August 29, 2016

With rake (or angled) windows becoming more and more popular in contemporary home design, regular window treatments like curtains or drapes just don’t cut it anymore. You need a window treatment that will 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 Chicago home.

Custom-Built For Any Window Shape And Size

No window treatment out there can fit angled windows as seamlessly as do custom-built plantation shutters.Have triangle-shaped windows in your Chicago home? Maybe you have windows that are trapezoidal. No matter the case, Sunburst Shutters Chicago can build shutters that perfectly fit and complement your window’s unique shape. And unlike drapes or curtains that obscure your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly bring out the character of your home’s architecture.

Along with keeping the visual accent angled windows add to your home, plantation shutters also come with numerous benefits beyond their aesthetics.

Unmatched Control Of Your Space

Shutters aren’t just a fantastic window covering choice based on their looks. They’re also the most effective product for giving you utmost control over heat flow and light in your home. By effortlessly adjusting the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to manage how much light that comes into your space.

When you need to keep your home at a preferable temperature, there’s no choice other than our Polywood® plantation shutters since they are built for maximum insulation benefits. When managed properly, the Polywood Insulating System can block nearly 30 degrees of airflow, and is able to reduce heat transfer by close to 45%, so your house stays the perfect temperature, and your AC bills are reduced.

For non-rectangular windows, UV-blocking window film is also an consideration since it can be cut to fit any window shape. Remember though that window film won’t give you much visual control of the room, and we recommend pairing them with another window treatment such as shutters to protect your privacy and give style to your home.

The Money Aspect

Like we mentioned before, plantation shutters are extremely effective at insulating your home and saving you money on your utilities, but there are additional ways you can benefit from your window investment. With proper maintenance, the shutters on your angled windows can last decades, while other window treatments would need eventual replacement after a few short years.

When the time comes to move on from your home and list it for sale, plantation shutters are a great selling point for potential buyers in Chicago. Additionally, the charm they add to your rake windows can add tremendous walkthrough appeal, just like new flooring.
