Plantation Shutters For Doors

Plantation Shutters: A Treatment Not Just For Windows

Plantation shutters are certainly one of the best ways to brighten up a room while controlling the natural light, but did you know that you could also choose to dress up your doors with the same high quality wood shutters?

At Kirtz® we don’t just give you customized window treatments, however; instead we can help you turn your room into a work of art with matching plantation shutters all around. For a seamless look we’ll even be able to match the plantation shutters of your choosing with your own furniture, the wood trimming throughout the home, or other design elements in a room. We can also do anything from plain wood, staining, or glazing!

As seen in the photo above, many homeowners like to dress up their sunburst windows and doors with plantation shutters to achieve an elegant appearance, but other popular choices include adding them to French Doors or patio doors. The addition of shutters on doors rather than blinds helps to eliminate the annoying banging of the blinds as the doors open and closes.

The nice part about plantation shutters on the doors is that, just like with the windows, they aren’t just beautiful, but functional! Homeowners can choose to let outside light in or completely close the louvers for a darker room or to make use of indoor light only. Kirtz® offers customers the ability to decide between 2 ½ inch, 3 ½ inch, or 4 ½ louvers which makes a difference in how much the user sees beyond the room they’re in when the shutters are opened.

If you’re in the market for plantation shutters for your doors let us help give you something elegant and long lasting. You can give Kirtz® a call at 1-800-416-6455 or by clicking right here to get started on your next customized shutter project.
