Sidelight Window Treatments In Chicago

Sidelights are the long, slender windows on either side of your front door. They brighten up your entry, give you a front porch view, and add a delightful decorative feature for your house. But when left uncovered, they can also allow for an unwanted view into your home. Thankfully, Sunburst offers the ideal solution with our custom-built sidelight window shutters in Chicago.

Entry Door Sidelight Window Shutters Give You A Higher Degree Of Privacy

As a stranger lingers at on your front step, you don't want them looking into your home through a sheer curtain or uncovered window. When you install entry door sidelight window shutters, you are able to completely block the view of your home's interior, keeping your privacy intact. Of course, if you need to look out, a simple tilt of the louvers will give you a view to the outdoors.

Polywood® Shutters Offer Exceptional Energy Savings

It's easy to see that an open door may cause energy loss, but you might not realize how much heat can transfer through your windows. Your sidelight window shutters will help block heat loss. Sunburst’s Polywood® plantation shutters are so good at keeping the interior temperature in your home that they even qualify for an energy tax credit too!

Interior Shutters For Sidelight Windows Are More Beneficial For Households With Children

When a visitor comes up your driveway, your kids and pets are probably rushing to the front door to look out the sidelights to see who is there. If you have flimsy blinds, they'll probably get knocked around and possibly bent. Other window coverings can be moved to the side, resulting in small pawprints or handprints on the glass. If you have plantation shutters for sidelight windows in Chicago, you won’t have these issues. Rather, you'll have a sturdy, reliable solution that holds up well to mischievous young ones. And they still give a look outdoors whenever you open the louvers.

Sidelight Window Shutters In Chicago Fit Windows Of Any Shape Or Size

Shopping for blinds, drapes, or shades that fit perfectly over sidelight windows is challenging. Sidelights usually don't follow standard sizing and may be narrow or as wide as the door. A custom-made window treatment is your best alternative, and that's exactly what you'll get with sidelight window shutters in Chicago from Sunburst. Our versatile solutions are always crafted to suit the specific measurements of any window.

Enjoy An Attractive, Put Together Look In Your Doorway

With sidelights matching your door, your house will boast a well-balanced and chic entrance. Fortunately, Sunburst’s sidelight window interior shutters are available in a wide assortment of paint and stain colors to appropriately harmonize with your unique interior.

You’ll Always Have Space For Sidelight Window Shutters

In some entryways, you might have little room around sidelights. If that sounds like your home, installing a hanging treatment may not work. Fortunately, our sidelight window shutters are installed over the frame, so they remain operational and look beautiful despite the surrounding space.


Our Sidelight Window Shutters Always Stay Secure

One of the best things about our sidelight window shutters is that you don’t have to wonder about them swaying, shifting or bumping against the window. They always stay fixed in place. In contrast, blinds, shades, and drapes can be caught up in the vacuum effect that occurs when you open the door. They will often swing, shake, and might also get shut in the door.
