Design glass for doors provides a cost-effective way to receive natural light at no cost to reframing walls to create new window openings. However, the issue of how best to decorate them may be challenging to answer. Here are 12 ways to treat your windowed beauties in style.
Drapes, guy. The first alternative that many homeowners consider when dressing French doors is to place draperies above and beyond the door frame. The result is a thick piece of cloth drawn close at the middle or, as in this case. Pulled in one direction to cover both the door and the corresponding window with two different boards. You’ll want to stack those draperies full on the wall to prevent inhibiting the doors’ operation.
Style tip: A right formula for measuring this stack back, as it is called in commerce, uses one-third of the width of your window from frame to frame. Using two screens, just split this number in half to decide how far outside the window to install each panel.
Shutters, guy. You can’t go wrong with custom lovers installed right on the door frame for a clean, customized look that blends in rather than shouting for publicity.
Style tip: Make the shutters fit into the room by painting the same colour as the walls.
Sliding of solar panels. Perhaps no other design choice complements a clean, modern sensibility such as sliding solar panels. Effective blocking both glare and damaging UV rays can be combined with a transparent window film to further improve the defence strength. They are an intuitive and extremely graceful layer for sliding doors, imitating the look and purpose of the door itself.
Roman shades If there is a lot of wall space between the top of the door frame and the ceiling. Fill it with a single broad Roman shade treatment that will fold tightly when not in use but will cover the whole door with one fast move at nightfall.
If you want an outside-mounted model like this, keep the arrangement uniform throughout the room by mounting all the shades on the same floor.
Style tip: Tightening the fabric at least 2 inches outside the frame provides an excellent visual symmetry and minimizes unnecessary light leakage from the side of the shutter.
Roman shadows (within the frame). One of the most useful ways to use shades to cover door windows is to install a single shade on each window. If you’re aiming for top-down, bottom-up or traditional Romans, each hue would have its own controls so that you can be lifted and lowered independently.
