The Best Window Treatment For Angled Windows In Minneapolis

George Christ

As rake (or angled) windows are getting more popular in contemporary home design, regular window treatments like drapes or blinds may not cut it anymore. You need a window covering that can complement 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 the angled windows in your Minneapolis home.

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

Custom-Made For Any Size And Shape Window

No window treatment fits angled windows as superbly as do custom-built plantation shutters.

Do you have triangle-shaped windows in your Minneapolis home? Maybe they’re trapezoidal. No matter the case, Sunburst Shutters Minneapolis can construct shutters that perfectly fit and accentuate your window’s unique configuration. And unlike other window treatments that obstruct your window behind a rectangular cover, shutters can truly display the uniqueness of your home’s architecture.

Along with keeping the visual “pop” angled windows add to your house, plantation shutters also give you several benefits beyond their aesthetics.

Unrivaled Control Of Your Space

Shutters aren’t just a great window covering option because of their looks. Shutters are also the most ideal choice for giving you complete control over light and temperature in your room. With a quick adjustment of the louvers, plantation shutters allow you to alter the amount of light that comes into your room.

When it comes to keeping your room at a comfortable temperature, there’s no product better than Sunburst’s Polywood® plantation shutters since they are designed to provide energy-efficient insulation. When managed correctly, the Polywood Insulating System blocks close to 30° of airflow, and is able to lower heat transfer by nearly half, which means your home stays cozy, and your AC bills stay low.

For rake windows, solar-blocking window film is also an option 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 should usually be paired with another window treatment such as shutters to protect your privacy and give style to your house.

The Value Aspect

Like we mentioned above, plantation shutters are incredibly effective at home insulation as well as saving you money on your utilities, but there are additional ways you can collect on your window investment. When maintained properly, the shutters on your rake windows can last dozens of years, whereas other window treatments might need regular replacement after just a couple of seasons.

When it’s finally time to transition from your home and put it on the market, plantation shutters are a eye-catching perk for potential buyers in Minneapolis. Additionally, the character they add to your angled windows can improve walkthrough appeal, similar to new flooring.
