Outdoor Window Treatments: Coverings for an Intimate, Indoor Feel

Window treatments and custom draperies can enhance both the interior of your home, as well as the exterior of your living space. Outdoor window treatments and customized exterior details bring an intimacy and uniqueness to your home that you and your family will love.


Exterior Window Treatments

Incorporating window treatments in your home offers endless versatility both functionally and stylistically, giving you control over the way light and heat stream through your windows. But interior window treatments are not your only option. In fact, exterior window treatments offer an incredible craftsmanship to the exterior of your home, bringing a unique classic architectural element to the exterior of your windows.

Wood shutters offer gorgeous embellishment to your home, maximize privacy, and offer light control.  Wood shutters also provide the opportunity to further customize the colors of the exterior of your home, whether you choose to utilize classic woods or dramatic stains and paints, exterior shutters are a fantastic way to give your home that unique touch that makes your house, your home.


Exterior custom draperies

Front porches, back yard patios, gazebos, pergolas and pavilion terraces are all fantastic opportunities to incorporate exterior custom draperies. Exterior drapes offer aesthetic and functional benefits to any outdoor living space.

Depending on the direction your front porch or terrace faces, your family and guests may bear the brunt of the harsh rays of the sun depending on the time of year and the time of day. Direct sunlight also fades and damages artwork, furniture and other pieces much more quickly, so protecting both your family, friends and things with draperies on your porch gives you the ability to control the sunlight.

Aesthetically, exterior drapes also offer a soft aesthetic touch, nicely complementing earthy woods and harsh metals. Customize your drapes to match your gorgeous, bright pillows and outdoor cushions, giving your outdoor space color continuity and vibrancy.


Exterior UV Protection

While outdoors, the sun can really put a damper on our enjoyment. While many soft options like outdoor drapery provide a beautiful aesthetic, sometimes our goal is simply to not be hot. Or, not get sunburned at the very least.

Fortunately, there are multiple options to help protect you and your outdoor furniture from UV rays!



Outdoor awnings provide not only plenty of shade, but UV protection to boot. The best part? The shade under a SunSetter awning can be as much as 20 degrees cooler than the surrounding areas! Imagine how much of a difference you’d feel between 75 to 95 degrees while outside sipping lemonade or grilling! Plus they can add value to your home, and they help define outdoor spaces visually for a more completed look.

Exterior Solar Shades

Solar shades are another beautiful choice for outdoor spaces. Whether you’re covering the sides of a pergola, the windows of your sunroom, or even create optional drop down shades from underneath the edges of your deck, solar shades are the perfect solution. They block 90-99% of harmful UVA and UVB rays, while also providing a clean, sleek, modern look. They’re also really easy to clean, which is a fantastic benefit with anything outdoors! Depending on your color choice and opacity, they can also provide you with some privacy during the day (at night, not so much). So enjoying a beverage on your enclosed porch without direct sunlight AND nosy neighbors? Sign us up.

So think outside of the inside, dive into the possibilities of outdoor window treatment customization and transform your outdoor living spaces into the tranquil paradises you’ve always imagined.
