Entryways and Foyers

One frequent challenge for entryways and foyers is larger and/or differentlyshaped windows. Many entryways have tall ceilings, and you can get overwhelmed trying to select a dressing that will fil these windows.

If this is your situation, think about Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Not only are these shades excellent for really tall windows, they also provide light and temperature control while guaranteeing privacy.

Or maybe you’re looking for window treatments for arches, transoms, window lights and your door itself. In this circumstance, the most popular treatment is custom-made LouverWood™ Plantation Shutters. They can be made for any size or shape of window. 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 beautiful from both sides of your window or door and are a solid investment in your space. And certainly, they can be painted or stained in a wide selection of colors for exactly the right effect.


Doors are more than just a way to proceed in or out of a home or room. With gorgeous treatments, they can also be a wonderful accent to a room’s interior design. There’s a wide] array of window treatments that are ideal for practically any kind of door.

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

A normal door can be improved with a nice window covering also. Hunter Douglas Parkland® Classics Blinds make a dull door into a lovely accent.

French Doors

French doors are a great feature in any room, but they are even more gorgeous with simply the right window dressing.

Generally, French doors are enhanced by shutters. We have attractive, 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 along with transoms, side lights and accent windows.

Shutters are excellent for any kind of décor from original to traditional to eclectic. With all of the colors and stains in our range, they can become a stunning showpiece for any place in your home.

Depending on which room, you may want to “dress up” your sliding door or may choose to keep it clean.
