The Perfect Window Covering For Angled Windows In San Antonio

Antonio Meza

With rake (or angled) windows becoming more 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-Built 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 build 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 bring out the individuality 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 option because of their aesthetics. Shutters are also the best product for giving you utmost control over heat flow and light in your room. With a simple adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to change the amount of light that enters into your room.

When you need to keep your space at a preferable temperature, there’s no product better than our Polywood® plantation shutters since they are designed for maximum insulation benefits. When managed correctly, the Polywood Insulating System can block up to 30° of airflow, and is able to lower heat transfer by up to 45%, meaning your house stays comfortable, and your HVAC bills are reduced.

For angled windows, solar-blocking window film is another consideration because it is able to be cut to fit any window shape. Keep in mind though that window film doesn’t do much in the way of giving you visual control of the area, and we recommend pairing them with a secondary window treatment like shutters to allow for more privacy and give style to your house.

The Value Component

As mentioned before, plantation shutters are extremely effective at insulating your home and saving you money on your utilities, 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, whereas other window treatments would need eventual replacement after a short time.

When the day comes to transition from your home and put it up for sale, plantation shutters are a eye-catching benefit 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.
