Five Examples of Door Handle Cutouts

Different styles of door handles can be accomidated with door handle cutouts in shutters on door windows.

Many homes today have at least one door with windows. Often this is a patio door or back door. When a homeowner decides to put shutters throughout their home, they often want to add a shutter on the door window so it matches the rest of the windows, as well for the convenience of privacy and light control. Our door shutters are face-mounted over the window portion of the door. This often times leads to the need for a door-handle cutout to accommodate the door handle. Here are five examples of doors with different kinds of handles and the door handle cutouts that were built into the shutters to accommodate them. If you're interested in shutters for your door windows, call us, and we can help create the perfect custom door shutter so you can have your privacy and light control, while maintaining the function of your door.
