by Charlene 25 Apr 2014

French doors can be beautiful statements. They let in natural light, give you a view to the outside, and can give any space an elegant look. Shutters are the traditional window coverings for French doors, and they can be beautiful. But what if you're not a traditional type of person? What if you don't have a traditional style?


You can look beyond shutters. Here are 4 awesome alternatives for your French door window coverings.


Bamboo Shades

Give your French doors instant texture and visual interest with bamboo shades. Paired with grays, whites, and blacks, bamboo shades can give your home a touch of modernity and unique charm.


Curtains

You don't have to simply hang curtains over the entire doors. You can actually get curtains that fit the glass on the French doors. It allows you to let light in and then keep your privacy when you need it. Plus, this is an easy way to add pattern or a pop of color to your room.


Roman Shades

If you want even more elegance, go with roman shades. Choose from a variety of fabrics, textures, colors, and patterns for a one-of-a-kind look. One of the many great things about roman shades is that you get the look of curtains with the functionality of more traditional window shades.


Cellular Shades

Cellular shades are great for French doors because you can allow light to filter in while maintaining your privacy and lowering your utility costs. Plus, they're a great fit for a contemporary or modern style.


Outfit your French doors in style and make them an extension of your personality. If you don't have a traditional style, you shouldn't have a traditional home. For more window covering options for your French doors, read this.
