step 3

Select a mount option:

Learn more about mount

Mount refers to whether the shutter frame will be mounted within the window frame (inside mount) or on the wall surrounding the window (outside mount).

Different frame styles are available for inside or outside mount.  For inside mount shutters, enter the measurement of the window.  Note: A "square" window is required for inside mount shutters, meaning the window must have perfect right angles.  Measure diagonally (upper left to lower right, then upper right to lower left); if the measurements differ by more than 1/2", your window is not square enough for an inside mount.

Generally, outside-mount shutters are the easiest to install.  Note: For outside mount, you must supply the frame to frame measurement (window measurement plus additional space for the frame as directed for the frame style you are ordering).

Inside

Inside

?

Inside mount blinds will fit within the window casing for a clean, custom look.  Enter the actual size of your window casing, NOT the size of your old blind.  We will make the necessary deductions to make the blind fit properly.  Make sure your window meets the minimum inside mount specifications, or flush mount specifications if desired.

?

Outside mount blinds will be installed on the wall above the window, covering the window entirely.  Enter the size you want the finished product to be, including the desired overlap beyond the window.  The ordered height will include the hardware for blinds and shades.  The width of the headrail may be slightly wider than the ordered width to accomodate operating controls and valance returns.  The outside mount option is required if your window is not deep enough to install the blind as an inside mount.

Existing Window Sills:

If you have a protruding window sill, certain shutter options and configurations are not available.  These options are automatically removed from selection if "yes" is answered for this question.  This question will help guide you through the shutter ordering process to get the perfect shutter for your window.

Existing Window Molding:

Window molding (also known as window trim) is a decorative fixture found around some windows.  If you want this molding to remain visible, you should answer "yes" to this question, and select an inside mount shutter.  If you do not wish the molding to be visible, and do not want to remove the molding, answer "yes" to this question and select an outside mount shutter; if you plan on removing the molding, answer "no" and select either an inside or outside mount shutter.  If there is no molding, simply answer "no" and select either an inside or outside mount shutter.  See the shutter measure and order guide for additional information.

Treatment Existing Sill

Treatment Existing Sill

To best configure your shutter, please tell us about your existing window.

1.  Do you have a protruding window sill that you are not going to remove?

2.  Do you have window molding/trim that you are not going to remove?

step 6

Select a frame option:

Learn more about frames

The shutter frame is the outside edge that attaches to your window or wall; the shutter panels in turn attach to the frame.  The type of frame selected is dependent on the function and style desired; some frame styles double as decorative molding, others are less noticeable, while others provide extra depth to help clear window handles and other obstructions.  Please make sure you have answered the questions regarding your existing window before selecting a frame style.  These questions will help match the appropriate frame to your window.  Please review our shutter measure and order guide for more information.

Mounting Strip with Light Blocks

Mounting Strip with Light Blocks

?

Outside mount frame with a rounded decorative edge that is best suited for windows without trim.  Casing frames have the easist installation with pre-drilled screw holes, simple alignment, and little or no finish work.  Note: When measuring, add 2 5/8" to each side of your window opening for proper fit; otherwise frame will be made too small.

?

Outside mount frame with a low-profile edge that is best suited for windows with trim that will not be removed but does not need to be visible; frame can mount either on top of trim or beyond it.  Also the best frame choice for windows with window cranks or other obstructions, or where sill depth is minimal.  Predrilled screw holes make installation easy; some finish work may be required.  Note: When measuring, add 1 3/8" to each side of your window opening for proper fit; otherwise frame will be made too small.

?

Inside mount frame has two mounting strips on the side that sit behind the shutter panel.  Separate light blocks can be installed to prevent light seepage at the top and bottom of the window.  Best suited for windows where there is existing window trim or where no decorative frame is desired.  Windows must be 'square'.  Hang strips require basic drilling of screw holes for easy installation.  Provide window size measurement when ordering.

?

Inside mount frame with moderate decorative overlap onto wall.  Best suited for window without existing trim, where a decorative frame is desired.  Windows must be 'square'.  Screw holes are pre-drilled; some finishing work may be required.  Provide window size measurement when ordering.

step 7

Select a tilt option:

Learn more about tilt

The position (and type of mechanism, if applicable) of the control that tilts the slats of the blind open and closed.  It is usually most convenient to have the tilt control and the lift control on opposite sides of the blind.

step 8

Select a frame sides option:

Learn more about frame sides

Number of frame sides that will attach to the shutter.

2 Sides

2 Sides

?

Select the 2-Sides option if using mounting strips; or more rarely used for cafe-style shutters on a window with a protruding sill.

?

For windows with a protruding sill.  The bottom of each frame side will be finished flat to sit on the sill.  Not available with mounting strip.

?

Most typical selection - provides a complete finished look and maximum stability.  Not available with mounting strip.

step 9

Select a number of panels option:

Learn more about panels

For each type of shutter you will need to specify how the shutters will attach to the frame and to each other.  When looking at the shutter from inside the home the folds are listed from Left to Right.  L or R designates the side the hinges are located.  For example "LLTRR" means the left two panels are hinged to each other on the left and the right two shutters are hinged to each other on the right hand side; the panel sections are separated by a T Post.  If you have any questions, call us toll-free at 1 (877) 702-5463 and speak with one of our knowledgeable sales staff or read our shutter guide for additional details on panel folds.

step 10

Select a divider rail option:

Learn more about divider rail

Horizontal section of the shutter frame that adds style and provides strength to longer shutters (required above a certain height).  The divider rail separates the louvers into two sections which will operate independently, allowing for greater light control.  The default placement for the divider rail is the center of the panel.  It can also be customized to any position, for example, in order to have the divider rails at the same height on the wall where there are shutters in the same room of varying heights.  See the shutter measure and order guide for additional information.

No divider rail

No divider rail

?

Horizontal section of the shutter frame that adds style and provides strength to longer shutters (required on shutters over 60" in height).  The divider rail separates the louvers into two sections which will operate independently, allowing for greater light control.  Default location is the center of the frame, but can also be customized to match other windows of different heights (specified height may be modified up to 1 1/2" due to louver placement).

?

You may position the divider rail at a custom height, typically to create a uniform look for windows of varying heights in the same room.  Position is specified as a measurement from the bottom of the shutter frame to the desired center of the divider rail.  Actual positioning may vary 1 1/2" due to louver placement.

step 11

Select a hinge color option:

Learn more about hinge color

Shutter panels are affixed to the frame with hinges that can be color-coordinated to shutter color, or of a different color to match other hardware in the home or to provide a decorative accent.
