Shutters for Chicago French Doors

Plantation shutters aren’t just for windows – they’re also a beautiful accent to 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, you might be in the market for shutters. Blend stunning home fashion with usability with Chicago’s best shutters for your french doors.


Why are shutters great for french doors?

You have a lot of options for covering french patio doors in Chicago. Some Chicago homeowners install curtains or shades, 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.

Plantation shutters on the other hand don’t have to worry about that. 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 let you control natural light better 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? 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.

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? No matter which, 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 pick a bright white shutter for a flash in the room.
