Which Window Treatments Make Your Home Look Great From Outdoors?

June 19, 2017

As a savvy homeowner in Honolulu, you purchase window treatments based on how they look inside your home. But have you ever thought about which window treatments look best from the other side of your windows, and which ones increase your home’s curb appeal?

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

Shutters Maximize Curb Appeal

Shutters are fantastic 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 complement just about any type of home. With the bright 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 don’t match you may end up with a jumbled look, so being able to use the same window treatments across all those windows is a huge boon. Our shutters are custom made to fit any kind and shape of window, so you can get a coordinated, consistent look no matter what.

Lastly, shutters are super 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 In Honolulu Open Up Your Color Palette

Even though they may not offer the same “pop” as shutters do, shades’ biggest strengths are their clean, solid look and wide variety of colors. 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 great looks. As time passes, 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.
