With angled (or rake) windows becoming more and more popular in contemporary home design, regular window treatments like curtains or drapes just don’t cut it any longer. You deserve a window treatment that will highlight the uniqueness of your window, instead of hiding it. For this reason and others which we’ll dive into, plantation shutters are your best option for the angled windows in your Southern California house.

No window treatment out there can fit angled windows as superbly as do custom-built plantation shutters.

Do you have triangle-shaped windows in your Southern California house? Maybe your windows are slanted. Whatever your situation, Sunburst Shutters Southern CA can create shutters that perfectly fit and accentuate your window’s unique configuration. And unlike drapes or curtains that hide your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly show the character of your home’s architecture.

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

Unmatched Control Over Your Space

Shutters aren’t just a great window treatment choice for their looks. Shutters are also the best choice for giving you utmost control over light and temperature in your space. With a simple adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to alter the amount of light you let into your home.

When you need to keep your room at a desirable temperature, there’s no better choice than our Polywood® plantation shutters since they are built to provide energy-efficient insulation. When managed properly, the Polywood Insulating System can block up to 30° of airflow, and is able to lower heat transfer by up to 45%, so your house stays the perfect temperature, and your HVAC bills stay manageable.

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 give you much visual control of the room, and should usually be paired with another window treatment like shutters to give you more privacy and give style to your home.

The Money Component

Like we mentioned before, plantation shutters are proven effective at home insulation as well as lowering your utility bills, but that’s not the only way you can benefit from your window investment. With proper maintenance, the shutters on your angled windows can last a lifetime, whereas other window treatments will likely need eventual replacement after a short time.

When the day comes to move on from your house and list it for sale, plantation shutters are a great perk for possible buyers in Southern California. In addition, the charm they give your angled windows can add tremendous walkthrough appeal, similar to new flooring.
