The Best Window Treatment For Angled Windows In Boston

Holly Perron

With rake (or angled) windows becoming more popular in contemporary home design, run-of-the-mill window treatments like shades or curtains may not cut it anymore. You want a window treatment that will accentuate the unique shape of your window, instead of masking it. For this reason and many more, plantation shutters are our number one recommendation 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 your windows are 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 individuality of your home’s architecture.

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

Unrivaled Control Of Your Space

Shutters aren’t just a fantastic window covering choice for their visual appeal. They’re also the most ideal treatment 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 space.

When it comes to keeping your home at a comfortable temperature, there’s no choice other 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%, so 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. Remember though that window film won’t give you much 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 Aspect

Like we mentioned above, plantation shutters are incredibly effective at containing heat flow and saving you money on your utilities, but that’s not the only way you can save money from your window investment. With proper maintenance, the shutters on your angled windows can last a lifetime, while other window treatments would need eventual replacement after a few short years.

When it’s finally time to move on from your house and put it on the market, plantation shutters are a eye-catching benefit for possible buyers in Boston. Not to mention, the charm they add to your angled windows can improve walkthrough appeal, just like new appliances.
