The Best Window Covering For Angled Windows In Charlotte

August 29, 2016

As rake (or angled) windows are becoming more popular in contemporary home design, common window treatments such as drapes or blinds just don’t cut it anymore. You want a window covering that will accentuate the unique shape of your window, instead of hiding it. For this reason and others which we’ll dive into, plantation shutters are your best option for any angled windows in your Charlotte home.

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

Custom-Built For Any Size And Shape Window

No window treatment fits angled windows as perfectly as do custom-made plantation shutters.Have triangular windows in your Charlotte house? Maybe they’re slanted. Whatever your situation, Sunburst Shutters Charlotte can construct shutters that seamlessly fit and accentuate your window’s unique character. And unlike other window treatments that obscure your window behind 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 offer several benefits beyond their looks.

Unmatched Control Of Your Space

Shutters aren’t just an excellent window covering option based on their aesthetics. Shutters are also the most effective product for giving you utmost control over heat flow and light in your room. With a quick adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to manage how much light you let into your home.

When you need to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, there’s no better choice than Sunburst’s Polywood® plantation shutters since they are constructed with energy efficiency in mind. When utilized correctly, the Polywood Insulating System can block nearly 30 degrees of airflow, and can lower heat transfer by up to 45%, meaning your house stays cozy, and your heating bills stay low.

For angled windows, solar-blocking window film is another option since it is able to be custom cut to any shape. Keep in mind though that window film doesn’t do very much in the way of giving you visual control of the space, and we recommend pairing them with a secondary window treatment such as shutters to protect your privacy and give style to your windows.

The Value Aspect

As mentioned above, plantation shutters are extremely effective at containing heat flow and lowering your utility bills, but that’s not the only way you can collect on your window investment. When maintained properly, the shutters on your angled windows can last dozens of years, where other window treatments will likely need regular replacement after just a couple of seasons.

When the time comes to move on from your house and put it up for sale, plantation shutters are a notable benefit for potential buyers in Charlotte. Additionally, the character they give your rake windows can improve walkthrough appeal, just like new flooring.
