So Long Old Fashioned Window Treatments For Entry Door Sidelights In Fort Myers, FL!
November 24, 2015
The entry door is one of the first things a guest notices about your Fort Myers house when they walk up to ring the bell. The glass sidelights on either side enhance the beauty of the entry door. But, they reduce your home’s privacy. That’s why window treatments are the ideal solution for the sidelights on your entry door.
A share Fort Myers homeowners went with traditional window treatments for sidelights, like blinds and shades. But they may not have realized there’s a more modern alternative: entry door sidelight shutters.
Shades & Blinds For Entry Door Sidelights
Blinds, shades, and other old fashioned window treatments could be the first window treatments you think of 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 operate them.
But sidelight shades and blinds come with a few issues you should consider before purchasing them. First, they’re likely to sway any time the door is used, when the wind bounces the bars against the glass. This leads to annoying noise. A fix is to tie them down at the bottom. But this might change the style and have little effect on reducing the noise. Second, blinds and shades offer privacy but come up short in temperature control. The fragile material does little to block the external temperature - warm or chilly. And third, blinds and shades don’t have the customized style that impresses your guests as they walk in through the main door. Plantation shutters do.
Plantation shutters are the modern window treatment you’ve been searching for in Fort Myers. Crafted from hardwood or wood synthetic, shutters for entry door sidelights are fixed to the door frame while giving the louvers enough room to tilt. This means using the main door does not lead to any noise.
When the louvers are closed all the way, plantation shutters provide complete privacy and temperature control. Easily tilt the louvers by shifting the tilt rod to let in more of the light and the view. And Polywood® plantation shutters louvers insulate against 30° of temperature and reduce airflow by up to 45%.
The elegance of plantation shutters for sidelights isn’t limited to energy savings. With a variety of louver sizes, frame styles, wood stains, and a paint matching program, you finally get the modern style you love. Our professionals aid you in selecting custom window shutters for your entry sidelights. And we’ll mount them to fit your sidelights flawlessly.
