Windows aren’t the only places you can use plantation shutters – french doors make great use of custom shutters as well. If you have patio doors that swing out and you want to cover the glass for privacy or style, you might be in the market for shutters. Merge eye-catching home fashion with functionality when you choose Clearwater’s favorite shutters for your french doors.
Why Choose Shutters for French Doors?
Homeowners have a ton of choices for covering french patio doors in Clearwater. A lot of Clearwater homeowners choose curtains or shades, but they might have some serious downsides. Both styles of blinds (standard or vertical) swing and rattle against the door anytime it’s opened, whereas curtains or draperies snag and can get caught in the door.
Interior shutters on the other hand are perfect for french doors and patio doors. Instead of cluttering up your patio door, they’re more like part of the door, fixed directly onto the frame. It’s more than that, though. Plantation shutters for french doors offer benefits that a lot of people don’t even realize until they see for themselves.
French Door Shutters Offer Better Control over Lighting
Shutters give you more options for lighting your space than any other window treatment. Let in as much or as little light as you want, at any angle you want. Going from full light to no light is as easy as tilting the louvers, without the hassle of yanking cords or wands.
French Door Shutters Maintain Your Privacy
Need to keep neighbors’ eyes out of your patio door? Shutters are your solution. Blinds almost always can be seen through at some angle, and curtains can cast shadows and silhouettes. Shutters are the ultimate privacy protector.
Easy to Match Colors & Design With French Door Shutters
Are your french doors the focal point of your space, or do you like to move eyes away from them? No matter which, custom shutters can help you accomplish your goal. Color match the shutter to your baseboard trim to accentuate your room’s style, or pick a bright white shutter for a flash in the room.
Pick from Polywood® faux wood shutters, Ovation® natural wood shutters, and other styles from Sunburst Shutters Clearwater.
French Door Shutters With Cut-Outs to Fit Your Door Handle
With blinds or similar products, you’ll need to move them around to access the door handle. But not with custom plantation shutters!
To ensure usability and stylish design, we can custom build either square door handle cut-outs or rounded door handle cut-outs to give you access to the door handle.
Custom-Made to Your French Doors
Our shutters are built to the exact specifications of your french door. Shades, drapes, and blinds will require a good amount of space above and to the sides of the door for the railings. But regardless of how much space you have or the dimensions of your door, plantation shutters will work. We use a state of the art three-dimensional design software to plan out your shutters, then hand build them to ensure a seamless fit for your door and your lifestyle.
