Here are our team’s expert advice for working with some of the most difficult openings in your house.

Entryways and Foyers

One common concern for entryways and foyers is bigger and/or differentlyshaped windows. Many entrances have tall ceilings, and you can be overwhelmed trying to select something that will fil these windows.

If this is your reality, you might like Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Not only are these shades great for very tall windows, they also afford light and climate control while ensuring privacy.

Or it may be that you need coverings for arches, transoms, window lights and your door itself. In this situation, the most popular choice is tailor-made LouverWood® Plantation Shutters. They can be produced for any measure or shape of window. Plus, they are great at preserving your carpets and furnishings from heat and damaging UV rays.

You also can’t go wrong with Heritage Plantation Shutters. These window treatments look great from either side of your window or door and are a incredible investment in your home. And naturally, they can be painted or stained in a wide array of colors for precisely the right result.


Doors are more than just a way to go in or out of a home or room. With elegant coverings, they can also be a nice accent to a room’s interior design. There’s a wide] variety of window dressings that are a great fit for nearly any category of door.

Extra-wide doorways, transoms and arches are easy to manage, since Louver Shop of Greensboro can craft custom-made shutters for any kind of door and accent.

A standard door can be dolled up with a stylish window treatment too. Hunter Douglas Parkland® Classics Blinds make a boring door into a handsome accent.

French Doors

French doors are a chic component in any space, but they are even more beautiful with precisely the right window treatments.

Traditionally, French doors are enhanced by shutters. We have attractive, genuine wood plantation shutters in almost any stain or color. Or, you can also go with poly shutters, like LouverWood®. These shutters can be customized for any size French door along with transoms, side lights and accent windows.

Shutters are ideal for any type of décor from casual to classic to eclectic. With all of the colors and stains available, they can become a remarkable highlight for any room in your home.

Our shutters are built with diligence and designed to stick around for a long time to come, so you will have years of use and enjoyment from them.

You you can explore other options than shutters when dressing a French door. For instance, Hunter Douglas Applause® Honeycomb Shades or Applause Vertiglide™ Shades are also a good choice for French doors. Shades and blinds are a classic way to have privacy and light control without giving up style.

We supply a large assortment of shades and blinds that will complement your home.

Sliding Doors

Sliding glass doors can be put in a lot of spaces in your residence. Whether you need to dress them for privacy, light control or simply to enhance the room’s décor, you can be confident our experts have tons of products and ideas for your sliding glass doors.

Depending on the room, you might want to “dress up” your sliding door or may choose to keep it clean. For example, a sliding glass door in a bedroom looks beautiful with Hunter Douglas Luminette® Sheers. These sheers let in light while controlling privacy, plus, they are a good looking accent.

Or, a sliding glass door in a living room looks clean and unique when created with plantation shutters on a track. You can push the shutters back and forth for access to the door. And the shutters can be stained or painted any color to match your interior design.

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

For instance, a sliding door in a modern kitchen nook looks perfect when covered by Hunter Douglas Provenance® Woven Wood Shades. Or, a sliding door in a bedroom can be given a tropical feel when covered by the same shades.

Or, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades by Hunter Douglas can be used on a sliding door and the windows in a space to tie the complete design together.
