Farewell Old Fashioned Window Treatments For Entry Door Sidelights In Minneapolis, MN!11/24/2015George Christ Your front door is one of the first things a guest notices about your Minneapolis house when they walk up to ring the bell. The sidelights on the sides add to the elegance of the door. However, they diminish your privacy. Say hello to window shutters. These window coverings are an excellent choice for the entry door’s sidelights. Many Minnesotan dwellers chose classic window treatments for sidelights, such as blinds or shades. Yet there’s a more fashionable option: entry door sidelight shutters. Entry Door Sidelight Blinds & Shades Blinds, shades, and other old fashioned window treatments could be the first window treatments you think of when it comes to sidelights. They’re available in home improvement stores in sizes close to those of your entry door sidelights. And you already know how to set them up and use them. However blinds and shades for sidelights come with a few issues you should consider before buying them. First, they are known to sway every time the door is opened and closed, when the wind bounces 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, 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 custom look that blows a guest away as they walk in through the front door. Plantation shutters do.
