So Long Outdated Window Treatments For Entry Door Sidelights In Charlotte, NC!11/24/2015Neil Blackwelder Your front door is one of the first things a guest notices about your Charlotte house when they walk up to ring the bell. The glass sidelights on either side contribute to the charm of the front door. But, they reduce your home’s privacy. That’s why window treatments are the ideal choice for the entry door’s sidelights. A number of North Carolinian homeowners have opted for classic window treatments for sidelights, such as blinds or shades. But they may not have realized there’s a more contemporary alternative: entry door sidelight shutters. Blinds & Shades For Entry Door Sidelights Shades and blinds may be the window treatments that come to mind when it comes to sidelights. They’re sold in home improvement stores in sizes close to those of your entry door sidelights. And you already know how to set them up and operate them. Remember that shades and blinds for sidelights come with a few issues you should consider before buying them. First, they will sway any time the door is opened and closed, when the wind shakes the bars against the glass. This results in irritating noise. A fix is to tie them down at the bottom. But this might change the look and have little effect on reducing the noise. Second, these window treatments provide privacy but are poor at temperature control. The fragile material fails to insulate against the external temperature - warm or chilly. And third, blinds and shades don’t have the customized style that wows a guest as they come through the main door. Plantation shutters do. Entry Door Sidelight Shutters In Charlotte, NC Plantation shutters are the modern window treatment you’ve been searching for in Charlotte. Made from basswood or wood polymer, shutters for entry door sidelights are mounted on the door frame while letting the louvers move freely.
