August 29, 2016

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 the perfect choice for the angled windows in your San Diego home.

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 show 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.

Shutters aren’t just a fantastic window treatment product for their looks. They’re also the most effective treatment for giving you utmost control over heat flow and light in your home. With a quick adjustment of 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 constructed to provide energy-efficient insulation. When used properly, the Polywood Insulating System blocks close to 30° of airflow, and can lower heat transfer by up to 45%, meaning your house stays the perfect temperature, and your AC bills are reduced.

For rake 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 insulating your home and saving you money on your utilities, but there are additional ways you can save money from your window investment. With proper maintenance, the shutters on your angled windows can last dozens of years, while other window treatments will likely need regular replacement after a short time.

When the day comes to move on from your home and put it on the market, plantation shutters are a notable benefit for possible buyers in San Diego. Not to mention, the charm they add to your angled windows can boost walkthrough appeal, just like a classic hardwood floor.
