Top 3 Tips on Decorating Traditional and Modern DoorsFebruary 28, 2017
Looking for ways to spruce up your patio or entry doors? [company_name] has some excellent design tips to help your doors complement the overall style and décor of your home.
Window treatments can go a long way in improving the look of your patio and front doors, and they also offer added privacy. Here are some ideas you can try:
- Draperies: Draperies are particularly effective when installed on floor-to-ceiling patio doors and windows. The trick is choosing colors that complement your home. Draperies tend to work better with contemporary sliding doors than traditional French units, as they will likely get in the way if the French doors open inward.
- Sliding panels: Whether manual or mechanically operated, sliding panels are great for modern patio doors. The panels slide under each succeeding panel until you end up with a single stacked panel at the side. Sliding panels allow experimentation with prints and patterns, in addition to color swatches.
- Vertical blinds: Vertical blinds give your doors a sleek, clean vibe. They also add visual height and offers better control of both privacy and sunlight compared to draperies and panels.
Forget the side lamps and recessed ceiling lights. You can install a small, simple chandelier on the wall beside your entry doors. With low-voltage LED bulbs becoming more affordable and long lasting, you can hang another chandelier in the hallway to complement the door lighting without your energy bills taking a significant hit.
Invest in Colored Glass
Installing hand-stained glass panels on your ProVia® entry doors can add a splash of color to your home. As an added benefit, this won’t require repainting any other element.
