Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to Destin Sunburst Shutters was founded in the early '70s in Phoenix, AZ, by people who conceived that they could make a better shutter than any other on the market. The vision 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 experts brought samples into a customer’s home to walk them through choosing the best window treatment product. With that in mind, Sunburst set out to hire sales staff that were courteous and friendly – and, at the same time, skilled and helpful. Homeowners across the US fell in love with Sunburst Shutters fast. In the '70s, draperies and blinds were the usual window treatments in most homes. That’s when Sunburst Shutters showed clients a longer lasting and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters. At the beginning, the company offered wood shutters solely. But it was quickly apparent that Sunburst should create the ultimate shutter – one that provides utmost energy efficiency, and looks as elegant 20 years from now as the day you bought it. After much research, sampling, and testing, Sunburst revealed its Polywood Shutters. In 2008, Sunburst Shutters grew 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-built 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 in the US. Bringing Custom Window Treatments to Destin In 2001, Sunburst expanded to Destin so that Floridians would have the chance to experience the quality and elegance of plantation shutters.
