Plantation Shutters: The Ultimate Patio Door Window Treatment in Atlanta

Dan Taylor

Whether your patio doors are a sliding glass door or trendy French doors, something they have in common is their substantial window panes that provide you a clear view out into your yard. However, all that glass can come with some issues, such as heat loss, privacy, and sun glare. That's why you need an effective window treatment to fully benefit from your windows.

Read about why interior plantation shutters are the ideal patio door window treatments in Atlanta and how they can mitigate these annoying problems!

The Best Sliding Door Window Treatments For Atlanta

Sliding patio doors in Atlanta.

Sliding glass doors are a common patio door among many homeowners in Atlanta. As their name indicates, the doors usually have two or more large windows, one of which slides in front of the other. While they invite in a lot of sunlight, they are also among the most challenging doors to cover. This amount of glass means a ton of energy loss and privacy issues -- and then there’s the sun glare if your backyard lies to the east or west.

The best sliding glass patio door window covers in Atlanta are plantation shutters. These shutters don’t mount to the door itself but rather slide in front of it. When sun glare is a problem, simply slide the shutters in front of the door and adjust the louvers to redirect light -- or shut them all of the way for total privacy. Usually, sliding door shutters are built from faux wood, like our Polywood® shutters, so you even get energy-saving benefits.

Sliding door shutters provide resilience and functionality, thereby allowing frequent activity in and out of the patio. The most popular style of shutters on a sliding door is Bypass. Bypass shutters slide behind the other on a track to open the doorway.

The Best French Door Window Covers For Atlanta

If you lack a sliding glass door exiting out to your patio, you might have another popular door option: French doors. This style of doorway features twin doors that open apart from each other. The result can be a bit more elegant than a sliding glass or typical door, but they have the same problems. Substantial pieces of glass cause energy loss and sun glare.

It is no wonder that wood substitute interior shutters also prove to be the bestFrench door window treatments in Atlanta. They have the same style, strength, and energy-efficiency that sliding door shutters feature, except they can attach right onto the French door frame. Now, your French door plantation shutter functions much more like your typical window shutters, and you aren’t forced to move them aside to walk out the door.
