So Long Old Fashioned Window Treatments For Entry Door Sidelights In Washington DC!

November 24, 2015
Your front door is the first impression a guest has of your Washington DC home when they land on the doormat. Glass sidelights enhance the beauty of the entry door. However, they diminish your overall privacy. That’s why window coverings are the ideal option for your entry door sidelights.
Many Washington DC residents installed classic window treatments for sidelights, like blinds and shades. Yet there’s a more fashionable alternative: entry door sidelight shutters.

Blinds & Shades For Entry Door Sidelights

Shades and blinds could be the first window treatments you think of when you consider sidelights. You can find them in home improvement stores in sizes close to those of your entry door sidelights. And you already know how to mount them and use them.
Remember that blinds and shades for sidelights come with a few considerations to keep in mind before going shopping for them. First, they are known to sway any time the door is opened and closed, when the wind bangs the slats against the glass. This creates irritating noise. A fix is to tie them down at the bottom. But this might change the style and have little effect on reducing the noise. Second, shades and blinds give you privacy but come up short in temperature control. The fragile material is not effective at blocking the external temperature - warm or chilly. And third, shades and blinds don’t have the customized style that impresses your guests as they enter through the front door. Plantation shutters do.

Entry Door Sidelight Shutters In Washington DC 
Plantation shutters are the modern window covering you’ve been looking for in Washington DC. Crafted from basswood or wood substitute, shutters for entry door sidelights are installed on the frame of the door while giving the louvers enough room to tilt. This means opening and shutting the front door does not make any noise.
Closed entirely, plantation shutters provide ultimate privacy and control over temperature. Simply adjust the louvers with a tilt rod to see more of the light and the view. And with Polywood® plantation shutters, the louvers block 30° of temperature and lessen airflow by up to 45%.
The beauty of plantation shutters for sidelights isn’t limited to energy savings. With a collection of frame styles, wood stains, louver sizes, and a paint matching program, you are finally able to enjoy the modern look you love. Our professionals assist you in choosing custom window shutters for your entry sidelights. And we’ll set them up to fit your sidelights perfectly.
