Which Window Treatments Help Your Home Look Great From Outdoors?

June 19, 2017

As a smart Indianapolis homeowner, you decide on your window treatments based on how they look inside your home. But have you given any attention to which window treatments look best from outdoors, and which ones can give your home some added curb appeal?

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

Plantation Shutters Give You Curb Appeal

Shutters are perfect for maximizing curb appeal because they’re so easy to see from outdoors. With their crisp, clean geometry and wide louvers, shutters “pop” more 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 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 add some uniformity across each of your windows. If your window treatments are all wildly different you could end up with a messy look, so being able to coordinate the window treatments across all your windows is a substantial benefit. Shutters can be custom-built to fit any type and size of window, so you can get a coordinated, uniform look no matter what.

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

Shades In Indianapolis Offer Color Versatility

Though they don’t add the same “pop” as shutters do, the biggest things shades have on their side are their clean, solid look and ability to color match. If you have a very particular color scheme in mind that you want to adhere to across your house – shades are what you want. With nearly endless options in colors and textures, shades might be your most versatile option.

Don’t forget that shades require a little more upkeep to maintain their stylish looks. As time passes, they can wrinkle, fold, discolor, which can make them lose any appeal they had. Also keep in mind how silhouettes will cast on them at night when you have the lights on indoors.
