Which Window Treatments Help Your Home Look Best From Outdoors?

June 19, 2017

As a savvy Miami 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 may add to your house’s curb appeal?

Here are our best picks for window treatments that can elevate the looks of your home’s exterior.

Shutters Maximize Curb Appeal

Shutters are great for improving your curb appeal because they’re so easy to see from outside. With their bright, clean geometry and wide louvers, shutters are more noticeable than other window treatments, and complement just about any type of building. With the brilliant 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 add some uniformity across all your windows. If your window treatments don’t match you might end up with a messy look, so the ability to coordinate the window treatments across all those windows is a huge boon. Our shutters are custom made to fit any type and shape of window, so you can get a tight, even look no matter what.

Lastly, shutters are super resilient and low-maintenance, so there’s no need to worry about them looking dingy, faded or dirty in the window like you would with a fabric window treatment.

Shades In Miami Open Up Your Color Palette

Though they may not offer the same “pop” as shutters do, the biggest strengths of shades are their clean, solid look and ability to color match. If you have an incredibly specific color combo in mind that you want to adhere to across your siding, roof, trim, and windows – shades are the window treatment for you. With nearly endless options in colors and patterns, shades are a do-it-all window treatment.

Don’t forget that shades need a little more upkeep to keep their beautiful 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 can appear behind them in the evening when your inside lights are on.
