What Window Treatments Make Your Home Look Great From Outside?

June 19, 2017

As a smart Charlotte homeowner, you buy window treatments based on how they look inside your home. But have you given much thought as 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 top picks for window treatments that can elevate the looks of your home’s exterior.

Plantation Shutters Give You Curb Appeal

Shutters are perfect for upping your curb appeal because their looks stand out even from outdoors. With their bright, solid lines and wide louvers, shutters are more noticeable than other window treatments, and can accentuate just about any type of building. 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 wood siding to brick to shingle style siding.

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-built to fit any type and shape of window, so you can get a tight, uniform look no matter what.

Lastly, shutters are exceedingly resilient and low-maintenance, so you won’t have to worry about them looking shoddy, wrinkled or dusty in the window like you might with a fabric window covering.

Shades In Charlotte Open Up Your Color Palette

Although they may not add the same “pop” as shutters do, shades’ biggest strengths are their clean, solid look and ability to color match. If you have an incredibly specific 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.

Remember that shades need a bit more maintenance to maintain their stylish looks. Over the course of a few months, 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.
