The Best Window Covering For Angled Windows In Hartford08/29/2016Holly Perron With rake (or angled) windows becoming increasingly popular in contemporary home design, run-of-the-mill window treatments such as curtains or drapes just don’t cut it anymore. You want a window covering that can complement 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 Hartford house. Let’s see the details on why your angled windows would benefit the most from shutters from Sunburst Shutters Hartford. Custom-Made For Any Window Shape And Size No window treatment can fit angled windows as seamlessly as do custom-made plantation shutters. Do you have triangular windows in your Hartford home? Maybe your windows are slanted. Either way, Sunburst Shutters Hartford can build shutters that perfectly fit and complement your window’s unique character. And unlike blinds or shades that obstruct your window behind a rectangular cover, shutters can truly show the individuality of your home’s architecture. Along with letting you keep the visual “pop” angled windows add to your home, plantation shutters also come with numerous benefits beyond their aesthetics. Unmatched Control Over Your Space Shutters aren’t just a fantastic window covering product based on their visual appeal. They’re also the most effective product for giving you utmost control over heat flow and light in your space. By simply adjusting the louvers, plantation shutters can allow you to alter how much light you let into your home. When it’s a priority to keep your home at a preferable temperature, there’s no better choice than Polywood® plantation shutters because they are constructed with energy efficiency in mind. When used properly, the Polywood Insulating System blocks nearly 30 degrees of airflow, and is able to lower heat transfer by up to 45%, meaning your home stays cozy, and your HVAC bills are reduced. For uniquely-shaped windows, solar-blocking window film is also an consideration because it is able to be cut to fit any window shape. Remember though that window film won’t give you much visual control of the room, and we recommend pairing them with a secondary window treatment like shutters to give you more privacy and give style to your house. The Money Factor As mentioned above, plantation shutters are extremely effective at insulating your home and lowering your utility bills, but there are additional ways you can collect on your window investment. With proper maintenance, the shutters on your rake windows can last dozens of years, while other window treatments might need regular replacement after just a couple of seasons. When it comes time to move on from your house and put it on the market, plantation shutters are a eye-catching selling point for potential buyers in Hartford. Not to mention, the personality they give your angled windows can improve walkthrough appeal, similar to new flooring. Ready To Find Your Angle?
