Easy Spring Window Box Ideas for Instant Curb Appeal

Spring has arrived, which means that it is time to get busy adding colorful floral arrangements around the exterior of your home. If you have thought about adding flowers or plants to the outside of your house, you should think about using planter boxes. They allow you to easily boost curb appeal and make your home more inviting.  

But, how do you choose the right window boxes to go with the décor of your home? Keep reading to find helpful window box ideas from Hooks and Lattice.

Fiberglass and PVC Planter Boxes

When you are looking for lightweight window box planters, you may want to consider using fiberglass or PVC planters. Fiberglass and PVC are nearly indestructible and are available in a wide range of styles and designs.

Among our most popular fiberglass window boxes are the Cleat Mount Laguna Planters. They feature clean lines that are perfect for colonial, Georgian or contemporary style homes.

These fiberglass designs can mimic the look of other materials, such as our Distressed Window Boxes or Bronze Fiberglass Planters. Both of these options have a rustic look that will help draw more attention to the exterior of your home.

Aluminum and Wrought Iron Window Boxes

If you are trying to dress up a brownstone or Tudor style home, you may want to take a closer look at our aluminum and wrought iron window boxes. They are also great for Victorian and Queen Anne style homes. The elegant handcrafted wrought iron has an authentic look. This captures the old world charm that is popular with a variety of home styling options.

Arch Decora Wrought Iron Window Box

Wrought iron options include our Arch Decora window boxes with crisscrossed bars that create a sophisticated look. For a bolder appearance, examine our European Window Box Cages. These cages are hand made from wrought iron. Arrange a series of 8-inch flower pots for a custom floral display.

Wood Window Box Planters

For those wanting a more natural look, you can use planter boxes constructed from wood. Redwood and cedar are naturally resistant to bugs, insects, and rotting. This makes them suitable for year-round outdoor use. They provide an organic, eco-friendly appearance that will look great with ranch, Pueblo, cottage, and bungalow style homes.

How to Enhance Home Decor Elegance with Exterior Shutters

Boasting some of the most beautiful exterior shutters on the market, we here at Hooks and Lattice are devoted to elegance and beauty in the name of home decor. We believe every home, apartment, and business could use a little sprucing up, especially to boost custom curb appeal. Our array of window shutters vary in size, shape, and color – and we can customize those aspects to suit your decor needs and specifications.

If you have only just begun thinking about exterior shutters to enhance the elegance of your home decor, we have some helpful advice on shutter types, as well as how to measure & install shutters, to get you started.

Choosing the Right Shutter Colors

The right composite window shutters can make or break the curb appeal of your home, apartment, of business. Take for example a small office building incorporated within an old-fashioned, yet beautiful, Colonial home. The home could be lovely shades of blue and white with tinges of dark brown, representative of a timeless look. When pondering exterior shutters for this type of place, you would want to match the colors of the exterior home decor to the shutters. Tackiness can be the death of curb appeal.

To choose the perfect shades and colors of your composite window shutters, you have to really examine your home – getting up close to pinpoint and pick out both bold and subtle hues in your decor. After that, choosing and matching up colorful, or neutral, exterior shutters should be a breeze.

How to Install Exterior Shutters

Hooks and Lattice shutters come with guarantees of ease. We believe the best house shutters are those that require very little time to install, but provide years, perhaps even decades, of beautiful decor elegance.

We offer two options for installation of your window shutters – decorative mount or operable use. Each pair of shutters includes the hardware required to mount them, as well as instructions on how to secure the pairs into place.

For example, for fixed shutters, you would hold the shutter in place while drilling into your window frame. Hook the hardware into the drilled holes, and voila! You have a perfectly mounted pair of decorative shutters to accentuate your home and add instant elegance to your exterior decor.

Hooks & Lattice Shutters – For the Win!

We take pride in saying, and being able to back up the fact, that our exterior window shutters in all their colors and shutter styles are the best. You simply cannot find the quality, care, and customization in big box stores. Add to the fact that we offer advice on upkeep, as well as guarantees, and you can see why our exterior shutters have been ranked at the tip top when it comes to home improvement.

Bring elegance to your home decor with a pair of house shutters from our slew of high-quality house enhancements!
