The Perfect Window Treatment For Angled Windows In Fort Myers

August 29, 2016

As angled (or rake) windows are becoming more and more popular in contemporary home design, common window treatments like curtains or drapes may not cut it any longer. You want a window treatment that will highlight the uniqueness of your window, instead of obstructing it. For this reason and others which we’ll dive into, plantation shutters are your best option for any angled windows in your Fort Myers home.

Let’s get the facts on why your angled windows would be served best by shutters from Sunburst Shutters Fort Myers.

Custom-Built For Any Size And Shape Window

No window treatment available can fit angled windows as perfectly as do custom-made plantation shutters.Do you have triangle-shaped windows in your Fort Myers house? Perhaps they’re slanted. Either way, Sunburst Shutters Fort Myers can build shutters that seamlessly fit and emphasize your window’s unique character. And unlike drapes or curtains that obstruct your window behind a rectangular cover, shutters can truly show the character of your home’s architecture.

In addition to keeping the visual “pop” angled windows add to your house, plantation shutters also offer numerous benefits beyond their looks.

Complete Control Over Your Space

Shutters aren’t just an excellent window treatment product because of their aesthetics. They’re also the most effective product for giving you utmost control over light and temperature in your room. With a simple adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to alter how much light that comes into your room.

When it comes to keeping your space at a desirable temperature, there’s no product better than Sunburst’s Polywood® plantation shutters because they are built to provide energy-efficient insulation. When utilized properly, the Polywood Insulating System blocks nearly 30 degrees of airflow, and is able to reduce heat transfer by close to 45%, so your house stays comfortable, and your heating and cooling bills stay low.

For uniquely-shaped windows, solar-blocking window film is also an option because it is able to be custom cut to any shape. Don’t forget though that window film won’t offer much visual control of the space, and we recommend pairing them with a secondary window treatment such as shutters to allow for more privacy and give style to your home.

The Money Factor

Like we mentioned above, plantation shutters are incredibly effective at home insulation as well as increasing your energy efficiency while decreasing your heating bills, but there are additional ways you can save money from your window investment. When maintained properly, the shutters on your rake windows can last decades, where other window treatments would need regular replacement after a few short years.

When the day comes to move on from your home and list it for sale, plantation shutters are a eye-catching perk for potential buyers in Fort Myers. In addition, the charm they add to your rake windows can improve walkthrough appeal, just like new flooring.
