Plantation Shutters for French Doors in Boston

Windows aren’t the only places you can use plantation shutters – french doors make great use of custom shutters as well. If you have doors that open out to your patio and you want to cover the glass for privacy or looks, then plantation shutters are for you. Combine stunning home fashion with functionality with Boston’s best plantation shutters for your french patio doors.


Why are shutters great for french doors?

Homeowners have a lot of options for decorating french doors in Boston. Some Boston homeowners install curtains or shades, but a lot of those come with some notable downsides. Both standard and vertical blinds swing and rattle against the door anytime they’re open, whereas curtains snag and can get caught in the door.

Plantation shutters on the other hand are perfect for french doors and patio doors. Instead of cluttering up your french door, shutters are more like part of the door itself, attached to the frame. It’s more than that, though. Shutters on french doors offer benefits that many people don’t even realize until they experience them in person. 
French Door Shutters Offer Better Control over Lighting

Shutters give your more control over lighting than blinds, shades, or 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 as easy as tilting the louvers, without wasting time messing with cords or wands.

French Door Shutters Offer More Privacy

Trying to keep prying eyes out of your patio door? Shutters are your solution. While blinds can be seen through at certain angles curtains can cast shadows and silhouettes. Shutters are the ultimate privacy protector.

Matching Design & Colors With French Door Shutters

Is your french door the focal point of your space, or are you trying to move eyes away from it? No matter which, plantation shutters can help you achieve your perfect design. Match the color of your shutters to your baseboard trim in order to create a seamless flow, or go with a bright white shutter for a flash in the room.
