Farewell Old Fashioned Window Treatments For Entry Door Sidelights In Southern California!11/24/2015Kimball Jones Your entry door is the first impression a guest has of your Southern California home when they land on the doormat. The sidelights on the sides enhance the elegance of the door. At the same time, they reduce your overall privacy. Say hello to window shutters. These window coverings are the ideal option for the sidelights on your entry door. A number of Southern California homeowners have opted for traditional window treatments for sidelights, like blinds or shades. But they may not have realized there’s a more stylish alternative: entry door sidelight shutters. Entry Door Sidelight Blinds & Shades Shades and blinds could be the first window coverings that come to mind when it comes to sidelights. They’re available in home improvement stores in sizes close to those of your entry door sidelights. And you already know how to set them up and operate them. Remember that shades and blinds for sidelights come with a few concerns to think about before going shopping for them. First, they will sway whenever the door is open or shut, when the wind shakes the strips against the glass. This leads to unwanted noise. A fix is to tie them down at the bottom. But this might change the style and may not reduce the noise. Second, shades and blinds provide privacy but are poor at temperature control. The thin material fails to insulate against the hot or cold outdoor conditions. And third, neither shades nor blinds have the personalized touch that wows a guest as they come through the front door.
