The Perfect Window Treatment For Angled Windows In Virginia Beach

August 29, 2016

As rake (or angled) windows are becoming more popular in contemporary interior design, common window treatments like drapes or blinds may not cut it anymore. You want a window covering that can highlight the uniqueness of your window, instead of hiding it. For this reason and others which we’ll dive into, plantation shutters are our number one recommendation for any angled windows in your Virginia Beach home.

Let’s see the details on why your angled windows would benefit the most from shutters from Sunburst Shutters Virginia Beach.

Custom-Made For Any Size And Shape Window

No window treatment out there can fit angled windows as perfectly as do custom-constructed plantation shutters.Have triangular windows in your Virginia Beach home? Perhaps they’re slanted. Whatever your situation, Sunburst Shutters Virginia Beach can construct shutters that seamlessly fit and complement your window’s unique shape. And unlike blinds or shades that hide your window behind a rectangular cover, shutters can truly show the individuality of your home’s architecture.

In addition to letting you keep the visual accent angled windows add to your house, plantation shutters also offer numerous benefits beyond their looks.

Unmatched Control Over Your Space

Shutters aren’t just an excellent window treatment product based on their visual appeal. They’re also the best choice for giving you utmost control over the amount of light and heat in your room. By simply adjusting the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to manage how much light that comes into your space.

When you need to keep your home at a preferable temperature, there’s no better choice than our Polywood® plantation shutters since they are built for maximum insulation benefits. When managed properly, the Polywood Insulating System can block close to 30° of airflow, and can decrease heat transfer by up to 45%, which means your house stays comfortable, and your AC bills stay low.

For rake windows, UV-blocking window film is an additional consideration since it can be cut to fit any window shape. Don’t forget though that window film doesn’t do a lot in the way of giving you visual control of the area, and we recommend pairing them with another window treatment such as shutters to allow for more privacy and give style to your home.

The Value Factor

Like we mentioned before, plantation shutters are proven effective at insulating your home and 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 angled windows can last decades, where other window treatments might need eventual replacement after a short time.

When it’s finally time to move on from your home and list it for sale, plantation shutters are a great benefit for possible buyers in Virginia Beach. In addition, the character they give your angled windows can add tremendous walkthrough appeal, just like new flooring.
