What Window Treatments Look Great From Outdoors?

June 19, 2017

As a savvy Sacramento homeowner, you purchase window treatments based on how they can make your interior look. But have you ever thought about which window treatments look best from outdoors, and which ones may add to your house’s curb appeal?

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

Shutters Maximize Curb Appeal

Shutters are perfect for upping your curb appeal because their looks stand out even from outside. With their crisp, solid lines and thick louvers, shutters are more noticeable than other window treatments, and can accentuate just about any style of home. With the stunning whites from Polywood® plantation shutters or all-natural looks of Ovation® wood shutters, they can be a great counterpoint to any kind of siding, from wood siding to brick to shingle style siding.

Shutters are able to give you a uniform look across each of your windows. Mismatched window treatments on one side of the house can give you48 a messy look, so the ability to use the same window treatments across all those windows is a great boon. Our shutters are custom made to fit any type and size of window, so you can get a coordinated, even look no matter what.

Finally, shutters are super durable and easy to clean, so you won’t have to worry about them looking shoddy, faded or dirty in the window like you might with a fabric window covering.

Shades In Sacramento Open Up Your Color Palette

Though they may not add the same “pop” as shutters do, the most notable strengths of shades are their clean, solid look and wide variety of colors. If you have a very particular color combo in mind that you want to adhere to across every party of your home – shades are the window treatment for you. With hundreds of options in colors and patterns, shades are one of the most versatile options.

Remember that shades need a bit more maintenance to keep their awesome looks. Over time, they can wrinkle, crease, fade and stain, meaning all of their appeal goes away. Also keep in mind how silhouettes can appear behind them in the evening when your inside lights are on.
