The Perfect Window Covering For Angled Windows In Kingsport08/29/2016Jacob Hayes With rake (or angled) windows becoming more popular in contemporary interior design, regular window treatments such as drapes or blinds just don’t 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. Let’s take a closer look at why your angled windows would benefit the most from shutters from Sunburst Shutters Kingsport. Custom-Built For Any Window Shape And Size No window treatment 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. No matter the case, Sunburst Shutters Kingsport can construct shutters that seamlessly fit and accentuate your window’s unique character. And unlike blinds or shades that obstruct your window behind a rectangular cover, shutters can truly show the character of your home’s architecture. Along with letting you keep the visual accent angled windows add to your home, plantation shutters also give you numerous benefits beyond their looks. Complete Control Of Your Space Shutters aren’t just a great window treatment choice for their aesthetics. Shutters are also the best 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 how much light that comes into your space. When you need to keep 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 up to 45%, so your house stays the perfect temperature, and your AC bills stay low. For angled windows, ultraviolet-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 area, and we recommend pairing them with a secondary window treatment such as shutters to give you more privacy and give style to your house. The Money Component 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 benefit from your window investment. When maintained properly, the shutters on your rake windows can last dozens of years, whereas other window treatments might need regular replacement after a short time. When it comes time to transition from your home and put it on the market, plantation shutters are a great benefit for potential buyers in Kingsport. Additionally, the character they give your rake windows can improve walkthrough appeal, similar to new appliances. Ready To Find The Right Angle?
