If you have decided to add a charming, inviting and beneficial focal point to your room with a wooden shutter, you are likely wondering how you should go about measuring for it. There are probably quite a few questions going through your mind too, such as:
- Do I measure on the outside of the window frame?
- Do I need measurements of the window pane itself?
- Should the blinds fall right at the window sill?
- How do I accommodate handles for crank windows?
Wooden Shutter Measurements Should be Taken by a Professional
If you are ordering a wooden shutter, then fit should be a primary concern. These window treatments will provide you with maximum privacy and light control, as long as they fit properly. If you have a handle for a crank window, a cutout in the blinds will need to be made. This is also true if you are buying for French doors.
To ensure that your shutters fit perfectly, the windows really need to be professionally measured. Of course, the last thing you probably want to do is pay a professional to come measure, right? Well, when you shop at Danmer, you don’t have to. We offer a free consultation so you can have peace-of-mind knowing that your shutters will fit perfectly!
Have you ever walked into an elegant room and just never felt welcomed? Sure, the host was nice and the space was exquisite, but it just felt “cold.” Now imagine how that same room would have felt if there were wooden shutters on the window. Chances are good that it would offer a very different vibe. Even the most utilitarian room can appear cozy with the right window treatments.

Many people get it set in their head that they need a wooden shutter for a window to really pull the room together, but are not prepared for the options they have to choose from. You may think you want a plantation shutter, but you may want to take a good look at our woven wood shades, and you may very well change your mind.
Wooden Shutter vs. Woven Wood Shutter
As you are likely already well aware, a traditional wooden shutter has individual pieces all fitted horizontally on some type of system that is open and closed to welcome or eliminate the light. These of course, are beautiful options that complement nearly any room.
If you are looking for something a little different though, our woven wood shades may be perfect. They are created from a combination of grass, bamboo and jute materials in an array of styles. We also offer a huge selection of shade colors, such as Bamboo Reeds Wheat, Calypso Spring, Monsoon Sand and Sunflower Gold, so there is sure to be a shade to complement your space beautifully.
Ina time when minimalist and contemporary styling seems to be a popular trend, many homes are beginning to feel a bit repetitive. Walking into a space that is actually inviting and calming is a breath of fresh air. This is the effect that wood shutters have on a space. They can be compared to having a swing on the porch and a lantern pole light in the front yard; they just make a house feel like a home.

Pros of Installing Wooden Shutters
Wooden shutters are a more classic choice. High quality wooden shutters will last for years and can easily complement a wide range of decorating styles. Wood Shutters can be custom stained to match the existing wood stains in a room, or painted.
Pros of Installing Synthetic Shutters
Synthetic shutters are a great choice for those looking to “green” their home. Synthetic shutters insulate up to 3 times greater than wood, lowering your heating and cooling costs. Synthetic shutters can be a great choice to install in a kitchen or bathroom, as there are some synthetic shutters available that are fire retardant and water resistant.
