functionality first
Natural Woven Shades are still a hot trend for windows and doors. The versatility of wide and tall fabrics makes them the perfect choice for many doors, even with a transom window above.

Fabric choices vary from semi-sheer to opaque to offer delightful dappled sunlight and partial view while maintaining privacy from neighbors or full room darkening with a liner.  Protect your furnishings and wooden floors, and beat the heat of the sun with half-open shades while still using your door.

Many suppliers offer coordinating horizontal treatments like roman shades in the same fabrics to help unify your windows and keep your design cohesive. They’re a great choice for oversized doors as the space taken up by the fabric stack when fully open (i.e. stackback) is one of the smallest of all vertical shading solutions.
sheer genius
Sheer shadings are one of the most beautiful treatments to add to windows and doors, and vertical sheers are incredibly functional for sliding patio doors. They offer protection from damaging UV rays and protect your décor and floors.

Operating options include manually operated by hand, cord, wand, or full motorization. Choose left, right, or split draw to suit all door and handle configurations. (We can help you figure out the best options for you). Their unique 3-way operation includes:

  • Fully open for maximum view and light
  • Closed with open vanes for privacy & sun control with a view
  • Fully closed for complete privacy & room dimming

Panel Track systems offer a clean and more contemporary look and can be combined with roller shades in the same fabrics. They do require more space for the wider stackback but are very popular with active families due to their durability. They’re perfect for doors and full-length windows.

Consider opaque fabrics or solar screens for view and sun control. 


Shutters are an elegant solution offering timeless beauty.

Our expert design service will ensure correct panel configuration and a successful install

direct mount
