Shutters for Detroit French Doors

Windows aren’t the only places you can use plantation shutters – french doors are perfect spots for custom shutters as well. If you have patio doors that swing out and you want to cover the glass panes for better lighting or looks, you might be in the market for shutters. Combine stunning home fashion with usability with Detroit’s best shutters for your french doors.


Why choose shutters for french doors?

You have a ton of options for covering french patio doors in Detroit. Some Detroit homeowners put in blinds, shades, or curtains, but they might have some serious downsides. Both styles of blinds (standard or vertical) swing and bang against the door anytime they’re open, whereas curtains snag and can have the door shut on them.

Custom shutters on the other hand don’t have those downsides. Rather than cluttering up your french door, shutters are more like part of the door itself, attached to the frame. It’s more than that, though. French door shutters offer benefits that many homeowners don’t even realize until they see for themselves. 
French Door Shutters Offer Better Control over Lighting

Shutters give you more options for lighting your space than blinds, shades, or any other window treatment. Get as much or as little sunlight coming into your home, at any angle you want. Going from fully open to near blackout is just a tilt away, without wasting time messing with 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 best solution for privacy.

Easy to Match Colors & Design With French Door Shutters

Are your patio doors the focal point of your space, or do you like to draw attention away from them? Either way, 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 choose a bright white shutter for a flash in the middle of your space.

French Door Shutters With Cut-Outs to Fit Your Door Handle

With drapes or curtains, you usually have to move them around to access the door handle. But not with custom plantation shutters!

Custom-Built for Your French Doors

Sunburst’s plantation shutters are custom built to your french door specifically. Shades, drapes, and blinds will require a lot of space above and to the sides of the door for the railings. But regardless of how much space you have or the dimensions of your door, plantation shutters will work. We use a proprietary 3D design software to design your shutters, then hand build them to guarantee a seamless fit for your home and your lifestyle.
