I need you to help me decide on a shutter color or no shutters at all. Lately I’ve been thinking about adding shutters to the cabin. The stain color is a dark brown and I guess I’m just ready for a small change with a little color. If the snow ever quits in Michigan (yes we were hit by another storm last night) hubby is going to power wash the house and restrain it.
If the existing stain color comes off during the washing we are going to go with a lighter color but if it doesn’t strip it we will stain it again the same as it is now. That being said look over the mock-ups I did below and tell me which one appeals to you. My least favorite is the green and that’s just because every log home I see has a green roof and green shutter and it’s just been overdone in my opinion. Also take into consideration our roof color is brown, tan, and a rust mixture. I know it’s hard to tell the detail in the photo.
When you scroll all the way to the bottom I’ve included downloadable shutters for you to play with and add to your own homes photos. It’s a great way to see a color on your home before you buy.
To download the shutters below, just right click on each shutter and save it to your computer. Then head on over to whatever photo editing software you use, or even (PicMonkey) upload a photo of your home, create an overlay with a shutter, and resize it to fit your windows. Have fun trying the different shutter colors on your home.
