The Window Treatment For Entry Door Sidelights: Sidelight Shutters in Phoenix We commonly get this question after the consultation, as we’re ready to leave: “How can I cover these narrow windows next to my door?” And our answer? “Let’s install sidelight shutters!" Arizonians were bored with the rod-pocket sheers over the sidelight window, covering up the view and the light streaming in. Sidelight windows were designed for allowing in light. So why would you block it? Besides that, those drapes can go through a lot of wear and tear, with kids, pets, and guests walking in and out of your entry door on a regular basis. Despite hold-downs attached to the bottom, blinds ultimately rattle as the wind gusts when the door swings open. Your home’s best solution isn’t to cover your sidelight windows. It’s to highlight them with beautiful interior sidelight shutters in Phoenix. And the best part? Shutters are still tight to the doorframe as the panels are opened and closed. How Are Sidelight Shutters Installed? We begin by measuring the length and width of your windows. We mark where the door frame meets the glass. We can build the shutter frames to go over just the glass – or we can cover the full section with a large rail at the top/bottom to mask the wooden panel to the side of the door. In many cases, the panels can swing open and lay back against the wall next to the door. This gives you a full unobstructed view when the panels are opened and complete privacy when you close them. With our one-of-a-kind Polywood® shutters, we can craft your shutters to enhance your entry doors. Along the bottom is a larger rail that will mask the wall space the shutter is in front of. Because of this, the shutter louvers can start up in the glass – instead of covering the space underneath. We can set up Polywood shutters on wood, steel, or fiberglass doors. Don’t worry, because we’ll walk you through deciding on the frame style, louver size, paint and stain colors, and other options. Then, when we return to our shop, we’ll order your hand-fashioned plantation shutters with enough space for the louvers to function easily – and a look that truly enhances your entry door.
