So Long Old Fashioned Window Treatments For Entry Door Sidelights In Gainesville, FL!
November 24, 2015
Your front door is the first impression a guest has of your Gainesville home when they walk up to ring the bell. The sidelights on the sides add to the beauty of the door. At the same time, they lessen your home’s privacy. That’s why window fashions are a perfect option for the sidelights on your entry door.
A number of Gainesville homeowners have opted for classic window treatments for sidelights, including blinds or shades. But there’s a more modern option: entry door sidelight shutters.
Entry Door Sidelight Blinds & Shades
Blinds and shades might be the first window coverings that come to mind when you consider sidelights. They’re sold in home stores in sizes close to those of your entry door sidelights. And you’re familiar with how to mount them and open and close them.
However sidelight shades and blinds come with a few considerations to keep in mind before buying them. First, they are known to sway every time the door is open or shut, when the wind rattles the strips against the glass. This leads to unwanted noise. One solution is to tie them down at the bottom. But this would possibly change the style and may not reduce the noise. Second, these window treatments provide privacy but come up short in temperature control. The thin material does little to block the hot or cold outdoor conditions. And third, shades and blinds don’t have the personalized touch that wows a guest as they walk in through the entry door. Plantation shutters do.
Plantation shutters are the modern window fashion you’ve been searching for in Gainesville. Built from hardwood or wood substitute, shutters for entry door sidelights are mounted on the door frame while giving the louvers enough room to tilt. Now opening and shutting the front door does not make any noise.
When the louvers are closed all the way, plantation shutters offer total privacy and temperature control. Simply adjust the louvers by shifting the tilt rod to let in more of the light and the view. And the louvers of Polywood® plantation shutters block 30° of temperature and decrease airflow by up to 45%.
The beauty of plantation shutters for sidelights isn’t limited to energy savings. With a collection of wood stains, louver sizes, frame styles, and a paint matching program, you finally have the modernized touch you’ve been looking for. Our specialists help you in choosing custom window shutters for your entry sidelights. And we’ll mount them to fit your sidelights flawlessly.
