What Window Treatments Make Your Home Look Best From Outside?

June 19, 2017

As a savvy New Brunswick homeowner, you carefully choose window treatments based on how they can make your interior look. 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?

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

Shutters Offer Top Curb Appeal

Shutters are perfect for maximizing curb appeal because they’re so easy to see from outdoors. With their crisp, solid geometry and pronounced louvers, shutters “pop” more than other window treatments, and can accentuate just about any style of building. With the stunning whites from Polywood® plantation shutters or nature-inspired looks of Ovation® wood shutters, they can be a great counterpoint to any kind of siding, from brick siding to shingle siding and beyond.

Shutters can also help give you a uniform look across all your windows. Mismatched window treatments on one side of your home can result in48 a messy look, so being able to coordinate the window treatments across all those windows is a substantial benefit. Shutters can be custom-built to fit any style and size of window, so you can get a coordinated, even look no matter what.

Finally, shutters are super resilient and easy to clean, so there’s no need to worry about them looking shoddy, wrinkled or dirty in the window like you would with a fabric window treatment.

Shades In New Brunswick Open Up Your Color Palette

Though they don’t add the same “pop” as shutters do, the most notable benefits of shades are their clean, solid look and huge number of color options. If you have an incredibly particular color scheme in mind that you want to adhere to across your siding, roof, trim, and windows – shades are the window treatment for you. With hundreds of choices in colors and textures, shades are a do-it-all window treatment.

Remember that shades need a bit more maintenance to maintain their beautiful looks. As time passes, they can wrinkle, fold, fade and stain, all of which can destroy their appeal. Also keep in mind how silhouettes will cast on them at night when you have the lights on indoors.
