So Long Traditional Window Treatments For Entry Door Sidelights In Cincinnati, OH!11/24/2015Lisa Renee Nieberding The entry door is the first impression a guest has of your Cincinnati home as they’re knocking. The glass sidelights on either side contribute to the elegance of the entry door. But, they take away from your privacy. This is where window treatments are the ideal solution for the entry door’s sidelights. Many Cincinnati residents chose traditional window treatments for sidelights, including shades and blinds. But there’s a more fashionable alternative: entry door sidelight shutters. Shades & Blinds For Entry Door Sidelights Blinds, shades, and other old fashioned window treatments may be the first window treatments you think of as options for sidelights. You can find them in home improvement stores in sizes close to those of your entry door sidelights. And youhave a grasp on how to install them and operate them. However sidelight shades and blinds have some issues you should consider before buying them. First, they’re likely to sway any time the door is opened and closed, when the wind shakes the slats against the glass. This results in annoying noise. One way to fix that is to tie them down at the bottom. But this can potentially change the look and do little to reduce the noise. Second, shades and blinds provide privacy but come up short in temperature control. The thin material does little to block the outside temperature - hot or cold. And third, blinds and shades don’t have the customized style that blows a guest away as they come through the main door. Plantation shutters do.
