Which Window Treatments Make Your Home Look Best From Outdoors?

Tyler Jorgensen

As a smart homeowner in Oklahoma City, you carefully choose window treatments based on what they can add to your home’s interior. But have you given much thought as to which window treatments look best from the exterior, and which ones increase your home’s curb appeal?

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

Shutters Up Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Shutters are perfect for improving your curb appeal because they’re so easy to see from outdoors. With their crisp, solid lines and wide louvers, shutters “pop” more than other window treatments, and complement just about any type of house. 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 brick siding to shingle siding and beyond.

Shutters can also help give you a consolidated look across all your windows. If your window treatments don’t match you could end up with a messy look, so the ability to coordinate the window treatments across all your windows is a huge boon. Our shutters are custom made to fit any style and shape of window, so you can get a coordinated, consistent look no matter what.

Finally, shutters are exceedingly resilient and low-maintenance, so you’ll never have to worry about them looking dingy, sun-bleached or dusty in the window like you might with a fabric window covering.

Shades Open Up Your Color Palette

Though they may not have the same “pop” as shutters do, the biggest things shades have going for them are their clean, solid look and huge number of color options. If you have a very particular color combo that you want to stick to across every party of your home – shades are the window treatment for you. With nearly endless choices in colors and patterns, shades are a do-it-all window treatment.

Keep in mind with shades that they need a bit more upkeep to keep their great looks. As time passes, they can wrinkle, crease, discolor, which can make them lose any appeal they had. Also be mindful of how silhouettes can appear behind them in the evening when you have the lights on indoors.
