Plantation Shutters for Patio Doors



There are different options for operating plantation shutters on patio doors. Bi-fold or accordion-style shutters allow you to fold the panels to one side, providing a complete view when desired. Sliding shutters work similarly to sliding patio doors, with panels sliding on a track. You can choose the operation style that suits your needs and complements the door’s functionality.

Louver Size

The size of the louvers, or slats, can vary depending on personal preference and the overall aesthetic you want to achieve. Larger louvers allow more light and provide a more unobstructed view when opened, while smaller louvers offer a more traditional and detailed look.


Plantation shutters can be customized with various finishes, stains, or paint colors to match your interior decor. Depending on your preferences and requirements, you can also choose between different hardware options, such as hinges, handles, or locks.

Professional Installation

It is recommended to have plantation shutters professionally installed, especially for patio doors, to ensure a proper fit, and smooth operation and to maximize their functionality and longevity.
