forms. Instead, consider plantation shutters. Plantation shutters can be custom-built to work on any window shape--even awkward curved ones. You can still manipulate them, too. Similar to square window treatment simply utilize the tilt rod to open and close the louvers and divert or shut out sunlight in your entrance.
