So Long Outdated Window Treatments For Entry Door Sidelights In San Antonio, TX!11/24/2015Antonio Meza Your front door is a key design element of your San Antonio home - and one that guests take note of when they land on the doormat. The glass sidelights on either side contribute to the charm of the front door. However, they diminish your overall privacy. This is where window treatments are the ideal solution for the entry door’s sidelights. Many San Antonio residents have opted for traditional window treatments for sidelights, including blinds and shades. But they may not have realized there’s a more fashionable option: entry door sidelight shutters. Blinds & Shades For Entry Door Sidelights Blinds and shades could be the first window coverings that come to mind when you consider sidelights. You can find them in hardware stores in sizes that approximately fit your entry door sidelights. And you already know how to install them and open and close them. However sidelight shades and blinds come with a few considerations to keep in mind before going shopping for them. First, they will sway any time the door is opened and closed, when the wind shakes the strips against the glass. This results in irritating noise. One solution is to tie them down at the bottom. But this would possibly change the appearance and do little to reduce the noise. Second, blinds and shades give you privacy but are poor at temperature control. The frail material fails to insulate against the hot or cold outdoor conditions. And third, shades and blinds don’t have the custom look that blows a guest away as they walk in through the main door. Plantation shutters do. Entry Door Sidelight Shutters In San Antonio, TX Plantation shutters are the modern window fashion you’ve been searching for in San Antonio. Constructed from hardwood or wood substitute, shutters for entry door sidelights are fixed to the door’s frame while giving the louvers enough room to tilt.

Easily tilt the louvers using a tilt rod to see more of the view and the light. And with Polywood® plantation shutters, the louvers deflect 30° of temperature and decrease airflow by up to 45%.
