It’s Shutter Week!

gazebo and hen house
I love the shutters added to this chicken coop in Atlanta.

Shutter week—kind of like shark week, but much safer.

Shutters can add warmth and elegance to your home. Choose shutter shapes and sizes that could cover your windows (even if they are just there for looks). Adding shutter hardware like hinges and shutter dogs will also give your shutters a ‘functional’ look.

Add Old shutters to give a structure charm and character as in the chicken coop featured in the first photo. You can run the shutter boards vertically or horizontally—whatever best defines the style of your home.

Shutters can provide privacy or simply add color to your front entry. The welcoming use of shutters adds curb appeal and structure to your architecture.

Have a look at these examples and think about adding shutters to your home or garden structure.
