Plantation Shutters for French Doors in Denver

Windows aren’t the only places you can use plantation shutters – french doors make great use of custom shutters as well. If you have one or two doors that open out to your patio and you want to cover the glass for more privacy or looks, you might be in the market for shutters. Merge eye-catching home fashion with usability when you choose Denver’s favorite shutters for your french patio doors.


Why are shutters great for french doors?

Homeowners have a ton of choices for covering french patio doors in Denver. A lot of Denver homeowners go with curtains or shades, but a lot of those have some notable downsides. Nearly any type of blind will swing and bang against the door anytime it’s opened, whereas curtains or draperies snag and can get caught in the door.

Interior shutters on the other hand don’t have to worry about that. Rather than cluttering up your patio door, shutters are more like part of the door itself, installed directly onto the frame. It’s more than that, though. Plantation shutters for french doors offer benefits that a lot of people might not realize until they see for themselves. 
French Door Shutters & Light Control

Shutters give your more control over lighting than blinds, shades, or any other option. Let in as much light as you want, at any angle you want. Going from full light to no light is as easy as tilting the louvers, all without the trouble of cords or wands.

French Door Shutters & Better Home Privacy

Need to keep outside eyes from seeing through your patio door? Shutters have what you’re looking for. Blinds almost always can be seen through at some angle, and curtains let outsiders see silhouettes from inside. Shutters are the ultimate privacy protector.

Matching Design & Colors With French Door Shutters

Are your french doors the focal point of your space, or do you like to move eyes away from them? Either way, plantation shutters can help you achieve your perfect design. Match the color of your shutters to your baseboard trim to continue the theme, or pick a bright white shutter for a pop in the middle of your space.
