Which Window Treatments Look Best From Outdoors?

June 19, 2017

As a smart homeowner in Boise, you buy window treatments based on what they can add to your home’s interior. But have you given much thought as to which window treatments look best from the exterior, and which ones can give your home some added curb appeal?

Here are our best recommendations for window treatments that make your home’s exterior look even better.

Shutters Up Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Shutters are perfect for maximizing curb appeal because they’re so easy to see from outdoors. With their bright, clean lines and wide louvers, shutters “pop” more than other window treatments, and are able to seamlessly match just about any type 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 consolidated look across all your windows. If your window treatments are all wildly different you may end up with a messy look, so the ability to coordinate the window treatments across all your windows is a huge boon. Shutters can be custom-built to fit any kind and shape of window, so you can get a coordinated, uniform look no matter what.

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

Shades In Boise Offer Color Versatility

Although they don’t have the same “pop” as shutters do, shades’ biggest strengths are their clean, solid look and huge number of color options. If you have an incredibly specific color combo in mind that you want to adhere to across every party of your home – shades are what you want. With hundreds of choices in colors and textures, shades are one of the most versatile options.

Remember that shades require a bit more upkeep 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 can appear behind them in the evening when you have the lights on indoors.
