Custom Door Coverings: Get the Look, Love the Function

Dressing the doors of your home is an important part of making it your own. We often consider doors to be part of the “tricky windows” family. The way you cover doors matter because of both style and function. They can be large, and they’re used many times over the course of the day. It’s the reason so many clients decide that custom door coverings are the best option.

Vertical Solutions

Many clients come to us thinking that vertical blinds are the only choice for covering doors, and that’s just not the case. While the traditional concept of vertical blinds–made of wood or covered in fabric–may come to mind, there’s so much more to see!

The vertical shades in the Skyline® Gliding Window Panels collection takes the idea to a whole new level. Pairing beautifully with Designer Roller Shades, they feature contemporary materials and wide panels. These shades glide smoothly open or closed.

If you love the idea of vertical shades, but also the flowing fabrics of draperies, another vertical shade in custom door coverings is the Luminette collection. With folds that mimic the look of draperies, these vertical shades open and close along the track. The best feature in this collection is the rotating vanes on the inside, transforming doors from view-through to complete privacy.

The Details of Draperies

There’s nothing more stunning than draperies framing the doors of your home. Choose the dynamic look of side panels that stay in place, or full draperies that function to control light and privacy when needed. The beautiful patterns and colors will make a personal statement of style.

For increased levels of comfort, consider layering drapery panels with shades. The look is dramatic, and the function is well worth it.


The Wow of Shutters

It’s hard to hear “custom door coverings” without thinking about plantation shutters–for good reason! They look amazing, with timeless style. But, even more vital to the atmosphere of your home, the customizable details will enhance the function of your doors. Handle cut-outs and split tilt operation are just a couple of the ways we can create the ideal coverings for the doors of your home.

Those “Impossible” Doors

If you have these doors, you know just what we’re talking about. These are the doors that do not lend themselves to simple coverage. They challenge every operating system, every typical covering. Until now. If you have doors that cannot be drilled into, or are lacking much space to install a shade, we’ve finally got custom door coverings for you!

Duette® Shades with TrackGlide™

The TrackGlide™ system does not require drilling. The narrow track simply adheres to the very edge of the window frame–along the edge of the glass, without being on the glass. Then, the shades are opened and closed no matter what position the door is in. The shades won’t get in the way, but they can be adjusted to control the comfort of your home.


Which Custom Door Coverings Suit You?

This is not a “one size fits all” situation. What works for one home may not work for another because doors can be different. Did you see doors that reminded you of your own? Or, more importantly, are you wondering which system we would recommend after visiting your home? Don’t wait. It’s time to get the custom door coverings that will look amazing and work like a charm!
