The Perfect Window Treatment For Angled Windows In Seattle

August 29, 2016

With rake (or angled) windows becoming increasingly popular in contemporary interior design, regular window treatments such as drapes or blinds may not cut it any longer. You want a window covering that can accentuate the unique shape of your window, instead of masking it. For this reason and many more, plantation shutters are the perfect choice for the angled windows in your Seattle house.

Let’s take a closer look at how your angled windows would be served best by shutters from Sunburst Shutters Washington.

Custom-Constructed For Any Window Shape And Size

No window treatment on the market can fit angled windows as perfectly as do custom-made plantation shutters.Have triangle-shaped windows in your Seattle house? Perhaps you have windows that are trapezoidal. No matter the case, Sunburst Shutters Washington can build shutters that seamlessly fit and accentuate your window’s unique shape. And unlike blinds or shades that obstruct your window behind a rectangular cover, shutters can truly bring out the character of your home’s architecture.

Along with letting you keep the visual accent angled windows add to your home, plantation shutters also give you several benefits beyond their looks.

Complete Control Over Your Space

Shutters aren’t just a fantastic window treatment choice based on their looks. Shutters are also the most effective choice for giving you utmost control over the amount of light and heat in your home. By simply adjusting the louvers, plantation shutters can allow you to manage the amount of light you let into your home.

When you need to keep your room at a comfortable temperature, there’s no product better than our Polywood® plantation shutters because they are built to provide energy-efficient insulation. When managed correctly, the Polywood Insulating System blocks nearly 30° of airflow, and is able to decrease heat transfer by nearly half, so your house stays the perfect temperature, and your heating bills stay manageable.

For non-rectangular windows, UV-blocking window film is an additional option since it is able to be cut to fit any window shape. Don’t forget though that window film won’t give you much visual control of the area, and should usually be paired with a secondary window treatment such as shutters to protect your privacy and add style to your home.

The Value Aspect

Like we mentioned above, plantation shutters are extremely effective at containing heat flow and saving you money on your utilities, but that’s not the only way you can collect on your window investment. With proper maintenance, the shutters on your angled windows can last dozens of years, while other window treatments would need eventual replacement after a short time.

When it’s finally time to transition from your house and list it for sale, plantation shutters are a great benefit for potential buyers in Seattle. In addition, the character they add to your angled windows can add tremendous walkthrough appeal, similar to new flooring.
