Goodbye Old Fashioned Window Treatments For Entry Door Sidelights In Jacksonville, FL!11/24/2015Kevin McCormack Your entry door is the first impression a guest has of your Jacksonville home as they’re knocking. Glass sidelights enhance the elegance of the front door. At the same time, they lessen your overall privacy. This is where window fashions are the ideal choice for the entry door’s sidelights. Many Jacksonville residents went with outdated window treatments for sidelights, like shades and blinds. But there’s a more fashionable alternative: entry door sidelight shutters. Blinds & Shades For Entry Door Sidelights Blinds and shades may be the first window treatments you think of as options for sidelights. You can find them in hardware stores in sizes close to those of your entry door sidelights. And you already know how to mount them and open and close them. However sidelight blinds and shades come with a few concerns to think about before purchasing them. First, they’re likely to sway every time the door is opened and closed, when the wind shakes the bars against the glass. This creates unwanted noise. A fix is to tie them down at the bottom. But this can potentially change the appearance and have little effect on reducing the noise. Second, these window treatments provide privacy but are poor at temperature control. The thin material does little to block the external temperature - warm or chilly. And third, neither shades nor blinds have the custom look that impresses your guests as they come through the front door. Plantation shutters do. Entry Door Sidelight Shutters In Jacksonville, FL Plantation shutters are the contemporary window treatment you’ve been shopping for in Jacksonville.
