Sidelight Window Treatments In Washington DC

Sidelights are the long, slim windows on either side of your front door. They brighten up your entrance, give you a view of your front porch, and incorporate a delightful decorative embellishment for your house. But when bare, they can also give an unwanted view into your interior. Luckily, Sunburst offers the ideal solution with our custom-built sidelight window shutters in Washington DC.

Entry Door Sidelight Window Shutters Give You A Higher Degree Of Privacy

As a stranger lingers at on your front step, you don't want them peering into your living space through a sheer curtain or uncovered window. When you install entry door sidelight window shutters, you are able to completely obscure the view of your home's interior, maintaining your privacy. Of course, if you need to look outside, a simple adjustment of the louvers will give you a view to the outdoors.

Polywood® Shutters Offer Phenomenal Energy Savings

It's easy to see that a cracked door could cause energy loss, but you might not recognize how much heat can escape through windows. Sidelight window shutters will help prevent heat loss. Our Polywood® plantation shutters are so adept at keeping your inside air in your home that they may even earn you an energy tax credit as well!

Interior Shutters For Sidelight Windows Are Better For Families

When a visitor comes up the driveway, your kids and pets are likely running to your front door to look through the sidelights and check who is there. If you have flimsy blinds, they'll probably get knocked around and even bent. Other window coverings can be swung aside, making way for small handprints or pawprints on the glass. If you use plantation shutters for sidelight windows in Washington DC, you won’t have these issues. Instead, you'll have a solid, long-lasting solution that stands up well to rambunctious little ones. And they still provide a look outside whenever you open the louvers.

Sidelight Window Shutters In Washington DC Fit Any Shape Or Size Of Window

Shopping for blinds, shades, or drapes that fit properly on your sidelight windows is challenging. Sidelights usually don't come in a standard size and may be slim or as wide as the door. A custom-made solution is your most effective answer, and that's precisely what you'll get with sidelight window shutters in Washington DC from Sunburst. Our versatile products are always made to fit the exact measurements of any window.

Enjoy An Attractive, Put Together Look In Your Entryway

With sidelights matching your door, your house will boast a well-balanced and beautiful entrance. Fortunately, Sunburst’s sidelight window interior shutters come in many paint and stain colors to seamlessly coordinate with your unique interior.

There’s Always Room For Sidelight Window Shutters

In some foyers, you may have little space around sidelights. If that is the case in your entrance, putting up a hanging treatment might not be ideal. Luckily, our sidelight window shutters are installed over the frame, so they remain functionable and look beautiful despite the surrounding area.


Our Sidelight Window Shutters Stay Secure No Matter What

One of the wonderful things about sidelight window shutters is that you don’t have to wonder about them swaying, shifting or scraping against the glass. They invariably stay fixed in place. Conversely, drapes, shades, and blinds can be impacted by the vacuum effect that happens when you use the door. They will frequently sway, shake, and may also get trapped in the door.
