Goodbye Outdated Window Treatments For Entry Door Sidelights In St. George, UT!
November 24, 2015
The entry door is a key design element of your St. George home - and one that guests take note of when they land on the doormat. The sidelights on the sides add to the elegance of the entry door. At the same time, they take away from your home’s privacy. Say hello to window shutters. These window fashions are the ideal choice for the entry door’s sidelights.
Many St. George residents have opted for traditional window treatments for sidelights, such as blinds or shades. But there’s a more contemporary alternative: entry door sidelight shutters.
Blinds & Shades For Entry Door Sidelights
Shades and blinds could be the first window treatments you think of as options for sidelights. They’re available in home stores in sizes close to those of your entry door sidelights. And you already know how to mount them and open and close them.
Remember that blinds and shades for sidelights come with a few considerations to keep in mind before buying them. First, they’re likely to sway any time the door is used, when the wind bounces the strips against the glass. This creates annoying noise. A fix is to tie them down at the bottom. But this can potentially change the style and have little effect on reducing the noise. Second, these window treatments give you privacy but aren’t suited for temperature control. The fragile material is not effective at blocking the external temperature - warm or chilly. And third, neither shades nor blinds have the personalized touch that blows a guest away as they come through the main door. Plantation shutters do.
Plantation shutters are the modernized window fashion you’ve been shopping for in St. George. Built from basswood or wood substitute, shutters for entry door sidelights are installed on the door’s frame while letting the louvers move freely. Now opening and shutting the entry door does not make any noise.
When the louvers are closed all the way, plantation shutters give you total privacy and temperature control. Simply adjust the louvers with a tilt rod to see more of the scenery and the sunshine. And Polywood® plantation shutters louvers deflect 30° of temperature and lessen airflow by up to 45%.
The beauty of plantation shutters for sidelights is more than energy savings. With a collection of louver sizes, frame styles, wood stains, and a paint matching program, you are finally able to enjoy the contemporary style you love. Our professionals help you in selecting custom window shutters for your entry sidelights. And we’ll set them up to fit your sidelights seamlessly.
