So Long Traditional Window Treatments For Entry Door Sidelights In Charlotte, NC!
November 24, 2015
Your front door is the first impression a guest has of your Charlotte home as they’re knocking. The sidelights on the sides enhance the charm of the entry door. But, they reduce your overall privacy. That’s why window treatments are an excellent option for the sidelights on your entry door.
A share Charlotte residents have opted for outdated window treatments for sidelights, such as blinds or shades. But there’s a more contemporary choice: entry door sidelight shutters.
Entry Door Sidelight Blinds & Shades
Shades and blinds may be the first window treatments you think of when you consider sidelights. They’re sold in hardware stores in sizes close to those of your entry door sidelights. And you’re familiar with how to mount them and operate them.
However shades and blinds for sidelights have some issues you should consider before purchasing them. First, they will sway every 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 offer privacy but come up short in 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 blows a guest away as they enter through the main door. Plantation shutters do.
Plantation shutters are the modern window treatment you’ve been searching for in Charlotte. Made from hardwood or wood synthetic, shutters for entry door sidelights are mounted on the door frame while letting the louvers move freely. This means opening and shutting the front door does not make any noise.
When the louvers are closed all the way, plantation shutters give you ultimate temperature control and privacy. Just move the louvers by shifting the tilt rod to let in more of the scenery and the sunshine. And the louvers of Polywood® plantation shutters insulate against 30° of temperature and reduce airflow by up to 45%.
The charm of plantation shutters for sidelights isn’t limited to energy savings. With a wide selection of wood stains, louver sizes, frame styles, and a paint matching program, you are finally able to enjoy the contemporary look you want. Our professionals assist you in picking custom window shutters for your entry sidelights. And we’ll install them to fit your sidelights flawlessly.
