Initial impressions are essential. Your Baltimore home’s windows and doors are the first bit of your space guests see when they arrive. What do you hope they think about you?

At Louver Shop of Maryland, we refresh house like yours everyday through custom, local service, and a free, in-home consultation. With your design parameters and our skills, we can make your dream of a gorgeous home real.

Our professionals can help you decide on just the perfect window treatments that gives off a classic yet friendly impression to any visitor who is invited into your home.

Here are some helpful recommendations for working with some of the most difficult openings in your rooms.

Entryways and Foyers

One familiar issue for entryways and foyers is extremely big and/or peculiarlyshaped windows. Many foyers have tall ceilings, and families can become stressed trying to pinpoint something that can fit these windows.

If this is your situation, consider Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Not only are they excellent for really tall windows, they also provide light and climate control while securing privacy.

Or it may be that you need coverings for arches, transoms, window lights and your door itself. In this situation, the optimal option is tailor-made LouverWood® Plantation Shutters. They can be created for any dimension or shape of opening. Plus, they are suburb at guarding your carpets and furnishings from heat and damaging sun rays.

You also can’t make a mistake with Heritage Plantation Shutters. These window treatments look nice from both sides of your window or door and are a solid investment in your space. And naturally, they can be painted or stained in a wide assortment of colors for just the right effect.


Doors are not just a way to proceed in or out of a space or room. With timeless dressings, they can also be a lovely accent to a room’s style. There’s a huge] selection of window coverings that are wonderful for almost any kind of door.

Super-wide doorways, transoms and arches are easy to manage, since Louver Shop of Maryland can build custom-sized shutters for any kind of door and accent.

A normal door can be dolled up with a nice window covering also. Hunter Douglas Parkland® Classics Blinds make a mundane door into a handsome accent.

French Doors

French doors are a great addition to any house, but they are even more beautiful with exactly the right window treatments.

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

Shutters are great for any kind of decoration from original to classic to eclectic. With all of the colors and stains in our range, they can become an impressive highlight for any area in your home.

Our shutters are built with care and intended to be around for decades, so you will have years of use and enjoyment from them.

You aren’t limited to shutters when dressing a French door. For one, Hunter Douglas Applause® Honeycomb Shades or Applause Vertiglide™ Shades are also great for your French doors. Shades and blinds are a great way to have privacy and light control without dropping beauty.

We supply a huge assortment of shades and blinds that will fit with your house.

Sliding Doors

Sliding glass doors can be put in a number of areas in your residence. Whether you want to dress them for privacy, light control or purely to complement the room’s looks, you can be confident our crew has dozens of products and plans for your sliding glass doors.

Depending on which room, you might want to “dress up” your sliding door or may want to keep it simple. For example, a sliding glass door in a bedroom looks gorgeous with Hunter Douglas Luminette® Sheers. These light window treatments allow light while keeping up privacy, plus, they are a gorgeous accent.

Or, a sliding glass door in a living room looks modern and unique when dressed with plantation shutters on a track. You can push the shutters back and forth for entry to the door. And the shutters can be tinted or painted any color to suit your home’s style.

There are lots of other choices besides shutters or sheers for sliding doors.

For one, a sliding door in a casual kitchen nook looks perfect when dressed with Hunter Douglas Provenance® Woven Wood Shades. Also, a sliding door in a bedroom can get a tropical feel when covered by the same shades.

Or, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades by Hunter Douglas can be placed on a sliding door and the windows in a space to tie the entire design together.
