What Window Treatments Look Best From the Outside of Your House?

When you think of window treatments and what would look best for your home, you usually picture them from the inside, right? But what is the first impression of your home? The outside. Ever wonder what window treatments look best from the outside? Don't worry, some of our favorite window treatments are great from both the inside and outside, especially with a few small tips.


What's great about shutters? Pretty much everything. Shutters look as good from the outside of your Everett home as they do the inside, and actually improve your curb appeal to passerbys. Because they have such a solid, sturdy shape, and a uniformed look in size and color, they easily stick out among the outdoor scenery and look great on just about any style of home. If multiple windows share the same type of style, shutters help coordinate your entire outside vibe. Have different window shapes or sizes? No worries, these babies can be custom made by Budget Blinds of Snohomish County, to fit any window shape or size. Plus, they are super resilient and low maintenance.


You may be questioning drapes as an option, after all, isn't it kind of an all or nothing appeal from the outside? The drapes are either open, or closed - not much room for creating a look that stands out when you're driving by. However, with custom drapery like ours, the drapes come well lined which give off a more solid look from the outside, as well as create better insulation from any unpleasant Pacific Northwest temperatures. When the drapes are of quality fabric and lining, they hold their shape easier when hooked off to one side, or swept apart down the middle.


Shades are fun because they bring a ton of color options which can really brighten up the view from the outdoors. If your Mill Creek, Washington home is any type of neutral tone, a solid color scheme through the shades will give that "pop" appeal. With so many colors and patterns, shades are one of the most versatile options. However, be mindful not to mix and match too many colors and patterns to avoid creating a jumbled view on the outside. If you have a more colorful painted home, check out our new and exclusive Inspired Shades™ collection. We created a complete line of natural woven shades in soft, natural fibers like hemp, jute and flax, and a stunning assortment of custom roller shades in contemporary prints and colors that you won't find anywhere else. These natural tones will balance out the curb appeal by bringing a soft, unified look through your windows.

Next time you are coming or going from your home, take a peek at what the outside world sees. It's true, that what's on the inside is what matters - but if your outside isn't up to your personal standards, just a few small tweaks can make a huge difference. We want you to feel good about your home, inside and out, in all seasons.
