Cover Your French Doors with These 6 Top Window Treatments in Richmond

French doors are a fantastic solution to add more sunlight into your house. Today’s styles offer more flexibility than ever before, including wider panes of glass, sliding panels and multi-panel styles.

Previously, French doors were typically covered with scrunched curtains or mini blinds. These styles are out of style and can be challenging to keep pristine, especially if they’re curtains. Curtains also aren’t going to be the best fit if your doors slide or have a lot of panels that stack accordion style when open.

When you partner with a window treatment consultant like Louver Shop of Richmond, you can offer your French doors the modern style they need. We’re here to provide our expertise every step of the way, from free consultation to standard installation.

Here are a few of our most wanted window treatments in Richmond for French doors.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a handy style for French doors.

You can fully customize yours with the help of a window treatment expert from Louver Shop of Richmond. From material to stain to louver size, your plantation shutters will look identical to how you pictured them.

Wood plantation shutters are a fantastic solution if your French doors don’t get a lot of sunshine or heat. Create a focal point with our head-turning Signature plantation shutters. These shutters feature a beveled architectural decoration on the louvers and tilt bar.

If your French doors are in a sunny or humid space, we suggest our LouverWood™ plantation shutters. The faux wood shutters are created from a dense polymer that weathers brilliant sunlight and extreme humidity without buckling, yellowing or flaking.

This material also gives great insulation capabilities, which are up to three times better than wood. That’s a decrease you may be able to see on your energy costs throughout the year!

We custom build all our plantation shutters here in the U.S., so you can select all the options you are after. This covers cutouts for doorknobs and track frames, if you’d like the choice to be able to slide your shutters to the side.


Here are four of our most wanted custom shades for French doors.

Duette® honeycomb shades can help you save more on heating and cooling expenses. Since much of your home’s energy is lost at the windows, these shades rely on insulating pockets for insulation and temperature management. Duette is a universal shade that can be hung around your rooms, from skylights to uncommonly shaped windows. Create these shades just like you want them with smart home automation, designer fabrics and room-darkening capabilities.

Provenance® shades are a fantastic way to add a natural style to your spaces. These shades are created from natural woods, reeds, grasses and bamboo. They come in three styles—Roman, waterfall Roman and vertical—so you can create a matching look throughout your residence. And they’re made with special weaving practices to provide durability and beauty for years. Customize yours with smart home automation, room-darkening liners and decorative features like edge banding or valances.

Silhouette® shades seamlessly mix the appearance of curtains with the performance of blinds. These shades feature S-shaped vanes that float between two pieces of fabric. The vanes can be regulated for privacy and light control, while the fabric changes strong sunlight into a warm glow. You can pick from custom features like smart home automation to open and close your shades, a room-darkening roller shade and designer fabrics.

Solera® shades blend the best features of Roman shades and honeycomb shades. The outcome is an unattractive window treatment that can help keep your residence comfier, no matter the temperature outside. Pick from a variety of light-filtering to room-darkening fabrics, from woven to patterned and textured. You can also make moving your shades even faster by including PowerView® automation, which gives you the option to adjust your shades with a tap of your phone.
