Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to Boston

Sunburst Shutters was established in the early '70s in Phoenix, AZ, by people who thought they could make a better shutter than any other in the US.

The goal to be the best shutter company has transformed every aspect of the window treatment industry. Sunburst started offering an in-home consultation where design professionals brought samples into a customer’s house to walk them through picking the best window treatment product. On top of that, Sunburst set out to hire sales staff that were respectful and friendly – and, at the same time, skilled and helpful. Homeowners across the nation fell in love with Sunburst Shutters at first sight.

In the '70s, draperies and blinds were the usual window treatments in most homes. That’s when Sunburst Shutters gave consumers a more enduring and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters

Originally, the company offered wood shutters only. But it was instantly obvious that Sunburst should craft the ultimate shutter – one that provides utmost energy efficiency, and looks as exquisite 20 years from now as the day you bought it. After much research, sampling, and testing, Sunburst revealed its Polywood Shutters

In 2008, Sunburst Shutters extended its offerings 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-built and professionally installed. With over 2,000 window treatment choices and options, Sunburst is hands down the best source of window treatment products in America.
