What Are The Top Front Door Window Treatments For Honolulu?

February 12, 2021

When covering a window on a front entryway, you don’t want something that swings when you open the door or obscures unusual shaped windows like blinds and shades do. You want something that covers your front door’s windows for privacy and light control and shows off 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 observe blinds and shades on a front door, but they aren’t the most preferred front door window treatments for Honolulu homeowners who need to manage privacy and sunlight in their entryways. They sway at the slightest motion, giving a peek into the inside of your home even after the door shuts.

When you don’t like your window treatments slapping against your door, interior shutters are your best option. They fasten to the window frame and every piece stays put. They don’t hit the doorknob or get pull cords stuck in the door.

Then, you can slant the louvers to control privacy and natural light. Close them to shield your home from nosey passersby and UV rays or open them for partial light. If you wish for full sunlight, you can pull open the shutter panel and allow it to flood in. When somebody pushes your doorbell, tilt open your shutter louvers to peer out and see who it is.

Plantation Shutters Provide Awkward Sidelight Windows With A Custom Look

Sidelights are the slim windows that flank a door. They give your entryway extra sunlight and a view outside. They also allow people to see straight into your Honolulu home or they blind you with glaring sunlight if you don’t find a way to cover them.

Being so slim, sidelights look best with customized plantation shutters. The neat lines of the shutters fit slim sidelights that are otherwise overcome by blind cords or fussy drapes. Their louvers give your entrance an attractive structural feature and texture. You can select from three different 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 find circle windows over doors or on them. Both shapes offer a lot of character to the face of your Honolulu house and its doorway but can be an annoyance if they face a direction that lets in lots of light.

You may cover these windows with blinds or a shade, but you’ll forfeit their beautiful forms. Instead, consider plantation shutters. Plantation shutters can be custom-made to work on any window shape--even challenging round 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 block sunlight in your entrance.
