Window Treatment Ideas for Entryways, Foyers and Doors in Birmingham

First impressions are essential. Your Birmingham home’s windows and doors are the first bit of your space callers see when they visit. What do you expect they’ll assume about your family?

That’s why you have to confirm the window coverings you install are perfect!

At Louver Shop of Birmingham, we transform house like yours each day through personalized, local help, and a complimentary, in-home consultation. With your ideas and our skills, we can make your dream of a gorgeous home real.

Our specialists can help you pick just the perfect shutters, blinds or shades that offers a grand yet warm impression to any visitor who enters your home.

Here are our personal suggestions for dressing some of the challenging windows in your space.

Entryways and Foyers

One familiar problem for entryways and foyers is larger and/or differentlyshaped windows. Many foyers have tall ceilings, and families can be overwhelmed trying to find a dressing that works with these windows.

If this is your reality, consider Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Not only are they great for extra-tall windows, they also provide light and climate control while protecting privacy.

Or maybe you’re looking for window treatments for arches, transoms, window lights and your door itself. In this case, the most popular choice is tailor-made LouverWood® Plantation Shutters. They can be created for any size or shape of window frame. Plus, they are terrific at protecting your carpets and furnishings from heat and damaging sun rays.

You also can’t make a mistake with Heritage Plantation Shutters. These window treatments look beautiful from both sides of your window or door and are a true investment in your house. And naturally, they can be painted or stained in a wide selection of colors for precisely the right outcome.


Doors are not just a way to proceed in or out of a house or room. With elegant coverings, they can also be a nice accent to a room’s décor. There’s a large] array of window dressings that are ideal for almost any category of door.

Super-wide doorways, transoms and arches are easy to manage, since Louver Shop of Birmingham can build custom-made shutters for any type of door and accent.

A normal door can be enhanced with a stylish window dressing too. Hunter Douglas Parkland® Classics Blinds make a mundane door into a handsome accent.

French Doors

French doors are a luxurious feature in any room, but they are even more beautiful with simply the right window coverings.

Generally, French doors are dressed with shutters. We have handsome, real wood plantation shutters in almost any stain or color. Or, you can also go with faux wood shutters, like LouverWood®. These shutters can be crafted for any size French door as well as transoms, side lights and accent windows.

Shutters are brilliant for any kind of furnishings from original to classical to eclectic. With all of the colors and stains possible, they can become an impressive centerpiece for any room in your house.

Our shutters are crafted with care and meant to be around for decades to come, so you will have years of use and enjoyment from them.

You you can explore other options than shutters when covering a French door. Case in point, Hunter Douglas Applause® Honeycomb Shades or Applause Vertiglide™ Shades are also an excellent choice for your French doors. Shades and blinds are a fantastic way to have privacy and light control without dropping style.

We carry a vast collection of shades and blinds that will integrate with your house.

Sliding Doors

Sliding glass doors may be put in many rooms in your residence. Whether you need to cover them for privacy, light control or merely to boost the room’s looks, you can be assured our pros have tons of products and design suggestions for your sliding glass doors.

Depending on the room, you may want to “dress up” your sliding door or may choose to keep it clean. For for one thing, a sliding glass door in a bedroom looks gorgeous with Hunter Douglas Luminette® Sheers. These innovative window treatments allow light while maintaining privacy, plus, they are a gorgeous enhancement.

Or, a sliding glass door in a living room looks lovely and unique when covered with plantation shutters on a track. You can push the shutters back and forth for a way to the door. And the shutters can be finished or painted any color to fit your style.

There are lots of other choices besides shutters or sheers for sliding doors.

For instance, a sliding door in a modern kitchen nook looks perfect when dressed with Hunter Douglas Provenance® Woven Wood Shades. And, a sliding door in a bedroom can get a tropical feel when covered by exactly the same shades.

Or, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades by Hunter Douglas can be used on a sliding door and the windows in an area to tie the entire room together.
