house exterior help needed

Ok, y’all. We need to jazz up the exterior of our house. Foundation has been poured, so can’t change porch so please do not suggest that. We’re already planning on doing shutters and taller windows for sure. I’m wondering about the porch. Should we raise the pitch of the porch and add a false dormer on either side? OR…make the porch roof extend flat, and put a false gable over? Pictures attached for reference…I like false gables more, but I’m not sure it’ll be as impactful as dormers. Or, should we just raise the porch pitch and call it good? Curious if there’s a huge cost difference between the two, as well.
