The most timeless and elegant choice for home entryways is without a doubt French doors. They can be placed to lead outdoors or to separate parts of the home, and they tend to have stylish wooden frames as well as glass breaks which serve as windows. While French doors tend to look great as they are, privacy is often as issue. What we often do here at Aero Shade is add attractive designer blinds to French doors, which maintain the integrity of the style of the door while covering the window gaps. This not only serves a functional purpose, but it also improves the overall look of your French doors. Below, we’ll take a look at some of the most common custom blinds we have here at Aero Shade, and explain how they are ideal for enhancing your French doors.

Types of Blinds Fit for French Doors

Before we get carried away with what-ifs, let’s explore some specific types of blinds that may suit your needs, all of which we carry and can custom install here at Aero Shade.

Custom Shutters – Some of our most popular shutters at Aero Shade are our line of designer plantation shutters. Plantation shutters are renowned for being energy efficient; therefore, they are ideal for French doors which connect to the outdoors. When plantation shutters are closed, they can effectively block the sunlight, keeping the room cool and shaded.

Custom Blinds – At Aero Shade, we can create a wide variety of custom blinds to enhance your French doors and suit your personal style. The most popular choice in blinds local homeowners prefer for their French doors are wooden blinds. Wooden blinds create a natural look that closely matches the integrity of French doors. We would recommend bass wood blinds as they tend to have deeper wood grain highlights, adding a unique and beautiful touch to your home.

Custom Shades – Window and door shades are of course a popular choice for window treatment for homeowners. At Aero Shade, we have many styles of shades that can be fully customized to be the perfect fit for your French doors. Though to complement the timeless style and sophistication of French doors, we would suggest roman shades. What’s great about roman shades is that they combine the complete coverage of curtains with the vertical stacking motion of venetian blinds, making them easy to adjust, while providing total privacy when lowered.

As you can see, there are many types of blinds to dress up your French doors, and even more subcategories within the ones listed above! It may seem daunting, but when you rely on Aero Shade, we can help you every step of the way.
