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.

Okay no shutters. Keep coming with ideas. Landscaping ideas would help also!
