Frequently Asked Questions

Can shutters be used on bifold doors?
Absolutely! Shutters and bifold doors can be a match made in design heaven, offering a delightful blend of style, functionality, and convenience. Imagine sleek shutters sliding in perfect harmony with your bifold doors, transforming your space and enriching your lifestyle.

Here’s how it works:

  • Two styles, double the delights: You can choose full-height shutters that mirror the full length of your bifold doors, offering complete coverage and privacy. Or, opt for café-style shutters that cover the lower half, letting in light and showcasing the view while maintaining lower-half privacy.
  • Light & privacy control: Adjust the louvres on your shutters to control the amount of sunlight entering your space, creating a sun-drenched haven or a cosy ambiance for evenings. Maintain privacy from curious eyes while still enjoying the connection with the outdoors.
  • Effortless access: Bifold shutters glide open and close seamlessly alongside your bifold doors, allowing you to easily access your outdoor space without wrestling with bulky curtains.
  • Insulation boost: Shutters add an extra layer of insulation, helping regulate temperatures and potentially reducing energy costs. Keep your space cool in summer and warm in winter with effortless style.
  • Durable and easy to maintain: Choose materials like PVC or MDF for durability and easy cleaning. No more grappling with heavy drapes or battling dust traps!

How much are bifold shutters?
The cost of bifold shutters depends on several factors:

  • Type of shutters: Full-height shutters tend to be pricier than café-style options.
  • Material: Wood shutters are the most expensive, while PVC or MDF offer more affordable solutions.
  • Size and complexity: Larger bifold doors and custom designs naturally cost more than smaller and simpler configurations.
  • Installation: Professional installation is recommended for ensuring smooth operation and proper fit, and its cost will vary depending on the local market and complexity of the project.

Are bifold shutters good?
In most cases, yes! They offer a unique combination of style, functionality, and ease of use, especially for large openings.

What are the best window coverings for bifold doors?
The best option depends on your individual needs and preferences. Here are some alternatives to consider:

  • Blinds: Vertical blinds offer sleek lines and good light control, while Venetian blinds provide classic charm and flexibility.
  • Curtains: Sheer curtains add a touch of elegance and light diffusion, while heavier drapes offer complete privacy and blackout potential.
  • Roman shades: These provide a clean and contemporary look, offering good light control and a stylish alternative to traditional curtains.

Ultimately, the best window covering for your bifold doors is the one that best suits your style, functionality needs, and budget. Weigh the pros and cons of shutters against other options to find the perfect match for your space!

More About Doorway and Bi-Fold Shutters

When choosing the right plantation shutter for a door or window, it’s a good idea to be fully aware of the main options available before deciding on the most appropriate product for your needs. At Riverside Shutters, we offer a concise range of practical, safe and stylish plantation shutters that will fit any doorway imaginable.

Our made to measure door shutters are available in a wide choice of styles, colours and finishes although we always recommend a lightweight product for ease of use such as any of the products listed in our light wood Memphis range. This is particularly well suited for wider doorway applications. This may also require our full-width tracking system, which allows full access to all your doors and openings.

If the width of the doorway is narrow, a more solid material type might be more suitable. In particular, our Lancaster plantation shutters (made from MDF) and our equally strong Memphis range, are both perfect choices for this purpose.

FULL HEIGHT DOOR SHUTTERS

The actual style or configuration of the shutter system you choose to go with will play a vital role in ensuring the level of privacy and functionality that you can realistically expect your new wooden blind system to provide.

Full height shutters are purpose built to cover the entire height of the doorway. This means you either have complete privacy when fully closed, or the full amount of natural light coming in when the shutter is entirely open.

SPLIT-LEVEL DOORWAY SHUTTERS

Our split-level doorway shutters consists of a split level configuration. This means that you get two or more wooden door shutters on top of each other. The advantage of this is that some of the blinds can be opened whilst leaving any remaining shutters fully or partially closed. This enables you to let more air and light to circulate throughout the home, and blocking out exterior sound, light and other pollutants during the evening or whenever you need some added privacy.
