The Best Window Covering For Angled Windows In San Jose08/29/2016Curtis Orton As angled (or rake) windows are getting increasingly popular in contemporary home design, run-of-the-mill window treatments such as shades or curtains just don’t cut it anymore. You deserve a window treatment that will highlight the uniqueness of your window, instead of obstructing it. For this reason and many more, plantation shutters are your best option for the angled windows in your San Jose house. Let’s get the facts on how your angled windows would benefit the most from shutters from Sunburst Shutters San Jose. Custom-Made For Any Size And Shape Window No window treatment available fits angled windows as superbly as do custom-built plantation shutters. Do you have triangular windows in your San Jose home? Maybe your windows are slanted. Either way, Sunburst Shutters San Jose can create shutters that perfectly fit and emphasize your window’s unique configuration. And unlike drapes or curtains that mask your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly bring out the uniqueness of your home’s architecture. Along with letting you keep the visual accent angled windows add to your home, plantation shutters also come with several benefits beyond their looks. Unrivaled Control Over Your Space Shutters aren’t just a fantastic window covering option because of their aesthetics. They’re also the best treatment for giving you utmost control over the amount of light and heat in your home. With a quick adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to manage how much light that enters into your space. When it comes to keeping your room at a comfortable temperature, there’s no better choice than Sunburst’s Polywood® plantation shutters because they are constructed to provide energy-efficient insulation. When managed properly, the Polywood Insulating System can block nearly 30 degrees of airflow, and is able to reduce heat transfer by nearly half, meaning your house stays cozy, and your AC bills stay manageable. For uniquely-shaped windows, solar-blocking window film is another consideration since it is able to be custom cut to any shape. Keep in mind though that window film doesn’t do a lot in the way of giving you visual control of the room, and we recommend pairing them with a secondary window treatment like shutters to give you more privacy and give style to your house. The Money Factor As mentioned before, plantation shutters are incredibly effective at insulating your home and lowering your utility bills, but that’s not the only way you can benefit from your window investment. With proper maintenance, the shutters on your rake windows can last a lifetime, where other window treatments will likely need eventual replacement after just a couple of seasons. When it comes time to move on from your house and list it for sale, plantation shutters are a eye-catching selling point for potential buyers in San Jose. In addition, the personality they add to your angled windows can boost walkthrough appeal, just like new flooring. Ready To Find The Right Angle?
