How to Ensure “Curb Appeal” When Choosing Your Drapes

What looks good from the inside may not look good on the inside.

Some people may be so focused on what their window coverings look like from inside the house, that they do not even consider what they might look like to passers by. Unfortunately, these seemingly simple choices you make when you move into a home, may come back to haunt you when it comes time to sell the place.

Here’s an example of a set of window coverings that doesn’t look so appealing from outside. It looks bunchy, like they are the wrong size, and it just doesn’t appear to be a clean set of lines from the outside.

One of the most important things to think about when selling a home is the curb appeal.

The first impression matters so much, which is why real estate agents always encourage you to tidy up your yard and mow the law when getting ready to show your home to buyers.

So when you are making changes to your home interior, or are just moving in and making purchases like window coverings, take the time to make the right choices, or get some help from an expert.

Now here are some examples of beautiful window treatments that are simple, but look nice and clean from the outside looking in.

Her solution? Concrete paint.
