Front Door Window Coverings

I anticipate that this blog on window coverings for front doors will be very popular because it is a challenging situation. The reason why front door blinds are an issue is because doors typically don’t look great with window coverings on them. But, this option is a great choice, in my opinion. Please watch the video to see it in action.

What Are Some of the Challenges of Door Shades?

Norman Smart-Fit Decoflex for Front Door

Doors move and therefore you need a window covering that will hold it’s position and not get jarred. The Norman Window Fashions Smart-Fit with Decoflex allows the operation of the shade but provides a frame which makes it look like a part of the door itself. The Smart-Fit shades have a set of cords that provide tension to the whole shade. This keeps it in the position you leave it and the tension keeps it from flopping.

You will notice in the video when I swing the door that the shades don’t move at all. One of the reasons that this client chose this product is that they wanted room darkening. I had suggested frosted window film because I thought they only wanted privacy, but they expressed to me how the glare from the front door was affecting the TV. So, it is the functionality that makes such a big difference and this was a great solution for their front door needs.
