Sidelight Curtains

Sidelight curtains are a quick and easy way to cover your sidelights. Just put one rod on top and one on the bottom and your all set to hang up your curtains.

Finding the right rod is not easy at all. Here are some issues you might encounter:

Size: Most curtain rods start at 28" which is great when you have an average window. But if your sidelights are ten, eight, or even six inches, this is definitely not what you need.

Mounting: Many sidelight windows have no mounting depth, so outside mount might be the way for you to go. Outside mount will also work if your rods are are just a bit wider than your windows.


We have an assortment of sidelight rods that come ready in a two-pack for you to choose from.
