Have you heard of bypass shutters? Often, sliding glass doors are covered by vertical blinds or a slide-vue. However, for those who like the look of plantation shutters, the bypass shutter offers an option to cover your sliding glass door.
Bypass shutters usually consist of several shutter panels mounted onto a track above your window. The panels will slide on the rail and stack neatly on the side of your choice.
The only thing to note and consider with shutters is that when installing, we may need to remove a bit of the trim or baseboard to accommodate the shutter frame. (Don't worry; there won't be any gaps!)
Here is a project we recently did in Pleasanton, featuring two sliding doors with bypass shutters, as well as regular composite shutters with the Ridge Deco 3'' frame in Pure White by Norman Window Fashions. Scroll to the end to see the results.
