Buying Shutters for Your Sliding Doors –

SHUTTERS

Plantation Shutters for Sliding Glass Doors

Sliding glass doors – also known as “doorwalls” are extremely popular in Malibu and Southern California. Spectacular mountain views and beautiful beach vistas lend themselves to homes with entire walls – including the doors – made of glass.

Howerer, sliding glass doors have always been one of the most challenging to cover with appropriate window treatments – since they are both a “window” and a functional door. Plantation shutters offer the perfect solution to this dilemma. Plantation shutters have the functionality and durability requited for frequent use – combined with the beauty and style necessary to complement such a large and prominent opening.

Plantation shutters are an excellent choice for homes that have small children or pets. Far more sturdy and stable than vertical blinds which are typically used for door walls, plantation shutters do will not get damaged or disarrayed by active children or rambunctious dogs.

Bypass Style Shutters for Sliding Doors

Bypass sliding shutters are an excellent type of plantation shutter for any sliding door – even if it is frequently used. Bypass shutters utilize a unique elevated (overhead or above) tracking system that allows the user to slide shutter panels to the left or right with ease. Bypass sliding shutters also are available with an optional crown molding top for added design appeal.

Bi-Fold Style Shutters for Sliding Doors 

Bi-fold Plantation Shutters also work well for sliding glass doors. Bifold plantation shutters are constructed of panels that are hinged together and easily fold up against each other – in the same way that a closet door may fold. Bi-fold plantation shutter panels can be installed as “free hanging” or on a “track” that guides the panels and keeps them in place. Bi-fold panels can be installed to open all to the same side, or to open to either (both) sides of the door.

Plantation Shutters for Sliding Doors

Plantation shutters have traditionally been one of the most attractive designs for dressing French doors and doors with glass inserts.

Today’s plantation shutters can be fitted to any door – including doors with protruding handles (levers, knobs, etc.)  Because plantation shutters can be mounted directly to the doors surface (wood, metal, fiberglass, etc.) they are an excellent choice – even if the door has minimal space for mounting.

French doors with lever handles generally require plantation shutters with “cutouts”. These “cutouts” not only allow the lever or knob to function freely, but also impart a highly customized appearance.

In sum, plantations shutters aren’t just for windows anymore! With today’s advanced technologies, materials and manufacturing processes, shutters can be configured to protect and beautify any door with full functionality and the utmost in style.
