Our experts can help you select just the perfect shutters, blinds or shades that projects a classic yet warm notion to everyone who comes into your home.

Here are our team’s personal recommendations for dressing some of the largest openings in your house.

Entryways and Foyers

One prevalent concern for entryways and foyers is extra-large and/or differentlyshaped windows. Many entryways have high ceilings, and you can get overwhelmed trying to find a treatment that will fil these windows.

If this is something you’re dealing with, you might be interested in Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Not only are they perfect for extra-tall windows, they also provide light and control of your climate while protecting privacy.

Or maybe you want coverings for arches, transoms, window lights and your door itself. In this circumstance, the optimal choice is tailor-made LouverWood™ Plantation Shutters. They can be built for any dimension or shape of window. Plus, they are wonderful 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 great from either side of your window or door and are a incredible investment in your home. And certainly, they can be painted or stained in a wide array of colors for just the right outcome.


Doors are not just a way to go in or out of a space or room. With gorgeous dressings, they can also become a wonderful accent to a room’s style. There’s a huge] collection of window coverings that are a great fit for nearly any type of door.

Extra-wide doorways, transoms and arches are easy to manage, since Louver Shop of Metro Detroit can create custom-sized shutters for any style of door and accent.

A normal door can be upgraded with a stylish window covering as well. Hunter Douglas Parkland® Classics Blinds make a boring door into a lovely accent.

French Doors

French doors are an elegant feature in any house, but they are even better looking with precisely the right window dressing.

Traditionally, French doors are decorated with shutters. We have attractive, real wood plantation shutters in nearly any stain or color. Or, you can also go with faux wood shutters, like LouverWood™. These shutters can be tailored for any size French door in addition to transoms, side lights and accent windows.

Shutters are great for any type of interior design from modern to classic to eclectic. With all of the colors and stains in our range, they can become a gorgeous centerpiece for any place in your residence.

Our shutters are created with care and intended to stick 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 example, Hunter Douglas Applause® Honeycomb Shades or Applause Vertiglide™ Shades are also great for your French doors. Shades and blinds are a classic way to have privacy and light control without dropping style.

We offer a vast array of shades and blinds that will fit with your space.

Sliding Doors

Sliding glass doors can be placed in a lot of places in your residence. Whether you want to dress them for privacy, light control or purely to boost the room’s looks, you can be assured our crew has dozens of products and ideas for your sliding glass doors.

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

Or, a sliding glass door in a living room looks modern 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 finished or painted any color to suit your style.

There are lots of other choices besides shutters or sheers for sliding doors.

For instance, a sliding door in a simple kitchen nook looks complete when covered with Hunter Douglas Provenance® Woven Wood Shades. Also, a sliding door in a bedroom can get a tropical feel when covered by identical shades.

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