Curb Appeal Tips - Window Treatments Matter

When realtors talk about “curb appeal” they are gauging the allure of a house from the outside. A home that has great curb appeal always makes a great first impression, whether or not it is for sale. While there are many ways to improve a home’s curb appeal, such as a fresh coat of paint or updated landscaping, window coverings are often overlooked. This is a mistake you should not repeat as impressive window treatments add greatly to your homes visual appeal and economic value.

Go for a Uniform Look

Your home should present a strong and cohesive appearance. You want viewers to yearn for the home, and not get caught off guard by an element that negatively draws attention. Window treatments are no different. They must be uniform and coordinated across all windows, otherwise it will look like a mismatched display. This is not to say that you should attempt to camouflage picture windows or accent windows. You just want to make sure that their treatments are similar. 

Shutters Provide Elegance and Cohesiveness

Shutters give your home an elegant presentation and a lot of curb appeal as they are easy to see from the street. They give your home an upscale appearance and a stronger visual punch than most other window coverings. Shutters will also add to the resale value of your home, which is a nice added bonus. Since shutters can be fitted to almost any type of window, they always present that uniform appearance that is so critical. Light colored shutters contrast nicely with both bold hues and neutral tones. They also help to smooth out color variations from rooms inside the home that could otherwise be jarring. Shutters are also a great way to add privacy to interior rooms like bathrooms and bedrooms. 

When it comes to elevating your curb appeal with window treatments, shutters are the perfect solution because of their upscale, cohesive look. Contact Eclipse Shutters today to take your curb appeal to the next level!
