So Long Old Fashioned Window Treatments For Entry Door Sidelights In Orlando, FL!11/24/2015Todd Hansen Your entry door is a key design element of your Orlando home - and one that guests take note of as they’re knocking. Glass sidelights enhance the beauty of the front door. At the same time, they take away from your privacy. Say hello to window shutters. These window coverings are an excellent solution for your entry door sidelights. A number of Floridian homeowners went with traditional window treatments for sidelights, like blinds and shades. But they may not have realized there’s a more modern choice: entry door sidelight shutters. Blinds & Shades For Entry Door Sidelights Shades and blinds may be the first window coverings that come to mind when you consider sidelights. They’re available in home stores in sizes that may not be an exact fit for your entry door sidelights. And you’re familiar with how to mount them and operate them. However shades and blinds for sidelights come with a few considerations to keep in mind before purchasing them. First, they’re likely to sway any time the door is used, when the wind rattles the strips against the glass. This leads to annoying noise. One way to fix that is to tie them down at the bottom. But this can potentially change the look and may not reduce the noise. Second, blinds and shades offer privacy but come up short in temperature control. The frail material is not effective at blocking the outside temperature - hot or cold. And third, shades and blinds don’t have the customized style that blows a guest away as they enter through the main door. Plantation shutters do. Entry Door Sidelight Shutters In Orlando, FL Plantation shutters are the contemporary window covering you’ve been shopping for in Orlando. Constructed from solid wood or wood polymer, shutters for entry door sidelights are installed on the frame of the door while allowing the louvers to move. This way, opening and closing the front door does not create any noise. Tilt the louvers closed, and plantation shutters provide total privacy and temperature control. Simply adjust the louvers by shifting the tilt rod to see more of the sunshine and the scenery. And with Polywood® plantation shutters, the louvers insulate against 30° of temperature and lessen airflow by up to 45%. The charm of plantation shutters for sidelights is more than energy savings. With a collection of wood stains, louver sizes, frame styles, and a paint matching program, you finally have the modern style you love.
