Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to Miami Sunburst Shutters was founded in the early '70s in Phoenix, AZ, by people who believed they could make a better shutter than any other on the market. The ambition to be the best shutter company has transformed every aspect of the window treatment industry. Sunburst provided an in-home consultation where design professionals brought samples into a customer’s home to show them the steps in choosing the best window treatment product. In addition, Sunburst set out to hire sales staff that were well-mannered and friendly – and, at the same time, knowledgeable and helpful. Homeowners across the US fell in love with Sunburst Shutters at first sight. In the '70s, draperies and blinds were the standard window treatments in most homes. That’s when Sunburst Shutters gave consumers a more enduring and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters. Originally, the company offered wood shutters exclusively. But it was quickly apparent that Sunburst should craft the ultimate shutter – one that provides premium energy efficiency, and looks as exquisite 20 years from now as the day you bought it. After much research, sampling, and testing, Sunburst revealed its Polywood Shutters. In 2008, Sunburst Shutters expanded its collection into blinds, shades, draperies, and window film – and changed its name to Sunburst Shutters & Window Fashions. Now, Sunburst Shutters & Window Fashions offers any treatment for any size or shape of window – all custom-built and professionally installed. With over 2,000 window treatment choices and options, Sunburst is the absolute source of window treatment products in in the US. Bringing Custom Window Treatments to Miami In 1978, Sunburst expanded to Miami so that Floridians would have the opportunity to experience the quality and beauty of plantation shutters.
