Which Window Treatments Make Your Home Look Even Better From Outdoors?

Darren Wong

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

These are our best picks for window treatments that make your home’s exterior look even better.

Shutters Maximize Curb Appeal

Shutters are perfect for improving your curb appeal because their looks stand out even from outside. 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 type of home. With the classic whites from Polywood® plantation shutters or nature-inspired 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 don’t match you may end up with a jumbled look, so being able to use the same window treatments across all your windows is a huge boon. Our shutters are custom made to fit any kind and shape of window, so you can get a tight, even look no matter what.

Finally, shutters are incredibly durable and low-maintenance, so there’s no need to worry about them looking shoddy, wrinkled or dirty in the window like you might with a fabric window covering.

Shades Open Up Your Color Palette

Even though they may not offer the same “pop” as shutters do, the most notable strengths of shades are their clean, solid look and ability to color match. If you have a very particular color scheme in mind that you want to adhere to across every party of your home – shades are what you want. With nearly endless choices in colors and textures, shades are one of the most versatile options.

Don’t forget that shades need a little more upkeep to keep their pristine looks. Over the course of a few months, they can wrinkle, fold, wash out, which can make them lose any appeal they had. Also be aware of how silhouettes can appear behind them at night when you have the lights on indoors.
