Shutters for Cincinnati French Doors

Windows aren’t the only places you can use plantation shutters – french doors are perfect spots for custom shutters as well. If your home has patio doors that swing out and you want to cover the glass panes for better lighting or style, plantation shutters might be your solution. Combine dazzling home fashion with usability when you choose Cincinnati’s favorite plantation shutters for your french patio doors.


Why choose shutters for french doors?

Homeowners have a lot of options for decorating french doors in Cincinnati. Some Cincinnati homeowners choose shades or blinds, but they might have some notable drawbacks. Both standard and vertical blinds swing and rattle against the door anytime it’s opened, while curtains or draperies snag and can have the door shut on them.

Custom shutters on the other hand don’t have those downsides. Instead of cluttering up your french door, they’re more like part of the door, fixed directly onto the frame. It’s more than that, though. Shutters on french doors offer benefits that a lot of people might not know about until they experience them in person. 
French Door Shutters Offer Better Control over Lighting

Shutters give your more control over lighting than any other window treatment. Let in as much light as you want, at any angle you want. Going from fully open to no light is as easy as tilting the louvers, all without the trouble of cords or wands.

French Door Shutters Maintain Your Privacy

Need to keep neighbors’ eyes out of 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 best solution for privacy.

Easy to Match Colors & Design With French Door Shutters

Is your french door the centerpiece of your space, or do you like to move eyes away from it? Regardless, custom shutters can help you accomplish your goal. Color match the shutter to your baseboard trim to create a seamless flow, or pick a bright white shutter for a flash in the room.
