The Perfect Window Covering For Angled Windows In Detroit08/29/2016Steve Hill As rake (or angled) windows are becoming more popular in contemporary home design, common window treatments like blinds or shades just don’t cut it anymore. You want a window treatment that will accentuate the uniqueness of your window, instead of masking it. For this reason and many more, plantation shutters are our number one recommendation for the angled windows in your Detroit house. Let’s see the details on how your angled windows would be served best by 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 they’re slanted. Either way, Sunburst Shutters Detroit can build shutters that perfectly fit and complement your window’s unique configuration. And unlike other window treatments that mask your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly bring out the individuality 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 product for giving you utmost control over heat flow and light 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 desirable temperature, there’s no choice other than Sunburst’s 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%, so your home stays cozy, and your HVAC bills stay manageable. For rake windows, UV-blocking window film is also an consideration because it is able to be cut to fit any window shape. Keep in mind 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 protect your 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 benefit from 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 up for sale, plantation shutters are a great benefit for possible buyers in Detroit. In addition, the charm they add to your angled windows can improve walkthrough appeal, just like a classic hardwood floor. Ready To Find Your Angle?
