So Long Old Fashioned Window Treatments For Entry Door Sidelights In Sacramento, CA!11/24/2015Curtis Orton The entry door is a key design element of your Sacramento home - and one that guests take note of as they’re knocking. Glass sidelights contribute to the beauty of the door. At the same time, they lessen your home’s privacy. This is where window treatments are a perfect choice for the sidelights on your entry door. Many Californian homeowners installed outdated window treatments for sidelights, such as shades and blinds. But they may not have realized there’s a more contemporary alternative: entry door sidelight shutters. Shades & Blinds For Entry Door Sidelights Blinds, shades, and other old fashioned window treatments might be the window treatments that come to mind when you consider sidelights. They’re sold in hardware stores in sizes close to those of your entry door sidelights. And youhave a grasp on how to set them up and use them. But blinds and shades for sidelights have some concerns to think about before purchasing them. First, they’re likely to sway whenever the door is open or shut, when the wind shakes the bars against the glass. This creates annoying noise. One way to fix that is to tie them down at the bottom. But this might change the style and have little effect on reducing the noise. Second, these window treatments provide privacy but come up short in temperature control. The frail material is not effective at blocking the outside temperature - hot or cold. And third, neither shades nor blinds have the custom look that wows a guest as they enter through the entry door. Plantation shutters do.
