French Door Shutters In Chicago

Windows aren’t the only spots for plantation shutters – french doors make great use of custom shutters as well. If your home has doors that open out to your patio and you want to cover the glass panes for better lighting or looks, then plantation shutters are for you. Merge eye-catching home fashion with usability with Chicago’s best shutters for your french doors.


Why Are Shutters Great for French Doors?

There are a lot of options for french door window treatments in Chicago. Some Chicago homeowners install shades or blinds, but they might have some notable downsides. Both styles of blinds (standard or vertical) swing and bang against the door anytime they’re open, while curtains or draperies snag and can have the door shut on them.

Interior shutters on the other hand don’t have those downsides. Instead of cluttering up your french door, shutters are more like part of the door itself, installed directly onto the frame. It’s more than that, though. French door shutters offer benefits that most people don’t even realize until they see for themselves. 

French Door Shutters & Light Control

Shutters give you more options for lighting your space than any other window treatment. 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

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 let outsiders see silhouettes from inside. Shutters are the ultimate privacy protector.


Easy to Match Colors & Design With French Door Shutters

Are your french doors the focus of your space, or are you trying to move eyes away from them? Regardless, french door shutters can help you achieve your perfect design. Match the color of your shutters to your baseboard trim to continue the theme, or go with a bright white shutter for a flash in the room.
