The Perfect Window Covering For Angled Windows In Detroit

August 29, 2016

As rake (or angled) windows are becoming more popular in contemporary interior design, common window treatments like blinds or shades just don’t cut it anymore. You deserve a window covering that will accentuate the uniqueness of your window, instead of masking it. For this reason and many more, plantation shutters are the perfect choice for the angled windows in your Detroit house.

Let’s take a closer look at how your angled windows would benefit the most from shutters from Sunburst Shutters Detroit.

Custom-Made For Any Size And Shape Window

No window treatment on the market fits angled windows as seamlessly as do custom-built plantation shutters.Do you have triangle-shaped windows in your Detroit home? Maybe your windows are slanted. No matter the case, Sunburst Shutters Detroit can construct shutters that perfectly fit and complement your window’s unique character. And unlike drapes or curtains that mask your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly bring out the uniqueness of your home’s architecture.

In addition to keeping the visual “pop” angled windows add to your home, plantation shutters also come with numerous benefits beyond their looks.

Unmatched Control Of Your Space

Shutters aren’t just a fantastic window covering option based on their visual appeal. Shutters are also the most effective treatment for giving you utmost control over light and temperature in your home. By simply adjusting the louvers, plantation shutters can allow you to change the amount of light that enters into your room.

When it’s a priority to keep your room at a comfortable temperature, there’s no better choice than our Polywood® plantation shutters since they are designed for maximum insulation benefits. When used properly, the Polywood Insulating System blocks close to 30° of airflow, and can reduce heat transfer by up to 45%, meaning your home stays comfortable, and your HVAC bills stay manageable.

For rake 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 offer much visual control of the space, and should usually be paired with a secondary window treatment such as shutters to give you more privacy and give style to your home.

The Money Component

As 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 collect on your window investment. When maintained properly, the shutters on your rake windows can last a lifetime, whereas other window treatments will likely need eventual replacement after just a couple of seasons.

When it’s finally time to transition from your home and put it on the market, plantation shutters are a notable benefit for possible buyers in Detroit. In addition, the character they add to your angled windows can improve walkthrough appeal, just like a classic hardwood floor.
