The Perfect Window Covering For Angled Windows In Las Vegas

August 29, 2016

As rake (or angled) windows are becoming more and more popular in contemporary home design, regular window treatments like drapes or blinds just don’t cut it any longer. You deserve a window covering that will highlight the uniqueness of your window, instead of obstructing it. For this reason and many more, plantation shutters are our number one recommendation for any angled windows in your Las Vegas home.

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

Custom-Built For Any Window Shape And Size

No window treatment available fits angled windows as perfectly as do custom-made plantation shutters.Have triangle-shaped windows in your Las Vegas house? Perhaps you have windows that are trapezoidal. No matter the case, Sunburst Shutters Las Vegas can build shutters that seamlessly fit and emphasize your window’s unique configuration. And unlike drapes or curtains that obscure your window behind a rectangular cover, shutters can truly show the uniqueness of your home’s architecture.

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

Unrivaled Control Over Your Space

Shutters aren’t just an excellent window covering product based on their looks. Shutters are also the most effective product for giving you complete control over the amount of light and heat in your home. With a simple adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to alter the amount of light that comes into your space.

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

For angled windows, solar-blocking window film is another option since it can be cut to fit any window shape. Keep in mind though that window film won’t give you much visual control of the room, and we recommend pairing them with another window treatment like shutters to allow for more privacy and give style to your home.

The Value Aspect

Like we mentioned above, plantation shutters are proven effective at containing heat flow and lowering your utility bills, but there are additional ways you can save money from your window investment. Given the proper care, the shutters on your rake windows can last decades, whereas other window treatments will likely need regular replacement after just a couple of seasons.

When it comes time to transition from your house and put it on the market, plantation shutters are a notable selling point for possible buyers in Las Vegas. In addition, the charm they add to your rake windows can boost walkthrough appeal, similar to new flooring.
