The Best Window Covering For Angled Windows In Tampa

August 29, 2016

As rake (or angled) windows are getting more popular in contemporary interior design, run-of-the-mill window treatments such as drapes or blinds just don’t cut it anymore. You deserve a window treatment that can accentuate the unique shape of your window, instead of obstructing it. For this reason and others which we’ll dive into, plantation shutters are our number one recommendation for any angled windows in your Tampa home.

Let’s get the facts on why your angled windows would be served best by shutters from Sunburst Shutters Tampa.

Custom-Built For Any Size And Shape Window

No window treatment out there fits angled windows as seamlessly as do custom-made plantation shutters.Do you have triangle-shaped windows in your Tampa home? Maybe they’re trapezoidal. No matter the case, Sunburst Shutters Tampa can create shutters that perfectly fit and complement your window’s unique configuration. And unlike drapes or curtains that mask your window behind a rectangular cover, shutters can truly display the uniqueness of your home’s architecture.

Along with keeping the visual “pop” angled windows add to your house, plantation shutters also give you several benefits beyond their looks.

Unrivaled Control Over Your Space

Shutters aren’t just a fantastic window treatment option based on their visual appeal. They’re also the most effective treatment for giving you utmost control over light and temperature in your room. With a simple adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to change the amount of light you let into your room.

When it’s a priority to keep your home at a desirable temperature, there’s no product better than our Polywood® plantation shutters since they are constructed for maximum insulation benefits. When utilized correctly, the Polywood Insulating System can block close to 30° of airflow, and can reduce heat transfer by close to 45%, meaning your home stays the perfect temperature, and your AC bills stay low.

For non-rectangular windows, solar-blocking window film is an additional consideration since it can be cut to fit any window shape. Keep in mind though that window film doesn’t do very much in the way of allowing you to have visual control of the room, and should usually be paired with a secondary window treatment like shutters to give you more privacy and give style to your windows.

The Money Aspect

As mentioned above, plantation shutters are extremely effective at containing heat flow and saving you money on your utilities, but that’s not the only way you can save money from your window investment. When maintained properly, the shutters on your angled windows can last decades, whereas other window treatments would need eventual replacement after a short time.

When it comes time to transition from your home and put it up for sale, plantation shutters are a great selling point for possible buyers in Tampa. In addition, the character they give your rake windows can improve walkthrough appeal, similar to a classic hardwood floor.
