Plantation shutters aren’t only great for windows – they’re also one of the best choices for french doors. If your home has doors that open out to your patio and you want to cover the glass panes for privacy or looks, then plantation shutters are for you. Merge dazzling home fashion with usability with Fort Lauderdale’s best shutters for your french patio doors.
Why Are Shutters Great for French Doors?
There are a lot of choices for covering french patio doors in Fort Lauderdale. Some Fort Lauderdale homeowners choose curtains or shades, but a lot of those have some serious downsides. Both styles of blinds (standard or vertical) swing and rattle against the door anytime they’re open, while drapes and curtains snag and can get caught in the door.
Interior shutters on the other hand don’t have those downsides. Instead of cluttering up your french door, they’re more like part of the door, fixed directly onto the frame. It’s more than that, though. Shutters on french doors offer benefits that a lot of homeowners might not know about until they see them.
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 as much light as you want, at any angle you want. Going from fully open to near blackout is as easy as tilting the louvers, without the hassle of yanking cords or wands.
French Door Shutters & Better Home Privacy
Want to keep outside eyes from seeing through your patio door? Then shutters are for you. 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 french door the focal point of your space, or do you like to draw attention away from it? Either way, custom plantation shutters can help you achieve your perfect design. Color match the shutter to your baseboard trim in order to accentuate your room’s style, or choose a bright white shutter for a break in the room.
Choose from Polywood® faux wood shutters, Ovation® natural wood shutters, and more with Sunburst Shutters Fort Lauderdale.
French Door Shutters With Cut-Outs to Fit Your Door Handle
With blinds or similar products, you usually have to maneuver around them to access the door handle. But that’s not a concern with shutters!
To ensure usability and stylish design, we can custom build either square door handle cut-outs or rounded door handle cut-outs to give you access to the door handle.
Custom-Made to Any Patio Door
Sunburst’s plantation shutters are custom built to your french door specifically. Shades, drapes, and blinds will usually need a good amount of space above and to the sides of the door for the railings. But regardless of how much space you have or the dimensions of your door, plantation shutters can be installed. We use a proprietary 3D building software to plan out your shutters, then hand build them to guarantee a seamless fit for your door and your lifestyle.
