What type of french door window treatment would look good in a room that has white window shutters?

Question by Curious Me: What type of french door window treatment would look good in a room that has white window shutters?
My family room has white window shutters. My dilemma is what type of window treatment to install for my french doors which are in the same room. I don’t want to use something that will clash with the white shutters.

Best answer:

Answer by c_kayak_fun
Why would you want to put “window treatments” (curtains?) on a French door? The purpose of a French door is to let light pass through so I don’t understand why you would want to block that or clutter up the door with useless “decor.”. If you absolutely need something over the glass for privacy, the only thing I’ve ever seen that looked decent on French doors is top and bottom rod-shirred sheer or lace in ivory or white. Since your shutters are white, use white.

Coverage of Window Shutter Systems

There are many instances wherein you will find window shutters very appropriate, especially in regards to coverage. This particularly applies to having bay windows. Furthermore, you could have a kitchen window you want to cover. This can get complicated if you go for curtains or even pleated blinds.

In such case, there are some things that you have to be certain about before installation of any kind of window shutter system.

First off, look into the space you will have to work with. Take not of the color, and know if the new shutter system will blend with the décor. More to these, know the size of the space you will be covering. If you have a properly built home, then you are bound to have a standard window that will suit any shutter that is made within its range, but if you have what is known as a craftsman home, then you will be needing a shutter set cut for you.

It will be more expensive if you have your windows custom made, but it is generally worth it. Another factor to take into account is the type of material you will be using. Some opt for vinyl because of its known indestructibility, and because its color is known to never dull even after decades of usage.

Then again, some go for wooden window shutters. It is because wood is known to suit any décor scheme. That said, it is the most used material in blinds, shutters, housing framework, and even boats. There are those who opt for metal. Regardless, you must always look into UV protection. UV coating, of course, is two-fold. With it, you can protect your furniture since sunlight makes furniture fade. Another is skin protection.

Another factor that you must keep in mind is the fact that cost should not be the main thing to think about when purchasing, quality is most important. You will benefit from it over the long haul, and you are never shortchanged.

It could be made of vinyl that is praised for its durability and colors that do not easily fade, made out of wood that will simply mesh with any décor scheme there is or metal that will provide good protection to your furniture as well as give a more modern feel to it.

With all these choices available for you, still keep in mind that the number one thing to consider is the quality. The ability of the material to withstand long years and piles of dust. So start looking for the right one for you and finish those window shutters in no time.
