The Best Window Treatment For Angled Windows In New York City08/29/2016Dennis Rooney With rake (or angled) windows becoming increasingly popular in contemporary home design, run-of-the-mill window treatments such as drapes or blinds just don’t cut it any longer. You need a window covering that can 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 the angled windows in your New York City house. Let’s get the facts on how your angled windows would benefit the most from shutters from Sunburst Shutters New York. Custom-Constructed For Any Size And Shape Window No window treatment on the market can fit angled windows as perfectly as do custom-made plantation shutters. Have triangle-shaped windows in your New York City home? Perhaps they’re slanted. Either way, Sunburst Shutters New York can build shutters that seamlessly fit and accentuate your window’s unique shape. And unlike other window treatments that mask your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly bring out the character of your home’s architecture. In addition to keeping the visual “pop” angled windows add to your house, plantation shutters also come with several benefits beyond their looks. Unmatched Control Of Your Space Shutters aren’t just a fantastic window treatment choice because of their looks. They’re also the best product for giving you complete control over light and temperature in your space. With a quick adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to alter the amount of light that comes into your space. When it comes to keeping your room at a desirable temperature, there’s no choice other than Sunburst’s Polywood® plantation shutters since they are designed to provide energy-efficient insulation. When utilized properly, the Polywood Insulating System can block close to 30 degrees of airflow, and can reduce heat transfer by nearly half, so your house stays the perfect temperature, and your HVAC bills are reduced. For uniquely-shaped windows, ultraviolet-blocking window film is another option since it can be cut to fit any window shape. Don’t forget though that window film won’t offer much visual control of the space, and should usually be paired with a secondary window treatment like shutters to protect your privacy and add style to your windows. The Value Factor Like we mentioned before, plantation shutters are proven effective at containing heat flow and saving you money on your utilities, but that’s not the only way you can save money from your window investment. With proper maintenance, the shutters on your rake windows can last a lifetime, where other window treatments will likely need regular replacement after a few short years. When it’s finally time to transition from your home and put it on the market, plantation shutters are a great perk for potential buyers in New York City. Not to mention, the personality they give your angled windows can boost walkthrough appeal, similar to a classic hardwood floor. What's Your Angle?
