Which Window Treatments Look Best From the Exterior?

June 19, 2017

As a savvy homeowner in Dallas, you purchase window treatments based on how they look inside your home. But have you given any attention to which window treatments look best from outdoors, and which ones can give your home some added curb appeal?

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

Plantation Shutters Maximize Curb Appeal

Shutters are perfect for upping your 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 complement just about any type of home. With the stunning whites from Polywood® plantation shutters or beautifully rustic looks of Ovation® wood shutters, they can be a great counterpoint to any kind of siding, from wood siding to brick to shingle style siding.

Shutters can also help add some uniformity across each of your windows. If your window treatments are all wildly different you could end up with a jumbled look, so being able to coordinate the window treatments across all those windows is a huge boon. Our shutters are custom-built to fit any kind and shape of window, so you can get a tight, even look no matter what.

Lastly, shutters are super durable and easy to clean, so you’ll never have to worry about them looking shoddy, sun-bleached or dusty in the window like you might with a fabric window covering.

Shades In Dallas Offer Color Versatility

Although they may not add the same “pop” as shutters do, the most notable benefits of shades are their clean, solid look and huge number of color options. If you have a very specific color combo that you want to stick to across your siding, roof, trim, and windows – shades are probably going to be your best bet. With hundreds of choices in colors and textures, shades are one of the most versatile options.

Keep in mind with shades that they require a bit more maintenance to maintain their awesome looks. As time passes, they can wrinkle, crease, discolor, all of which can destroy their appeal. Also keep in mind how silhouettes can appear behind them in the evening when your inside lights are on.
