Create visual interest with matching sidelights and accents on the glass entry door. A centerpiece with corner accents creates visual interest and is another option for decorating without blocking the view.

First center the centerpiece on the door. Trim a panel so that it fits the width and height of the sidelight. The Eden Centerpiece with a matching Eden sidelight works well as a door and sidelight window treatment. Add matching corner accents for more detail.

Trimming and installation should take less than 30 minutes.

Cover your door and sidelight completely with a Wallpaper for Windows™ privacy design and you have a custom entryway that looks as if it cost hundreds of dollars. These privacy treatments can also be used to hide a bad view.

The size of your door and sidelight will determine the size of the panels you need. Allocate 30 to 45 minutes for trimming and installation.

    How may I decorate a French door opening onto a deck from a bedroom. There are sidelights beside it that are vented. We don’t want to obstruct the view but need privacy at night. We are putting 3.5″ plantation shutters at the three windows in the room. We have a lever handle and plantation shutters would have to be mounted on a frame to allow shutters to open and close, and it would need to be cut out to allow the lever to open. If blinds were used, when drawn up, they would stack and obstruct the view. What about draperies. What options do you suggest? Thanks!
