Can You Use Shutters on Patio Doors?

August 1, 2017

Many homeowners like the look of interior shutters, but they aren’t sure if shutters can be installed on patio doors. The answer is: yes! In fact, custom shutters and window coverings from Danmer can be installed on any door or window, no matter what size.

Benefits of Shutters on Patio Doors

Installing shutters on your patio doors is a great investment and brings along with it many benefits from attractive interior design to making the home more comfortable.

Décor – Complete the look of any room or entryway with beautiful shutters. They can match the color of the interior walls and door frame or select a bold, accent color for a dramatic look. Shutters look stylish and inviting in any home.

Privacy – It’s not always preferable to have someone walk up to your patio and be able to see right into your home. Shutters can be closed completely so that no one is able to see through them, providing privacy when you want it.

Blocks Light – Not only can you keep people from looking in, you can also keep light from peering in. Shutters fit tightly and block almost all light from coming in.

Noise Reduction – Shutters also block out unwanted noise. Whether you live near a busy street, school or business, installing stutters on doors and windows can make a big difference.

Choosing Custom Shutters for Patio Doors

While it can be easy to install shutters on patio doors, it may not be easy to find them premade at your local hardware store. Most doors are narrower and longer than typical premade shutters so it is best to have them custom made. Custom shutters will match the door and the look of your home perfectly.


Don’t let your doors feel left out. Install custom-made interior shutters on patio doors, front doors and windows. Danmer Custom Shutters can help you design practical, affordable, and stylish shutters for your home.

How to Choose the Best Custom Window Shutters for Your Home

How to Choose the Best Custom Window Shutters
So you’re committed to improve your home and you’ve decided to purchase new window shutters. Where do you begin? Danmer Custom Shutters strongly suggests you use these 8 important questions to help guide you through your shutter shopping experience.

Are the shutters custom made for me?
Make sure your shutters are hand-crafted to your exact speficications, including color, finish and size to ensure your shutters fit your window flawlessly and match your décor. Danmer’s genuine custom shutters are made from the ground up to fit your size and shape of window, and made to match your décor…no exceptions!

How to Choose Between Wood and Poly or Faux-Wood Shutters?
There will always be homeowners who insist on wood shutters. But one alternative you should ask for is Thermalite™ Shutters. Unlike wood shutters, Thermalite will NEVER peel, crack, warp, burn, or discolor. They don’t lose tension so they work perfectly for many years. And the water-based finish insures safety with no harmful toxic effects.

How Fast Can I Get My Shutters?
Danmer is the shutter manufacturer, right here in California. This gives us the ability to install your custom shutters faster than anyone else in the industry. Many companies only assemble parts manufactured overseas, which can take weeks to arrive. Danmer shutters can be installed in as little as 3 days from your measuring appointment+.

Are You Fully Licensed and Insured?
The Contractors State License Board regulates California contractors, while investigating over 20,000 complaints each year. Ask any shutter company about their installers: Will the person who installs your shutters be licensed, bonded, insured, factory trained and certified? Do they have a minimum 10 year track record installing shutters? Danmer’s license is #574304 and we’ve NEVER had a complaint filed gainst our installers with the CSLB.

What’s The Right Shutters For My Home Environment?
The Thermalite™ Shutter Insulating System was created to reduce energy consumption in your home, insulating your windows up to 3x better than wood shutters, keeping your house warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Thermalite is made of a non-toxic material that’s flame retardant, water resistant,and produces very low VOCs.

Why Is Made in USA Important?
Danmer Custom Window Shutters are manufactured and assembled right here in the USA. We believe that investing in your home is an investment in rebuilding America. Other companies will also claim that their products are made in the USA, but in reality many are only assembled in the USA from foreign manufactured parts. Danmer shutters are produced here in the USA using safe and reliable materials.

Why Is 24/7 Customer Service Important?
Make sure to ask if the shutter company provides customer service 7 days a week, 24 hours a day to address any questions that may arise. Also ask your shutter company if they provide their customers with online order status, so you can see your from start to finish.

Why Is The Warranty Important?
Here’s what to look for in the fine print: insist on a custom window shutter warranty that’s actually transferable to the NEXT homeowner. A transferable warranty is desirable because it will likely increase the resale value of your home. Trust a company that will give you a copy of the warranty; that’s the Danmer Difference. Custom Window Shutters have gone through a remarkable transformation in the last few decades, with product and service options that you ought to know about before you make a shutter decision. You shouldn’t have to jump through hoops to get your shutter company to tell you about the full range of options available. You deserve straight answers in a timely manner so that you can make the best shutter choice for you and your family.

Style and Design Trends

What’s a recent design trend you’re loving or following. New design trends that I like are the use of Gray colors.

Blinds, Shades or Shutters… what is your preference?  I like and I love using textures on a window but my favorite to sell is always shutters they are a classic and will never go out of style.  Plus I love the energy efficiency of our shutters.

Have fur babies at home? Melissa has some advice for you and your pets. When it comes to man’s best friend and your blinds or shades, the problem isn’t playfulness as much as curiosity. While cats like to lounge in windows and play with cords, dogs want to know what is going on in the world outside. Because of this, if you have pets at home, you need to consider your options. Window treatments are just an obstruction keeping your furry friends from a clear view of that squirrel, or the mailman, or whatever may be going on outside. Melissa can suggest the right options for you, weather it’s Cordless Blinds or top down/bottom up Honeycomb Shades or Custom Interior Shutters, your pets will be safe and you’ll have a piece of mind knowing that their aren’t dangers at home.

Summer Design Trends in Interior Design

June 2, 2017
Window Treatments, Interior Design, Green, Window Treatments, Summer Design Trends

The “era of relaxation” isn’t going away anytime soon. American families have grown fond of living spaces that allow them to unplug and unwind from the hectic pace of life these days. But as we near the midpoint of 2017, cheerful and up-beat colors are still in vogue and a new flock of “trends” in interior design look a lot like recent tried and true standards for summer. Here are some of the most popular summer design trends so far:

  • Color pops: Small but Bold. Summer bring bold flavors, sights and sounds…don’t shy away from bringing a little bit of color into your home. If furniture is too much for you, opt for bright accessories such as throws, pillows or accent rugs.
  • Outdoor comes in. You’re probably spending more time outdoors than indoors during the summer, but you can still bring the season’s best elements inside with you. There’s no stopping the current nature trend by decorating homes with lots of indoor plants and trees and the warm earth tones to complement them.
  • Window improvements. The right Window Coverings remain the best way to complement to any decor while you regulate the amount of light that gets in, and how much of your room’s decor they illuminate. With nearly limitless possibilities for colors, styles, and shapes, swapping out window treatments can transform an entire room or your entire house without breaking the bank.
  • Texture. Weaving texture into your home’s interior makes it more inviting and relaxing. Texture’s don’t need to be permanent, try draping a wool throw over a chair or mix up your fabrics used for decorative pillows to test this trend.

Before taking on any major home improvement projects, it’s always good to research upcoming trends and home improvement solutions — and never hesitate to consult industry professionals with any questions you may have.

If your summer decor plan includes a window treatment upgrade, contact Danmer to find the solution that best fits your style and budget.

Turns out, there are some really cool DIY (Do-It-Yourself) ideas to turn old shutter panels into something useful and even highly decorative in and around your house.

These kind of DIY projects are easy and affordable. And if you’re replacing older NON-DANMER shutters with some new ones, you might as well put the old ones to use if you can. Or you can simply look for older vintage shutters being tossed out when your neighbors are replacing window coverings.

Tips To Easily Clean Your Shutters, Blinds and Shades

November 14, 2016
monday_november-14

Since we’re all getting ready for the holidays, it’s tough to find the time to finish home projects we may have started throughout the year.

Here’s a quick way to brighten up your home for the holidays: clean those dusty blinds, shades or shutters. Your guests will notice that something is fresh and new in your home, and all you’ve done is a simple refresh.  That way next year you won’t have to devote several Saturdays to cleaning the house.

CLEAN YOUR SHUTTERS WITH EASE: Window shutters can be either decorative or functional, and often times are both. Whether they are Danmer Thermalite, Heritage Wood, Ultraluxe or Plantation Shutters, they’ve added beauty and character to any home. However, over time, your shutters will collect dust, and their beauty can easily be overlooked. Routine cleaning is not only recommended, it is absolutely necessary. The good news is that shutters, are relatively easy to maintain, and cleaning is a breeze. Use a soft cotton cloth and mild soap and water to wipe the louvers, and then dry immediately with a clean dry cloth. Do not use any harsh chemicals or ammonia based cleaners. Throughout the year, you can use a feather duster to keep them dust free in all seasons.

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR SHADES: It’s important not to begin by spot cleaning your shades. Start by dusting the shades, instead of starting with the stains. Whether your shades are Honeycomb shades, Roman shades, Sheers and Shading, or Solar or Roller Shades begin your cleaning process by using your vacuum’s suction hose with the soft brush attachment. Work your way from side to side all the way down the shade, and see the dust disappear.

 HOW TO CLEAN YOUR BLINDS: Regular cleaning will keep your Wooden Blinds, Skyline Panels, Solid & Stained Wood Blinds, Faux Wood Blinds and Vertical Blinds looking and working like new.

Your grandmother probably used this trick for cleaning blinds:

  • Fill a small bowl with white vinegar and find a pair of clean cotton gloves or socks
  • Put your hand inside one of the gloves or socks and dip the tip of the sock, or your fingers into the bowl
  • Run your hand or fingers along each slat to remove the dust and grime. You may need to rinse the sock or glove a few times
  • Switch back and forth between the two socks or gloves, soaking one sock or glove while you use the other

Important: Although this method is safe for most materials, do not oversaturate the blinds, especially if they are wooden. Water warps wood, so squeeze as much out as possible and dry immediately. Avoid letting the vinegar come into contact with your eyes or skin.
