Okay, okay, yes we are a plantation shutter factory so we may seem biased, but plantation shutters do make a wonderful addition to sliding glass doors in many cases.  Plantation shutters are not just limited to windows.  They are the perfect complement to doors of all kinds, including sliding glass doors.  If you have shutters on your windows, create a continuous look by extending them to your doors as well.  They offer tremendous architectural appeal, light control, heat control, and a clear view outside.
