How to Measure Windows for Shutters

What you will need

Pencil/Pen

Paper

Measuring Tape

How would you like to install the shutters ?

Inside the window frame
OR
Outside the window frame
1.  If you’re installing inside the window frame:

Width: Measure the inside of the window frame from left to right in 3 different places and use the smallest measurement.

Height: Measure the inside of the window frame from top to bottom in 3 different places and use the smallest measurement.

Depth required: You’ll also need to check the measurement from the window or window handles to the front of the window frame, to ensure there is enough room for the shutters to operate freely. See table below.

Diagonal: Measure from bottom left corner to the top right corner and compare this to the measurement from the top left corner to the bottom right corner.  If the measurements vary too much, your window is out of square and this will affect whether your panels will fit into the window frame. Please discuss this with a sales consultant prior to placing your order. Using a Z frame can compensate for this type of window.

IMPORTANT: We take deductions so the shutters fit neatly inside your window frame.

 

 

 

 

2.  If you’re installing outside the window frame:

Width: Measure the exact width of the area you would like the shutters or shutters and frame to cover. We recommend the shutters overlap the window by at least 50mm on each edge. If you have an architrave we recommend measuring from outside of architrave to outside of architrave.

Height: Measure the exact height of the area you would like the shutters or shutters and frame to cover. We recommend the shutters overlap the window by at least 50mm on each edge. If you have an architrave we recommend measuring from outside of architrave to outside of architrave.

Note: The shutters will be supplied at the exact sizes you provide.
