These patio doors you see provided no privacy and the sun streamed in heating the room. We were able to install these Plantation Shutters so they slid completely to the side allowing for complete visibility and total privacy when slid closed. The wall had ample room on 1 side to allow both shutters to slide away from the patio doors. It was a fun job to do with the view from the room and the customer loved the end result.
