The Perfect Window Covering For Angled Windows In Miami

August 29, 2016

With angled (or rake) windows becoming increasingly popular in contemporary interior design, run-of-the-mill window treatments such as blinds or shades may not cut it anymore. You need a window covering that can accentuate the uniqueness of your window, instead of hiding it. For this reason and others which we’ll dive into, plantation shutters are the perfect choice for the angled windows in your Miami house.

Let’s get the facts on how your angled windows would benefit the most from shutters from Sunburst Shutters Miami.

Custom-Built For Any Size And Shape Window

No window treatment on the market fits angled windows as perfectly as do custom-built plantation shutters.Do you have triangle-shaped windows in your Miami house? Perhaps your windows are trapezoidal. No matter the case, Sunburst Shutters Miami can construct shutters that seamlessly fit and accentuate your window’s unique configuration. And unlike other window treatments that mask your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly display the uniqueness of your home’s architecture.

In addition to letting you keep the visual “pop” angled windows add to your home, plantation shutters also offer several benefits beyond their aesthetics.

Complete Control Of Your Space

Shutters aren’t just a fantastic window covering option for their visual appeal. They’re also the best product 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 you let into your space.

When you need to keep your space at a preferable temperature, there’s no choice other than Sunburst’s Polywood® plantation shutters because they are built to provide energy-efficient insulation. When utilized correctly, the Polywood Insulating System blocks up to 30° of airflow, and is able to reduce heat transfer by close to 45%, meaning your house stays cozy, and your AC bills stay manageable.

For uniquely-shaped windows, ultraviolet-blocking window film is another option since it is able to be custom cut to any shape. Remember though that window film won’t give you much visual control of the space, and we recommend pairing them with another window treatment like shutters to give you more privacy and give style to your windows.

The Money Component

As mentioned above, plantation shutters are extremely effective at insulating your home and increasing your energy efficiency while decreasing your heating bills, but that’s not the only way you can collect on your window investment. With proper maintenance, the shutters on your rake windows can last decades, while other window treatments will likely need regular replacement after just a couple of seasons.

When the time comes to move on from your house and put it on the market, plantation shutters are a notable benefit for potential buyers in Miami. Additionally, the character they give your rake windows can add tremendous walkthrough appeal, just like new appliances.
