What Window Treatments Make Your Home Look Great From Outdoors?

Holly Perron

As a smart Hartford homeowner, you weigh your choices in window treatments based on how they look inside your home. But have you given any attention to which window treatments look best from the other side of your windows, and which ones can give your home some added curb appeal?

Here are our best recommendations for window treatments that look best from outdoors.

Plantation Shutters Maximize Curb Appeal

Shutters are perfect for improving your curb appeal because their looks stand out even from outside. With their crisp, clean shape and thick louvers, shutters “pop” more than other window treatments, and can accentuate just about any style of home. With the brilliant whites from Polywood® plantation shutters or nature-inspired looks of Ovation® wood shutters, they can complement any type of siding you have, from shingle to brick to stone.

Shutters can also help add some uniformity across each of your windows. Mismatched window treatments on one side of the house can result in48 a messy look, so being able to use the same window treatments across all those windows is a substantial benefit. Our shutters are custom made to fit any kind and size of window, so you can get a clean, uniform look no matter what.

Finally, shutters are super resilient and easy to clean, so you won’t have to worry about them looking dingy, sun-bleached or dirty in the window like you would with a fabric window treatment.

Shades Open Up Your Color Palette

Although they may not offer the same “pop” as shutters do, shades’ biggest strengths are their clean, solid look and ability to color match. If you have a very particular color scheme in mind that you want to adhere to across your house – shades are what you want. With hundreds of options in colors and textures, shades are a do-it-all window treatment.

Don’t forget that shades require a bit more maintenance to maintain their great looks. Over the course of a few months, they can wrinkle, crease, discolor, meaning all of their appeal goes away. Also be mindful of how silhouettes can appear behind them at night when you have the lights on indoors.
