6 Best Window Treatments in Birmingham for French Doors

French doors are a good approach to introduce more sunshine into your rooms. Today’s styles offer more flexibility than ever before, including larger panes of glass, sliding panels and multi-panel models.

Previously, French doors were often covered with scrunched curtains or mini blinds. These window treatments are out of style and can be challenging to keep clean, especially if they’re curtains. Curtains also may not work the best if your doors slide or have many panels that stack accordion style when open.

When you partner with a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of Birmingham, you can provide your French doors the new style they deserve. We’re here to offer our recommendations from beginning to end, from free consultation to pro installation.

Here are several of our favorite window treatments in Birmingham for French doors.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a handy solution for French doors.

You can totally customize yours with the support of a window treatment pro from Louver Shop of Birmingham. From material to stain to louver thickness, your plantation shutters will look exactly how you imagined them.

Wood plantation shutters are a great solution if your French doors don’t get much sun or heat. Create a focal point with our eye-catching Signature plantation shutters. These shutters feature a beveled architectural decoration on the louvers and tilt bar.

If your French doors are in a sunny or warm space, we advise our LouverWood™ plantation shutters. The faux wood shutters are built from a thick polymer that resists strong sunlight and high humidity without warping, becoming discolored or flaking.

This material also provides outstanding insulation benefits, which are up to three times better than wood. That’s a decrease you may be able to realize on your utility expenses throughout the year!

We custom build all our plantation shutters here in the U.S., so you can add all the features you are after. This includes cutouts for doorknobs and track frames, if you’d like the choice to be able to slide your shutters out of the way.

Shades

Here are four of our most ordered custom shades for French doors.

Duette® honeycomb shades can help you pay less for heating and cooling expenses. Since much of your home’s energy is lost at the windows, these shades use insulating pockets for insulation and temperature management. Duette is a universal shade that can be hung across your residence, from skylights to uniquely shaped windows. Make these shades your own with smart home automation, designer fabrics and room-darkening functions.

Provenance® shades are a great way to introduce a refreshing appearance to your rooms. These shades are created from real woods, reeds, grasses and bamboo. They can be customized in three styles—Roman, waterfall Roman and vertical—so you can develop a cohesive look across your residence. And they’re created with exclusive weaving practices to guarantee durability and beauty for many years. Enhance yours with smart home automation, room-darkening liners and decorative options like edge banding or valances.

Silhouette® shades attractively combine the look of curtains with the usefulness of blinds. These shades feature S-shaped vanes that float between two layers of fabric. The vanes can be modified for privacy and light control, while the fabric changes strong sunlight into a soft glow. You can select from custom options like smart home automation to move your shades, a room-darkening roller shade and designer fabrics.

Solera® shades blend the best features of Roman shades and honeycomb shades. The result is a gorgeous window treatment that can help keep your residence more comfortable, no matter the temperature outdoors. Pick from a collection of light-filtering to room-darkening fabrics, from woven to patterned and textured. You can also make raising and lowering your shades even quicker by including PowerView® automation, which gives you the ability to move your shades with a tap of your phone.
