Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to Southern California Sunburst Shutters was founded in the early '70s in Phoenix, AZ, by people who thought they could make a better shutter than any other in America. The vision to be the best shutter company has transformed every aspect of the window treatment industry. Sunburst offered an in-home consultation where design specialists brought samples into a customer’s residence to show them the steps in selecting the best window treatment product. In addition, Sunburst set out to hire sales staff that were well-mannered and friendly – and, at the same time, experienced and helpful. Homeowners across America fell in love with Sunburst Shutters fast. In the '70s, draperies and blinds were the common window treatments in most homes. That’s when Sunburst Shutters introduced customers to a more enduring and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters. At first, the company offered wood shutters solely. But it was quickly apparent that Sunburst should create the ultimate shutter – one that provides premium energy efficiency, and looks as elegant 20 years from now as the day you purchased it. After much research, sampling, and testing, Sunburst released its Polywood Shutters. In 2008, Sunburst Shutters expanded its selection into blinds, shades, draperies, and window film – and changed its name to Sunburst Shutters & Window Fashions. Now, Sunburst Shutters & Window Fashions offers any treatment for any size or shape of window – all custom-made and professionally installed. With over 2,000 window treatment choices and options, Sunburst is the ultimate source of window treatment products in in the US. Bringing Custom Window Treatments to Southern California In 1995, Sunburst expanded to Southern California so that Californians would have the opportunity to experience the quality and elegance of plantation shutters.
