Goodbye Outdated Window Treatments For Entry Door Sidelights In Indianapolis, IN!11/24/2015Bill Burke Your entry door is the first impression a guest has of your Indianapolis home as they’re knocking. Glass sidelights add to the elegance of the door. However, they diminish your overall privacy. That’s why window treatments are the ideal solution for the sidelights on your entry door. A number of Hoosier dwellers went with traditional window treatments for sidelights, including blinds and shades. But there’s a more fashionable alternative: entry door sidelight shutters. Entry Door Sidelight Blinds & Shades Shades and blinds may be the first window treatments you think of when you consider sidelights. They’re sold in home improvement stores in sizes close to those of your entry door sidelights. And you already know how to install them and operate them. However sidelight blinds and shades come with a few issues you should consider before going shopping for them. First, they are known to sway any time the door is used, when the wind bangs the strips against the glass. This results in unwanted noise. One solution is to tie them down at the bottom. But this can potentially change the appearance and do little to reduce the noise. Second, shades and blinds offer privacy but are poor at temperature control. The fragile material fails to insulate against the external temperature - warm or chilly. And third, neither shades nor blinds have the custom look that blows a guest away as they enter through the entry door. Plantation shutters do.
