Plantation Shutters for French Doors in Philadelphia

Plantation shutters aren’t only great for windows – they’re also one of the best choices for french doors. If your home has patio doors that swing out and you want to cover the glass for privacy or style, then plantation shutters are for you. Blend dazzling home fashion with functionality when you choose Philadelphia’s best shutters for your french doors.


Why choose shutters for french doors?

There are a ton of options for decorating french doors in Philadelphia. Many Philadelphia homeowners put in curtains or shades, but those can come with some notable downsides. Both styles of blinds (standard or vertical) swing and bang against the door anytime they’re open, while drapes snag and can have the door shut on them.

Interior shutters on the other hand don’t have those downsides. 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 a lot of homeowners don’t even realize until they experience them in person. 
French Door Shutters & Light Control

Shutters let you control natural light better 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 near blackout is just a tilt away, without the hassle of yanking cords or wands.

French Door Shutters Maintain Your Privacy

Want to keep outside eyes from seeing through your patio door? Then shutters are for you. You can almost always see through a certain angle with blinds, and curtains can cast shadows and silhouettes. Shutters are the best solution for privacy.

Matching Design & Colors With French Door Shutters

Are your french doors the focal point of your space, or are you trying to move eyes away from them? Either way, plantation shutters can help you accomplish your goal. Color match the shutter to your baseboard trim in order to create a seamless flow, or pick a bright white shutter for a pop in the room.
