How to Use Window Treatments to Boost Curb Appeal, Kauai County, Hawaii

Whether you’re planning on selling your home or just want to smile every time you pull up to the front door, update the window treatments. Though they’re an often overlooked aspect of curb appeal, coordinating shutters, blinds, and drapes can have a dramatic impact on a property’s overall aesthetic. Here are just a few strategies for using these elements to boost the curb appeal of your home.

3 Ways to Increase Curb Appeal With Window Treatments

1. Add Window Boxes

Window boxes will add a touch of color and charm to the front of your home, especially if you fill them with seasonal flowers. For example, with fall just around the corner, now is the perfect time to decorate with orange and gold accents. If you have window boxes, that could mean filling them with chrysanthemums, spider mums, and gerbera daisies.

2. Coordinate & Repaint

window treatmentsWhile your shutters and front door don’t necessarily have to match, their shades should at least complement each other. If that means updating one or both, repaint the window trim while you’re at it. As soon as this trim starts to chip or fade, it can detract from the home’s curb appeal by making the entire property look old and worn. 

3. Remain Neutral 

If you want to sell the home in the near future or get creative with lawn ornaments and other whimsical decor, opt for neutral colors when updating the window treatments. Creamy white shutters are perfect for street-facing windows, for example, especially if the rest of the house has white trim. Browns and grays can also boost a property’s curb appeal for prospective buyers. If you still want that pop of color, you’ll have all the more reason to install window boxes full of bright, fresh flowers.
