Our Top Shades for French Doors

Is there anything more stunning than a French door? There is something about them that makes us want to put on our best outfit, throw open the doors, and sing to the birds in the trees. Or maybe that’s just us. Either way, French doors are a stunning feature that deserve to be dressed in the best window fashions. Some shades sit sloppily against French doors and fly about when you open or close the doors. Others have cluttered headrails that bang into the wall from the force of the door. Some are just plain boring. Fortunately, our list of top shades for French doors include stunning styles by Hunter Douglas, like Duette® Honeycomb Shades, Silhouette® Window Shadings, and Vignette® Modern Roman Shades.

Shades near Tucson, Arizona (AZ), that are custom made for French doors, including honeycomb shades.

Top Shade for Energy Efficiency

In Arizona, the heat is on a different level of hot and the cold nights can send our teeth chattering. Since French doors are wide expanses of glass, they leave more room for air to creep in or out. Not only can this make your home uncomfortably hot or cold, but it can cause your energy bills to soar. Fortunately, one of our top shades for French doors is an energy efficient one. Duette® Honeycomb Shades offer energy efficiency by trapping air inside of their cells to keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Are you interested in maximum energy efficiency? Then you will love exploring our Duette® Honeycomb Shades with the available TrackGlide™ feature. The TrackGlide™ feature has aluminum tracks and detachable side-rail clips that attach to the window glass with an adhesive that prevents your shades from flying about and letting air in or out. Instead, your shades will stay firmly in place with each use.

Top Shade for an Uncluttered Look
