Plantation Shutters: The Ultimate Patio Door Window Treatment in Dallas

September 17, 2020

No matter if your patio doors are a sliding glass door or trendy French doors, one thing they have in common is their big window panes that give you a fantastic view outside. However, all that glass can cause issues, such as energy loss, privacy, and sun glare. That's why you need the right window treatment to fully benefit from your windows.

Read about why interior plantation shutters are the best patio door window treatments in Dallas and how they can fix these tricky challenges!

The Top Sliding Door Window Treatments For Dallas

Sliding patio doors in Dallas.

Sliding glass doors are a popular patio door among lots of homeowners in Dallas. True to their name, sliding doors usually include at least two large windows, one of which slides over the other. While they allow in lots outside light, they are also among the most frustrating doors to cover. So much glass means a ton of heat loss and privacy worries -- and then there’s the sun glare if your backyard faces east or west.

The most effective sliding glass patio door window treatments in Dallas are interior shutters. These interior shutters don’t mount to the door itself but rather glide across the front of it. When sun glare turns into a problem, just slide the shutters in front of the door and tilt the louvers to control light -- or shut them entirely for the most privacy. Usually, sliding door shutters are manufactured from faux wood, such as our Polywood® shutters, so you also get energy-efficiency benefits.

Sliding door shutters provide durability and ease of use, thereby allowing frequent use of the patio. The most familiar style of shutters on a sliding door is Bypass. Bypass shutters move behind one another on a track to open the entryway.

The Best French Door Window Treatments For Dallas

If you don’t have a sliding glass door opening out onto your outdoor space, you may have another popular door style: French doors. This type of doorway has two doors that open apart from one another. The result may be a tad bit more elegant than a sliding glass or regular door, but they have similar issues. Large pieces of glass allow for energy loss and sun glare.

It should be no surprise that faux wood plantation shutters also are the preferred French door window treatments in Dallas. They have the same flair, longevity, and environmental friendliness that sliding door shutters have, except they can attach directly onto the French door frame. Now, your French door plantation shutter functions a lot more like your standard window shutters, and you aren’t forced to move them over to get out the doorway.
