The Perfect Window Treatment For Angled Windows In Jacksonville08/29/2016Kevin McCormack With rake (or angled) windows becoming more popular in contemporary home design, run-of-the-mill window treatments like drapes or blinds may not cut it anymore. You need a window covering that will accentuate 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 Jacksonville home. Let’s see the details on how your angled windows would be served best by shutters from Sunburst Shutters Jacksonville. Custom-Constructed For Any Window Shape And Size No window treatment available can fit angled windows as superbly as do custom-made plantation shutters. Do you have triangle-shaped windows in your Jacksonville home? Perhaps your windows are trapezoidal. Either way, Sunburst Shutters Jacksonville can construct shutters that perfectly fit and accentuate your window’s unique character. And unlike blinds or shades that obstruct your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly show the uniqueness 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. Complete 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. By simply adjusting the louvers, plantation shutters can allow you to manage how much light that enters into your home. When it’s a priority to keep your home at a preferable temperature, there’s no better choice than Sunburst’s 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 and cooling bills are reduced. For angled windows, solar-blocking window film is an additional option because it is able to be cut to fit any window shape. Remember though that window film won’t offer much visual control of the space, and should usually be paired with another window treatment such as shutters to allow for more privacy and give style to your home. 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. When maintained properly, the shutters on your angled windows can last decades, where other window treatments might need regular replacement after a short time. When the day comes to transition from your house and list it for sale, plantation shutters are a great benefit for potential buyers in Jacksonville. Not to mention, the charm they add to your rake windows can improve walkthrough appeal, similar to new appliances. Ready To Find Your Angle?
