The Window Treatment For Entry Door Sidelights: Sidelight Shutters in Charlotte We commonly are asked at the end of the consultation, as we’re ready to leave: “Can you put anything on these small windows by my front door?” And we say, “We can add sidelight shutters!" North Carolinians were tired of the sheer curtains over the sidelight windows, closing off the view and the light. Isn’t the view and light the actual reason for sidelight windows in the first place? On top of that, those drapes can go through daily wear and tear, with pets, kids, and guests coming in and out of your entry door on a daily basis. Despite hold-downs along the bottom, blinds ultimately rattle as the wind breezes by when the door opens and closes. Your home’s best alternative isn’t to hide your sidelight windows. It’s to enhance them with elegant interior sidelight shutters in Charlotte. The best thing of all? Shutters are still tight to the doorframe even when the panels are opened and closed. How Are Sidelight Shutters Installed? The first step is to measure the length and width of your windows. Then, we record the place where the door frame meets the glass. We can construct the shutter frames to go over just the glass – or we can cover the full section by using a rail at the top and bottom to obscure the solid panel of the door door. In many cases, the panels will be able to swing open and sit against the wall that’s next to the door. This provides you with a full unobstructed view if the panels are opened and the privacy you crave when you close them. With our one-of-a-kind Polywood® shutters, we can build your shutters with a seamless look on your entry doors. A larger rail along the bottom will cover the wall space behind the shutter. That way, the shutter louvers can begin up in the glass – instead of covering the space below. We can mount Polywood shutters on doors made of wood, steel, or fiberglass. Rest assured, we’ll advise you in picking the louver size, the frame style, the paint and stain colors, and other options. After we leave your home and we go to our shop, we’ll order your hand-built plantation shutters with enough room for the louvers to function effortlessly – and a look that genuinely highlights your entry door.
