    Exterior shutter ideas?

    I currently have fake shutters(i.e. non-functional) that are made of vinyl or some other plastic. One got blown off by a storm and I realized I just don't like the look of them. Never really paid that much attention to them until now. I don't see that I would need fully functioning shutters here(middle Tennessee), but I don't know if I should leave the front of the house bare or what. It's brick, by the way--basically traditional red mix, I guess. If I do replace them, I think I'd go with metal/heavier plastic since wood would require so much more care. I'm lazy...which leads me to believe I should just let the thunderstorms blow them off and hope they don't hit anybody. What would you guys suggest?

    For some reason, I don't like houses without shudders. I'd go up to the house and slap that person but my disgust won't let me within 10 yards of the offense.

    We'll lets see here Mint Jelly, you could take some pastel paint and paint pretty flowers all around the windows. How about making shutters out of roadkill skins and get a native american look? I'm just tryin' to help out.
