Window Treatments for Side Light Windows

Window Shades

Honeycomb shades are a great idea for sidelight window treatment. These sidelight window shades come in bottom-up lifting system also have the cordless shade option. The tension control system eliminates pull cords from pooling on the floor or getting caught in doorjambs.

Faux wood and Wood Blinds

Faux wood blinds or wood blinds are another option for your sidelight windows.  On windows smaller than 12" wide will come with a center tilt option on the blind.  Also the window blinds be it faux wood or real wood blinds will not have the lifting option.  You can take the wood and faux wood blinds and attach at the bottom to keep it from moving around on the window when the door opens and closes.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are the Cadillac of window treatments and work great on sidelight windows.  You can have the shutters made from a composite material or real wood shutter.  Plantation shutters sit inside of a frame and are hinged to the frame.  When you want to clean the window you simply just open the door of the shutter.  You have options of louver sizes ranging from 1" to 3.5".  One consideration is the larger the louver size on the plantation shutter the further out the frame will stick out into the room.

Most of the time sidelights window blinds, shades or plantation shutters will need to be made custom because of the small size.  You can call any window treatment company in Wilmington NC or surrounding areas and they can come out and go over the different options in your home.  One thing I always suggest is get three estimates.  You will find big price diffrences sometimes when shopping for blind,shades and shutters in Wilmington NC.
