What Window Treatments Make Your Home Look Even Better From Outdoors?

Neil Blackwelder

As a smart Charlotte homeowner, you buy window treatments based on what they can add to your home’s interior. But have you ever thought about which window treatments look best from outdoors, and which ones increase your home’s curb appeal?

Here are our top picks for window treatments that look great both outside and in.

Plantation Shutters Offer Top Curb Appeal

Shutters are fantastic for upping your curb appeal because their looks stand out even from outdoors. With their bright, solid geometry and thick louvers, shutters are more noticeable than other window treatments, and complement just about any type of house. With the stunning whites from Polywood® plantation shutters or all-natural looks of Ovation® wood shutters, they can complement any type of siding you have, from brick siding to shingle siding and beyond.

Shutters can also help give you a uniform look across each of your windows. Mismatched window treatments on one side of your home can give you48 a jumbled look, so the ability to use the same window treatments across all your windows is a great boon. Shutters can be custom made to fit any style and shape of window, so you can get a tight, uniform look no matter what.

Lastly, shutters are exceedingly resilient and easy to clean, so there’s no need to worry about them looking shoddy, wrinkled or dusty in the window like you might with a fabric window covering.

Shades Open Up Your Color Palette

Even though they may not add the same “pop” as shutters do, the biggest benefits of shades are their clean, solid look and wide variety of colors. If you have an incredibly particular color combo that you want to stick to across your siding, roof, trim, and windows – shades are what you want. With nearly endless options in colors and patterns, shades are a do-it-all window treatment.

Keep in mind with shades that they need a bit more maintenance to maintain their awesome looks. As time passes, they can wrinkle, fold, discolor, meaning all of their appeal goes away. Also keep in mind how silhouettes can appear behind them at night when you have the lights on indoors.
