DIY shutters are proving a popular option at the moment.
It’s are easier than you think to measure and fit shutters yourself. There is lots of online help, advice and videos to guide you through the do it yourself process.
Shutters can be fitted to most windows, they are designed to be screwed directly to the window frame. The shutters I supply come pre-fitted in their own frames. The frames have removable inserts around the edge that allow the frame to be screwed to the window. Inserts are then fitted back in the frame to cover up the screw holes.
If you have handles or plastic trim that sticks out from the window stopping the shutters fitting directly to it, you can fit spacer battens to space the shutter frame away from these protruding objects.
These battens can be cut and shaped to fit around most things. Tiles are not a problem either, both the battens and shutter frames can have cut outs in them so the frame fits around the tiles, very neat!
If you are thinking of the DIY plantation shutter option, I suggest registering on my website and uploading some photos of your windows so I can offer some advice.
