The Best Window Covering For Angled Windows In Raleigh

August 29, 2016

With rake (or angled) windows becoming more popular in contemporary interior design, common window treatments such as drapes or blinds may not cut it any longer. You want a window covering that can highlight the unique shape of your window, instead of masking it. For this reason and many more, plantation shutters are our number one recommendation for the angled windows in your Raleigh house.

Let’s see the details on how your angled windows would be served best by shutters from Sunburst Shutters Raleigh.

Custom-Constructed For Any Size And Shape Window

No window treatment out there can fit angled windows as perfectly as do custom-made plantation shutters.Do you have triangular windows in your Raleigh home? Perhaps you have windows that are trapezoidal. Either way, Sunburst Shutters Raleigh can create shutters that seamlessly fit and complement your window’s unique character. And unlike blinds or shades that hide your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly show the uniqueness of your home’s architecture.

Along with keeping the visual accent angled windows add to your home, plantation shutters also give you numerous benefits beyond their looks.

Unmatched Control Of Your Space

Shutters aren’t just a fantastic window treatment choice because of their looks. Shutters are also the best product for giving you complete control over the amount of light and heat in your room. With a quick adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to change the amount of light you let into your room.

When it comes to keeping your room at a preferable temperature, there’s no choice other than Polywood® plantation shutters since they are designed for maximum insulation benefits. When utilized correctly, the Polywood Insulating System blocks nearly 30° of airflow, and is able to decrease heat transfer by up to 45%, so your house stays the perfect temperature, and your HVAC bills are reduced.

For rake windows, UV-blocking window film is an additional consideration because it can be custom cut to any shape. Keep in mind though that window film doesn’t do a lot in the way of giving you visual control of the room, and should usually be paired with a secondary window treatment such as shutters to give you more privacy and add style to your windows.

The Value Aspect

Like we mentioned above, plantation shutters are extremely effective at home insulation as well as saving you money on your utilities, but there are additional ways you can collect on your window investment. With proper maintenance, the shutters on your rake windows can last a lifetime, where other window treatments will likely need eventual replacement after just a couple of seasons.

When the day comes to move on from your home and list it for sale, plantation shutters are a notable selling point for potential buyers in Raleigh. Additionally, the charm they add to your angled windows can add tremendous walkthrough appeal, similar to a classic hardwood floor.
