Curtain Treatment Ideas for Glass Front Doors


Glass front doors invite passers-by to look inside, creating a welcoming effect for your home or business. But when privacy is required, a glare is unwanted, or when multiple doors and windows create a draft during colder weather, curtain treatments provide a practical solution. Curtain treatment ideas for glass front doors range from modern to quaint while adding versatility to your entryway.

Functional Curtains

Decorative Curtains

  • When evaluating curtain treatments for your glass front doors consider them as a design element for your exterior as well as your interior. If you live in a modern home, think about monochromatic curtains, or woven patterns in keeping with the look and feel of your current design. Antique-laden interiors might get a boost from lace or silk curtains. Be certain to examine both sides of the material, as both will be on display, rendering lined curtains or those patterned on only one side awkward to look at.

Alternatives to Curtains

  • Curtains might be too fussy-looking in some homes with glass front doors. Alternatives include the strategic placement of a decorative screen so that the door opens, but the interior is obscured. This effect can be achieved by hanging rice paper, or another paper that gently transmits light, over the frame or even gently frosting the glass.
