A Maryland Homeowner’s Guide to Door Shades

What’s covering the doors in your home? As doors are an entryway into your personal space, a weak point in household energy efficiency, and a major visual element of your home’s design, having the answer to this question can be a good idea. If you don’t, Kugler’s Home Fashions is here to help with professional knowledge and a list of our 5 favorite modern options for door shades from Hunter Douglas.

Hunter Douglas Duette® Cellular Shades in a home near Silver Springs, MD

Door Shades for Energy Efficiency

When we're looking to insulate, Duette® Cellular Shades are an ideal option as their internal cellular construction blocks unwanted energy loss in or out of your Maryland home. This, in turn, not only helps stabilize internal temperature but also elevates the overall energy efficiency of your home. With the Vertiglide™ system by Hunter Douglas, cellular shades can now traverse side-to-side and up and down for use as window or door shades.

Alternatives to Vertical Blinds

The design of vertical blinds makes them ideal as door shades, especially for sliding glass doors that open side-to-side. Building on their concept, Hunter Douglas features the Skyline® Panel-Track Blinds that mimic the side-to-side motion of vertical blinds but trade out the traditional hanging vanes for exquisite, fabric-wrapped panels with over 450 textile choices. The result is door shades with highly customizable styles that can control light with functional precision.

Updates to Traditional Door Shades

Hardwood shutters have long been popular for door shades with their unique louvered design that controls light, provides privacy, and can be cut to precisely fit any number of specialty or cut-out shapes. Modern advancements to this treatment, like the material used in Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Vinyl Shutters, have fortified the classic design with elements like UV and moisture resistance to elevate the durability and longevity of shutters for doors without changing the aesthetics.

Door Shades with Contemporary Style

There are over 4,000 fabric choices in the collection of Carole Fabrics™ Custom Drapes from Hunter Douglas. This vast selection presents endless options to elevate style and complement existing décor in your home. Additionally, drapery can be used to fashion layered door treatments for better control and one-of-a-kind style, or its fabrics can be purchased by the yard to craft custom accent pieces further enriching your interior design style.

Motorized Door Shades
