Plantation shutters aren’t just for windows – they’re also one of the best choices for french doors. If you have doors that open out to your patio and you want to cover the glass panes for better lighting or looks, then plantation shutters are for you. Merge stunning home fashion with functionality with Austin’s favorite plantation shutters for your french doors.
Why Choose Shutters for French Doors?
Homeowners have a lot of options for covering french patio doors in Austin. Some Austin homeowners install blinds, shades, or curtains, but a lot of those have some notable downsides. Both standard and vertical blinds swing and bang against the door anytime it’s opened, whereas drapes snag and can get caught in the door.
Interior shutters on the other hand don’t have to worry about that. Rather than cluttering up your patio door, shutters are more like part of the door itself, attached to the frame. It’s more than that, though. French door shutters offer benefits that many homeowners might not realize until they experience them in person.
French Door Shutters & Light Control
Shutters give your more control over lighting than any other window treatment. Get as much or as little sunlight coming into your home, at any angle you want. Going from fully open to near blackout is as easy as tilting the louvers, all without the trouble of cords or wands.
French Door Shutters Offer More Privacy
Want to keep prying eyes out of your patio door? Shutters are your solution. Blinds almost always can be seen through at some angle, and curtains let outsiders see silhouettes from inside. Shutters are the choice for maintaining your privacy.
Matching Design & Colors With French Door Shutters
Is your patio door the centerpiece of your room, or do you like to move eyes away from it? Regardless, custom plantation shutters can help you accomplish your goal. Match the color of your shutters to your baseboard trim to continue the theme, or go with a bright white shutter for a flash in the room.
