So Long Old Fashioned Window Treatments For Entry Door Sidelights In Fort Myers, FL!11/24/2015Charlie Cole and Brady Parker Your entry door is the first impression a guest has of your Fort Myers home as they’re knocking. The glass sidelights on either side contribute to the beauty of the front door. But, they reduce your home’s privacy. This is where window treatments are the ideal solution for the entry door’s sidelights. A share Floridian dwellers have opted for traditional window treatments for sidelights, like shades and blinds. But there’s a more fashionable alternative: entry door sidelight shutters. Shades & Blinds For Entry Door Sidelights Blinds, shades, and other old fashioned window treatments may be the window treatments 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 mount them and open and close them. But sidelight shades and blinds have some issues you should consider before going shopping for them. First, they are known to sway any time the door is open or shut, when the wind bounces the strips against the glass. This results in 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 provide privacy but come up short in temperature control. The frail material is not effective at blocking 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 entry door. Plantation shutters do.
