Here are our helpful recommendations for covering some of the largest window openings in your space.

Entryways and Foyers

One common issue for entryways and foyers is bigger and/or differentlyshaped windows. Many entryways have lofty ceilings, and you can become stressed trying to select a treatment that will fil these windows.

If this is something you’re dealing with, you might like Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Not only are these window treatments perfect for really tall windows, they also provide light and climate control while protecting privacy.

Or perhaps you need coverings for arches, transoms, window lights and your door itself. In this case, the top treatment is custom-made LouverWood® Plantation Shutters. They can be created for any ratio or shape of opening. Plus, they are wonderful at protecting your carpets and furnishings from heat and damaging sun rays.

Doors are not just a way to proceed in or out of a house or room. With beautiful treatments, they can also be a wonderful accent to a room’s décor. There’s a wide] range of window treatments that are wonderful for nearly any category of door.

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

A usual door can be improved with a gorgeous window treatment as well. Hunter Douglas Parkland® Classics Blinds make a mundane door into a lovely accent.

French Doors

French doors are a luxurious feature in any room, but they are even better with exactly the right window dressing.

Most times, French doors are enhanced by shutters. We have handsome, wood plantation shutters in almost any stain or color. Or, you can also go with PVC shutters, like LouverWood®. These shutters can be crafted for any size French door along with transoms, side lights and accent windows.

Depending on the room, you could possibly want to “dress up” your sliding door or may choose to keep it simple.
