Can you put shutters on French doors?

It can be a minefield to find the right blinds or furnishing solution for your French doors. Although they look great in any home, they can let in a lot of unwanted light and they can be drafty if they happen to be vintage French doors. Shutters are a great option if you’re looking for something a little unique in your home. Not only do shutters look great, but they offer many distinctive benefits.

Shutters can be a challenge to measure and fit, meaning they may not look their best over French doors. Since French doors can be a variety of shapes and sizes, with handles and window frames potentially sticking out we wouldn’t recommend shutter blinds as the best fit for a French door. However, shutters are designed to perfectly fit windows and bay windows, giving a French feel to your bedroom in the evening.
