Which Window Treatments Help Your Home Look Great From the Exterior?

June 19, 2017

As a savvy Virginia Beach homeowner, you carefully choose window treatments based on how they can make your interior look. But have you ever thought about 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 best picks for window treatments that can elevate the looks of your home’s exterior.

Shutters Give You Curb Appeal

Shutters are perfect for maximizing curb appeal because their looks stand out even from outdoors. With their crisp, clean geometry and thick louvers, shutters are more noticeable than other window treatments, and are able to seamlessly match just about any style of building. With the brilliant whites from Polywood® plantation shutters or natural looks of Ovation® wood shutters, they can complement any type of siding you have, from shingle to brick to stone.

Shutters are able to give you a uniform look across each of your windows. If your window treatments are all wildly different you might end up with a messy look, so being able to use the same window treatments across all your windows is a substantial boon. Our shutters are custom-built to fit any type and size of window, so you can get a coordinated, uniform look no matter what.

Finally, shutters are exceedingly durable and require very little upkeep, so you won’t have to worry about them looking dingy, sun-bleached or dirty in the window like you might with a fabric window treatment.

Shades In Virginia Beach Open Up Your Color Palette

Even though they don’t have the same “pop” as shutters do, the most notable benefits of shades are their clean, solid look and wide variety of colors. If you have a very specific color scheme that you want to stick to across every party of your home – shades are the window treatment for you. With hundreds of choices in colors and patterns, shades are one of the most versatile options.

Remember that shades need a little more maintenance to keep their pristine looks. Over time, they can wrinkle, fold, wash out, meaning all of their appeal goes away. Also keep in mind how silhouettes will cast on them at night when your inside lights are on.
