What Window Treatments Help Your Home Look Best From the Exterior?

June 19, 2017

As a savvy Cincinnati homeowner, you purchase 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 may add to your house’s curb appeal?

Here are our best picks for window treatments that look best from outdoors.

Shutters Offer Top Curb Appeal

Shutters are fantastic for maximizing curb appeal because their looks stand out even from outside. With their bright, solid geometry and pronounced louvers, shutters are more noticeable than other window treatments, and complement just about any style of home. 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 brick siding to shingle siding and beyond.

Shutters are able to give you a uniform look across each of your windows. Mismatched window treatments on one side of the house can give you48 a jumbled 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 style and shape of window, so you can get a clean, even look no matter what.

Lastly, shutters are exceedingly resilient and easy to clean, so you won’t have to worry about them looking dingy, wrinkled or dusty in the window like you would with a fabric window covering.

Shades In Cincinnati Open Up Your Color Palette

Though they may not have the same “pop” as shutters do, the biggest benefits of shades are their clean, solid look and wide variety of colors. 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 nearly endless choices in colors and patterns, shades are one of the most versatile options.

Keep in mind with shades that they require a little more maintenance to maintain their beautiful looks. Over time, they can wrinkle, fold, fade and stain, which can make them lose any appeal they had. Also keep in mind how silhouettes can appear behind them at night when you have the lights on indoors.
