The Best Window Treatment For Angled Windows In Houston

Cory Cryer

As angled (or rake) windows are getting more popular in contemporary interior design, regular window treatments like curtains or drapes may not cut it anymore. You want 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-Built 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 they’re trapezoidal. Whatever your situation, Sunburst Shutters Houston can build shutters that seamlessly fit and complement your window’s unique shape. And unlike other window treatments 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 offer several benefits beyond their aesthetics.

Unmatched Control Of Your Space

Shutters aren’t just an excellent window treatment choice because of their aesthetics. Shutters are also the best treatment for giving you utmost control over heat flow and light in your space. With a simple adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to change how much light you let into your space.

When you need to keep your space at a preferable temperature, there’s no product better than our Polywood® plantation shutters because they are built to provide energy-efficient insulation. When utilized properly, the Polywood Insulating System blocks nearly 30 degrees of airflow, and can reduce heat transfer by close to 45%, so your home stays the perfect temperature, and your HVAC bills are reduced.

For angled windows, ultraviolet-blocking window film is also an consideration because it can be cut to fit any window shape. Remember though that window film doesn’t do very much in the way of offering visual control of the room, and we recommend pairing them with another window treatment like shutters to protect your privacy and add style to your windows.

The Money Aspect

Like we mentioned above, plantation shutters are incredibly effective at insulating your home and lowering your utility bills, 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 selling point for possible buyers in Houston. In addition, the character they give your rake windows can improve walkthrough appeal, just like a classic hardwood floor.
