French Door Shutters In Washington DC

Windows aren’t the only spots for 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 panes for more privacy or looks, plantation shutters might be your solution. Merge eye-catching home fashion with usability with Washington DC’s best plantation shutters for your french patio doors.


Why Are Shutters Great for French Doors?

There are a ton of options for french door window treatments in Washington DC. Some Washington DC homeowners put in shades or blinds, but those can have some notable drawbacks. Nearly any type of blind will swing and rattle against the door anytime it’s opened, whereas drapes and curtains snag and can have the door shut on them.

Custom shutters on the other hand are perfect for french doors and patio doors. Instead of cluttering up your french door, they’re more like part of the door, installed directly onto the frame. It’s more than that, though. Plantation shutters for french doors offer benefits that most people don’t even realize until they see for themselves. 

French Door Shutters Offer Better Control over Lighting

Shutters give you more options for lighting your space than blinds, shades, or any other option. Let in as much or as little light as you want, at any angle you want. Going from fully open to near blackout is just a tilt away, without the hassle of yanking cords or wands.


French Door Shutters Maintain Your Privacy

Trying to keep neighbors’ eyes out of your patio door? Then shutters are for you. While blinds can be seen through at certain angles curtains let outsiders see silhouettes from inside. Shutters are the choice for maintaining your privacy.


Easy to Match Colors & Design With French Door Shutters

Is your french door the focus of your room, or are you trying to move eyes away from it? No matter which, plantation shutters can help you achieve your perfect design. Color match the shutter to your baseboard trim in order to continue the theme, or pick a bright white shutter for a flash in the room.
