The Best Window Covering For Angled Windows In Chicago

Richard Rampton

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 accentuate the uniqueness of your window, instead of obstructing it. For this reason and many more, plantation shutters are the perfect choice for the angled windows in your Chicago home.

Let’s see the details on how your angled windows would be served best by shutters from Sunburst Shutters Chicago.

Custom-Made 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. Either way, Sunburst Shutters Chicago can construct shutters that perfectly fit and emphasize your window’s unique shape. And unlike other window treatments 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 option based on their looks. They’re also the most effective product for giving you utmost control over light and temperature in your room. With a simple adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to manage how much light that comes into your space.

When it comes to keeping your space at a preferable temperature, there’s no better choice than our Polywood® plantation shutters since they are constructed for maximum insulation benefits. When managed properly, the Polywood Insulating System can block up to 30 degrees of airflow, and is able to reduce heat transfer by close to 45%, meaning your house stays the perfect temperature, and your AC bills are reduced.

For rake windows, ultraviolet-blocking window film is an additional consideration since it can be cut to fit any window shape. Keep in mind though that window film doesn’t do a lot in the way of offering visual control of the room, and we recommend pairing them with another window treatment such as shutters to give you more privacy and give style to your house.

The Money Aspect

Like we mentioned before, plantation shutters are extremely effective at home insulation as well as saving you money on your utilities, but there are additional ways you can benefit from your window investment. When maintained properly, 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 boost walkthrough appeal, just like new flooring.
