Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to New York City Sunburst Shutters was started in the early '70s in Phoenix, AZ, by people who conceived that they could make a better shutter than any other in the industry. The ambition to be the best shutter company has turned every aspect of the window treatment business on its head. Sunburst started offering an in-home consultation where design specialists brought samples into a customer’s residence to guide them in picking the best window treatment product. With that in mind, Sunburst set out to hire sales staff that were well-mannered and friendly – and, at the same time, experienced and helpful. Homeowners across the nation fell in love with Sunburst Shutters fast. In the '70s, draperies and blinds were the common window treatments in most homes. That’s when Sunburst Shutters showed clients a more durable and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters. At first, the company offered wood shutters only. But it was quickly apparent that Sunburst should create the ultimate shutter – one that provides maximum energy efficiency, and looks as exquisite 20 years from now as the day you had it installed. After much research, sampling, and testing, Sunburst released its Polywood Shutters. In 2008, Sunburst Shutters expanded its collection into blinds, shades, draperies, and window film – and changed its name to Sunburst Shutters & Window Fashions. Now, Sunburst Shutters & Window Fashions offers any treatment for any size or shape of window – all custom-fashioned and professionally installed. With more than 2,000 window treatment choices and options, Sunburst is hands down the best source of window treatment products in America.
