The window guide is a new way to order DIY shutters. If your a first time shutter buyer, all you need to do is locate your window style and choose the window that best matches your own and enter your sizes. The layout, design and louvre size etc are all pre-selected for you. Each section only provides advice on the window you have selected, making the DIY process simple.
If you have lots of windows to order or they are all similar in design or style, then try the normal order form. All the options are dynamic and update as you proceed through each step making it impossible to order something you can’t have. You don’t have to remember what options or limitations there are, you will only be able to see what is available for each shutter type.
