The Perfect Window Covering For Angled Windows In Indianapolis08/29/2016Bill Burke As rake (or angled) windows are getting more and more popular in contemporary home design, common window treatments like blinds or shades just don’t cut it any longer. You deserve a window treatment that will highlight the unique shape of your window, instead of obstructing it. For this reason and many more, plantation shutters are our number one recommendation for the angled windows in your Indianapolis home. Let’s take a closer look at how your angled windows would benefit the most from shutters from Sunburst Shutters Indianapolis. Custom-Built For Any Window Shape And Size No window treatment available can fit angled windows as superbly as do custom-constructed plantation shutters. Have triangular windows in your Indianapolis home? Maybe they’re slanted. No matter the case, Sunburst Shutters Indianapolis can build shutters that seamlessly fit and complement your window’s unique configuration. And unlike other window treatments that hide your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly bring out the uniqueness of your home’s architecture. Along with keeping the visual “pop” angled windows add to your house, plantation shutters also offer numerous benefits beyond their aesthetics. Unmatched Control Over Your Space Shutters aren’t just a great window covering option based on their visual appeal. They’re also the most effective choice for giving you complete control over the amount of light and heat in your room. With a quick adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to change the amount of light that enters into your room. When it comes to keeping your room at a preferable temperature, there’s no product better than Polywood® plantation shutters because they are designed to provide energy-efficient insulation. When managed properly, the Polywood Insulating System can block up to 30° of airflow, and is able to decrease heat transfer by close to 45%, so your house stays comfortable, and your heating bills stay low. For non-rectangular windows, ultraviolet-blocking window film is also an consideration since it is able to be custom cut to any shape. Keep in mind though that window film doesn’t do very much in the way of offering 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 Component As mentioned before, plantation shutters are incredibly effective at insulating your home and increasing your energy efficiency while decreasing your heating bills, but that’s not the only way you can save money from your window investment. With proper maintenance, the shutters on your angled windows can last decades, while other window treatments would need regular replacement after just a couple of seasons. When it comes time to transition from your home and put it on the market, plantation shutters are a notable selling point for possible buyers in Indianapolis. Additionally, the charm they give your angled windows can improve walkthrough appeal, similar to new flooring. What's Your Angle?
