Shutters for Minneapolis French Doors

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 better lighting or style, you might be in the market for shutters. 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 covering french patio doors 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 a lot of people don’t even know about until they experience them in person. 
French Door Shutters Offer Better Control over Lighting

Shutters give you more options for lighting your space 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 & Better Home Privacy

Trying to keep neighbors’ eyes out of your patio door? Shutters have what you’re looking for. Blinds almost always can be seen through at some angle, and curtains can cast shadows and silhouettes. Shutters are the choice for maintaining your privacy.

Matching Design & Colors With French Door Shutters

Are your french doors the centerpiece of your space, or are you trying to draw attention away from them? No matter which, 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.

French Door Shutters With Cut-Outs to Fit Your Door Handle
