September 17, 2020

No matter if your patio doors are a sliding glass door or stylish French doors, something they have in common is their substantial window panes that offer you an excellent view out into your yard. However, all that glass may cause issues, such as heat loss, privacy, and sun glare. That's why you need an effective window treatment to get the most out of your windows.

Learn why interior plantation shutters are the best patio door window treatments in New York City and how they can mitigate these common challenges!

The Most Functional Sliding Door Window Treatments For New York City

Sliding patio doors in New York City.

Sliding glass doors are a common patio door among lots of homeowners in New York City. As their name indicates, the doors usually consist of at least two full-size windows, one of which slides in front of the other. While they allow in a lot of sunlight, they are also some of the most frustrating doors to find treatments for. So much glass means a ton of energy loss and privacy issues -- in addition to the glare if your backyard faces east or west.

The best sliding glass patio door window treatments in New York City are interior shutters. These interior shutters don’t attach to the door itself but instead slide in front of it. When sun glare becomes an issue, slide the shutters in front of the door and adjust the louvers to control light -- or close them entirely for full privacy. Most sliding door shutters are built from a wood substitute, such as our Polywood® shutters, so you also see energy-saving benefits.

Sliding door shutters offer longevity and easy operation, thereby allowing continual use of the patio. The most common configuration of shutters on a sliding door is Bypass. Bypass shutters slide behind each other on a track to open the doorway.

Patio Doors with Plantation Shutters in New York City

If you do not have a sliding glass door exiting out onto your outdoor space, you may have another common door type: French doors. This type of entryway includes two doors that open out from each other. The effect might be a bit more impressive than a sliding glass or regular door, but they possess the same drawbacks. Big pieces of glass permit energy loss and sun glare.

It should come as no surprise that wood substitute interior shutters also are the ultimate French door window treatments in New York City. They have the same flair, longevity, and environmental friendliness that sliding door shutters have, except they can attach right onto the French door frame. Consequently, your French door plantation shutter acts a lot more like your common window shutters, and you don’t have to slide them over to walk through the door.
