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

June 19, 2017

As a smart St. George homeowner, you decide on your window treatments based on what they can add to your home’s interior. But have you ever thought about which window treatments look best from outdoors, and which ones may add to your house’s curb appeal?

These are our top recommendations for window treatments that can elevate the looks of your home’s exterior.

Shutters Give You Curb Appeal

Shutters are perfect for improving your 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 house. 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 huge 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 low-maintenance, so there’s no need to worry about them looking shoddy, sun-bleached 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 offer the same “pop” as shutters do, shades’ biggest benefits are their clean, solid look and ability to color match. 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 stylish looks. As time passes, they can wrinkle, crease, discolor, 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.
