What Houzz contributors are saying:
11. Shades for Dutch doors. Amid all this talk of French doors and sliders, let’s not forget about charming Dutch doors. Matching shades at the top of the door and the two sidelight windows, as pictured, are the ideal solution here, as each shade can operate independently. You’ll save a bit of money this way too, as the door shade will be half the typical size and therefore require half the fabric.
If you have more of a modern bungalow thing going on, you're in luck. The four-over-one top door speaks to bungalows and carriage houses of decades past while the solid single panel bottom, simple hardware and high-gloss black paint say modern. The contrast with the white casings and bright plantings make for a lovely composition.
