The Perfect Window Covering For Angled Windows In San Diego08/29/2016Kimball Jones As rake (or angled) windows are getting more and more popular in contemporary interior design, regular window treatments such as shades or curtains just don’t cut it anymore. You need a window covering that can complement the unique shape of your window, instead of obstructing it. For this reason and many more, plantation shutters are our number one recommendation for the angled windows in your San Diego home. Let’s take a closer look at why your angled windows would be served best by shutters from Sunburst Shutters San Diego. Custom-Built For Any Window Shape And Size No window treatment out there can fit angled windows as seamlessly as do custom-constructed plantation shutters. Do you have triangle-shaped windows in your San Diego house? Maybe you have windows that are trapezoidal. Either way, Sunburst Shutters San Diego can construct shutters that seamlessly fit and complement your window’s unique configuration. And unlike other window treatments that hide your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly bring out the character of your home’s architecture. In addition to keeping the visual accent angled windows add to your house, plantation shutters also give you several benefits beyond their looks. Unmatched Control Of Your Space Shutters aren’t just a fantastic window treatment product based on their looks. They’re also the most effective product for giving you utmost control over light and temperature in your home. By simply adjusting the louvers, plantation shutters can allow you to change how much light that enters into your room. When it’s a priority to keep your space at a comfortable temperature, there’s no choice other than Sunburst’s Polywood® plantation shutters since they are built to provide energy-efficient insulation. When used properly, the Polywood Insulating System blocks close to 30° of airflow, and can lower heat transfer by nearly half, so your house stays the perfect temperature, and your AC bills stay low. For non-rectangular windows, solar-blocking window film is also an consideration since it is able to be cut to fit any window shape. Don’t forget though that window film won’t offer much visual control of the space, and should usually be paired with a secondary window treatment like shutters to allow for more privacy and add style to your house. The Money Factor Like we mentioned before, plantation shutters are incredibly effective at home insulation as well as saving you money on your utilities, but there are additional ways you can save money from your window investment. When maintained properly, the shutters on your angled windows can last dozens of years, whereas other window treatments will likely need regular replacement after a few short years.
