Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to Boise

Sunburst Shutters was started in the early '70s in Phoenix, AZ, by people who thought they could make a better shutter than any other in the US.

The objective to be the best shutter company has transformed every aspect of the window treatment industry. Sunburst started offering an in-home consultation where design specialists brought samples into a customer’s home to show them the steps 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 US fell in love with Sunburst Shutters at first sight.

In the '70s, draperies and blinds were the usual window treatments in most homes. That’s when Sunburst Shutters introduced customers to a more durable and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters

Originally, the company offered wood shutters exclusively. But it was quickly apparent that Sunburst should make the ultimate shutter – one that provides maximum energy efficiency, and looks as elegant 20 years from now as the day you purchased it. After much research, sampling, and testing, Sunburst revealed its Polywood Shutters

In 2008, Sunburst Shutters broadened its offerings 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-designed and professionally installed. With over 2,000 window treatment choices and options, Sunburst is the absolute source of window treatment products in in the US.
