The Best Window Covering For Angled Windows In Philadelphia

Holly Perron

As angled (or rake) windows are getting more popular in contemporary home design, run-of-the-mill window treatments like drapes or blinds may not cut it anymore. You want a window treatment that can highlight the unique shape of your window, instead of obstructing it. For this reason and many more, plantation shutters are our number one recommendation for the angled windows in your Philadelphia house.

Let’s take a closer look at how your angled windows would benefit the most from shutters from Sunburst Shutters Philadelphia.

Custom-Constructed For Any Window Shape And Size

No window treatment on the market can fit angled windows as superbly as do custom-constructed plantation shutters.

Have triangle-shaped windows in your Philadelphia house? Maybe they’re trapezoidal. No matter the case, Sunburst Shutters Philadelphia can create shutters that perfectly fit and complement your window’s unique configuration. And unlike drapes or curtains that obstruct your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly bring out the uniqueness of your home’s architecture.

In addition to keeping the visual accent angled windows add to your home, plantation shutters also give you numerous benefits beyond their looks.

Unmatched Control Over Your Space

Shutters aren’t just a great window treatment option because of their looks. Shutters are also the most effective product for giving you complete control over heat flow and light in your space. With a quick adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to change how much light you let into your room.

When it’s a priority to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, there’s no better choice than Polywood® plantation shutters since they are constructed to provide energy-efficient insulation. When used properly, the Polywood Insulating System blocks close to 30 degrees of airflow, and can decrease heat transfer by up to 45%, so your home stays comfortable, and your AC bills stay manageable.

For rake windows, solar-blocking window film is also an consideration since it can be custom cut to any shape. Don’t forget though that window film doesn’t do very much in the way of allowing you to have visual control of the space, and we recommend pairing them with a secondary window treatment like shutters to protect your privacy and add style to your home.

The Value Component

As mentioned above, plantation shutters are incredibly effective at containing heat flow 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 angled windows can last a lifetime, where other window treatments might need regular replacement after a short time.

When the time comes to move on from your house and list it for sale, plantation shutters are a great perk for potential buyers in Philadelphia. Additionally, the charm they give your rake windows can add tremendous walkthrough appeal, just like a classic hardwood floor.
