Advice for Adding Shutters to Brick Ranch Home?

Good Questions

Q: My husband and I bought a 1960's ranch style house (larger photo below) last year and have been slowly fixing it up (inside and out). We have done basic landscaping and built a sidewalk and now I want to install some shutters. My questions are: What should I do about the last small window next to the electrical meter? Should I leave the window with one shutter or no shutter at all? What color do you think I should go with? (I was thinking black)…

Pin it button big

Also the window in the middle....Should I have the same length shutters as the big one or should I have shutters that frame the window exactly?
