What Window Treatments Look Even Better From the Exterior?

Todd Hansen

As a smart Orlando homeowner, you weigh your choices in window treatments based on how they look inside your home. But have you given any attention to which window treatments look best from the exterior, and which ones increase your home’s curb appeal?

Here are our top picks for window treatments that can elevate the looks of your home’s exterior.

Plantation Shutters Offer Top Curb Appeal

Shutters are fantastic for upping your curb appeal because their looks stand out even from outside. With their crisp, clean shape and wide louvers, shutters are more noticeable than other window treatments, and are able to seamlessly match just about any style 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 brick siding to shingle siding and beyond.

Shutters can also help give you a consolidated look across each of your windows. Mismatched window treatments on one side of the house can result in48 a messy look, so being able to use the same window treatments across all those windows is a huge benefit. Our shutters are custom-built to fit any type and shape of window, so you can get a coordinated, consistent look no matter what.

Finally, shutters are super resilient and low-maintenance, so you won’t have to worry about them looking dingy, faded or dusty in the window like you would with a fabric window covering.

Shades Offer Color Versatility

Even though they may not have the same “pop” as shutters do, shades’ biggest benefits are their clean, solid look and huge number of color options. If you have a very particular color scheme in mind that you want to adhere to across your siding, roof, trim, and windows – 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 maintain their pristine looks. As time passes, they can wrinkle, crease, wash out, all of which can destroy their appeal. Also keep in mind how silhouettes will cast on them at night when you have the lights on indoors.
