Window Treatment Design Advice for Entryways, Foyers and Doors in Kansas City

First impressions are so important. Your Kansas City family’s windows and doors are the first bit of your space visitors see when they come over. What do you hope they think about your family?

That’s why you should be sure the window treatments you go with are exactly right!

At Louver Shop of Kansas City, we transform homes like yours each day through customized, local help, and a complimentary, in-home consultation. With your vision and our skills, we can make your dream of a elegant home happen.

Our team can help you select just the perfect shutters, blinds or shades that generates a refined yet welcoming feeling to any visitor who enters your space.

Here are our expert advice for covering some of the largest openings in your home.

Entryways and Foyers

One common issue for entryways and foyers is extra-large and/or oddlyshaped windows. Many entrances have tall ceilings, and you can get stressed out trying to pinpoint a dressing that can fit these windows.

If this is your situation, you might like Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Not only are they perfect for tall windows, they also provide light and control of your climate while ensuring privacy.

Or maybe you require 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 made for any measure or shape of window frame. Plus, they are suburb at preserving your carpets and furnishings from heat and damaging sun rays.

You also can’t make a mistake with Heritage Plantation Shutters. These shutters look gorgeous from either side of your window or door and are a true investment in your space. And naturally, they can be painted or stained in a wide array of colors for just the right outcome.


Doors are more than just a way to walk in or out of a house or room. With timeless coverings, they can also become a nice accent to a room’s style. There’s a wide] variety of window dressings that are perfect for nearly any type of door.

Wide doorways, transoms and arches are easy to handle, since Louver Shop of Kansas City can build custom-sized shutters for any type of door and accent.

A typical door can be improved with a nice window covering also. Hunter Douglas Parkland® Classics Blinds make a mundane door into a lovely accent.

French Doors

French doors are a chic addition to any space, but they are even more beautiful with precisely the right window coverings.

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

Shutters are ideal for any kind of decoration from casual to traditional to eclectic. With all of the colors and stains possible, they can become a stunning showpiece for any space in your home.

Our shutters are crafted with care and intended to be around for decades to come, so you will get years of use and enjoyment from them.

You you can explore other options than shutters when working with a French door. For example, Hunter Douglas Applause® Honeycomb Shades or Applause Vertiglide™ Shades are also an excellent choice for the feature. Shades and blinds are a fantastic way to have privacy and light control without letting go of looks.

We have a vast array of shades and blinds that will complement your style.

Sliding Doors

Sliding glass doors can be put in many rooms in your house. Whether you want to close them for privacy, light control or merely to show off the room’s looks, you can be sure our experts have dozens of products and design advice for your sliding glass doors.

Depending on which room, you could possibly want to “dress up” your sliding door or may prefer to keep it casual. For example, a sliding glass door in a bedroom looks gorgeous with Hunter Douglas Luminette® Sheers. These light window treatments allow light while maintaining privacy, plus, they are a delightful addition.

Or, a sliding glass door in a living room looks modern and unique when created with plantation shutters on a track. You can move the shutters back and forth for entry to the door. And the shutters can be finished or painted any color to fit your décor.

There are tons of other alternatives besides shutters or sheers for sliding doors.

For instance, a sliding door in a modern kitchen nook looks exactly right when covered with Hunter Douglas Provenance® Woven Wood Shades. And, a sliding door in a bedroom can find 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 space to tie the complete room together.
