The Perfect Window Treatment For Angled Windows In Atlanta

August 29, 2016

As angled (or rake) windows are becoming more popular in contemporary interior design, common window treatments like blinds or shades just don’t cut it any longer. You want a window covering that will highlight the unique shape of your window, instead of obstructing it. For this reason and many more, plantation shutters are your best option for the angled windows in your Atlanta house.

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

Custom-Built For Any Window Shape And Size

No window treatment can fit angled windows as seamlessly as do custom-made plantation shutters.Have triangle-shaped windows in your Atlanta house? Perhaps you have windows that are slanted. No matter the case, Sunburst Shutters Atlanta can construct shutters that perfectly fit and complement your window’s unique character. And unlike blinds or shades that obscure your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly show the individuality of your home’s architecture.

In addition to letting you keep the visual “pop” angled windows add to your house, plantation shutters also come with numerous benefits beyond their aesthetics.

Unrivaled Control Of Your Space

Shutters aren’t just a great window treatment choice based on their visual appeal. They’re also the best choice for giving you complete control over the amount of light and heat in your space. By effortlessly adjusting the louvers, plantation shutters can allow you to change the amount of light that enters into your home.

When you need to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, there’s no product better than Sunburst’s Polywood® plantation shutters because they are constructed to provide energy-efficient insulation. When used correctly, the Polywood Insulating System blocks close to 30 degrees of airflow, and is able to decrease heat transfer by nearly half, meaning your house stays cozy, and your heating and cooling bills stay manageable.

For non-rectangular windows, UV-blocking window film is an additional consideration since it is able to be custom cut to any shape. Remember though that window film won’t offer much visual control of the room, and we recommend pairing them with a secondary window treatment like shutters to protect your privacy and add style to your home.

The Value Factor

As mentioned above, plantation shutters are proven effective at insulating your home and lowering your utility bills, but that’s not the only way you can collect on your window investment. With proper maintenance, the shutters on your rake windows can last decades, while other window treatments would need regular replacement after just a couple of seasons.

When the day comes to transition from your house and list it for sale, plantation shutters are a notable selling point for potential buyers in Atlanta. Additionally, the charm they add to your angled windows can boost walkthrough appeal, similar to a classic hardwood floor.
