Which Window Treatments Look Best From the Exterior?

June 19, 2017

As a savvy Atlanta homeowner, 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 can give your home some added 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 fantastic for upping your curb appeal because they’re so easy to see from outside. With their bright, solid lines and wide louvers, shutters “pop” more than other window treatments, and complement just about any style of home. 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 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 might end up with a jumbled look, so the ability to coordinate the window treatments across all your windows is a substantial 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 incredibly durable and easy to clean, so you won’t have to worry about them looking shoddy, sun-bleached or dirty in the window like you would with a fabric window treatment.

Shades In Atlanta Offer Color Versatility

Though they don’t offer the same “pop” as shutters do, shades’ biggest benefits 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 your siding, roof, trim, and windows – shades are probably going to be your best bet. 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 stylish 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.
