The Perfect Window Covering For Angled Windows In Fort Lauderdale08/29/2016Danielle Micich As rake (or angled) windows are 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-Built 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 they’re trapezoidal. No matter the case, Sunburst Shutters Fort Lauderdale can build shutters that seamlessly fit and emphasize your window’s unique configuration. And unlike blinds or shades that obstruct 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 great window covering product because of their looks. Shutters are also the most effective product for giving you complete control over light and temperature 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 better choice than Polywood® plantation shutters since they are designed for maximum insulation benefits. When managed correctly, the Polywood Insulating System blocks nearly 30° of airflow, and can decrease heat transfer by up to 45%, which means your house stays cozy, and your AC bills are reduced. For angled windows, solar-blocking window film is another option since it is able to be cut to fit any window shape. Keep in mind 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 home. The Money Factor Like we mentioned above, plantation shutters are extremely effective at home insulation as well as saving you money on your utilities, but that’s not the only way you can benefit from your window investment. When maintained properly, the shutters on your rake windows can last dozens of years, whereas other window treatments will likely need regular replacement after a short time. When the day comes to move on from your house and put it up for sale, plantation shutters are a eye-catching selling point for potential buyers in Fort Lauderdale. Also, the personality they give your rake windows can add tremendous walkthrough appeal, just like a classic hardwood floor. What's The Right Angle?
