No matter how much you loved your house when you bought it, eventually things start to look a little tired and the idea of a renovation takes hold and just won't let go. Unless your house was a custom build, or you were able to add upgrades when you built, chances are good that the problem is your rooms lack individuality.
One of the most overlooked, yet distinctive, elements of your home's exterior are the shutters. If you don't have them your house probably looks a little naked, and if they're the wrong color or style the house just looks off-balance. Choosing the right style and an updated color for your shutters provides a huge boost in curb appeal and value.
English architectural styles took the names of the reigning monarchs of the period--Elizabethan, Jacobean, Georgian, Regency (After George III was determined unfit to manage the burgeoning Empire, his son took over as Regent until he became George IV in 1820), Queen Anne, and so on.
