What Window Treatments Make Your Home Look Even Better From the Exterior?

Mike Horn

As a savvy New Brunswick homeowner, you weigh your choices in window treatments based on how they can make your interior look. But have you given any attention to which window treatments look best from the other side of your windows, and which ones may add to your house’s curb appeal?

These 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 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 natural 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. If your window treatments are all wildly different you could end up with a messy look, so being able to coordinate the window treatments across all those windows is a huge benefit. Shutters can be custom-built to fit any type and size of window, so you can get a coordinated, even look no matter what.

Finally, shutters are incredibly resilient and low-maintenance, 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 biggest things shades have going for them 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.

Keep in mind with shades that they 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 be mindful of how silhouettes will cast on them at night when you have the lights on indoors.
