Enhance the look of your room
Shutters for patio doors are more than just a way to manage light and privacy; they completely transform your room. Whether you want to add the finishing touch to a new extension or accentuate your patio doors, shutters will smarten up and add style to your space. They also look great on surrounding windows for a coordinated look.
Designing shutters for french doors
Our shutters are all custom made to your measurements to ensure a perfect fit. Full height shutters are the best option for french doors and come with a mid-rail so you can operate the top and bottom sets of slats independently. Unlike window shutters, they are usually designed with a 3-sided frame, meaning no bottom frame piece to step over. Speak to our team for advice on which size panel will suit, and where the frame should sit to clear any door handles (these can also be hidden with a carefully positioned mid-rail).
No matter what your space looks like, we can help design the right shutter for your needs. Just send us a photo of your doors to get started!
Using shutters for patio doors
Shutters for patio doors are fuss-free and easy to use. The panels fold back neatly to the side, giving you an undisturbed view of the garden. When closed, they are a great way of keeping pets or young children in (you could even install your own latch at the top).
Upkeep is also nice and straightforward; simply wipe the shutters down with a damp cloth to clean.
Privacy and light control
Unlike your doors, your shutters don't have to be either open or closed. Moving the slats will give you the ability to control light and air flow into the room and can be adjusted throughout the day.
Shutters for french doors also provide privacy, meaning you can open your doors to catch that cool summer breeze in peace.
Insulation and noise reduction
Shutters have the bonus of providing insulation, reducing energy bills and keeping the elements outside. They also help to reduce noise from outside – great if the kids are playing in the garden!
