Boring House!

Can't decided on front door color and if I should add shutters to the windows. If shutters are a good idea what color to paint them?

PLEASE do not add shutters. I would paint the front door a shade lighter than the color shown at the base. Depending on how much you want to do, a new paintjob would do wonders as well as a entry hood or little roof above the front door.

Painting the door will help. Some landscaping will also make a huge difference.

I agree, no shutters. I like the idea of painting the door a shade lighter than the bottom color. Or you could do a bright color depending on your comfort level with that. Red, or chartreuse? Also a new path with lighting or a little patio out front. Love that big window!

Here is an example of split entry which is similar to your house.
