Which Window Treatments Make Your Home Look Great From the Exterior?

Jacob Hayes

As a savvy homeowner in Kingsport, you decide on your window treatments based on how they can make your interior look. But have you ever thought about which window treatments look best from the other side of your windows, and which ones can give your home some added curb appeal?

Below 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 wide 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 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 might 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 style and size of window, so you can get a tight, even look no matter what.

Lastly, shutters are incredibly durable and easy to clean, so there’s no need to worry about them looking dingy, wrinkled or dusty in the window like you might with a fabric window treatment.

Shades Open Up Your Color Palette

Although 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 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 stylish 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.
