Just had siding done originally we did not want shutters but because the windows were supposed to be framed due to fascia boards against window. Feels something missing we now want to consider siding. I have seen shutters some measured from top to bottom or leave space at bottom look. Help..txs
White gutters & covers to replace old stuff???any suggestions on what is new out there?

Shutters will never look like they're supposed to close over the upstairs windows, so no to them there. If you are diligent with watering, you could use window boxes up there and just do shutters on the two lower ones. Biggest bang for little buck would be the removal of the clumpy shrubs and replacement with a new andscape. With Spring just a few months away, order plant catalogs and plan now for a spring installation. Here is one of my favorites. Cottage Gardens

This article will help. Shutters must always look like they function and cover the window they're with. http://www.lifeofanarchitect.com/residential-architecture-101-shutters/

Hi ism8392. For your particular house style, we would recommend properly fitted, panel style shutters. Shutters should measure out to half the size of the window. Feel free to use our Shutter Snapshot application. This will allow you to see what your shutters would look like before the actual installation.
