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, then plantation shutters are for you. Merge eye-catching home fashion with functionality with Southern California’s favorite plantation shutters for your french patio doors.
Why Are Shutters Great for French Doors?
You have a lot of options for decorating french doors in Southern California. Many Southern California homeowners go with curtains or shades, but a lot of those have some serious downsides. Both standard and vertical blinds swing and rattle against the door anytime it’s opened, whereas 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 patio door, they’re more like part of the door, installed directly onto the frame. It’s more than that, though. French door shutters offer benefits that many homeowners don’t even realize until they experience them in person.
French Door Shutters Let You Take Control of Natural Light
Shutters give your more control over lighting than any other window treatment. Let in any amount of light 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 Offer More Privacy
Want to keep prying eyes out of your patio door? Shutters are your solution. While blinds can be seen through at certain angles curtains can cast shadows and silhouettes. Shutters are the choice for maintaining your privacy.
Easy to Match Colors & Design With French Door Shutters
Is your patio door the centerpiece of your space, or do you like to move eyes away from it? Either way, custom plantation shutters can help you achieve your perfect design. Match the color of your shutters to your baseboard trim in order to create a seamless flow, or choose a bright white shutter for a pop in the room.
Pick from Polywood® faux wood shutters, Ovation® natural wood shutters, and other styles from Sunburst Shutters Southern California.
French Door Shutters With Custom Door Handle Cut-Outs
With blinds or similar products, you’ll need to maneuver around them to access the door handle. But not with custom plantation shutters!
To make sure your shutters are both beautiful and practical, we can custom make either square door handle cut-outs or rounded door handle cut-outs to give you access to the door handle.
Custom-Made to Your Patio Door
Our shutters are custom built to your french door specifically. Shades, drapes, and blinds will usually need a lot of space above the door and to the side to hang railings. But regardless of how much space you have or the dimensions of your door, plantation shutters can work. Sunburst uses a unique three-dimensional design software to design your shutters, then hand build them to guarantee a seamless fit for your door and your lifestyle.
