The Best Window Treatment For Angled Windows In St. George08/29/2016Kasey Udy As rake (or angled) windows are getting more 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 our number one recommendation 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 perfectly as do custom-built plantation shutters. Have triangular windows in your St. George home? Perhaps you have windows that are trapezoidal. Either way, Sunburst Shutters St. George can construct shutters that perfectly fit and complement your window’s unique character. And unlike blinds or shades that obscure your window behind a rectangular cover, shutters can truly show the individuality 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 choice based on their aesthetics. They’re also the best product for giving you utmost control over the amount of light and heat in your room. With a simple adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to manage the amount of light that enters into your space. 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 nearly 30° of airflow, and can lower heat transfer by nearly half, meaning your home stays comfortable, and your HVAC bills stay low. For rake windows, UV-blocking window film is also an option since it is able to be cut to fit any window shape. Keep in mind though that window film doesn’t do much in the way of offering visual control of the room, 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 extremely effective at home insulation as well as 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, whereas 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 great benefit for potential buyers in St. George. In addition, the character they add to your angled windows can improve walkthrough appeal, similar to a classic hardwood floor. What's Your Angle?
