Plantation Shutters for French Doors in Austin

Windows aren’t the only places you can use plantation shutters – french doors make great use of custom shutters as well. If you have doors that open out to your patio and you want to cover the glass panes for better lighting or looks, you might be in the market for shutters. Merge eye-catching 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 french door window treatments in Austin. Many 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, and drapes snag and can get caught in the door.

Interior shutters on the other hand don’t have those downsides. 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. Plantation shutters for french doors offer benefits that many homeowners might not realize until they see them. 
French Door Shutters & Light Control

Shutters give your more control over lighting than any other window treatment. Let in as much light as you want, at any angle you want. Going from fully open to near blackout is as easy as tilting the louvers, without wasting time messing with cords or wands.

French Door Shutters Offer More Privacy

Want to keep outside eyes from seeing through your patio door? Shutters are your solution. While blinds can be seen through at certain angles curtains let outsiders see silhouettes from inside. Shutters are the best solution for privacy.

Matching Design & Colors With French Door Shutters

Is your patio door the focus 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 pick a bright white shutter for a flash in the room.
