We were requested to shutter a set of french doors for a client in Bellevue last year. The wrought iron door handle and lock were very large and protruding which presented a problem. If a standard size stile was used, the louvers would not have been able to open and close. One solution to this complication would be to mount the shutters on the outside of the window casing with a large, bulky hinging frame. After doing an onsite consulation, our designer, Phillip, resolved the issue by making the two outside stiles on the doors larger than all of the inner stiles. Thus, the shutters could be flush mounted inside the french door jamb and the louvers would open and close as intended.
This can be made possible when you hire a shutter specialist that has over 20 years design and installation experience. When combined with our own manufacturing facility, it enables us to custom make any part of the shutter to suit the design requirements. Please see the photos for greater detail.
