Custom Shutters for French Doors

Window Treatment Options for French Glass Doors

We offer a variety of shutters and shades that are perfect for French doors


Shutters are an elegant choice for your French doors whether they open to the patio, deck or backyard. Choose Danmer’s custom wood shutters built from the highest quality Bassword and Premier Hardwood or select our energy efficient Thermalite™ shutters made from recyclable, non-toxic material. Either way your beautiful French doors will never look better.


Shades are practical, cost effective and perfect as window treatments for French doors. They can be opened all of the way to provide easy access in and out of the doors or they can be closed to manage light and airflow which can help you save on heating and cooling costs.

Danmer offers Hunter Douglas window treatments including vertical Luminette shades which are particularly good for French doors. This fabric creates a beautiful, dramatic look when the sun shines through, but also offers the privacy you need if your doors face a street or sidewalk. Energy efficient Duette honeycomb shades are another popular choice from the Hunter Douglas line providing a functional, yet attractive window covering.

French Door Window Treatment Considerations

The most important things to consider when choosing window treatments for French doors are purpose and location. If you’re looking for privacy and blackout ability for a bedroom, then blackout shades or custom shutters may be a good choice. If you need a cost efficient and energy efficient way of covering busy patio doors, roller shades are an excellent option.

Don’t forget about the need to be energy efficient. French doors can let a lot of light and air into the home making air conditioning and heating more difficult. Thermalite™ Shutters from Danmer insulate up to 3 times more than wood shutters and quite a bit more than shades or drapes. While the initial investment may be higher, it will be well worth it after all of the savings you’ll enjoy on heating and cooling costs. You may even qualify for a federal tax credit for energy efficiency.
