Need help with awkward exterior!!
August 20, 2013 in Design Dilemma
My husband and I recently purchased our home - the house has 2 side doors but no door visible from the street, giving it the look of a duplex. There are 2 large windows on the front of the home, but they are not centred and lack trim. Our current ideas are to trim out the windows in a contrasting white/dark trim, remove the 2 large trees, put in window boxes, add a gable roof over the current porch, and landscape. My question is mainly about the landscaping, although I would welcome any ideas on the exterior appearance of the home. We need help deciding what type of plants as well as height/groupings along the front of the house, especially between the 2 windows, in order to create a more balanced appearance. Any help is appreciated!! It is hard to tell in the photos, but the porch is on the right hand side of the home.
