Here are our team’s personal advice for covering some of the most awkward window openings in your rooms.

Entryways and Foyers

One prevalent challenge for entryways and foyers is extremely big and/or peculiarlyshaped windows. Many entrances have lofty ceilings, and you can get stressed out trying to select something that will fil these windows.

If this is your situation, you might be interested in Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Not only are these window treatments excellent for tall windows, they also offer light and temperature control while protecting privacy.

Or it may be that you want coverings for arches, transoms, window lights and your door itself. In this circumstance, the top choice is tailor-made LouverWood™ Plantation Shutters. They can be built for any size or shape of opening. Plus, they are fantastic at sheltering your carpets and furnishings from heat and damaging UV rays.

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


Doors are not just a way to move in or out of a space or room. With classic coverings, they can also become a natural accent to a room’s style. There’s a huge] array of window coverings that are perfect for almost any kind of door.

Super-wide doorways, transoms and arches are easy to handle, since Louver Shop of Pittsburgh can create custom-made shutters for any kind of door and accent.

A standard door can be upgraded with a nice window treatment also. Hunter Douglas Parkland® Classics Blinds make a mundane door into a lovely accent.

French Doors

French doors are a great component in any house, but they are even better looking with simply the right window treatments.

Most commonly, French doors are accentuated with shutters. We have beautiful, genuine wood plantation shutters in almost any stain or color. Or, you can also go with PVC shutters, like LouverWood™. These shutters can be built for any size French door as well as transoms, side lights and accent windows.

Shutters are brilliant for any kind of décor from casual to classic to eclectic. With all of the colors and stains possible, they can become an impressive centerpiece for any space in your home.

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

You don’t have to choose shutters when working with a French door. For one, 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 beauty.

We carry a generous variety of shades and blinds that will fit with your house.

Sliding Doors

Sliding glass doors may be put in a number of spaces in your home. Whether you need to dress them for privacy, light control or purely to boost the room’s design, you can be certain our experts have plenty of products and design suggestions for your sliding glass doors.

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

Or, a sliding glass door in a living room looks modern and unique when covered with plantation shutters on a track. You can slide the shutters back and forth for access to the door. And the shutters can be stained or painted any color to suit your home’s style.

There are dozens of other options besides shutters or sheers for sliding doors.

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

Or, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades by Hunter Douglas can be installed on a sliding door and the windows in a room to tie the whole look together.
