Sidelight Window Treatments In Raleigh

Sidelights are the long, slender windows on the sides of your front door. They let light into your entrance, give you a front porch view, and incorporate a delightful decorative embellishment for your home. But when left uncovered, they can also give a full view into your interior. Luckily, Sunburst has the perfect solution with our custom-built sidelight window shutters in Raleigh.

Front Door Sidelight Window Shutters Give You Improved Privacy

If a stranger lingers at your door, you don't want them peeking into your home through an exposed window or sheer curtain. When you have entry door sidelight window shutters, you are able to entirely obscure the view right into the interior of your home, maintaining your privacy. Of course, should you need to look out, an effortless tilt of the louvers will give you a view to outside.

Polywood® Shutters Offer Extraordinary Energy Savings

It's easy to see that a cracked door could lead to energy loss, but you may not realize how much heat can transfer through your windows. Sidelight window shutters will help prevent heat loss. Sunburst’s Polywood® plantation shutters are so adept at keeping your interior air in your home that they can even earn you an energy tax credit too!

Interior Shutters For Sidelight Windows Are More Beneficial For Families

When a guest drives up the driveway, your kids and pets are likely running to your front door to peer through the sidelights to check who is there. If you have flimsy blinds, they'll probably get knocked around and maybe bent. Other treatments can be pushed out of the way, making way for tiny pawprints or handprints on your glass. If you have plantation shutters for sidelight windows in Raleigh, you won’t have these issues. Rather, you'll have a sturdy, reliable solution that holds up well to rambunctious little ones. And they still allow for a view out-of-doors whenever you adjust the louvers.

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

Shopping for blinds, shades, or drapes that fit properly on your sidelight windows is a challenge. Sidelights normally don't come in a standard size and may be slim or a similar width as the door. A custom-made solution is your best option, and that's precisely what you'll enjoy with sidelight window shutters in Raleigh by Sunburst. Our multi-functional products are always manufactured to fit the exact measurements of any window.

Enjoy A Fashionable, Uniform Look For Your Entryway

When you match your sidelights and door, your home will have the advantage of a well-balanced and stylish entrance. Luckily, Sunburst’s sidelight window interior shutters come in numerous stain and paint colors to appropriately blend in with your unique interior.

You’ll Always Have Room For Sidelight Window Shutters

In some foyers, you may have little space around sidelights. If that is the situation in your house, installing a hanging treatment might not be feasible. Fortunately, our sidelight window shutters are installed over the frame, so they can work and appear elegant no matter the surrounding space.


Our Sidelight Window Shutters Always Stay Secure

One of the best things about sidelight window shutters is that you never have to fret about them shifting, swaying, or slamming against the glass. They consistently stay secure. In contrast, drapes, shades, and blinds can be sucked into the vacuum effect that occurs when you use the door. They will often swing, shake, and may even get caught in the door.
