August 29, 2016

As angled (or rake) windows are becoming increasingly popular in contemporary interior design, regular window treatments such as drapes or blinds may not cut it anymore. You want a window covering that can accentuate the unique shape of your window, instead of obstructing it. For this reason and many more, plantation shutters are your best option for the angled windows in your Kingsport home.

Custom-Made For Any Window Shape And Size

No window treatment on the market can fit angled windows as seamlessly as do custom-built plantation shutters.Do you have triangular windows in your Kingsport home? Maybe they’re slanted. Either way, Sunburst Shutters Kingsport can build shutters that seamlessly fit and accentuate your window’s unique character. And unlike blinds or shades that hide your window behind a rectangular cover, shutters can truly bring out the character of your home’s architecture.

Along with letting you keep the visual accent angled windows add to your home, plantation shutters also offer numerous benefits beyond their looks.

Shutters aren’t just a great window treatment choice based on their aesthetics. Shutters are also the most ideal treatment for giving you utmost control over the amount of light and heat in your home. With a quick adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to alter the amount of light that enters into your home.

When it comes to keeping your home at a desirable temperature, there’s no product better than Polywood® plantation shutters because they are designed for maximum insulation benefits. When managed correctly, the Polywood Insulating System blocks close to 30 degrees of airflow, and is able to lower heat transfer by nearly half, so your house stays the perfect temperature, and your AC bills stay low.

For angled windows, ultraviolet-blocking window film is also an consideration since it can be cut to fit any window shape. Remember though that window film doesn’t do a lot in the way of allowing you to have visual control of the room, and we recommend pairing them with a secondary window treatment such as shutters to protect your privacy and give style to your house.

The Money Aspect

Like we mentioned above, plantation shutters are proven effective at home insulation as well as increasing your energy efficiency while decreasing your heating bills, but that’s not the only way you can collect on your window investment. When maintained properly, the shutters on your rake windows can last decades, whereas other window treatments might need regular replacement after a few short years.

When it comes time to transition from your home and put it up for sale, plantation shutters are a notable selling point for potential buyers in Kingsport. Additionally, the character they give your rake windows can improve walkthrough appeal, similar to new appliances.
