Plantation Shutters: The Top Patio Door Window Treatment in Indianapolis

Bill Burke

Whether your patio doors are a sliding glass door or beautiful French doors, a trait they share is their large windows that offer you a clear view out into your yard. However, all that glass can come with a few issues, such as energy loss, sun glare, and privacy. That's why you need an effective window treatment to get the most out of your windows.

Find out why home plantation shutters are the best patio door window treatments in Indianapolis and how they can mitigate these tricky challenges!

The Most Functional Sliding Door Window Treatments In Indianapolis

Sliding patio doors in Indianapolis.

Sliding glass doors are a common patio door for many homeowners in Indianapolis. As their name indicates, sliding doors usually include two or more large windows, one of which slides over the other. While they invite in a lot of outside light, they are also one of the most challenging doors to find treatments for. This amount of glass means a substantial amount of energy loss and privacy issues -- in addition to the glare if your backyard lies to the east or west.

The most preferred sliding glass patio door window covers in Indianapolis are plantation shutters. These shutters don’t fasten to the door itself but instead move across the front of it. When sun glare is a problem, simply move the shutters in front of the door and tilt the louvers to redirect light -- or shut them entirely for optimum privacy. Most sliding door shutters are built from faux wood, such as our Polywood® shutters, so you even get energy-saving benefits.

Sliding door shutters provide durability and ease of use, thereby enabling frequent use of the patio. The most popular style of shutters on a sliding door is Bypass. Bypass shutters pass behind each other on a track to open the entryway.

The Best French Door Window Covers For Indianapolis

If you lack a sliding glass door leading out onto your patio, you may have another common door option: French doors. This type of entryway has twin doors that open apart from each other. The effect may be a little grander than a sliding glass or regular door, but they have identical issues. Large panes of glass permit energy loss and sun glare.

It is no wonder that wood substitute interior shutters also prove to be the preferredFrench door window treatments in Indianapolis. They have the same appeal, durability, and energy-efficiency that sliding door shutters provide, except they can affix directly onto the French door frame. Consequently, your French door plantation shutter acts a lot more like your common window shutters, and you don’t have to push them aside to get out the door.
