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, then plantation shutters are for you. Combine eye-catching home fashion with usability with Minneapolis’s favorite plantation shutters for your french doors.
Why Are Shutters Great for French Doors?
Homeowners have a lot of options for french door window treatments in Minneapolis. A lot of Minneapolis homeowners choose shades or blinds, but those can have some serious downsides. Nearly any type of blind will swing and bang against the door anytime it’s opened, while curtains or draperies snag and can get caught in the door.
Custom shutters on the other hand are perfect for french doors and patio doors. Rather than cluttering up your french door, they’re more like part of the door, installed directly onto the frame. It’s more than that, though. Shutters on french doors offer benefits that many people don’t even know about until they see them.
French Door Shutters Offer Better Control over Lighting
Shutters let you control natural light better than blinds, shades, or any other window treatment. Let in any amount of light you want, at any angle you want. Going from fully open to no light is just a tilt away, without the hassle of yanking cords or wands.
French Door Shutters Offer More Privacy
Trying to keep neighbors’ eyes out of your patio door? Shutters have what you’re looking for. While blinds can be seen through at certain angles curtains can cast shadows and silhouettes. Shutters are the best solution for privacy.
Matching Design & Colors With French Door Shutters
Are your french doors the focus of your space, or are you trying to draw attention away from them? Regardless, plantation shutters can help you accomplish your goal. Match the color of your shutters to your baseboard trim to continue the theme, or choose a bright white shutter for a pop in the room.
Choose from Polywood® faux wood shutters, Ovation® natural wood shutters, and more with Sunburst Shutters Minneapolis.
French Door Shutters With Cut-Outs to Fit Your Door Handle
With blinds or drapes, you usually have to maneuver around them to access the door handle. But not with custom plantation shutters!
To ensure usability and stylish design, we can offer either square door handle cut-outs or rounded door handle cut-outs to let your door handle move freely.
Custom-Made to Any Patio Door
Our shutters are custom built to your french door specifically. Blinds and shades 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 can be installed. We use a proprietary three-dimensional building software to plan out your shutters, then hand build them to guarantee a perfect fit for your door and your lifestyle.
