Which Window Treatments Make Your Home Look Best From Outside?

June 19, 2017

As a savvy San Antonio homeowner, you weigh your choices in 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 outdoors, and which ones may add to your house’s curb appeal?

Below are our top recommendations 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 outdoors. With their crisp, clean shape and thick louvers, shutters are more noticeable than other window treatments, and complement just about any type of house. With the stunning whites from Polywood® plantation shutters or beautifully rustic 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 can also help give you a consolidated look across each of your windows. If your window treatments don’t match you might end up with a jumbled look, so the ability to coordinate the window treatments across all your windows is a huge benefit. Shutters can be custom-built to fit any kind and size of window, so you can get a tight, uniform look no matter what.

Finally, shutters are super resilient and easy to clean, so you’ll never have to worry about them looking dingy, wrinkled or dirty in the window like you would with a fabric window covering.

Shades In San Antonio Offer Color Versatility

Though they don’t offer the same “pop” as shutters do, the biggest things shades have going for them are their clean, solid look and huge number of color options. If you have a very particular color scheme that you want to stick to across your siding, roof, trim, and windows – shades are the window treatment for you. With nearly endless options in colors and patterns, shades might be your most versatile option.

Remember that shades require a little more upkeep to maintain their stylish looks. As time passes, they can wrinkle, fold, wash out, all of which can destroy their appeal. Also keep in mind how silhouettes can appear behind them at night when you have the lights on indoors.
