So Long Old Fashioned Window Treatments For Entry Door Sidelights In Gainesville, FL!11/24/2015Eric Ramsey 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 take away from your overall privacy. This is where window coverings are a perfect option for the sidelights on your entry door. A share Floridian homeowners have opted for outdated window treatments for sidelights, including blinds or shades.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. You can find them in home stores in sizes close to those of your entry door sidelights. And you’re familiar with how to set them up and open and close them. However sidelight shades and blinds have some considerations to keep in mind before buying them. First, they’re likely to sway every time the door is open or shut, when the wind bangs the strips against the glass. This results in unwanted noise. One solution is to tie them down at the bottom. But this can potentially change the style and may not reduce the noise. Second, these window treatments provide privacy but are poor at 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 blows a guest away as they walk in through the entry door. Plantation shutters do. Entry Door Sidelight Shutters In Gainesville, FL Plantation shutters are the modern window fashion you’ve been shopping for in Gainesville.
