Sidelight Window Treatments In Seattle

Sidelights are the long, thin windows on either side of your front door. They illuminate your entry, give you a front porch view, and add a lovely decorative embellishment for your home. But when left uncovered, they can also give a full view into your home. Luckily, Sunburst delivers the perfect answer with our custom sidelight window shutters in Seattle.

Front Door Sidelight Window Shutters Give You Better Privacy

As a stranger lingers at your door, you don't want them looking into your living space through an exposed window or sheer curtain. When you use entry door sidelight window shutters, you can completely obscure the view into the interior of your home, keeping your privacy intact. Of course, should you want to peek outside, a small tilt of the louvers will let you see outside.

Polywood® Shutters Offer Phenomenal Energy Savings

It's easy to see that a cracked door could cause energy loss, but you may not realize how much heat can transfer through windows. Your sidelight window shutters will help stop heat loss in its tracks. Sunburst’s Polywood® plantation shutters are so adept at trapping the inside temperature in your home that they may even earn you an energy tax credit as well!

Plantation Shutters For Sidelight Windows Are More Beneficial For Families

When a visitor drives up the driveway, your kids and pets are probably running to the front door to look through the sidelights to check who has arrived. If you have flimsy blinds, they'll probably get shaken and maybe bent. Other window coverings can be swung aside, resulting in small pawprints or handprints on the window pane. If you use plantation shutters for sidelight windows in Seattle, these problems won't occur. Rather, you'll have a strong, durable solution that withstands mischievous little ones. And they still give a look outdoors when you adjust the louvers.

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

Hunting for drapes, shades, or blinds that fit correctly on sidelight windows is difficult. Sidelights typically don't follow standard sizing and may be thin or as wide as the door. A customized window treatment is your most workable answer, and that's exactly what you'll get with sidelight window shutters in Seattle by Sunburst. Our multi-functional products are always built to suit the exact measurements of any window.

Enjoy A Stylish, Uniform Look For Your Entryway

With sidelights matching your door, your home will have the advantage of a uniform and chic entrance. Fortunately, Sunburst’s sidelight window indoor shutters are available in a wide assortment of paint and stain hues to appropriately harmonize with your particular interior.

You’ll Always Have Space For Sidelight Window Shutters

Some entryways might not have much space around sidelights. If that is the case in your home, putting up a hanging treatment might not be possible. Luckily, our sidelight window shutters are installed over the frame, so they are operational and look beautiful despite the surrounding area.


Our Sidelight Window Shutters Always Stay Secure

One of the wonderful things about our sidelight window shutters is that you don’t have to worry about them shifting, swaying, or scraping against the glass. They always stay fixed in place. In contrast, blinds, shades, and drapes can be sucked into the vacuum effect that occurs when you use the door. They will often sway, shake, and might even get caught in the door.
