August 29, 2016

With angled (or rake) windows getting increasingly popular in contemporary interior design, regular window treatments like curtains or drapes may not cut it anymore. You deserve a window treatment that will complement the unique shape 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 Houston house.

Let’s take a closer look at how your angled windows would be served best by shutters from Sunburst Shutters Houston.

Custom-Made For Any Size And Shape Window

No window treatment available fits angled windows as seamlessly as do custom-made plantation shutters.Do you have triangle-shaped windows in your Houston house? Maybe your windows are trapezoidal. Whatever your situation, Sunburst Shutters Houston can build shutters that seamlessly fit and emphasize your window’s unique shape. And unlike drapes or curtains that mask your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly display the character of your home’s architecture.

In addition to letting you keep the visual accent angled windows add to your home, plantation shutters also give you several benefits beyond their aesthetics.

Unmatched Control Of Your Space

Shutters aren’t just an excellent window treatment option because of their visual appeal. Shutters are also the best product for giving you utmost control over light and temperature in your space. By simply adjusting the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to change how much light you let into your space.

When it comes to keeping your home at a preferable temperature, there’s no product better than Sunburst’s Polywood® plantation shutters because they are built to provide energy-efficient insulation. When used properly, the Polywood Insulating System blocks up to 30 degrees of airflow, and can reduce heat transfer by close to 45%, so your home stays the perfect temperature, and your HVAC bills stay low.

For angled windows, UV-blocking window film is also an consideration because it can be cut to fit any window shape. Remember though that window film won’t give you much visual control of the space, and we recommend pairing them with another window treatment like shutters to give you more privacy and add style to your windows.

The Money Aspect

Like we mentioned above, plantation shutters are extremely effective at insulating your home and saving you money on your utilities, but that’s not the only way you can benefit from your window investment. Given the proper care, the shutters on your rake windows can last a lifetime, where other window treatments will likely need regular replacement after a few short years.

When the day comes to transition from your home and list it for sale, plantation shutters are a notable benefit for possible buyers in Houston. In addition, the character they give your rake windows can improve walkthrough appeal, just like a classic hardwood floor.
