The Perfect Window Treatment For Angled Windows In Colorado Springs

Gary Harding

With rake (or angled) windows becoming increasingly popular in contemporary home design, run-of-the-mill window treatments such as shades or curtains may not cut it any longer. You need a window treatment that will accentuate the uniqueness of your window, instead of hiding it. For this reason and others which we’ll dive into, plantation shutters are your best option for any angled windows in your Colorado Springs house.

Let’s get the facts on how your angled windows would be served best by shutters from Sunburst Shutters Colorado Springs.

Custom-Built For Any Window Shape And Size

No window treatment available can fit angled windows as perfectly as do custom-constructed plantation shutters.

Do you have triangular windows in your Colorado Springs home? Maybe you have windows that are trapezoidal. No matter the case, Sunburst Shutters Colorado Springs can construct shutters that seamlessly fit and accentuate your window’s unique configuration. And unlike blinds or shades that hide your window behind a rectangular cover, shutters can truly display the individuality of your home’s architecture.

In addition to letting you keep the visual “pop” angled windows add to your home, plantation shutters also give you numerous benefits beyond their looks.

Unmatched Control Of Your Space

Shutters aren’t just an excellent window covering option because of their visual appeal. Shutters are also the most ideal choice for giving you complete control over heat flow and light in your home. By quickly adjusting the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to change how much light you let into your space.

When it’s a priority to keep your room at a comfortable temperature, there’s no better choice than Sunburst’s Polywood® plantation shutters since they are built for maximum insulation benefits. When utilized correctly, the Polywood Insulating System can block nearly 30 degrees of airflow, and is able to lower heat transfer by close to 45%, meaning your house stays the perfect temperature, and your heating bills are reduced.

For uniquely-shaped windows, solar-blocking window film is also an option because it is able to be custom cut to any shape. Remember though that window film doesn’t do a lot in the way of allowing you to have visual control of the area, and should usually be paired with a secondary window treatment like shutters to protect your privacy and add style to your windows.

The Money Component

Like we mentioned above, plantation shutters are proven effective at home insulation as well as increasing your energy efficiency while decreasing your heating 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 dozens of years, whereas other window treatments would need regular replacement after a few short years.

When it comes time to transition from your home and put it up for sale, plantation shutters are a notable selling point for potential buyers in Colorado Springs. Not to mention, the charm they give your angled windows can boost walkthrough appeal, just like new flooring.
