Alternatives to shutters for window exteriors?
July 3, 2012 7:36 AM Subscribe
Our new house has a very plain front - I think it needs some window trim, but I'm not sure if shutters are the right answer. Are there any other options that will be consistent with the look of the house and help it look less bald?

The only thing I've done to the exterior is paint the door red. It started like this
and we've been starting some landscaping
; I feel the two windows on the left (that's the garage) stand out for looking plain.
I was planning on shutters; but, I've been reading some stuff on the web that has me convinced that even fake shutters should appear
to be able to cover the window. So, now I'm looking for other options and not finding much online. The landscaping will surely help but I was hoping the green had some suggestions for alternatives.
