Which Window Treatments Make Your Home Look Best From the Exterior?06/19/2017Darik Neilson As a smart homeowner in Las Vegas, you carefully choose window treatments based on how they can make your interior look. But have you given any attention to which window treatments look best from outdoors, and which ones increase your home’s curb appeal?Here are our top recommendations for window treatments that can elevate the looks of your home’s exterior.Plantation Shutters Give You Curb AppealShutters are perfect for improving your curb appeal because their looks stand out even from outdoors. With their crisp, solid geometry and wide louvers, shutters “pop” more than other window treatments, and are able to seamlessly match 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 shingle to brick to stone.Shutters are able to give you a consolidated look across all your windows. If your window treatments don’t match you might end up with a messy look, so the ability to use the same window treatments across all your windows is a substantial boon. Our shutters are custom-built to fit any type and shape of window, so you can get a clean, even look no matter what.Finally, shutters are exceedingly resilient and require very little upkeep, so you won’t have to worry about them looking shoddy, sun-bleached or dirty in the window like you might with a fabric window covering. Shades Offer Color VersatilityEven though they may not add the same “pop” as shutters do, shades’ biggest benefits are their clean, solid look and wide variety of colors. 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 hundreds of choices in colors and textures, shades are a do-it-all window treatment.Remember that shades require a little more maintenance to keep their awesome looks. Over the course of a few months, they can wrinkle, crease, discolor, which can make them lose any appeal they had. Also be mindful of how silhouettes can appear behind them at night when you have the lights on indoors.Beautify Your Home Inside and Out With New Window TreatmentsIf you’re ready to draw some more attention to your home with shutters, drapes or shades, give us a call today at 702-850-6619.
