The Best Window Covering For Angled Windows In New Brunswick

August 29, 2016

With angled (or rake) windows becoming more and more popular in contemporary interior design, common window treatments such as curtains or drapes may not cut it any longer. You need a window covering that will complement the uniqueness 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 New Brunswick home.

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

Custom-Constructed For Any Window Shape And Size

No window treatment can fit angled windows as perfectly as do custom-built plantation shutters.Do you have triangle-shaped windows in your New Brunswick home? Maybe they’re trapezoidal. Whatever your situation, Sunburst Shutters New Brunswick can construct shutters that seamlessly fit and emphasize your window’s unique configuration. And unlike other window treatments that obstruct your window with a rectangular cover, shutters can truly show the individuality of your home’s architecture.

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

Complete Control Over Your Space

Shutters aren’t just a fantastic window covering choice for their aesthetics. Shutters are also the most effective choice for giving you utmost control over heat flow and light in your home. By simply adjusting the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to alter how much light that enters into your space.

When it’s a priority to keep your room at a preferable temperature, there’s no choice other than Sunburst’s Polywood® plantation shutters since they are constructed for maximum insulation benefits. When managed properly, the Polywood Insulating System can block nearly 30 degrees of airflow, and can reduce heat transfer by up to 45%, so your house stays the perfect temperature, and your heating bills stay low.

For non-rectangular windows, ultraviolet-blocking window film is another consideration because it can be custom cut to any shape. Keep in mind though that window film doesn’t do a lot in the way of offering visual control of the space, and we recommend pairing them with a secondary window treatment such as shutters to protect your privacy and add style to your home.

The Value Component

As mentioned before, plantation shutters are proven effective at containing heat flow and 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 rake windows can last a lifetime, where other window treatments will likely need eventual replacement after a few short years.

When the day comes to move on from your house and put it on the market, plantation shutters are a eye-catching perk for possible buyers in New Brunswick. Additionally, the charm they give your angled windows can boost walkthrough appeal, similar to a classic hardwood floor.
