Choose color:

  • Daisy White, Off White, or Cream; normally it's best to match the trim or sill color.

Choose louver size :

  • 2 1/2" or 3 1/2"
  • The 2 1/2" size is more traditional, and better-suited for Colonial and Victorian styled homes.
  • The 3 1/2" size is more contemporary, but is perfectly fine in traditional homes. The larger the window, the more likely the 3 1/2" size is scaled better. But it is usually best NOT to mix sizes within your home.

Determine the configuration:

 

Determine if your window sill protrudes : Window Sill Protrudes
The bottom of your window has a sill that sticks out into your room. See illustrations below for images of a protruding and non protruding window sill.

  • For each of your windows see if you have a window sill that protrudes out into the room. This will determine how your shutter's frame is designed.

 

 

 

Determine your window depth & mount :

      

  • Window Depth
    Measure from the front edge of your drywall or front edge of trim surrounding your window opening back to the first obstruction. This could be a handcrank, security device, ledge, or the window itself. Note whether this distance is 1½" or more. If so, you can select an Inside Mount .
  • Mount
    Decide whether you want the shutter to mount recessed within your window opening, known as an " Inside Mount ", OR outside the window opening on the trim (if any) or directly on the wall, known as an " Outside Mount ". We usually recommend an Outside Mount , because windows are not normally perfectly square, and Outside Mount shutters are more forgiving. Also keep in mind that if you have less than 1½" of depth in the previous step it must be an Outside Mount .

 

Measure your windows (width & height):

  • Available for rectangular and square windows only
    (specialty shapes such as arch/angle tops not available).
  • Cafe shutters, sometimes called "half shutters" can also be made for you. They normally cover the bottom half of your window, but can be made at any height. Please specify the height of the cafe shutter , NOT the window height.

Determine if you need/want a divider rail :

  • Divider rails add strength to your shutters, and allow you to operate the top louvers independently from the bottom louvers . Note: Center line location of divider rails may vary up or down by a maximum of 1" (for 2 1/2" louver) and by 1 1/2" (on 3 1/2" louver).
