At the base of the gable, below the gable vent is that narrow slanted strip of "roof". What is that called? - My husband and I keep getting told it's called an eyebrow but that's not what our research shows and I'm trying to find out what it is so that we can make the right decisions for our house. Thanks. »
I love the uniform look when all the windows on the front of a home have plantation shutters. Great curb appeal!
If you want to soften the look of your shutters in some rooms, such as bedrooms, feel free to add drapes or a valance on top of your shutters. They'll give you all the sun control and privacy you need and leave you free to add whatever decorative treatments you like.
Do you have plantation shutters in your home? If so, have you added fabric treatments on top or do you like the look of shutters alone?
Greek porticoes had unique names depending on how many columns were used. This one is tetrastyle, meaning it has four columns. While porticoes are often seen on larger homes, they can also work well on smaller structures.
