So Long Traditional Window Treatments For Entry Door Sidelights In New Brunswick, NJ!11/24/2015Mike Horn Your front door is a key design element of your New Brunswick home - and one that guests take note of as they’re knocking. The sidelights on the sides contribute to the charm of the front door. But, they diminish your overall privacy. That’s why window fashions are a perfect solution for the sidelights on your entry door. Many New Brunswick homeowners went with outdated window treatments for sidelights, like blinds and shades. But there’s a more stylish option: entry door sidelight shutters. Shades & Blinds For Entry Door Sidelights Shades and blinds might be the window treatments that come to mind as options for sidelights. They’re sold in hardware stores in sizes that may not be an exact fit for your entry door sidelights. And you’re familiar with how to set them up and operate them. But sidelight blinds and shades have some issues you should consider before purchasing them. First, they will sway any time the door is used, when the wind bangs the strips against the glass. This results in unwanted noise. One solution is to tie them down at the bottom. But this can potentially change the appearance and have little effect on reducing the noise. Second, blinds and shades offer privacy but come up short in temperature control. The frail material does little to block the outside temperature - hot or cold. And third, neither shades nor blinds have the customized style that blows a guest away as they come through the entry door. Plantation shutters do. Entry Door Sidelight Shutters In New Brunswick, NJ Plantation shutters are the modern window treatment you’ve been looking for in New Brunswick. Built from hardwood or wood substitute, shutters for entry door sidelights are mounted on the door frame while giving the louvers enough room to tilt. This way, using the main door does not lead to any noise. Tilt the louvers closed, and plantation shutters offer total privacy and control over temperature. Just move the louvers by shifting the tilt rod to see more of the sunshine and the scenery. And with Polywood® plantation shutters, the louvers deflect 30° of temperature and reduce airflow by up to 45%. The elegance of plantation shutters for sidelights is more than energy savings. With a collection of louver sizes, frame styles, wood stains, and a paint matching program, you are finally able to enjoy the contemporary style you love.
