What a great paint job and color. What a transformation, it looks really good. I'm not sure shutters will add a lot to it.... Do you have an old picture of the house with the shutters so we can see what they look like and where you had them before you reinstall them? I think gutters and downspouts should match the siding so you don't see them. They aren't architectural elements that you want to bring attention to. I'm thinking a deep red for the door...hopefully one of the pros on here will find just the right color for it.

Thank you!! I've never asked for help on houzz so I'm hoping I get some feed back. Here's a picture of it before during construction. We even restructured the front porch. It had arcs to it. I can't find a picture of it before. You might be able to envision the shutters. Can I even buy gutters the color of the house….I know I don't want to paint the gutters.

White gutters will get streaked with dirt. I recommend matching gutter color to roof color. Typical aluminum gutters come in a dozen or so colors, usually an easy match to a roof or popular siding color.

Wow, good work on the front porch. OK, I can see enough of the shutters to see that they were not really the right size for your windows. To look right shutter need to look like they could possibly be functional and cover the window if they actually were to close. I will put a call out to a pro here on houzz who has a great article about shutters that you could read. As far as the gutters, talk to a contractor, most of them have multiple colors that coordinate with siding. They might have something close to your grey. I think the gutters themselves would look best white like the horizontal trim, but the downspouts can be grey. They can be painted... Paint on our downspouts lasted years without chipping.

Your house looks great! How about matching the gutters to the soffit and siding? They won't stick out so much. I love black shutters they'll look classic. You could do either a black or red door.

Denita, if you're around can you attach a link to the good shutter article? Also any advise on the gutter /downspout and door color?
