I was recently asked if I could supply diy shutters without frames, and I am always happy to do this if required. While the frames make fitting easy, there are times when using panels only is the right option.
In this case, the customer wanted to fit the shutter panels either side of a front door, so they would not be opened, and I have done this myself as part of a fitted service for another customer. They can assist in protecting privacy, but it’s important to make sure that if you want to adjust the louver blades you have clearance between the surface you fitting them to and the blades themselves.
Another instance in which I supplied diy shutters with panels only was for a window with a particularly spectacular view of a property that isn’t overlooked but is only used for weekends and holidays. In this case, the panels were held in place by magnets and removed when the property was occupied so as not to inhibit the view.
If you would prefer your diy shutters without a frame feel free to ask. You can always use the photo upload service so that I can view your windows to ensure this is possible or the best option for you, get started here.
