The Perfect Window Covering For Angled Windows In San Antonio

August 29, 2016

As angled (or rake) windows are becoming increasingly popular in contemporary interior design, run-of-the-mill window treatments such as drapes or blinds may not cut it anymore. You need a window covering that will highlight the uniqueness of your window, instead of obstructing it. For this reason and many more, plantation shutters are our number one recommendation for any angled windows in your San Antonio home.

Let’s see the details on how your angled windows would benefit the most from shutters from Sunburst Shutters San Antonio.

Custom-Made For Any Size And Shape Window

No window treatment available fits angled windows as superbly as do custom-constructed plantation shutters.Have triangle-shaped windows in your San Antonio house? Maybe you have windows that are slanted. Whatever your situation, Sunburst Shutters San Antonio can construct shutters that perfectly fit and complement your window’s unique configuration. And unlike other window treatments that obscure your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly show the uniqueness of your home’s architecture.

Along with keeping the visual accent angled windows add to your house, plantation shutters also come with numerous benefits beyond their aesthetics.

Unmatched Control Over Your Space

Shutters aren’t just a fantastic window covering choice because of their visual appeal. Shutters are also the most ideal treatment for giving you utmost control over heat flow and light in your room. By effortlessly adjusting the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to change the amount of light that comes into your room.

When it comes to keeping your space at a preferable temperature, there’s no product better than Sunburst’s Polywood® plantation shutters since they are designed for maximum insulation benefits. When managed correctly, the Polywood Insulating System can block nearly 30° of airflow, and is able to lower heat transfer by nearly half, so your house stays comfortable, and your HVAC bills stay low.

For angled windows, solar-blocking window film is another consideration because it is able to be cut to fit any window shape. Remember though that window film won’t offer much visual control of the room, and we recommend pairing them with a secondary window treatment like shutters to allow for more privacy and give style to your home.

The Value Aspect

As mentioned before, plantation shutters are incredibly effective at home insulation as well as lowering your utility bills, but there are additional ways you can collect on your window investment. Given the proper care, the shutters on your rake windows can last decades, while other window treatments would need eventual replacement after a short time.

When the day comes to transition from your home and put it on the market, plantation shutters are a eye-catching selling point for potential buyers in San Antonio. In addition, the charm they give your angled windows can improve walkthrough appeal, similar to a classic hardwood floor.
