Farewell Traditional Window Treatments For Entry Door Sidelights In Tampa, FL!11/24/2015Eric Ramsey Your front door is one of the first things a guest notices about your Tampa house as they’re knocking. Glass sidelights enhance the charm of the front door. At the same time, they lessen your privacy. That’s why window coverings are an excellent option for the sidelights on your entry door. Many Floridian homeowners installed outdated window treatments for sidelights, like shades and blinds. Yet there’s a more modern option: entry door sidelight shutters. Entry Door Sidelight Blinds & Shades Blinds, shades, and other old fashioned window treatments may be the first window coverings that come to mind when you consider sidelights. They’re available in home improvement stores in sizes close to those of your entry door sidelights. And youhave a grasp on how to mount them and open and close them. However blinds and shades for sidelights include a handful of issues you should consider before going shopping for them. First, they are known to sway whenever the door is open or shut, when the wind bounces the strips against the glass. This leads to irritating noise. One way to fix that is to tie them down at the bottom. But this can potentially change the appearance and have little effect on reducing the noise. Second, blinds and shades offer privacy but come up short in temperature control. The fragile material does little to block the outside temperature - hot or cold. And third, shades and blinds don’t have the customized style that blows a guest away as they come through the main door. Plantation shutters do.
