Do you have patio doors? They can pose a real problem to dress. Options can feel limited, leaving many homeowners opting for patio doors curtains. Here’s why plantation shutters are a better option for patio doors than curtains:
1. They offer privacy and light control
Plantation shutters offer privacy and light control in a way that patio door curtains do not. Some homeowners are reluctant to cover their patio doors because they like the light entering their homes during the day, but for reasons like privacy, and cosiness during evenings, having no window dressing is sometimes not an option.
Shutters are the only window dressing option that accentuates the light, rather than block it. With their adjustable slats, they can be positioned fully or partially open, giving you better privacy and light control. Curtains, on the other hand, can only be opened or closed.
2. Plantation shutters are bespoke
Plantation shutters are custom-made, so you don’t need to worry about large or irregular measurements of your patio doors. All shutters from Totally Shutters are made to measure, and securely fit the opening of your doors and/or side windows.
3. Shutters can disguise unsightly door handles
Plantation shutters are a great way to hide your door frames or handles, bringing character and style to your home. Plantation shutters can come with a mid rail to be positioned any height you require. Mid rails are useful for adding separation to shutters allowing you to split the function of slats, but can also be positioned to hide your door handles.
4. They prevent pets and children going outside
Installing plantation shutters to patio doors is a great idea for pet owners or parents with young children. In hotter months, when you require more ventilation, you can leave the doors open and have the plantation shutters as a barrier to exit.
