What are Plantation Shutters and Why Are They So Great?

Installing Roller Shades on French Doors With Glass Panels

French Doors have a beauty all their own.  They provide us with beautiful views and lots of light; however, what they lack the most is privacy.  I don’t know about you, but I would much rather see than be seen, and I want to choose when that is!  Personally I think roller shades are an inexpensive yet beautiful option for …

How to Measure and Cut Roller Shades for French Doors

I have four complete sets of french doors in my home, one being my front door.  While they are beautiful, the last thing I need in the morning is sunlight hitting my eyes from every angle.  I’ve spent approximately $1K hanging drapes, and even though I love them, sometimes I want to change the look of the house without spending …
