Plantation Shutters: The Best Patio Door Window Treatment in Honolulu

September 17, 2020

No matter if your patio doors are a sliding glass door or beautiful French doors, a trait they share is their substantial window panes that offer you an excellent view of the outside. However, so much glass can cause issues, such as energy loss, privacy, and sun glare. That's why you need a quality window cover to enjoy the benefits of your windows.

Learn why interior plantation shutters are the ideal patio door window treatments in Honolulu and how they can mitigate these annoying issues!

The Best Sliding Door Window Treatments For Honolulu

Sliding patio doors in Honolulu.

Sliding glass doors are a popular patio door among many homeowners in Honolulu. True to their name, sliding patio doors usually include at least two full windows, one of which slides past the other. While they let in a lot of natural light, they are also one of the most challenging doors to find treatments for. This amount of glass means a lot of energy loss and privacy worries -- in addition to the glare if your backyard lies to the east or west.

The best sliding glass patio door window covers in Honolulu are plantation shutters. These interior shutters don’t attach to the door itself but instead move in front of it. When sun glare turns into an annoyance, just move the shutters in front of the door and tilt the louvers to direct sunlight -- or shut them all of the way for the most privacy. Most sliding door shutters are built from faux wood, such as our Polywood® shutters, so you even receive energy-efficiency benefits.

Sliding door shutters provide durability and ease of use, thereby allowing frequent activity in and out of the patio. The most common style of shutters on a sliding door is Bypass. Bypass shutters move behind one another on a track to open the entryway.

The Best French Door Window Treatments For Honolulu

If you do not have a sliding glass door leading out to your outdoor space, you might have another common door option: French doors. This type of entryway includes twin doors that open out from one another. The result may be a tad bit more elegant than a sliding glass or regular door, but they share similar drawbacks. Substantial panes of glass cause heat loss and sun glare.

It is no wonder that faux wood plantation shutters also prove to be the preferred French door window treatments in Honolulu. 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 works much more like your standard window shutters, and you don’t have to slide them aside to get through the doorway.
