That's a thought.

After a literal cut and paste, albeit with no paste...

The windows centered:

With trim or shutter panels:

I'll try it your way as well.

This is what you get when you work without plans!

Actually, Eddie, centered looks pretty good, even without the faux shutters.

I think the pointy end overhanging would bug me more than having it centered:

IMHO centered and faux shutters....or.... have them cut the glass on the triangle window to make it the same length as the rectangle and then center it. Faux shutters will take care of the outside view, the inside one might still drive you nutz.

I would center the big windows over the door and get rid of the triangle window.

Well, that window is about our only concession to a custom look, and I like how it adds airiness to the upstairs office.

So, we’re keeping it and will minimize the mismatch as best we can.
