The beauty of the view and the use of our outdoor spaces – these things matter to us in the Denver area! However, you may feel like your greatest passage to your favorite things about Colorado is also the culprit of too many issues. Your doors can provide the view you enjoy, the natural light you love and access to fresh air, but your doors can also be a source of glaring light, drafty atmosphere and harmful UV rays. Have you found a solution? At Rocky Mountain Shutters & Shades, we have some great options when you need window coverings for your doors. Here are just a few of our favorites…
There is a good chance that you have sidelights, otherwise known as privacy windows. These narrow windows, placed on the outside of your front door, allow you to see who is knocking. They also let in light to brighten your – sometimes dark – entrance way. For most people, light control and energy efficiency are the big issues. Don’t worry – you have options! We can also help you figure out what to do with out-of-reach windows near the high ceiling of your foyer.
Window coverings for your doors and – more specifically – the sidelights next to your doors should provide insulation from the temperatures outside and control of the light as it enters your home. The clean, contemporary appeal of Duette Shades, will also provide privacy options. Levels of light control and privacy are available with opaque fabrics, as well as the convenient feature of top, down/bottom, up operation. The energy efficiency that comes from the cellular structure of these window coverings will prevent the draft that can often be felt in your entrance way. The colors, fabrics and textures of Duette Shades will add elements of style to complement your home’s decor.
When you have an entrance way that is considered more of a foyer, with high ceilings and a lot of windows, you need window coverings for your doors and windows that make the beauty of your foyer the amazing entrance way that you once dreamed of. Here’s the problem: All of those windows let in too much light, but having them constantly covered takes away from the experience. Silhouette Window Shadings allow you to enjoy soft, filtered light – the beauty of the sheer backing will diffuse the sunlight, providing your home with natural light without the glare. Automation will let you control those hard-to-reach windows with ease.
