August 29, 2016

As rake (or angled) windows are becoming more and more popular in contemporary home design, common window treatments like shades or curtains just don’t cut it anymore. You want a window covering that will highlight the uniqueness of your window, instead of masking it. For this reason and others which we’ll dive into, plantation shutters are our number one recommendation for any angled windows in your Salt Lake City home.

Custom-Made For Any Window Shape And Size

No window treatment available fits angled windows as seamlessly as do custom-made plantation shutters.Have triangle-shaped windows in your Salt Lake City home? Maybe your windows are slanted. Either way, Sunburst Shutters Salt Lake City can build shutters that seamlessly fit and complement your window’s unique shape. And unlike blinds or shades that obstruct your window behind a rectangular cover, shutters can truly bring out the character of your home’s architecture.

In addition to letting you keep the visual accent angled windows add to your home, plantation shutters also come with numerous benefits beyond their aesthetics.

Complete Control Of Your Space

Shutters aren’t just an excellent window treatment product based on their visual appeal. They’re also the most ideal product for giving you complete control over heat flow and light in your room. By quickly adjusting the louvers, plantation shutters can allow you to alter the amount of light that comes into your room.

When it comes to keeping your room at a preferable temperature, there’s no better choice than our Polywood® plantation shutters because they are constructed to provide energy-efficient insulation. When utilized properly, the Polywood Insulating System can block nearly 30 degrees of airflow, and is able to decrease heat transfer by up to 45%, so your home stays cozy, and your heating bills stay low.

For non-rectangular windows, solar-blocking window film is also an consideration since it is able to be cut to fit any window shape. Remember 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 like shutters to give you more privacy and give style to your windows.

The Value Aspect

Like we mentioned before, plantation shutters are incredibly effective at containing heat flow and increasing your energy efficiency while decreasing your heating bills, but that’s not the only way you can benefit from your window investment. Given the proper care, the shutters on your angled windows can last decades, whereas other window treatments would need regular replacement after a few short years.

When it’s finally time to transition from your home and put it up for sale, plantation shutters are a notable perk for possible buyers in Salt Lake City. Additionally, the charm they add to your angled windows can improve walkthrough appeal, just like new appliances.
