What Window Treatments Look Great From Outdoors?

Nate Gromen

As a savvy homeowner in Cleveland, you buy window treatments based on what they can add to your home’s interior. But have you given much thought as to which window treatments look best from the other side of your windows, and which ones can give your home some added curb appeal?

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

Shutters Up Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Shutters are perfect for maximizing curb appeal because their looks stand out even from outside. With their bright, clean lines and wide louvers, shutters “pop” more than other window treatments, and can accentuate just about any type of building. With the stunning whites from Polywood® plantation shutters or natural looks of Ovation® wood shutters, they can be a great counterpoint to any kind of siding, from shingle to brick to stone.

Shutters can also help give you a consolidated look across each of your windows. Mismatched window treatments on one side of the house can give you48 a messy look, so the ability to use the same window treatments across all those windows is a great boon. Our shutters are custom-built to fit any kind and size of window, so you can get a coordinated, even look no matter what.

Lastly, shutters are incredibly durable and require very little upkeep, so there’s no need to worry about them looking shoddy, sun-bleached or dusty in the window like you would with a fabric window covering.

Shades Offer Color Versatility

Although they don’t 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 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 are one of the most versatile options.

Don’t forget that shades require a bit more upkeep to keep their pristine looks. As time passes, they can wrinkle, crease, fade and stain, all of which can destroy their appeal. Also be aware of how silhouettes will cast on them in the evening when your inside lights are on.
