The Perfect Window Covering For Angled Windows In Indianapolis

August 29, 2016

With angled (or rake) windows getting more and more popular in contemporary home design, run-of-the-mill window treatments like drapes or blinds just don’t cut it any longer. You want a window treatment that will highlight the unique shape of your window, instead of masking it. For this reason and many more, plantation shutters are our number one recommendation for the angled windows in your Indianapolis home.

Let’s see the details on 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 perfectly as do custom-constructed plantation shutters.Have triangular windows in your Indianapolis home? Maybe your windows are slanted. No matter the case, Sunburst Shutters Indianapolis can build shutters that seamlessly fit and complement your window’s unique character. And unlike drapes or curtains that hide your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly bring out the individuality 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 fantastic window covering choice 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 can allow you to change the amount of light that comes into your room.

When you need to keep 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 nearly 30° of airflow, and is able to decrease heat transfer by close to 45%, so your house stays cozy, and your heating and cooling bills stay low.

For non-rectangular windows, ultraviolet-blocking window film is an additional consideration since it is able to be custom cut to any shape. Remember though that window film doesn’t do a lot in the way of giving you visual control of the room, 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 Aspect

As mentioned before, plantation shutters are incredibly 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 save money from your window investment. When maintained properly, the shutters on your angled windows can last decades, whereas 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 up for sale, plantation shutters are a notable selling point for possible buyers in Indianapolis. Additionally, the character they give your angled windows can improve walkthrough appeal, similar to new flooring.
