August 29, 2016

With angled (or rake) windows getting more and more popular in contemporary home design, regular window treatments like curtains or drapes just don’t cut it anymore. You need a window covering that will highlight the uniqueness 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 Fort Lauderdale home.

Let’s take a closer look at why your angled windows would be served best by shutters from Sunburst Shutters Fort Lauderdale.

Custom-Made For Any Size And Shape Window

No window treatment fits angled windows as perfectly as do custom-constructed plantation shutters.Do you have triangle-shaped windows in your Fort Lauderdale house? Perhaps your windows are slanted. No matter the case, Sunburst Shutters Fort Lauderdale can build shutters that seamlessly fit and complement your window’s unique configuration. And unlike blinds or shades that hide your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly display the uniqueness of your home’s architecture.

In addition to letting you keep the visual accent angled windows add to your house, plantation shutters also offer several benefits beyond their looks.

Unmatched Control Of Your Space

Shutters aren’t just a fantastic window covering product because of their looks. Shutters are also the most effective product for giving you complete control over heat flow and light in your home. With a simple adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to change the amount of light that enters into your room.

When it’s a priority to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, there’s no choice other than Polywood® plantation shutters since they are designed with energy efficiency in mind. When managed correctly, the Polywood Insulating System blocks up to 30° of airflow, and can lower heat transfer by nearly half, which means your house stays comfortable, and your AC bills stay low.

For angled windows, solar-blocking window film is another option since 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 should usually be paired with a secondary window treatment like shutters to allow for more privacy and give style to your house.

The Money Factor

Like we mentioned above, plantation shutters are incredibly effective at home insulation as well as lowering your utility bills, but that’s not the only way you can benefit from your window investment. With proper maintenance, the shutters on your rake windows can last decades, whereas other window treatments might need regular replacement after a few short years.

When the day comes to move on from your house and put it on the market, plantation shutters are a eye-catching benefit for potential buyers in Fort Lauderdale. Also, the personality they give your rake windows can add tremendous walkthrough appeal, just like new appliances.
