The Best Window Covering For Angled Windows In Charlotte08/29/2016Neil Blackwelder As rake (or angled) windows are becoming increasingly popular in contemporary home design, common window treatments such as blinds or shades just don’t cut it anymore. You need a window treatment that will complement 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-Made For Any Size And Shape Window No window treatment on the market fits angled windows as superbly as do custom-built plantation shutters. Have triangular windows in your Charlotte house? Maybe they’re slanted. Whatever your situation, Sunburst Shutters Charlotte can build 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 give you several benefits beyond their looks. Unmatched Control Of Your Space Shutters aren’t just an excellent window covering choice for their aesthetics. Shutters are also the most effective product for giving you utmost control over heat flow and light in your home. With a quick adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to manage the amount of light you let into your home. When it comes to keeping your home at a comfortable temperature, there’s no choice other than Sunburst’s Polywood® plantation shutters since they are built with energy efficiency in mind. When utilized correctly, the Polywood Insulating System can block nearly 30 degrees of airflow, and can decrease heat transfer by nearly half, so your house stays cozy, and your heating bills stay low. For angled windows, solar-blocking window film is another option since it can be custom cut to any shape. Keep in mind though that window film doesn’t do a lot 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 Component 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 benefit from your window investment. When maintained properly, the shutters on your angled windows can last dozens of years, where other window treatments might 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 selling point for potential buyers in Charlotte. Additionally, the charm they give your rake windows can improve walkthrough appeal, just like new appliances. What's The Right Angle?
