Initial impressions are powerful. Your Kansas City family’s windows and doors are the first bit of your space visitors see when they arrive. What do you hope they think about your home?

Here are some expert advice for covering some of the most difficult windows in your home.

Entryways and Foyers

One common issue for entryways and foyers is larger and/or differentlyshaped windows. Many entrances have tall ceilings, and you can get stressed out trying to select 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 securing privacy.

Or perhaps you require coverings for arches, transoms, window lights and your door itself. In this case, the top selection is custom-made LouverWood™ Plantation Shutters. They can be created for any measure or shape of window frame. Plus, they are fantastic at preserving your carpets and furnishings from heat and damaging sun rays.

You also can’t make a mistake with Heritage Plantation Shutters. These window treatments look gorgeous from both sides 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 home or room. With gorgeous coverings, they can also be a natural accent to a room’s décor. There’s a wide] selection 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 tailor-made shutters for any type of door and accent.

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

French Doors

French doors are a chic feature in 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 excellent 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 house.

Our shutters are created with care and intended to be around for decades, 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 one, Hunter Douglas Applause® Honeycomb Shades or Applause Vertiglide™ Shades are also great for French doors. Shades and blinds are a fantastic way to have privacy and light control without letting go of looks.

We supply a large array of shades and blinds that will complement your style.

Sliding Doors

Sliding glass doors can be found in many rooms in your home. Whether you want to close them for privacy, light control or merely to complement the room’s looks, you can be sure our pros 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 clean. For instance, a sliding glass door in a bedroom looks amazing with Hunter Douglas Luminette® Sheers. These light window treatments let in light while maintaining privacy, plus, they are a delightful accent.

Or, a sliding glass door in a living room looks modern and unique when created with plantation shutters on a track. You can slide the shutters back and forth for access 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. Also, a sliding door in a bedroom can find a tropical feel when covered by identical shades.

Or, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades by Hunter Douglas can be integrated on a sliding door and the windows in a room to tie the whole room together.
