Yes! Shutters are an excellent choice for patio doors.
Patio doors, bi-folding doors or sliding doors are a beautiful addition to any home. They allow you to bring the outdoors in, make the most of the view and they flood your home with natural light. Patio doors are particularly popular in kitchens and dining rooms.
Choosing a window dressing for patio doors can be tricky. All patio doors are made to measure, meaning a one-size-fits-all window dressing won’t work. Whichever window dressing you opt for, whether it’s curtains, shutters or blinds, you will have to get them made to measure.
Many people opt for tailormade curtains as they appear to be the easier window dressing. However, curtains don’t offer the same flexibility as other window dressings. Curtains are difficult to maintain as they get dirty very easily. Plus, the wear and tear of a busy household can quickly take its toll on curtains. Although they may seem like a cost-effective option, tailormade curtains can be very expensive, especially if they need replacing regularly.
Similarly, blinds can be challenging to maintain. The fabrics hold onto dirt and odours and removing blinds to clean them is hard work. Like curtains, everyday wear and tear can also affect blinds. On the other hand, most types of blinds offer more flexibility than curtains.
Shutters are by far the most versatile and beneficial window dressing for patio doors. And here’s why…
Tracked shutters are full height shutters that are attached to a track and can slide or fold away. The rolling top track system means the weight of the high-quality shutters is on the top. This ensures longevity as the panel weight is evenly distributed. At Shuttertec, we also have the option for the louvres to self-close when you fold them back, minimising any potential damage.
Tracked shutters make perfect shutters for patio doors including French doors, bi-folding doors and sliding doors. Plus, tracked shutters can be used as a stylish room divider and can even be used as a wardrobe door!
