Plantation Shutters: The Best Patio Door Window Treatment in Phoenix

Greg Arnett

No matter if your patio doors are a sliding glass door or stylish French doors, a trait they share is their big glass panes that provide you an excellent view of the outside. However, that much glass can cause a few issues, such as energy loss, sun glare, and privacy. That's why you need an effective window cover to get the most out of your windows.

Discover why interior plantation shutters are the preferred patio door window treatments in Phoenix and how they can tackle these annoying challenges!

The Most Functional Sliding Door Window Treatments In Phoenix

Sliding patio doors in Phoenix.

Sliding glass doors are a popular patio door for homeowners in Phoenix. True to their name, sliding patio doors usually include two or more full-size windows, one of which slides in front of the other. While they let in plenty sunlight, they are also among the most difficult doors to find treatments for. This amount of glass means a ton of energy loss and privacy worries -- not to mention the sun glare if your backyard faces east or west.

The most preferred sliding glass patio door window treatments in Phoenix are interior shutters. These interior shutters don’t attach to the door itself but instead slide in front of it. When sun glare turns into a problem, simply slide the shutters in front of the door and tip the louvers to control light -- or close them all of the way for full privacy. Most sliding door shutters are made from faux wood, like our Polywood® shutters, so you even see energy-efficiency benefits.

Sliding door shutters offer durability and functionality, thereby enabling continual activity in and out of the patio. The most popular configuration of shutters on a sliding door is Bypass. Bypass shutters pass behind one another on a track to open the doorway.

The Top French Door Window Covers For Phoenix

Patio Doors with Plantation Shutters in Phoenix

If you lack a sliding glass door opening out onto your outdoor space, you might have another common door style: French doors. This kind of doorway has two doors that open apart from each other. The result may be a little more elegant than a sliding glass or standard door, but they have identical problems. Large panes of glass cause energy loss and sun glare.

It should be no surprise that faux wood interior shutters also are the bestFrench door window treatments in Phoenix. They have the same beauty, durability, and energy-efficiency that sliding door shutters offer, except they can affix directly onto the French door frame. Consequently, your French door plantation shutter functions much more like your typical window shutters, and you don’t need to push them over to go out the doorway.
