3 Door Covering Ideas for your Home

When we think of window treatments, we naturally think of them going on our windows. However, when it comes to achieving ultimate privacy in your home, you may also want to think about covering the doors in your home. Whether you have glass doors, French doors, or sliding patio doors, finding the right door covering can elevate your interior design while providing practical benefits. At The Blind Shop, our top three door covering ideas include:

Hunter Douglas Duette® Cellular Shades as a door covering in a home near Youngstown, OH

Energy Efficient Shades

One of our first ideas for a door covering roots itself in functionality. French doors and sliding glass doors in your home can benefit from a door covering shade that properly insulates the surface area. If not properly insulated, your home’s doors can let outside air in and the inside air out, costing you money throughout the year.

For this, we recommend investing in energy-efficient Hunter Douglas Duette® Cellular Shades. This unique door window shade has a special honeycomb-shaped design that traps air between the surface of your door and the room’s inside temperature, allowing your room to maintain a more consistent temperature without needing to turn on the heat during the chilly fall months.

Dramatic Drapes

Doors are important features of your home. Whether you’re looking for a door covering for your front door, side door, or back door, you want something that will look beautiful and will offer exceptional performance. If you want a touch of drama and style, consider adding some dramatic, flowing drapery to your door as a door covering.

Available in various fabric colors, patterns, and textures, you can select drapery with bold, contrasting colors to draw the eye or ones cut from neutral hues that add a sense of quiet drama to a space. These thicker fabrics also provide added privacy and light control, making them excellent for sliding glass doors that need ample coverage. Additionally, thick drapery can help a space retain heat as the months get colder.

Timeless Shutters

Hunter Douglas shutters are timeless, elegant window treatments that are perfect to use as a door covering. Of course, many people think that shutters are only meant for windows. If you choose from big box stores, this might be the case. However, Hunter Douglas shutters can be custom-cut to fit a variety of window shapes and sizes, including doors.

Whether you decide on genuine wood shutters, composite shutters, or vinyl shutters, you can custom-cut your favorite Hunter Douglas style to fit your doors precisely, giving you premium light-blocking performance. Plus, you can select rich browns, warm golds, clean white stains, and slat colors to complement your room’s color palette or interior design.
