Doors are an excellent opportunity to allow more natural light into your home. Finding the right door shades for sliding glass or French doors can be complicated. Fortunately, Hunter Douglas offers a variety of shades for doors, from shutters to blinds, that can fit any window shape you need to cover.
Front Door Shades
Long side windows on the side of your door seem like a challenge to cover. Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades come in various shapes and sizes that fit almost any window. Plus, with energy efficiency on everyone’s minds, these shades add a layer of insulation to your home. Luminette® Privacy Sheers are a vertical shade with a sheer fabric that allows light in and fabric vanes that keep light out.
Hunter Douglas Vignette® Modern Roman Shades have eliminated the need for exposed rear cords and dressings.The Vignette® is available in two styles: a stacking shade, feature full 4” folds with a low-profile headrail for windows with limited depth and a rolling style, with the option of a 4” fold or 6” flat fold, both of which roll into the fabric covered headrail. Eliminating the need for exposed cords makes these an excellent option for front door shades.
French Door Shades
Most Hunter Douglas shades will fit French doors. French Doors shades are typically mounted outside the window frame and may require extension brackets or spacers to provide clearence. You might also have to create a cutout in the window treatment for the door handle to operate. In a hot climate like Texas, faux wood shutters are often a great choice. In true Hunter Douglas fashion, Everwood Blinds are available in various colors and are guaranteed never to fade, yellow, or bow. These blinds are made of earth-friendly materials like polystyrene.
Hunter Douglas Provenance® Woven Wood Shades bring an organic style to your home with hand-woven from versatile, light-filtering reeds, grasses and woods for a unique appearance. Variations in stain, pattern irregularities, and knots are all unique characteristics that contribute to the natural beauty of your shade. Provenance® Woven Wood Shades come in an array of colors and textures and has light filtering and room darkening liners available for additional privacy and light control which make them a great option for French Doors.
Sliding-Glass Door Shades
An obvious choice for sliding-glass doors would be the Skyline® Gliding Window Panels. A tip when picking out shades for a sliding glass door is ensuring the shade moves from side to side with the door. An obvious choice, vertical panels, are perfect for sliding-glass doors. Skyline® Gliding Window Panels are contemporary and come in more than 600 roller and screen-style fabrics. With that many options, they are guaranteed to match your aesthetic.
