Which Window Treatments Look Even Better From Outdoors?

Dan Taylor

As a savvy homeowner in Atlanta, you decide on your 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 increase your home’s curb appeal?

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

Plantation Shutters Give You Curb Appeal

Shutters are perfect for upping your curb appeal because they’re so easy to see from outside. With their bright, solid geometry and wide louvers, shutters “pop” more than other window treatments, and can accentuate just about any style of home. 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 are able to give you a consolidated look across each of your windows. If your window treatments don’t match you could end up with a jumbled look, so the ability to coordinate the window treatments across all your windows is a huge boon. Our shutters are custom-built to fit any kind and size of window, so you can get a clean, consistent look no matter what.

Lastly, shutters are super durable and low-maintenance, so you won’t have to worry about them looking shoddy, faded or dirty in the window like you would with a fabric window treatment.

Shades In Atlanta Offer Color Versatility

Though they don’t have the same “pop” as shutters do, the biggest things shades have on their side are their clean, solid look and huge number of color options. If you have a very specific color combo in mind that you want to adhere to across every party of your home – shades are what you want. With nearly endless options in colors and textures, shades are a do-it-all window treatment.

Remember that shades need a bit more upkeep to keep their awesome looks. Over the course of a few months, they can wrinkle, fold, discolor, which can make them lose any appeal they had. Also be aware of how silhouettes will cast on them at night when you have the lights on indoors.
