Does your home have sidelights? The terms sidelights or sidelites aren’t as common as windows and doors, but many people have homes with sidelights and they may not even know it. In this article, we’ll talk about what sidelights are, how your home’s sidelights can impact the curb appeal and staging of your home and why it’s important to keep your sidelights in good condition to maintain the value of your home.
Sidelights are the windows, usually inoperable, that appear on either side of a doorway. Usually, sidelights appear near front or rear exterior doors, however, sidelights can appear on any door inside or outside the house.
Here are some of the unique benefits of Sidelights:
Sidelights don’t last forever. In fact, your home’s sidelights may get more wear and tear than other windows of your house.
