The Latest Styles of Shades for Doors of All Kinds

Doors hold a unique place in the home-they are a transitional element that connects a home's interiors with the world around it. And, since doors are a functional necessity in the home, finding shades for doors is as much about meeting practical needs as it is about elevating décor. In the Hunter Douglas® collection of window treatments for doors, homeowners can find treatments ideal for any style door in their home.

Window Treatments for French Doors

When dressing French doors, there are two primary considerations to remember. Window treatments for French doors need to be installed on the door itself so that they won't interfere with the opening and closing of said door. Any blinds or shades also need the flexibility of custom shaping so that you can fit them around door knobs or other features.

Plantation-style shutters make excellent shades for doors that swing open; they meet both criteria of being installed directly to doors while also having options to be tailored precisely to specialty door shapes in your home. In the Hunter Douglas® collection of shutters, NewStyle® Composite Shutters are a durable option with high-end looks suitable for French doors.

Window Treatments for Sliding Patio Doors

For sliding patio doors, vertical treatments that can slide along with your door are a must-have. Unlike other dealers, Hunter Douglas® has several modern twists on vertical blinds that elevate style with exquisite fabrics and a unique panel track system.

Skyline® Panel-Track Blinds and Alustra® Woven Textures® Panel-Track Blinds use fabric-covered panels that slide across a track system to open and close. They provide privacy and light control when needed, have a distinct and striking visual style, and, when open, stack chicly to the side to allow for unincumbered views.

Drapery is a second popular option for shades for sliding patio doors because they move left-to-right in tandem with sliding doors and add visual interest to décor. Hunter Douglas® Design Studio™ Drapery has hundreds of textile, color, and pattern choices in their fabric library, including lines of exclusive designer prints made by contemporary artists specifically for the Design Studio™ collection. Additionally, motorized operating systems add a layer of convenient control for homeowners, updating traditional shades for doors to suit the modern needs of twenty-first-century families.

Window treatments for Glass Doors

Glass in any form in a home, be that in doors or windows, represents a vulnerability for energy efficiency; as much as 30% of the unwanted energy exchange between the interior of a home and the outside world happens through the home's glass features.

So, to improve efficiency opt for window treatments for doors that have insulating abilities to help stabilize interior temperatures by reducing energy loss. Cellular honeycomb shades are renowned for their insulating power, thanks to their built-in air pockets that create an insulating layer over windows and doors. Duette® Cellular Shades come in single - or double-cell designs with horizontal and vertical operating systems, making them ideal shades for glass doors that swing open or slide side-to-side.
