We have the fake shutters here: there was only one way to mount them
on the house -- as someone else mentioned, the wrong side is very
obvious! An no, if the shutters were to be hinged they would not
cover the windows. They're there for decoration only; on this house
not having them makes the exterior look boring!
BTW, there are at least two types of vinyl shutters: paintable and
not. Non-paintable shutters will not take the paint, or at least
latex paint: after it dries it peels right off!
