Window Shutters for Sliding Glass Doors

Sliding glass doors are beautiful and functional. They allow in lots of light and air and they also create a nice, large opening out to a patio or backyard. However, the problem with sliding glass doors is figuring out how to cover them. Don’t worry. There are plenty of great window treatments for sliding doors, especially at Danmer Custom Shutters.

When it comes time to dress your sliding glass doors, there are a couple things to keep in mind. Here are some do’s and don’t’s for installing window shutters on sliding glass doors.

Do Consider the Look of the Room

One of the first things to think about when you want to cover sliding glass doors is how you want the shutters to look. This will depend in large part on the current décor of the room. Danmer will customize your shutters to match the look of any room whether you choose wood or synthetic material shutters painted or stained in any color. Consider a classic wood finish, a paint color that will blend in with the walls, or choose an accent color to bring out the beauty of your custom shutters. Custom shutters will last a very long time, so whatever you select make sure it complements the room and suits your unique sense of style.

Don’t Try to Handle All of the Measuring and Design

Lots of things need to be considered when measuring for shutters. First you may have to choose between bi-fold, bi-pass and other designs. Each comes with their own measuring considerations. For example you may have to account for the door handle. A protruding door handle reduces can interfere with opening and closing shutter louvers. While it is possible to get rough measurements on your own, the best idea is to leave it to the experts. That way you’ll know for sure that the shutters will be built and fit perfectly.

Do Consider Heating and Cooling Bills

Not all shutters are considered equal. Consider shutters that will insulate better, helping to save money on heating and cooling costs. For example, Danmer’s Thermalite™ synthetic shutters insulate more than 3 times greater than wood and you may even qualify for a federal tax credit.

Of course, when you choose Danmer Custom Shutters you won’t have to worry about making these decisions on your own. Our highly-trained shutter design experts will walk you through the process and make sure that you receive the perfect window treatments for any window in your home.
