The Perfect Window Covering For Angled Windows In Hartford

August 29, 2016

As rake (or angled) windows are getting more popular in contemporary home design, common window treatments like blinds or shades may not cut it anymore. You deserve a window covering that will highlight the uniqueness 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 how your angled windows would benefit the most from shutters from Sunburst Shutters Connecticut.

Custom-Made For Any Window Shape And Size

No window treatment available fits angled windows as superbly as do custom-made plantation shutters.Do you have triangle-shaped windows in your Hartford home? Maybe you have windows that are slanted. Whatever your situation, Sunburst Shutters Connecticut can construct shutters that seamlessly fit and accentuate your window’s unique configuration. And unlike drapes or curtains that obstruct your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly display the character of your home’s architecture.

Along with letting you keep the visual “pop” angled windows add to your home, plantation shutters also offer several benefits beyond their aesthetics.

Unmatched Control Over Your Space

Shutters aren’t just a great window treatment choice for their looks. Shutters are also the best treatment for giving you utmost control over the amount of light and heat in your room. With a simple adjustment of 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 space at a comfortable temperature, there’s no product better than Polywood® plantation shutters since they are designed for maximum insulation benefits. When used properly, the Polywood Insulating System blocks close to 30 degrees of airflow, and is able to reduce heat transfer by close to 45%, which means your house stays cozy, and your heating bills are reduced.

For uniquely-shaped windows, UV-blocking window film is another option because it is able to be custom cut to any shape. Keep in mind though that window film won’t offer much visual control of the room, and should usually be paired with another window treatment such as shutters to give you more privacy and give style to your windows.

The Value Factor

Like we mentioned before, plantation shutters are incredibly effective at home insulation as well as 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 rake windows can last dozens of years, while other window treatments might need eventual replacement after just a couple of seasons.

When it comes time to transition from your home and put it up for sale, plantation shutters are a notable benefit for potential buyers in Hartford. Also, the character they add to your angled windows can improve walkthrough appeal, similar to new appliances.
