We have finally completed the interior of our new home (lots of DIY). Since spring is coming soon, I have been looking at the exterior trying to decide what kind of landscaping and if to add shutters. I have been told by a couple of people that shutters make a home look smaller...is that true? This house is only 2200 sq ft and I don't want to make it look any smaller. What is your opinion? If you think we should add shutters, what type & color? This home is located on 44 acres of land out in the country.
