Measuring for a Wooden Shutter

October 17, 2012

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!
