What Window Treatments Look Great From Outdoors?

June 19, 2017

As a smart Orlando homeowner, you carefully choose window treatments based on what they can add to your home’s interior. 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 look great both outside and in.

Plantation Shutters Give You Curb Appeal

Shutters are fantastic for upping your curb appeal because their looks stand out even from outside. With their crisp, clean shape and thick 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 beautifully rustic looks of Ovation® wood shutters, they can complement any type of siding you have, from wood siding to brick to shingle style siding.

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, even look no matter what.

Finally, shutters are incredibly resilient and easy to clean, so there’s no need to worry about them looking dingy, sun-bleached or dusty in the window like you would with a fabric window covering.

Shades In Orlando Open Up Your Color Palette

Although they may not offer the same “pop” as shutters do, the biggest strengths of shades are their clean, solid look and huge number of color options. If you have an incredibly particular color scheme 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 pristine looks. As time passes, they can wrinkle, crease, discolor, all of which can destroy their appeal. Also be mindful of how silhouettes will cast on them at night when you have the lights on indoors.
