Which Window Treatments Help Your Home Look Great From Outdoors?

June 19, 2017

As a savvy homeowner in Bluff City, you buy window treatments based on how they can make your interior look. But have you given much thought as to which window treatments look best from outdoors, and which ones can give your home some added curb appeal?

These are our best recommendations for window treatments that make your home’s exterior look even better.

Plantation Shutters Give You Curb Appeal

Shutters are great for upping your curb appeal because they’re so easy to see from outdoors. With their bright, clean shape and thick louvers, shutters “pop” more than other window treatments, and complement just about any style of home. With the brilliant whites from Polywood® plantation shutters or muted and 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. If your window treatments are all wildly different you could end up with a messy look, so being able to use the same window treatments across all your windows is a great benefit. Our shutters are custom made to fit any type and size of window, so you can get a coordinated, even look no matter what.

Lastly, shutters are incredibly durable and easy to clean, so you won’t have to worry about them looking dingy, wrinkled or dusty in the window like you might with a fabric window treatment.

Shades In Bluff City Open Up Your Color Palette

Though 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 a very specific color combo that you want to stick to across your house – shades are probably going to be your best bet. With hundreds of options in colors and patterns, shades are a do-it-all window treatment.

Don’t forget that shades require a bit more upkeep to maintain their awesome looks. As time passes, they can wrinkle, fold, fade and stain, all of which can destroy their appeal. Also keep in mind how silhouettes can appear behind them at night when your inside lights are on.
