The Perfect Window Covering For Angled Windows In Austin08/29/2016Tyler Jorgensen As angled (or rake) windows are becoming more and more popular in contemporary home design, run-of-the-mill window treatments like curtains or drapes just don’t cut it anymore. You need a window covering that will complement the unique shape of your window, instead of obstructing it. For this reason and others which we’ll dive into, plantation shutters are the perfect choice for the angled windows in your Austin house. Let’s get the facts on how your angled windows would be served best by shutters from Sunburst Shutters Austin. Custom-Built For Any Window Shape And Size No window treatment out there can fit angled windows as perfectly as do custom-constructed plantation shutters. Have triangle-shaped windows in your Austin home? Maybe they’re slanted. Either way, Sunburst Shutters Austin can build shutters that perfectly fit and complement your window’s unique shape. And unlike blinds or shades that mask your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly show the individuality of your home’s architecture. In addition to letting you keep the visual “pop” angled windows add to your home, plantation shutters also offer numerous benefits beyond their looks. Unrivaled Control Of Your Space Shutters aren’t just a great window covering choice based on their visual appeal. Shutters are also the most effective product for giving you utmost control over the amount of light and heat in your home. With a quick adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters can allow you to manage how much light you let into your room. When you need to keep your space at a comfortable temperature, there’s no choice other than Polywood® plantation shutters since they are constructed for maximum insulation benefits. When utilized correctly, the Polywood Insulating System blocks up to 30° of airflow, and can decrease heat transfer by nearly half, meaning your home stays the perfect temperature, and your heating bills stay manageable. For rake windows, solar-blocking window film is another option because it is able to be custom cut to any shape. Remember though that window film won’t offer much visual control of the area, and we recommend pairing them with another window treatment such as shutters to give you more privacy and add style to your home. The Money Component Like we mentioned before, plantation shutters are incredibly effective at insulating your home and saving you money on your utilities, but there are additional ways you can benefit from your window investment. When maintained properly, the shutters on your angled windows can last decades, while other window treatments will likely need eventual replacement after just a couple of seasons. When it’s finally time to move on from your house and put it on the market, plantation shutters are a notable benefit for potential buyers in Austin. Not to mention, the character they give your rake windows can boost walkthrough appeal, similar to a classic hardwood floor. What's The Right Angle?
