Your Window Treatment For Entry Door Sidelights: Sidelight Shutters in Detroit

We frequently have customers ask us when the consultation is over, as we’re ready to leave: “How can I cover these narrow windows next to my door?” And we say, “We can install sidelight shutters!"

Our customers were tired of the small metal drapery rod put on the top and bottom of a sidelight window, with a set of rod-pocket sheers in between, closing off the light and the view. Isn’t the view and light the very reason for sidelight windows in the first place? Besides that, those coverings can suffer daily wear and tear, with kids, pets, and guests walking in and out of your door on a daily basis.

Even with hold-downs along the bottom, blinds ultimately rattle as the wind catches them when the door opens and closes.

The best alternative isn’t to cover your sidelight windows. It’s to highlight them with charming interior sidelight shutters in Detroit. And best of all? Shutters stay nice and tight to the doorframe even when the panels are opened and closed.

How Are Sidelight Shutters Installed?

We begin by measuring the length and width of each window. Next, we record the place where the door frame and glass meet. We can build the shutter frames to cover just the glass – or the frame can go over the full section with a large rail at the top/bottom to obscure the panel next to the door door.

More often than not, the panels can swing open and sit against the wall on the sides of the door. This gives you a full unobstructed view when you open the panels and full privacy when they’re shut.

With our unique Polywood® shutters, we can design your shutters with a seamless look on your entry doors. A larger rail at the bottom will cover the wall space that’s behind the shutter. That way, the shutter louvers can start where the glass is – instead of covering the space below.

We can set up Polywood shutters on doors made of wood, steel, or fiberglass. Don’t worry, because we’ll walk you through choosing the frame style, louver size, paint and stain colors, and other options. When we go to our store, we’ll order your hand-fashioned plantation shutters with enough space for the louvers to move easily – and a look that genuinely beautifies your entry door.
