Why choose patio door shutters

Sliding glass doors that overlook your patio and garden are a lovely feature to have in a home. Unfortunately, too many people think that their options for covering their sliding glass doors are limited to heavy curtains.

But, there’s a better solution for covering patio doors, plantation shutters. They look great with patio doors of all types, especially sliding doors! Patio door shutters are made to measure too, so that you can get the design you want.

Shutters for French doors are a lot easier to adjust and to use in your day-to-day life. Curtains, blinds, and other window coverings offer less control over the light that enters your home, lack privacy, or are frustrating to try to adjust just right - especially once you’ve had them for a few years and their mechanisms become filled with dust and debris. Shutters, on the other hand, are easy to maintain and even easier to adjust to your lighting and privacy needs.

Patio doors are usually positioned at the back of the house, so during the day it's great to have a full view of your lovely garden, but at night when you’re inside with the lights on, anybody outside could easily see in. To keep your home private, we recommend installing shutters on your rear patio doors, because you can easily open them during the day for light and to admire your garden and close them in the evening for full privacy.
