What Window Treatments Look Great From Outdoors?

Gary Harding

As a smart homeowner in Denver, you buy window treatments based on how they can make your interior look. But have you ever thought about which window treatments look best from the exterior, and which ones can give your home some added curb appeal?

Below are our top recommendations for window treatments that make your home’s exterior look even better.

Shutters Offer Top Curb Appeal

Shutters are great for maximizing curb appeal because their looks stand out even from outdoors. With their crisp, clean geometry and thick 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 beautifully rustic 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 your home can give you48 a messy look, so the ability to coordinate the window treatments across all your windows is a huge benefit. Shutters can be custom made to fit any kind and size of window, so you can get a clean, uniform look no matter what.

Finally, shutters are exceedingly durable and low-maintenance, so you’ll never have to worry about them looking dingy, sun-bleached or dusty in the window like you would with a fabric window covering.

Shades Offer Color Versatility

Though they may not have the same “pop” as shutters do, shades’ biggest benefits are their clean, solid look and ability to color match. If you have a very specific 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 choices in colors and textures, shades are one of the most versatile options.

Remember that shades require a bit more maintenance to maintain their stylish looks. Over the course of a few months, they can wrinkle, crease, wash out, which can make them lose any appeal they had. Also keep in mind how silhouettes can appear behind them in the evening when your inside lights are on.
