Top 4 reasons to choose plantation shutters for sliding doors

Sliding doors are convenient and all but man, can they be hard to find window coverings for! Unlike a regular window, sliding doors require a covering that can allow easy, frequent access, all while regulating light and privacy. That’s why we recommend installing plantation shutters over your sliding doors. Keep reading to find out why.

What are plantation shutters?

Plantation shutters are a stylish and efficient window treatment for the home that can be installed internally or externally. Traditionally used in Mediterranean countries, indoor shutters effectively regulate 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. With indoor shutters or outdoor shutters installed, they provide an elegant and practical solution that will ensure privacy and increased levels of natural light.

Benefits of plantation shutters

There are plenty of reasons why shutters could be the choice for you and 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.

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.

Protect privacy: As mentioned above, indoor shutters and outdoor shutterscan help to protect you and your family’s privacy. With the shutters positioned at the right angle, you can still enjoy the view of the world around you without worrying about prying eyes.

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 (without a high energy bill!).

Custom made shutters

At ABC Blinds, our plantation shutters are available in three different styles: hinged, sliding and bifold. We recommend bi-fold shutters for sliding doors, as they can be easily folded away to access the door or even just enjoy the view. Sliding shutters are also a great choice for this area of the home, as the operation is identical to that of a sliding door (as the name suggests). Simply slide the plantation shutters to one side of the door or window to gain fast and easy access.

Our indoor plantation shutters are available in light and durable aluminium, or in stunning basswood timber. For sliding doors that receive a lot of sunlight, we recommend aluminium shutters, due to the materials’ sturdy and hardwearing nature.

Timber shutters, also known as wooden shutters, are a natural and stylish alternative to aluminium. We make our timber plantation shutters from basswood, which is durable, yet lightweight, making it incredibly easy to install and maintain.

When it comes to colour, we offer our shutters in shades of black, white, grey and cream. We recommend white shutters for homes that receive a lot of sunlight, as they’ll work to reflect heat away from the windows and reduce the indoor temperature.
