Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to Tampa Sunburst Shutters was founded in the early '70s in Phoenix, AZ, by people who knew they could make a better shutter than any other in the US. The ambition to be the best shutter company has turned every aspect of the window treatment business on its head. Sunburst started offering an in-home consultation where design experts brought samples into a customer’s residence to walk them through picking the best window treatment product. In addition, Sunburst set out to hire sales staff that were respectful 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 usual window treatments in most homes. That’s when Sunburst Shutters introduced customers to a more enduring and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters. At the beginning, the company offered wood shutters exclusively. But it became evident fast that Sunburst should craft the ultimate shutter – one that provides utmost energy efficiency, and looks as exquisite 20 years from now as the day you bought it. After much research, sampling, and testing, Sunburst announced the creation of Polywood Shutters. In 2008, Sunburst Shutters grew its selection 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-fashioned and professionally installed. With 2,000+ window treatment choices and options, Sunburst is the ultimate source of window treatment products in the nation. Bringing Custom Window Treatments to Tampa In 1991, Sunburst expanded to Tampa so that Floridians would have the opportunity to experience the quality and elegance of plantation shutters.
