Sidelight Window Treatments In Gainesville

Sidelights are the tall, slim windows on the sides of your front door. They brighten up your entryway, give you a view out front, and add an attractive decorative feature for your home. But when left uncovered, they can also allow for an unwanted view into your home. Fortunately, Sunburst offers the ideal answer with our custom sidelight window shutters in Gainesville.

Entry Door Sidelight Window Shutters Give You More Privacy

If a stranger stands at on your front step, you don't want them peeking into your home through an exposed window or sheer curtain. When you install entry door sidelight window shutters, you can completely obscure the view of your home's interior, preserving your privacy. Of course, should you want to look out, an effortless adjustment of the louvers will open your view to the outdoors.

Polywood® Shutters Give Phenomenal Energy Savings

It's easy to see that an open door may lead to energy loss, but you may not know how much heat can escape through windows. Your sidelight window shutters will help stop heat loss in its tracks. Our Polywood® plantation shutters are so good at keeping your interior air in your home that they even qualify for an energy tax credit too!

Plantation Shutters For Sidelight Windows Are More Beneficial For Families

When a visitor comes up your driveway, your kids and pets are likely scampering to your front door to peer through the sidelights to check who has come. If you have flimsy blinds, they'll likely be bumped and maybe bent. Other treatments can be moved to the side, making way for tiny handprints or pawprints on the glass. If you use plantation shutters for sidelight windows in Gainesville, you won’t have these problems. Instead, you'll have a solid, reliable solution that holds up well to rambunctious little ones. And they still provide a look outside when you open the louvers.

Sidelight Window Shutters In Gainesville Fit Windows Of Any Shape Or Size

Finding drapes, blinds, or shades that fit correctly on your sidelight windows is difficult. Sidelights typically don't follow standard sizing and might be slender or wide like the door. A customized solution is your best choice, and that's precisely what you'll get with sidelight window shutters in Gainesville by Sunburst. Our versatile solutions are always built to suit the exact dimensions of any window.

Enjoy A Stylish, Uniform Look For Your Entryway

When you match your sidelights to your door, your home will have the advantage of a consistent and beautiful entryway. Fortunately, Sunburst’s sidelight window plantation shutters come in various paint and stain colors to seamlessly harmonize with your particular interior.

There’s Always Space For Sidelight Window Shutters

In some entryways, you might not have much space around sidelights. If that describes your entrance, installing a hanging treatment may not work. Luckily, our sidelight window shutters are installed over the frame, so they remain functionable and look beautiful regardless of the surrounding space.


Our Sidelight Window Shutters Stay Secure At All Times

One of the great things about sidelight window shutters is that you never have to wonder about them shifting, swaying, or bumping against the glass. They invariably stay fixed in place. On the other hand, drapes, shades, and blinds can be caught up in the vacuum effect that happens when you use the door. They will usually swing, rattle, and might even get caught in the door.
