Shutters and windows of course are a perfect match. But what about adding shutters to your doors too? Full-height shutters on doors to the outside offer many benefits. You can have both privacy and allow as much light in to your home as you wish. You can match your door and window dressings perfectly for a neat, architectural look. Shutters are low maintenance, durable and easy to wipe free of dust. Whether you have a large set of sliding doors from your kitchen or want to tie your French doors into your design scheme, our full-height shutters can be created to fit perfectly. And to prove our point, we have a chat below to one happy customer who created a slick solution for his front door.


Jeff from Canada is on his fifth project with The Shutter Store, with a sixth set of shutters currently on order. His most recent project was shutters for his front door and windows – and we’re sure you’ll agree the end result - pictured below - is pretty stylish.

“I chose to install shutters on the front door and look out windows as the main desire of moving to this property was to create distance from the road. A typical style in high density subdivisions in Canada is to do a frosted patterned glass. While this is great for privacy it inhibits light and prevents any view. The shutters are a great option as it allowed both privacy and maximizes light and views. Overall, the style in my home is a modern, estate style, open-plan concept. The full-height shutters do a great job of adding to this look and feel.

My main motive on my first shutter project from The Shutter Store was actually cost.  I received estimates from several companies and all were far higher than The Shutter Store, and with less options. The measuring is very simple. I originally used the measuring guides online but have reverted to taking them myself now with no problem. I install them myself with ease - typically in about 20-30 minutes per window. I have another one planned once I finish my basement and my main reason why I love your shutters so much is the full range of use they provide - from the great look, to maximum light, to angled filtered light to full privacy. The cost is also actually cheaper than buying a standard blind for many sizes! I found the whole experience fantastic.”
