Goodbye Old Fashioned Window Treatments For Entry Door Sidelights In Boston, MA!11/24/2015Holly Perron Your front door is one of the first things a guest notices about your Boston house when they walk up to ring the bell. The glass sidelights on either side contribute to the charm of the front door. But, they lessen your home’s privacy. This is where window coverings are an excellent solution for the sidelights on your entry door. A share Boston homeowners went with outdated window treatments for sidelights, like shades and blinds. Yet there’s a more modern option: entry door sidelight shutters. Shades & Blinds For Entry Door Sidelights Blinds, shades, and other old fashioned window treatments could be the first window treatments you think of as options for sidelights. You can find them in home improvement stores in sizes that approximately fit your entry door sidelights. And you’re familiar with how to install them and operate them. However blinds and shades for sidelights have some concerns to think about before going shopping for them. First, they will sway every time the door is used, when the wind shakes the bars against the glass. This leads to irritating noise. One way to fix that is to tie them down at the bottom. But this would possibly change the style and may not reduce the noise. Second, these window treatments provide privacy but come up short in temperature control. The thin material is not effective at blocking the external temperature - warm or chilly. And third, shades and blinds don’t have the personalized touch that wows a guest as they come through the entry door. Plantation shutters do. Entry Door Sidelight Shutters In Boston, MA Plantation shutters are the contemporary window covering you’ve been shopping for in Boston. Crafted from basswood or wood substitute, shutters for entry door sidelights are fixed to the door’s frame while letting the louvers move freely.

Simply adjust the louvers with a tilt rod to bring in more of the scenery and the sunshine.
