Can Shutters Be Installed on French Doors?

French doors are potentially the most exquisite glass doors a home in Chicago can have. Yet they’re sometimes difficult to cover with traditional window treatments. This makes it even easier to love our French door shutters in Chicago.

Custom plantation shutters in Chicago give you energy efficiency and temperature control. They come in an array of stains and paints to go with your furnishings. Whether you are looking for a white Polywood® shutter or a dark Ovation® wood one, we can custom-fit the louvers to your French doors.

The first thing we do is measure the dimensions of each door. We record the position of the door handles so when we go back to our warehouse, we can order your custom shutters in Chicago to let the handles move smoothly. Using advanced computer software and over three decades of experience, we build your French door shutters and apply finishes and colors.

Then, our professional installers mount the shutters on your French doors – and make sure that the shutters operate, allowing for an open view and easier cleaning. This allows you control over light and privacy – without sacrificing charm.

Curved or Square-Handle Cutout?

Depending on the style of shutters you prefer and the style of door handles you have, you can pick from a a curved or square-cut style for your door handle.

The curved cut-out is known to encase a larger area of glass than the square cut . This happens because the curve needs more area to create the arc and usually starts higher and ends lower than the tight corners of a polished rectangular cutout. The curved cutout gives embellished style to the finished French door shutters.
