The Best Window Covering For Angled Windows In Tampa08/29/2016Eric Ramsey As rake (or angled) windows are getting more and more popular in contemporary interior design, common window treatments such as blinds or shades just don’t cut it anymore. You want a window treatment that can accentuate the unique shape of your window, instead of masking it. For this reason and others which we’ll dive into, plantation shutters are the perfect choice for any angled windows in your Tampa home. Let’s get the facts on how 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 offer several benefits beyond their looks. Complete Control Over Your Space Shutters aren’t just a fantastic window treatment option for their aesthetics. They’re also the most effective product 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 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 Sunburst’s Polywood® plantation shutters since they are built with energy efficiency in mind. 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 rake windows, solar-blocking window film is an additional consideration since it can be cut to fit any window shape. Remember 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 incredibly 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 dozens of years, while 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 notable 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. What's Your Angle?
