Enhance Your French Doors with These 6 Great Window Treatments in Detroit

French doors are a fantastic way to introduce more sunlight into your house. Contemporary styles provide more personalization than ever before, including bigger panes of glass, sliding panels and multi-panel models.

At one time, French doors were often covered with scrunched curtains or mini blinds. These window treatments are old fashioned and can be hard to keep clean, particularly if they’re curtains. Curtains also might not be the best fit if your doors slide or have multiple panels that fold together accordion style when open.

When you collaborate with a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of Metro Detroit, you can give your French doors the new appearance they deserve. We’re here to offer our suggestions every step of the way, from free consultation to standard installation.

Here are a couple of our most loved window treatments in Detroit for French doors.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a handy style for French doors.

You can completely customize yours with the help of a window treatment professional from Louver Shop of Metro Detroit. From material to stain to louver thickness, your plantation shutters will look identical to how you pictured them.

Wood plantation shutters are a fantastic style if your French doors don’t get much sunshine or heat. Add a centerpiece with our eye-catching Signature plantation shutters. These shutters include a beveled architectural decoration on the louvers and tilt bar.

If your French doors are in a sunny or hot space, we advise our LouverWood™ plantation shutters. The faux wood shutters are crafted from a dense polymer that weathers bright sunlight and high humidity without bending, becoming discolored or flaking.

This material also offers exceptional insulation capabilities, which are up to three times better than wood. That’s a decrease you may be able to notice on your heating and cooling costs no matter the season!

We custom manufacture all our plantation shutters here in the USA, so you can select all the details you are after. This covers cutouts for doorknobs and track frames, if you’d like the option to be able to move your shutters to the side.


Here are four of our most wanted custom shades for French doors.

Duette® honeycomb shades can help you pay less for heating and cooling bills. Since the majority of your home’s energy is lost at the windows, these shades rely on insulating chambers for insulation and temperature regulation. Duette is a universal shade that can be installed across your house, from skylights to specially shaped windows. Customize these shades with smart home automation, designer fabrics and room-darkening performance.

Provenance® shades are an excellent way to introduce an earthy style to your residence. These shades are crafted from actual woods, reeds, grasses and bamboo. They can be customized in three styles—Roman, waterfall Roman and vertical—so you can develop a cohesive look throughout your home. And they’re manufactured with exclusive weaving practices to provide durability and beauty for many years. Personalize yours with smart home automation, room-darkening liners and decorative styles like edge banding or valances.

Silhouette® shades seamlessly mix the look of curtains with the functionality of blinds. These shades use S-shaped vanes that hang between two pieces of fabric. The vanes can be regulated for privacy and light control, while the fabric changes bright sunlight into a warm glow. You can select from custom features like smart home automation to adjust your shades, a room-darkening roller shade and designer fabrics.

Solera® shades mix the best parts of Roman shades and honeycomb shades. The result is a beautiful window treatment that can help keep your home comfier, no matter the temperature that day. Select from a collection of light-filtering to room-darkening fabrics, from woven to patterned and textured. You can also make operating your shades even simpler by choosing PowerView® automation, which allows you to control your shades with a tap of your phone.
