Plantation Shutters: The Ultimate Patio Door Window Treatment in Southern California

September 17, 2020

No matter if your patio doors are a sliding glass door or stylish French doors, one thing they have in common is their big windows that give you a clear view out into your yard. However, all that glass may cause issues, such as energy loss, sun glare, and privacy. That's why you need the right window treatment to fully benefit from your windows.

Read about why plantation shutters are the preferred patio door window treatments in Southern California and how they can resolve these tricky problems!

The Best Sliding Door Window Treatments For Southern California

Sliding patio doors in Southern California.

Sliding glass doors are a popular patio door among homeowners in Southern California. True to their name, the doors usually include two or more large windows, one of which slides past the other. While they let in lots outside light, they are also among the most challenging doors to cover. So much glass means a ton of heat loss and privacy worries -- not to mention the glare if your backyard faces east or west.

The best sliding glass patio door window treatments in Southern California are interior shutters. These shutters don’t fasten to the door itself but instead glide across the front of it. When sun glare is an annoyance, push the shutters in front of the door and adjust the louvers to control light -- or shut them completely for the most privacy. The majority of sliding door shutters are manufactured from a wood substitute, such as our Polywood® shutters, so you even see energy-saving benefits.

Sliding door shutters provide longevity and easy operation, thereby permitting frequent use of the patio. The most popular configuration of shutters on a sliding door is Bypass. Bypass shutters pass behind one another on a track to open the doorway.

The Most Functional French Door Window Treatments For Southern California

If you lack a sliding glass door leading out to your patio, you may have another common door option: French doors. This type of entryway includes two doors that open apart from each other. The result might be a little more elegant than a sliding glass or typical door, but they share the same issues. Substantial pieces of glass allow for heat loss and sun glare.

It should come as no surprise that faux wood interior shutters also prove to be the best French door window treatments in Southern California. They have the same appeal, longevity, and energy-efficiency that sliding door shutters feature, except they can attach right onto the French door frame. Consequently, your French door plantation shutter works a lot more like your standard window shutters, and you don’t need to push them to the side to get through the door.
