Sliding doors are a convenient, attractive and highly functional addition to any home but finding the right window furnishings for them can be challenging. Unlike a regular window, sliding doors require window coverings that allow for easy, frequent access, while still allowing effective control over light and privacy. Plantation shutters are actually one of the best options for sliding doors for a number of reasons.
How Plantation Shutters Work
Plantation shutters are a stylish and efficient window furnishing that can be installed internally or externally. Shutters are extremely effective at regulating light and airflow to create a more comfortable living environment. Plantation shutters can be made to cover windows, fitted into an internal or external wall, or even made to cover sliding doors.
Since they are fitted to the actual frame of a window or door, they are a great option for sliding doors as they will simply open along with the actual door when required instead of you needing to open the blinds every time.
With indoor shutters or outdoor shutters installed, you can enjoy convenience on top of an elegant and practical solution that ensures privacy and increased levels of natural light.
Other Benefits of Plantation Shutters
Aside from convenience and style, there are plenty of reasons why shutters may be an ideal choice for your home:
- Insulation – Sliding door shutters will form an additional layer of insulation over the large pane or panes of glass. This will keep your house cooler in the summer months and warmer in the winter months, reducing or even eliminating the need for internal heating and cooling. As a result, you may see a reduction in your energy bills.
- Natural light – Once the large louvres of the shutters are tilted open, this will allow a large amount of natural light to flood the room. Sit by the window and soak up some warming rays or just enjoy having a bright and well-lit space.
- Easy to operate – Shutters are a simple window covering to operate. To control light and privacy, simply rotate the louvres to reach your desired angle. Not only does this allow you to direct light or glare away from the room, but it also allows you to keep your home sheltered from the outside world.
