Living in a climate that offers warm, sunny summer days makes for great front porch living. Whether you’re oceanfront, or just taking in the day, enjoying a peaceful moment on the front deck is exactly why porches were made – relaxation! The sun, a cool drink, and a slight breeze can make for a perfect afternoon, but there are elements that can make your front porch more inviting, not just for your afternoons, but also for guests or potential buyers if you’re looking to sell.

Great First Impression

Have you ever driven by a house and said, “Oh, look at that one. How pretty!” but it’s not immediately obvious what sets the home apart from others on the same street? First impressions are in the details, and adding hand-selected shutter hardware to the exterior of your home not only makes the house more aesthetically pleasing, but the house also takes on a customized look and feel. Enjoy the unique beauty of your front porch with shutter hardware that adds to the home’s character.

Shutter hardware can be elegantly curved, almost giving a romantic era feel to the home, or it can be sleek with straight lines, adding a modern feel to the house. Your personality can come to life with something as simple as shutter hardware. Check out these photos for inspiration.

Inexpensive Upgrades

The mere thought of a home improvement projects can start to drain your bank account, so a relatively inexpensive custom feature like shutter holdbacks will help beautify your home and make you fall in love with it all over again. Whether you’ve just purchased a home or want to give your well-worn house a facelift, beautiful S holdback hooks for exterior decorative shutters can create a warm space for your front porch living.

Stand Out From The Standard

New construction neighborhoods are unanimous for building homes that mirror each other. You can pick a slightly different shade of siding and add a two-car garage rather than a screened in porch, but you can never really escape the neighborhood “standard” look. One way to immediately make your home pop with character is to add functioning exterior shutters with original plate pintles. The shutter hardware helps frame your windows and allows your shutters to function properly rather than being nailed to the house siding.

Whether you’re relaxing in the Deep South or taking in a breeze from the ocean, front porch living has never looked better than with unique exterior shutter hardware. Enjoy your home even more with functioning shutters and beautifully sculpted shutter hinges, holdbacks, and plate pintles to add character to the home you love.
