The Best Window Treatment For Angled Windows In Boston

August 29, 2016

As angled (or rake) windows are becoming increasingly popular in contemporary home design, run-of-the-mill window treatments like shades or curtains may not cut it anymore. You deserve a window treatment that will complement the unique shape of your window, instead of obstructing it. For this reason and many more, plantation shutters are the perfect choice for any angled windows in your Boston home.

Let’s get the facts on how your angled windows would be served best by shutters from Sunburst Shutters Boston.

Custom-Constructed For Any Size And Shape Window

No window treatment out there fits angled windows as perfectly as do custom-constructed plantation shutters.Have triangle-shaped windows in your Boston home? Perhaps they’re trapezoidal. Whatever your situation, Sunburst Shutters Boston can construct shutters that seamlessly fit and accentuate your window’s unique character. And unlike drapes or curtains that obscure your window behind a rectangular cover, shutters can truly display the uniqueness of your home’s architecture.

Along with keeping the visual accent angled windows add to your home, plantation shutters also offer several benefits beyond their aesthetics.

Unrivaled Control Of Your Space

Shutters aren’t just a fantastic window covering option based on their visual appeal. They’re also the best product for giving you complete control over the amount of light and heat in your home. With a quick adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to change how much light that enters into your home.

When you need to keep your home at a desirable temperature, there’s no better choice than Polywood® plantation shutters since they are built for maximum insulation benefits. When managed properly, the Polywood Insulating System can block nearly 30 degrees of airflow, and is able to decrease heat transfer by close to 45%, meaning your house stays comfortable, and your AC bills stay manageable.

For rake windows, solar-blocking window film is an additional option because it can be cut to fit any window shape. Keep in mind though that window film doesn’t do much in the way of offering visual control of the room, and should usually be paired with another window treatment like shutters to give you more privacy and give style to your home.

The Money Component

Like we mentioned above, plantation shutters are incredibly effective at containing heat flow and lowering your utility bills, but that’s not the only way you can save money from your window investment. When maintained properly, the shutters on your angled windows can last a lifetime, whereas other window treatments would need eventual replacement after a short time.

When it’s finally time to move on from your house and put it on the market, plantation shutters are a eye-catching selling point for possible buyers in Boston. Also, the charm they add to your angled windows can improve walkthrough appeal, just like new flooring.
