Initial impressions are crucial. Your Cincinnati family’s windows and doors are the first thing callers see when they come to your home. What do you hope they assume about your house?

That’s why you need to make sure the window coverings you go with are perfect!

Our pros can help you discover just the right window treatments that offers a grand yet approachable feeling to every guest who enters your family home.

Here are our team’s personal recommendations for dressing some of the most awkward openings in your space.

Entryways and Foyers

One familiar problem for entryways and foyers is larger and/or oddlyshaped windows. Many foyers have lofty ceilings, and homeowners can become stressed trying to locate something that will fil these windows.

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

Or it may be that you want window dressings for arches, transoms, window lights and your door itself. In this circumstance, the best option is custom-made LouverWood™ Plantation Shutters. They can be produced for any measure or shape of window. Plus, they are fantastic at sheltering your carpets and furnishings from heat and damaging sunlight.

You also can’t go astray with Heritage Plantation Shutters. These shutters look beautiful from each side of your window or door and are a true investment in your home. And naturally, they can be painted or stained in a wide range of colors for precisely the right outcome.


Doors aren’t just a way to proceed in or out of a space or room. With gorgeous dressings, they can also be a simple accent to a room’s style. There’s a great] array of window treatments that are wonderful for almost any category of door.

Super-wide doorways, transoms and arches are easy to handle, since Louver Shop of Cincinnati can craft custom-sized shutters for any type of door and accent.

A typical door can be dressed up with a beautiful window dressing too. Hunter Douglas Parkland® Classics Blinds make a mundane door into a delightful accent.

French Doors

French doors are a lovely addition to any home, but they are even better with just the right window treatments.

Most commonly, French doors are dressed with shutters. We have beautiful, real wood plantation shutters in nearly any stain or color. Or, you can also go with PVC shutters, like LouverWood™. These shutters can be built for any size French door along with transoms, side lights and accent windows.

Shutters are ideal for any kind of interior design from original to traditional to eclectic. With all of the colors and stains in our range, they can become a stunning centerpiece for any room in your home.

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

You aren’t limited to shutters when working with a French door. For one, Hunter Douglas Applause® Honeycomb Shades or Applause Vertiglide™ Shades are also an excellent choice for French doors. Shades and blinds are a simple way to have privacy and light control without giving up beauty.

We offer a vast assortment of shades and blinds that will complement your home.

Sliding Doors

Sliding glass doors may be placed in a lot of spaces in your residence. Whether you need to close them for privacy, light control or purely to boost the room’s décor, you can be assured our crew has tons of products and ideas for your sliding glass doors.

Depending on which room, you may want to “dress up” your sliding door or may prefer to keep it clean. For example, a sliding glass door in a bedroom looks beautiful with Hunter Douglas Luminette® Sheers. These sheers let through light while defending privacy, plus, they are a good looking accent.

Or, a sliding glass door in a living room looks lovely and unique when covered with plantation shutters on a track. You can push the shutters back and forth for access to the door. And the shutters can be stained or painted any color to fit your interior design.

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

For one, a sliding door in a modern kitchen nook looks perfect when dressed with Hunter Douglas Provenance® Woven Wood Shades. Or, a sliding door in a bedroom can get a tropical feel when covered by the same shades.

Or, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades by Hunter Douglas can be installed on a sliding door and the windows in an area to tie the full design together.
