Sidelight Window Treatments In Philadelphia

Sidelights are the tall, slender windows on either side of your front door. They let light into your entrance, give you a front porch view, and provide a delightful decorative element for your home. But when left bare, they can also create a full view into your home. Luckily, Sunburst offers the perfect answer with our custom-built sidelight window shutters in Philadelphia.

Front Door Sidelight Window Shutters Give You More Privacy

If a stranger lingers at on your front step, you don't want them looking into your house through a bare window or translucent curtain. When you use entry door sidelight window shutters, you are able to entirely obscure the view right into your home's interior, preserving your privacy. Of course, if you want to look outside, an effortless tilt of the louvers will let you see the outdoors.

Polywood® Shutters Provide Extraordinary Energy Savings

It's readily apparent that an open door could lead to energy loss, but you may not realize the amount of heat that can transfer through your windows. Sidelight window shutters will help prevent heat loss. Our Polywood® plantation shutters are so adept at keeping the interior air in your home that they even qualify for an energy tax credit too!

Plantation Shutters For Sidelight Windows Are Better For Households With Children

When a guest drives up the driveway, your children and pets are likely scampering to your front door to peek out the sidelights and check who has come. If you have flimsy blinds, they'll probably get jostled and maybe bent. Other window coverings can be pushed out of the way, resulting in little handprints or pawprints on the pane. If you have plantation shutters for sidelight windows in Philadelphia, these problems won't occur. Rather, you'll have a sturdy, reliable solution that holds up well to boisterous young ones. And they still allow for a view out-of-doors when you open the louvers.

Sidelight Window Shutters In Philadelphia Fit All Shapes And Sizes Of Windows

Shopping for blinds, shades, or drapes that fit correctly on your sidelight windows is difficult. Sidelights typically don't follow standard sizing and may be slim or the same width as the door. A customized window treatment is your best answer, and that's precisely what you'll get with sidelight window shutters in Philadelphia by Sunburst. Our multipurpose solutions are always made to accommodate the precise dimensions of any window.

Enjoy A Stylish, Put Together Look For Your Entryway

When you match your sidelights to your door, your home will boast a uniform and beautiful entrance. Fortunately, our sidelight window interior shutters come in various paint and stain colors to seamlessly harmonize with your particular interior.

There’s Always Space For Sidelight Window Shutters

Some foyers may not have as much room around sidelights. If that is the situation in your home, using a hanging treatment may not fit. Fortunately, our sidelight window shutters are installed over the frame, so they remain operational and appear gorgeous despite the surrounding space.


Our Sidelight Window Shutters Stay Still No Matter What

One of the great things about sidelight window shutters is that you don’t have to wonder about them shifting, swaying, or slamming against the glass. They always stay fixed in place. On the other hand, drapes, shades, and blinds can be sucked into the vacuum effect that occurs when you open the door. They will frequently sway, shake, and may even get trapped in the door.
