DIY plantation shutters have become an easy option to install yourself.
The shutters come pre-fitted in their own outer shutter frame. All the hinges and magnets are pre-fitted on the shutter panels and outer frames so they easily fit together. The outer frames ends are pre-mitred and just clip together, then shutter panels simply fit within these frames.
The hinges are adjustable making the shutter panels adjustable within their frames and the magnets ensure the panels are held tightly closed. The outer frames have special removable insert strips that conceal all the screw heads when DIY fitting.
These strips are found in the front edge of the L frame allowing the frame and panels to be installed at the same time. This is important because it makes it very easy to line up the panels within the frame and then line up the frame within the window recess.
DIY plantation shutters can be ordered online, you can find measuring guides and fitting guides within the DIY section of the website along with how to videos.
This shutter kit can be adapted to fit bay windows and shaped windows. They key is in the measuring, if you get this right you know the shutters are going to fit.
