The Perfect Window Treatment For Angled Windows In Southern California

August 29, 2016

As angled (or rake) windows are becoming increasingly popular in contemporary home design, common window treatments like blinds or shades may not cut it anymore. You need a window covering that will complement the unique shape of your window, instead of masking it. For this reason and others which we’ll dive into, plantation shutters are our number one recommendation for any angled windows in your Southern California home.

Let’s see the details on how your angled windows would be served best by shutters from Sunburst Shutters Southern CA.

Custom-Constructed For Any Window Shape And Size

No window treatment available can fit angled windows as perfectly as do custom-built plantation shutters.Do you have triangle-shaped windows in your Southern California home? Perhaps your windows are trapezoidal. No matter the case, Sunburst Shutters Southern CA can build shutters that perfectly fit and accentuate your window’s unique character. And unlike blinds or shades that hide your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly bring out the individuality of your home’s architecture.

In addition to keeping the visual “pop” angled windows add to your home, plantation shutters also give you several benefits beyond their aesthetics.

Unrivaled Control Of Your Space

Shutters aren’t just a great window treatment product for their looks. Shutters are also the most effective treatment for giving you complete control over the amount of light and heat in your home. With a simple adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters can allow you to alter how much light that comes into your space.

When it’s a priority to keep your space at a preferable temperature, there’s no better choice than our Polywood® plantation shutters since they are designed to provide energy-efficient insulation. When managed properly, the Polywood Insulating System can block close to 30 degrees of airflow, and is able to reduce heat transfer by nearly half, meaning your house stays cozy, and your heating bills are reduced.

For angled windows, solar-blocking window film is also an option 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 room, and should usually be paired with another window treatment such as shutters to allow for more privacy and give style to your house.

The Money Factor

As mentioned above, plantation shutters are incredibly effective at containing heat flow and increasing your energy efficiency while decreasing your heating bills, but there are additional ways you can collect on your window investment. With proper maintenance, the shutters on your angled windows can last decades, where other window treatments might need regular replacement after a few short years.

When the day comes to transition from your house and list it for sale, plantation shutters are a great benefit for potential buyers in Southern California. Also, the character they add to your rake windows can improve walkthrough appeal, similar to new appliances.
