Sliding Glass Door Shutters: San Jose’s Charming Alternative to Vertical Blinds When you’re looking for the right window treatment for your sliding glass door in San Jose, plantation shutters are the perfect solution. Durable and elegant, these sliding shutters have become the preferred alternative to outdated and flimsy vertical blinds. We bring you plantation shutters in San Jose in two configurations, depending on how much room is surrounding your home’s sliding glass doors. Sliding Shutters: Bypass Configuration Bypass shutters consist of two or three sets of shutters which move back and forth on a top-mounted track. In the bypass configuration, one set of panels slides in front of the other, allowing you to access your door. This option is best for spaces where there is not a lot of space for shutters to go in front of the doors. They also work just as great in a space where there is not much room on on the door’s sides. Sliding Shutters: Bifold Configuration Bifold shutters are composed of two sets of shutters that open by folding out from the center and are guided by a top-mounted track. With the bifold configuration, the panels fold back to back, giving you maximum access to your glass door. This option is best for rooms where the view is important – and there is enough space to fold the shutters to take full advantage of the view. How Do We Design Sliding Shutters? We start by measuring the length and width of each segment of your glass door. We also note how much space there is next to the doors. This tells us whether a bypass or bifold configuration should be used. Then, we return to our shop and order the hand-fashioned plantation shutters to fit those configurations. Taking advantage of cutting-edge technology and customized design templates based on the dimensions of your door, we design and manufacture your sliding glass door shutters ,integrating the finishes and colors of your choosing. Our skilled installers put up the sliding shutters on your sliding glass doors, making sure that the louvers can open and that the panels are mobile. This offers you an open view and simplifies cleaning your shutters. Call 408-831-3373 or fill out the form below to schedule your free in-home consultation for sliding glass doors in San Jose today!
