What Window Treatments Look Great From Outdoors?

Curtis Orton

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 the other side of your windows, 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 fantastic for upping your curb appeal because their looks stand out even from outside. With their bright, solid geometry and wide 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 add some uniformity 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 style and size of window, so you can get a coordinated, consistent look no matter what.

Finally, shutters are incredibly 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 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 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 might be your most versatile option.

Remember that shades require a bit more maintenance to keep their awesome looks. Over time, they can wrinkle, crease, fade and stain, which can make them lose any appeal they had. Also be mindful of how silhouettes can appear behind them in the evening when you have the lights on indoors.
