The Perfect Window Covering For Angled Windows In Washington DC

August 29, 2016

With rake (or angled) windows becoming more popular in contemporary home design, common window treatments such as curtains or drapes just don’t cut it anymore. You need a window covering that can complement the uniqueness of your window, instead of obstructing it. For this reason and many more, plantation shutters are our number one recommendation for any angled windows in your Washington DC home.

Let’s take a closer look at how your angled windows would benefit the most from shutters from Sunburst Shutters DC.

Custom-Built For Any Size And Shape Window

No window treatment on the market fits angled windows as superbly as do custom-made plantation shutters.Have triangular windows in your Washington DC home? Perhaps you have windows that are slanted. No matter the case, Sunburst Shutters DC can build shutters that seamlessly fit and accentuate your window’s unique shape. And unlike blinds or shades that hide your window behind a rectangular cover, shutters can truly show the character of your home’s architecture.

Along with keeping the visual “pop” angled windows add to your home, plantation shutters also come with several benefits beyond their aesthetics.

Unrivaled Control Over Your Space

Shutters aren’t just a fantastic window covering product based on their looks. Shutters are also the most ideal choice for giving you utmost control over heat flow and light in your home. With a simple adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to manage how much light you let into your space.

When it comes to keeping your home at a preferable temperature, there’s no choice other than Polywood® plantation shutters since they are constructed for maximum insulation benefits. When used correctly, the Polywood Insulating System can block nearly 30° of airflow, and can reduce heat transfer by close to 45%, meaning your house stays comfortable, and your heating bills stay low.

For angled windows, UV-blocking window film is an additional consideration 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 we recommend pairing them with a secondary window treatment such as shutters to allow for more privacy and add style to your home.

The Money Aspect

As mentioned above, plantation shutters are proven effective at insulating your home and lowering your utility bills, but there are additional ways you can save money from your window investment. When maintained properly, the shutters on your angled windows can last dozens of years, where other window treatments would need regular replacement after a short time.

When it comes time to transition from your house and put it up for sale, plantation shutters are a great benefit for possible buyers in Washington DC. In addition, the personality they add to your rake windows can improve walkthrough appeal, similar to new appliances.
