Today's exterior doors come in a variety of styles with windows in a myriad of shapes and sizes. Exterior doors that have oval windows, while stylish and functional, may lead to difficulty in finding coverings that fit. Thinking outside the box can lead to window coverings that are unusual in design and assist with adding privacy.

Custom Fit Shades
Window shades come in a variety of colours and can be customised to fit windows of almost any shape and size. You can purchase the shades in stores that specialise in window shades and coverings. Because oval windows may vary in length and width, measure your windows first before choosing a window shade that will work for the oval window on your front door. Because the shades are oftentimes custom made to fit a particular window, if the shade does not fit correctly, the store may not take them back or offer a refund.
Decorative Window Film
Decorative window film is another option to provide privacy for entry doors that have oval-shaped windows. Window film comes in a myriad of designs, colours and patterns and can be easily cut to fit without the need to hire a professional. Window film is typically found in most home improvement stores and can usually be purchased for less than £16 per roll in 2010. To apply, start by measuring your window. Using a pen or pencil, trace an outline of the window, and use the outline as a base as you cut the window film for application. Once cut, peel off the backing and apply smoothly, making sure to avoid letting air in between the windows and the film to prevent bubbling.
Arched Floral Swags
If privacy is not an issue and you are simply looking for something to add style to your oval windows, add a swag of silk or dried flowers over the window. You can purchase floral swags at most home decor shops in a variety of colours. Floral swags come in arched shapes that cascade down the sides of your oval window or in straight styles that stretch out over the top of the window. Floral swags can also be customised to celebrate a number of holidays by adding seasonal pieces, such as autumn leaves or holly for a festive look.
