Goodbye Outdated Window Treatments For Entry Door Sidelights In Cleveland, Ohio!11/24/2015Nate Gromen Your entry door is one of the first things a guest notices about your Cleveland house when they walk up to ring the bell. Glass sidelights enhance the beauty of the front door. But, they reduce your privacy. Say hello to window shutters. These window fashions are the ideal option for the sidelights on your entry door. A share Cleveland homeowners went with outdated window treatments for sidelights, like blinds and shades. But there’s a more contemporary option: entry door sidelight shutters. Shades & Blinds For Entry Door Sidelights Blinds, shades, and other old fashioned window treatments may be the first window treatments you think of when you consider sidelights. They’re available in hardware stores in sizes that may not be an exact fit for your entry door sidelights. And you’re familiar with how to mount them and use them. Remember that sidelight shades and blinds have some considerations to keep in mind before buying them. First, they will sway whenever the door is open or shut, when the wind shakes the bars against the glass. This results in irritating noise. A fix is to tie them down at the bottom. But this might change the appearance and have little effect on reducing the noise. Second, blinds and shades give you privacy but aren’t suited for temperature control. The frail material does little to block the outside temperature - hot or cold. And third, neither shades nor blinds have the custom look that impresses your guests as they come through the entry door. Plantation shutters do. Entry Door Sidelight Shutters In Cleveland, Ohio Plantation shutters are the modernized window fashion you’ve been shopping for in Cleveland. Constructed from basswood or wood synthetic, shutters for entry door sidelights are installed on the frame of the door while giving the louvers enough room to tilt.

Just move the louvers by shifting the tilt rod to see more of the scenery and the sunshine.
