Entryways and Foyers

One familiar challenge for entryways and foyers is big and/or oddlyshaped windows. Many foyers have tall ceilings, and families can get stressed out trying to pinpoint a treatment that works with these windows.

If this is your reality, you might like Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Not only are these window treatments great for really tall windows, they also give rooms light and control of your climate while protecting privacy.

Or it may be that you require coverings for arches, transoms, window lights and your door itself. In this situation, the top treatment is tailor-made LouverWood® Plantation Shutters. They can be created for any measure or shape of opening. Plus, they are fantastic at preserving your carpets and furnishings from heat and damaging sunlight.

You also can’t go astray with Heritage Plantation Shutters. These window treatments look gorgeous from either side of your window or door and are a true investment in your space. And certainly, they can be painted or stained in a wide array of colors for precisely the right effect.


Doors are more than just a way to go in or out of a house or room. With beautiful treatments, they can also become a wonderful accent to a room’s décor. There’s a large] range of window dressings that are wonderful for practically any kind of door.

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

French Doors

French doors are a chic component in any home, but they are even better with simply the right window coverings.

Most times, French doors are dressed with shutters. We have handsome, real wood plantation shutters in nearly any stain or color. Or, you can also go with poly shutters, like LouverWood®. These shutters can be built for any size French door as well as transoms, side lights and accent windows.

Shutters are perfect for any type of furnishings from urban to classical to eclectic. With all of the colors and stains possible, they can become an impressive focal point for any room in your house.

Our shutters are crafted with diligence and intended to last for decades, so you will enjoy years of use and enjoyment from them.

You you can explore other options than shutters when covering a French door. For instance, Hunter Douglas Applause® Honeycomb Shades or Applause Vertiglide™ Shades are also perfect for your French doors. Shades and blinds are a great way to have privacy and light control without letting go of beauty.

Sliding Doors

Sliding glass doors can be found in many places in your house. Whether you have to dress them for privacy, light control or simply to boost the room’s design, you can be assured our experts have tons of products and plans for your sliding glass doors.

Depending on the room, you might want to “dress up” your sliding door or may wish to keep it casual. For example, a sliding glass door in a bedroom looks gorgeous with Hunter Douglas Luminette® Sheers. These sheers let in light while keeping up privacy, plus, they are a good looking accent.

Or, a sliding glass door in a living room looks even better and unique when dressed with plantation shutters on a track. You can push the shutters back and forth for a way to the door. And the shutters can be finished or painted any color to work with your interior design.
