Window Treatment Design Tips for Entryways, Foyers and Doors in Lake Charles

Initial impressions are critical. Your Lake Charles house’s windows and doors are the first thing guests see when they come see you. What do you hope they assume about your house?

That’s why you should confirm the window treatments you pick are exactly what you need!

At Louver Shop of Louisiana, we work on spaces like yours each day through custom, local assistance, and a free, in-home consultation. With your preferences and our experience, we can make your dream of a gorgeous home real.

Our professionals can help you choose just the proper shutters, blinds or shades that creates a grand yet friendly impression to any visitor who enters your family home.

Here are our team’s helpful advice for covering some of the largest window openings in your rooms.

Entryways and Foyers

One prevalent challenge for entryways and foyers is larger and/or differentlyshaped windows. Many foyers have lofty ceilings, and homeowners can get stressed out trying to select a dressing that can fit these windows.

If this is your situation, consider Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Not only are these window treatments excellent for tall windows, they also provide light and climate control while securing privacy.

Or maybe you require coverings for arches, transoms, window lights and your door itself. In this circumstance, the optimal selection is customized LouverWood® Plantation Shutters. They can be created for any ratio or shape of window frame. Plus, they are wonderful at preserving your carpets and furnishings from heat and damaging sunlight.

You also can’t go astray with Heritage Plantation Shutters. These window coverings look beautiful from each side of your window or door and are a solid 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 more than just a way to move in or out of a house or room. With elegant treatments, they can also be a nice accent to a room’s style. There’s a great] array of window dressings that are perfect for nearly any category of door.

Super-wide doorways, transoms and arches are easy to handle, since Louver Shop of Louisiana can craft tailor-made shutters for any style of door and accent.

A typical door can be dolled up with a gorgeous window dressing as well. Hunter Douglas Parkland® Classics Blinds make a mundane door into a handsome accent.

French Doors

French doors are a chic feature in any home, but they are even better looking with just the right window coverings.

Traditionally, French doors are decorated with shutters. We have beautiful, genuine wood plantation shutters in just about any stain or color. Or, you can also go with faux wood shutters, like LouverWood®. These shutters can be built for any size French door along with transoms, side lights and accent windows.

Shutters are ideal for any type of furnishings from original to classic to eclectic. With all of the colors and stains in our range, they can become a stunning showpiece for any place in your residence.

Our shutters are crafted with diligence and designed to stick around for decades, so you will have years of use and enjoyment from them.

You don’t have to choose shutters when dressing a French door. For one, Hunter Douglas Applause® Honeycomb Shades or Applause Vertiglide™ Shades are also perfect for your French doors. Shades and blinds are a classic way to have privacy and light control without letting go of looks.

We carry a vast variety of shades and blinds that will work with your space.

Sliding Doors

Sliding glass doors can be found in a number of rooms in your house. Whether you want to cover them for privacy, light control or simply to enhance the room’s design, you can be confident our experts have tons of products and plans for your sliding glass doors.

Depending on what room, you might want to “dress up” your sliding door or may wish to keep it clean. For for one thing, a sliding glass door in a bedroom looks fantastic with Hunter Douglas Luminette® Sheers. These innovative window treatments let through light while defending privacy, plus, they are a good looking accent.

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

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

For example, a sliding door in a modern kitchen nook looks exactly right when covered with Hunter Douglas Provenance® Woven Wood Shades. And, a sliding door in a bedroom can get 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 full design together.
