What Are The Best Front Door Window Treatments For San Jose?

February 12, 2021

When covering a window on a front entryway, you won’t want something that sways when you use the door or obscures specialty shaped windows like blinds and shades do. You need something that covers your front entryway windows for privacy and light control and reveals their appearance. That leaves adaptable plantation shutters as your best option for front door window treatments in San Jose. They work on all windows to provide the coverage and beauty you want for your entrance.

Interior Shutters Provide Total Coverage For Front Door Windows

You’ll sometimes observe shades and blinds on doors, but they aren’t the favorite front door window treatments for San Jose homeowners who look to control privacy and light in their entrances. They sway at the smallest motion, giving a peek into the inside of your house even after the door shuts.

If you don’t like your window coverings thumping against the door, plantation shutters are your best option. They fasten to the window frame and each part stays put. They don’t hit the knob or get pull strings trapped in the door.

Then, you can slant the louvers to manage privacy and natural light. Close them to guard your home from nosey neighbors and UV rays or open them for partial light. If you desire full sunlight, you can pull open the shutter panel and let it flood in. When somebody rings your doorbell, tilt open your shutter louvers to peer out and see who it is.

Plantation Shutters Give Awkward Sidelight Windows A Custom Appearance

Sidelights are the thin windows that flank a door. They give your entryway more sunlight and a view outdoors. They also permit people to see directly into your San Jose home or they blind you with intense sunlight if you don’t find a way to block them.

Because sidelights are so slim, they look best with custom-made plantation shutters. The defined lines of the shutters set off thin sidelights that are otherwise hidden by blind strings or fussy drapery. Their louvers give your entrance an interesting design element and texture. You can pick from three different sizes of louvers and many neutral hues to get the style you want. Choose from crisp white Polywood® shutters or the warm hues of premium wood Ovation® shutters to effortlessly match or complement the trim around your front door.

Plantation Shutters Work On Charming Circle And Eyebrow Windows

“Eyebrow” windows are small arched windows at the top of doors. You may also see circle windows over doors or on them. Both shapes add interest to the exterior of your San Jose house and its entryway but can be a pain if they face a direction that allows in lots of sunlight.

You can cover these windows with a shade or blinds, but you’ll give up their pleasant forms. Instead, consider plantation shutters. Plantation shutters can be custom-made to work on any window shape--even tricky round ones. You can still operate them, too. Similar to straight windows simply utilize the tilt rod to adjust the louvers and redirect or block light in your entryway.
