What Window Treatments Make Your Home Look Best From Outdoors?06/19/2017Eric Ramsey As a savvy homeowner in Tampa, you decide on your window treatments based on how they look inside your home. But have you given much thought as to which window treatments look best from the other side of your windows, and which ones can give your home some added curb appeal?Here are our best recommendations for window treatments that can elevate the looks of your home’s exterior.Plantation Shutters Maximize Curb AppealShutters are great for improving your curb appeal because their looks stand out even from outdoors. With their crisp, solid shape and wide louvers, shutters are more noticeable than other window treatments, and complement just about any type of home. With the classic whites from Polywood® plantation shutters or beautifully rustic looks of Ovation® wood shutters, they can be a great counterpoint to any kind of siding, from wood siding to brick to shingle style siding.Shutters can also help give you a uniform look across all your windows. Mismatched window treatments on one side of your home can give you48 a jumbled look, so the ability to use the same window treatments across all your windows is a huge benefit. Shutters can be custom-built to fit any type and shape of window, so you can get a tight, even look no matter what.Finally, shutters are super durable and low-maintenance, so there’s no need 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 PaletteAlthough they may not offer the same “pop” as shutters do, the biggest things shades have going for them are their clean, solid look and wide variety of colors. If you have a very specific color combo that you want to stick to across your siding, roof, trim, and windows – shades are the window treatment for you. With nearly endless options in colors and patterns, shades are a do-it-all window treatment.Keep in mind with shades that they need a little more maintenance to maintain their pristine looks. Over the course of a few months, they can wrinkle, crease, fade and stain, meaning all of their appeal goes away. Also keep in mind how silhouettes will cast on them in the evening when your inside lights are on.Grab Your Neighbors’ Attention With New Window TreatmentsIf you’re ready to add to both the inside and outside appeal of your home with shutters, drapes or shades, call Sunburst today at 813-580-7288.
