Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to Kingsport Sunburst Shutters was founded in the early '70s in Phoenix, AZ, by people who knew they could make a better shutter than any other in America. The vision to be the best shutter company has turned every aspect of the window treatment business on its head. Sunburst provided an in-home consultation where design experts brought samples into a customer’s house to walk them through 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, knowledgeable and helpful. Homeowners across America quickly fell in love with Sunburst Shutters. In the '70s, draperies and blinds were the standard window treatments in most homes. That’s when Sunburst Shutters showed clients a more enduring and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters. At first, the company offered wood shutters solely. But it was instantly obvious that Sunburst should craft the ultimate shutter – one that provides superior energy efficiency, and looks as beautiful 20 years from now as the day you bought it. After much research, sampling, and testing, Sunburst released its Polywood Shutters. In 2008, Sunburst Shutters expanded its selection 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 over 2,000 window treatment choices and options, Sunburst is the ultimate source of window treatment products in the nation. Bringing Custom Window Treatments to Kingsport In 2001, Sunburst expanded to Kingsport so that Tennesseans would have the chance to experience the quality and beauty of plantation shutters. Whether we’re strolling by Johnson City or Bristol, we love seeing our custom shutters around town.
