Here are some expert advice for dressing some of the largest windows in your rooms.

Entryways and Foyers

One prevalent issue for entryways and foyers is extra-large and/or oddlyshaped windows. Many entryways have high ceilings, and you can get stressed out trying to find a treatment that can fit these windows.

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

Or maybe you want window dressings for arches, transoms, window lights and your door itself. In this circumstance, the optimal option is tailor-made LouverWood® Plantation Shutters. They can be built for any measure or shape of window frame. Plus, they are wonderful at guarding your carpets and furnishings from heat and damaging sun rays.

You also can’t make a mistake with Heritage Plantation Shutters. These window treatments look gorgeous from both sides of your window or door and are a incredible investment in your space. And naturally, they can be painted or stained in a wide selection of colors for exactly the right outcome.


Doors are more than just a way to go in or out of a home or room. With elegant coverings, they can also become a natural accent to a room’s décor. There’s a huge] variety of window treatments that are perfect for practically any category of door.

Super-wide doorways, transoms and arches are no problem, since Louver Shop of Tampa can create custom-sized shutters for any style of door and accent.

A usual door can be enhanced with a beautiful window dressing too. Hunter Douglas Parkland® Classics Blinds make a boring door into a pleasant accent.

French Doors

French doors are an elegant addition to any room, but they are even better with simply the right window dressing.

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

Shutters are excellent for any style of décor from casual to classic to eclectic. With all of the colors and stains in our range, they can become a gorgeous showpiece for any area in your home.

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

You you can explore other options than shutters when working with a French door. For instance, Hunter Douglas Applause® Honeycomb Shades or Applause Vertiglide™ Shades are also great for French doors. Shades and blinds are a simple way to have privacy and light control without letting go of beauty.

We offer a wide array of shades and blinds that will work with your house.

Sliding Doors

Sliding glass doors can be found in many spaces in your home. Whether you have to close them for privacy, light control or purely to complement the room’s design, you can be assured our crew has plenty of products and design suggestions for your sliding glass doors.

Depending on which room, you might want to “dress up” your sliding door or may prefer to keep it casual. For instance, a sliding glass door in a bedroom looks fantastic with Hunter Douglas Luminette® Sheers. These sheers let in light while controlling privacy, plus, they are a gorgeous enhancement.

Or, a sliding glass door in a living room looks modern 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 tinted or painted any color to work with your décor.

There are so many other alternatives besides shutters or sheers for sliding doors.

For one, a sliding door in a casual kitchen nook looks perfect when dressed with Hunter Douglas Provenance® Woven Wood Shades. Or, 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 integrated on a sliding door and the windows in a room to tie the whole room together.
