Feature wall

Hello all, I am looking at turning my sunroom into a dining room and a bedroom. To do that I need to take out two large windows, approx 5x5ft. The exterior house is plaster and would be impossible to match and I dont want to redo the entire exterior so I am looking for options on what I could do with the space that used to have the windows. The space is in the back of the house on an acreage and there will be a patio in that area. So far all I can think of is fake shutters. ANyone else have any ideas?

How about a water feature, like one of the Asian style water walls where the water flows down over stone or the like.

Another option would be a vertical planter, which is a series of small angled cubbies, each of which gets a plant.

Matching or complementary stone mosaics....

Welcome to the forums!

A pic or two showing that portion of the exterior might bring more suggestions - http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...your-post.html

And the windows need to be removed in the first place why?

The spot where I need to put the wall runs right into the middle of one window. The windows are only single pane and offer very little as far as heat retention. The other two large windows will have to be replaced.Name:  20150917_111913.jpg

I couldn't get a good view of the stucco but what makes you think a plasterer wouldn't be able to match the current stucco?

Perfectly to match a texture is like trying to match the other guy's writing. However this is a common texture And easily replicated usually so closely that only the owner and the plasterer know it is there. The color might not match but a coat of paint on the whole wall will fix that.
