With rake (or angled) windows getting increasingly popular in contemporary home design, regular window treatments such as curtains or drapes just don’t cut it any longer. You need a window covering that will highlight the uniqueness of your window, instead of hiding it. For this reason and others which we’ll dive into, plantation shutters are the perfect choice for the angled windows in your St. George home.
Let’s take a closer look at why your angled windows would be served best by shutters from Sunburst Shutters St. George.
Custom-Constructed For Any Size And Shape Window
No window treatment on the market can fit angled windows as superbly as do custom-made plantation shutters.Have triangular windows in your St. George home? Perhaps you have windows that are trapezoidal. Either way, Sunburst Shutters St. George can build shutters that perfectly fit and complement your window’s unique configuration. And unlike blinds or shades that obscure your window behind a rectangular cover, shutters can truly show the uniqueness of your home’s architecture.
Along with letting you keep the visual accent angled windows add to your home, plantation shutters also come with several benefits beyond their aesthetics.
Unrivaled Control Over Your Space
Shutters aren’t just a great window treatment option for their aesthetics. They’re also the best treatment for giving you utmost control over the amount of light and heat in your home. With a simple adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to manage the amount of light that enters into your home.
When you need to keep your room at a desirable temperature, there’s no choice other than Polywood® plantation shutters because they are constructed to provide energy-efficient insulation. When managed correctly, the Polywood Insulating System blocks up to 30° of airflow, and can decrease heat transfer by up to 45%, so your home stays cozy, and your HVAC bills stay low.
For rake windows, UV-blocking window film is an additional option since it is able to be cut to fit any window shape. Keep in mind though that window film won’t offer much visual control of the space, and we recommend pairing them with a secondary window treatment like shutters to allow for more privacy and add style to your windows.
The Value Component
Like we mentioned above, plantation shutters are incredibly effective at insulating your home and increasing your energy efficiency while decreasing your heating bills, but that’s not the only way you can save money from your window investment. Given the proper care, the shutters on your rake windows can last a lifetime, while other window treatments would need eventual replacement after a short time.
When it comes time to transition from your home and list it for sale, plantation shutters are a notable benefit for potential buyers in St. George. In addition, the charm they add to your angled windows can improve walkthrough appeal, similar to a classic hardwood floor.
