Voila! Window Treatments for French Doors

Abigail Sawyer | 29 Aug 2012 | Door Blinds


French doors are a design element that will add sophistication to your home for years to come. Their built-in glass panes open up formerly closed off spaces to the rest of the home, and give guests a feeling of grandeur when they move from room to room or out onto a patio. However, like any window, there are times when privacy and light reduction are desired- that’s where the wide variety of French door window coverings at Blinds.com comes in. Finding window treatments for doors can be tricky, but with all of the innovative products on the market, you’ll be sure to find one that highlights the elegance of your door.

Roman Shades for your French Door

If you are looking for a sumptuous covering that will frame and emphasize the style of your door, a Roman Shade is the perfect choice. These shades come in a wide variety of colors, textures, and trims that allow you to customize the look to the design of your home. The graceful folds of a roman shade pair well with the clean lines of the French door design, and harken back to the aristocratic estates where the doors were first used. The quality of the brocade fabric means that it will provide substantial light blocking, but an additional room darkening liner is also available for especially sunny areas.

Roll out!

Our last suggestion for French Door Window Coverings are Roller Shades. We offer a wide variety of Roller Shades at Blinds.com, all of which will bring simplicity, versatility, and functionality to your door. They can be customized with a wide variety of opacity levels, fabric styles, and colors. For a sunny kitchen or patio door these shades will block harmful UV rays and reduce heat to keep rooms cooler. Roller shades are the perfect match for French Doors because they offer a consistent look from both sides of the door and do not have any unsightly back seams.

Although we have listed the French Door Window Coverings that we believe are the best fit in aesthetics and functionality, almost any of the window coverings on Blinds.com can be modified for French doors with the use of hold down brackets designed to keep the bottom of the covering secured to the door. Velcro can also be used in cases where the covering will be raised and lowered often, but it’s all up to you.

Be sure to look at our entire collection of Custom Door Window Coverings and let us know what option works for you! Send in a photo of the product installed in your home and you may be selected as our Window of the Week (WOW)!
