Farewell Outdated Window Treatments For Entry Door Sidelights In Miami, FL!11/24/2015David White The entry door is one of the first things a guest notices about your Miami house when they walk up to ring the bell. The glass sidelights on either side add to the elegance of the entry door. At the same time, they reduce your privacy. That’s why window coverings are a perfect solution for the sidelights on your entry door. Many Miami residents installed outdated window treatments for sidelights, like blinds or shades. Yet there’s a more contemporary alternative: entry door sidelight shutters. Blinds & Shades For Entry Door Sidelights Blinds, shades, and other old fashioned window treatments could be the window treatments that come to mind when it comes to sidelights. They’re available in home improvement stores in sizes that may not be an exact fit for your entry door sidelights. And you already know how to mount them and operate them. Remember that shades and blinds for sidelights have some concerns to think about before going shopping for them. First, they’re likely to sway any time the door is used, when the wind bangs the bars against the glass. This results in unwanted noise. One way to fix that is to tie them down at the bottom. But this would possibly change the look and do little to reduce the noise. Second, blinds and shades provide privacy but come up short in temperature control. The fragile material is not effective at blocking the hot or cold outdoor conditions. And third, neither shades nor blinds have the personalized touch that wows a guest as they come through the entry door. Plantation shutters do.
