The Best Awning Window Treatments In Honolulu

June 20, 2022

Awning windows in Honolulu have been known to be difficult to cover while still enjoying their many perks. They have hinges above the glass and open outward from the lower end when you operate a crank. You typically find them higher in a room than other window varieties and in more humid spaces like master baths and kitchens where you need more airflow. They are also generally longer in width than height.

Innovative Polywood® plantation shutters are well-suited to the difficulties faced by awning window treatments in Honolulu. They open and close effortlessly, match the non-standard measurements of awning windows, and are resistant to moisture. Here are all the reasons why Polywood shutters are your preferred option in awning window treatments.

Polywood Shutters Are The Perfect Complement To Awning Windows

Awning windows are designed to provide an abundance of light and ventilation, so you don’t want window treatments that inhibit that. Polywood shutters give you various means to manage natural light, ventilation, and privacy. You can open up their louvered panels to the left and right if you desire complete sunlight or fresh air from your awning windows or you might shift their louvers for partial sun. If your awning windows are high on the wall, sunlight could come in at an awkward angle. Adjustable louvers will shift outdoor light if it creates glare on a mirror or other surface or shines in your eyes.

If your awning windows are located near the ceiling, shutters will still be simple to operate. You don’t have to reach the top of the window to shut them like you would with other window coverings. Simply open or close the panels and louvers with the tilt rod from wherever you have access to. Shutters don’t use cords that will swing and catch on your crank mechanism either!

Polywood Shutters Accommodate Wider Awning Windows For Outstanding Insulation

Since awning windows are frequently greater in width than height, you commonly won’t find ready-made blinds that fit them correctly. Use custom-made interior shutters instead. The outer enclosure is fabricated to your window’s precise measurements to ensure a flawless fit. This exacting construction looks better and wards off openings for sunlight or drafts to get through. The installation may also be customized to accommodate your awning window crank, so it's easily usable.

Polywood shutters feature the additional benefit of exclusive weatherstripping that brings another level of insulation if you close them. This insulation capability helps keep the area at a comfortable temperature and saves you money on utility costs.

Polywood Shutters Are Resilient Against Damp Conditions

You’ll typically find Honolulu awning windows in baths or kitchens for extra ventilation. Unfortunately, the constant humidity and heat in these areas may destroy wooden or cloth window treatments. But not Polywood shutters! Their composite wood and resilient outer finish doesn’t crack, discolor, or warp from the tough conditions. You can confidently install them on awning windows near the shower or above the kitchen faucet, and they’ll remain in perfect shape for as long as you stay in the house.

Long-lasting Polywood shutters are effortless to clean, too, even if your awning windows are hard to reach. In lieu of removing them to launder like curtains or struggling to clean them with a vacuum attachment like shades, just remove dirt and dust with an extendable duster. If it ever happens that your kitchen or bathroom shutters become sticky, all they require is a quick scrub with a dampened rag.
