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

Curtis Orton

When covering a window on a front entryway, you won’t want something that swings 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 elegance you want for your entrance.

Interior Shutters Provide Total Coverage For Front Door Windows

You’ll sometimes see shades and blinds on doors, but they aren’t the favorite front door window treatments for San Jose homeowners who want to control privacy and light in their entrances. They swing at the slightest 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 piece stays put. They don’t bump the knob or get pull strings trapped in the door.

Of course, you can slant the louvers to control sunlight and privacy. Close them to guard your home from prying passersby and UV rays or open them for partial light. If you desire direct light, you can swing open the shutter panel and allow it to flood in. When somebody rings your doorbell, tilt open your shutter louvers to peek out and see who it is.

Plantation Shutters Give Tricky Sidelight Windows A Custom Appearance

Sidelights are the thin windows on either side of a door. They give your entryway more natural light and a view of the outside. They also let people see straight into your San Jose home or they blind you with intense sunlight if you don’t find a way to block them.

Being so slim, sidelights look best with customized plantation shutters. The defined lines of the shutters set off thin sidelights that are otherwise hidden by fussy drapery or blind cords. Their louvers give your entrance an interesting architectural element and texture. You can choose 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 easily match or complement the trim surrounding 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 find circle windows over doors or on them. Both shapes give interest to the exterior of your San Jose home and its doorway but can be a pain if they face a direction that allows in lots of light.

You can cover these windows with blinds or a shade, but you’ll give up their beautiful forms. Instead, try plantation shutters. Plantation shutters can be custom-built 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 sunlight in your entryway.
