Cellular Shades

Cellular shades are a great choice for French doors, as they offer customizable light control and maximum energy efficiency. You’re bound to be opening the doors throughout the day, but Duette® Honeycomb Shades will keep the hot or cold air out better than virtually every alternative once the doors are shut.


If you prefer a beachy vibe, you can’t go wrong with a set of custom-made Palm Beach Shutters for your French doors.  These shutters will hold up to moisture and heat throughout the year and stand the test of time. They are also custom made to match your exact needs. Once you’ve selected your color and slat size, shutters can be mounted securely so they will never shift as you open and close your French doors.


Silhouette shadings are a fantastic choice for those who want to establish a sense of privacy while still taking advantage of the fact that French doors can let in a tremendous amount of natural light and elevate a space.


Blinds are the ideal choice for those who want full light and privacy control available at their fingertips. While it might be tempting to choose a wood alternative for an authentic aesthetic, this is one of the times where choosing a wood alternative may be the better option. Everwood Alternative blinds match the aesthetic of traditional wooden blinds, and they avoid the risk of early warping or bowing that wooden blinds can be subject to in such a highly trafficked and potentially moist area.
