Las Vegas Entryway & Sidelight Shutters

Las Vegas front door shutters


The long, skinny windows on the sides of your entry door are known as sidelights. And while they can let light into your foyer, let you see outside onto your front porch, and frame your home beautifully, it’s not a fantastic idea to leave them uncovered.

What is a fantastic idea is to install plantation shutters on your Las Vegas home’s sidelight windows.

Shutters Pair Best with Entry Door Sidelights

No window covering works better for sidelight windows than plantation shutters. Just take a look at the perks they’ll give your home.

Shutters Offer More Privacy

If a door to door salesman or stranger is ringing your doorbell, the last thing you want them to be able to do is look through a thin drape or between your blinds. With sidelight shutters, you can completely block out the view from outside, keeping your privacy intact. Simply adjust the louvers and your home is yours again!

Shutters Keep Your Home Comfortable

You might have a family member who leaves the door open from time to time, making your HVAC system work harder. But you might forget exactly how much heat can come through your windows. Polywood® plantation shutters are the industry’s most energy-efficient window treatment – and they’re up to 1600% more energy efficient than typical blinds! 

Shutters Are Resilient & Better for Families

If you have kids or pets in your home, you can expect them to look out of the sidelights if they [see|hear]57] you get home. A set of blinds can easily be destroyed by an excited pet, and you probably don’t want your shades pulled to the side so your window can get covered in handprints from the little ones. Sidelight shutters can avoid all of these problems, since they’re sturdy enough to withstand even the rowdiest use, and the kids can look all they want without having to touch the window pane.

Shutters Are Easier to Get the Size You Need

Sidelights are all different. Some are shorter than the door, others are the same size as the door, and some may not even be rectangular. So shopping for a set of shades or drapes that perfectly matches the length of your windows could be a pain. Plantation shutters on the other hand are custom-built to your exact specifications, guaranteeing you a perfect fit without the headache.

Shutters Look Better In Your Foyer

Few things make a better impression in your entryway than matching your sidelights to your door. With a variety of paints and stains available, we can seamlessly color match to your door style. And nothing compares to the handcrafted, timeless look of shutters in your foyer. Whereas some window coverings can look chintzy or cheap, shutters guarantee timeless style.

Shutters Can Go On Any Entryway Windows

Blinds, shades, and drapes all need a certain amount of room to put in. If your entryway is cramped or you don’t have a certain amount of space on either side of your sidelights, you might not be able to put anything up. But shutters can go on any window, guaranteed.

Shutters Won’t Move Unless You Want Them To

When your door opens, it creates a vacuum that can make your blinds or shades rattle, sway or even get caught in the door itself. Shutters stay exactly where they’re supposed to: on your window at all times.
