Which Window Treatments Make Your Home Look Great From Outdoors?

June 19, 2017

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 the other side of your windows, 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.

Shutters Give You Curb Appeal

Shutters are fantastic for maximizing 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 building. With the stunning whites from Polywood® plantation shutters or natural 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 could end up with a messy look, so the ability to use the same window treatments across all your windows is a huge boon. Our shutters are custom-built to fit any style and size of window, so you can get a clean, consistent look no matter what.

Finally, shutters are exceedingly resilient and require very little upkeep, so you won’t have to worry about them looking dingy, faded or dirty in the window like you might with a fabric window covering.

Shades In Las Vegas Offer Color Versatility

Although they may not add the same “pop” as shutters do, the biggest benefits of shades are their clean, solid look and ability to color match. If you have a very particular color combo that you want to stick to across your siding, roof, trim, and windows – shades are the window treatment for you. With hundreds of choices in colors and textures, shades are a do-it-all window treatment.

Keep in mind with shades that they require a little more maintenance to keep their stylish looks. As time passes, they can wrinkle, crease, discolor, meaning all of their appeal goes away. Also be mindful of how silhouettes can appear behind them at night when you have the lights on indoors.
