The Perfect Window Treatment For Angled Windows In Boise

August 29, 2016

As rake (or angled) windows are getting increasingly popular in contemporary home design, run-of-the-mill window treatments like shades or curtains may not cut it anymore. You want a window treatment that can complement the uniqueness 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 Boise home.

Let’s take a closer look at why your angled windows would benefit the most from shutters from Sunburst Shutters & Window Fashions.

Custom-Built For Any Window Shape And Size

No window treatment out there fits angled windows as seamlessly as do custom-made plantation shutters.Do you have triangle-shaped windows in your Boise house? Perhaps you have windows that are trapezoidal. Either way, Sunburst Shutters & Window Fashions can create shutters that seamlessly fit and emphasize your window’s unique configuration. And unlike drapes or curtains that obscure your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly bring out the uniqueness 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 based on their aesthetics. They’re also the best product for giving you utmost control over light and temperature in your home. By effortlessly adjusting the louvers, plantation shutters can allow you to change how much light that enters into your home.

When it’s a priority to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, there’s no better choice than our Polywood® plantation shutters since they are designed for maximum insulation benefits. When managed properly, the Polywood Insulating System blocks nearly 30 degrees of airflow, and is able to reduce heat transfer by nearly half, so your home stays cozy, and your heating and cooling bills are reduced.

For angled windows, solar-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 area, and we recommend pairing them with a secondary window treatment like shutters to give you more privacy and add style to your home.

The Value Factor

Like we mentioned above, plantation shutters are incredibly effective at home insulation as well as lowering your utility bills, but there are additional ways you can collect on your window investment. With proper maintenance, the shutters on your rake windows can last dozens of years, while other window treatments will likely need regular replacement after a short time.

When the day comes to transition from your home and list it for sale, plantation shutters are a great selling point for possible buyers in Boise. Additionally, the charm they add to your angled windows can improve walkthrough appeal, similar to a classic hardwood floor.
