What Window Treatments Look Great From Outdoors?

Kasey Udy

As a smart St. George homeowner, you decide on your window treatments based on how they look inside your home. But have you given much thought as to which window treatments look best from the other side of your windows, and which ones may add to your house’s curb appeal?

Below are our top recommendations for window treatments that look great both outside and in.

Shutters Offer Top Curb Appeal

Shutters are perfect for maximizing curb appeal because they’re so easy to see from outdoors. With their bright, solid lines and pronounced louvers, shutters are more noticeable than other window treatments, and are able to seamlessly match just about any style of building. With the brilliant whites from Polywood® plantation shutters or muted and natural 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 consolidated look across all your windows. Mismatched window treatments on one side of the house can give you48 a jumbled look, so the ability to use the same window treatments across all your windows is a substantial benefit. Our shutters are custom made to fit any kind and shape of window, so you can get a tight, consistent look no matter what.

Finally, shutters are incredibly durable and easy to clean, so you won’t have to worry about them looking shoddy, faded or dirty in the window like you might with a fabric window treatment.

Shades In St. George 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 particular color combo in mind that you want to adhere to across your house – shades are the window treatment for you. With nearly endless choices in colors and patterns, shades are one of the most versatile options.

Don’t forget that shades require a little more maintenance to maintain their awesome looks. Over the course of a few months, they can wrinkle, crease, wash out, all of which can destroy their appeal. Also keep in mind how silhouettes will cast on them in the evening when you have the lights on indoors.
