Our entryway has been through a lot of changes over the years. When we first moved in, it felt dark and unwelcoming. The windows on the front of our home are open to bedrooms instead of our main living space. Joe and I both love the sunlight and we just had to have more windows in our home. The solution was a new front door. However, the struggle for finding a window covering was a challenge. It had to provide privacy, allow the door full motion, be attractive, and go with our modern style. Luckily, I was able to partner with Select Blinds and found the perfect window covering for a glass front door!
Once our old door was replaced, the quick solution was a curtain that we could pull back and forth. At the time, it was a great decision as I was nervous about drilling holes into our brand new door. Plus, it complimented my farmhouse style back then. But as my style changed, the curtain just didn’t work anymore. The door was also not functional when the curtain was closed and could not be opened from the front. Ps. Our door is from Lowe’s and was custom ordered! They have a great selection and even installed it for us.
A window covering for any glass front door could be any type of blinds, shutters or roller shades. However, our door is about eight feet tall and would be impossible for me to reach and pull down everyday. Select Blinds has many options for all types of window treatments and most can be motorized for hard to reach windows. Plus, the installation was super easy! I literally pulled it out of the box, drilled a couple holes, attached two brackets, and installed the shade.
I chose the Signature Fabric Roller Shade in the color Charcoal to match our painted door. Adding the cassette with a matching fabric insert, makes the shade feel more complete instead of just a standard roll shade. The motorization is part of the easy lift system and is controlled with a remote. It came fully charged and comes with a charger for the battery. However, the battery should last from four to six months.
We are obsessed! This is the best solution for us and I’m so thankful to Select Blinds for partnering with me and customizing the perfect roller shade for our needs. Below is a real-time video of exactly how we use the shade at night – it takes less than thirty seconds, is quiet, and provides the privacy we need. I should have installed a motorized shade years ago!
Be sure to check out Select Blinds for any of your window treatment needs. As I mentioned, they have so many selections for any deocrating style and the customizations are endless!
