Interior Shutter Installation

Illustrated below are four (4) shutter installation methods. You may modify any of these by using either # 3 or # 4 hang strips for traditional style panels, or # 4 or # 5 hang strips for plantation style panels. The hang strips may be attached in any direction, and may be trimmed as desired.

The shutters are attached directly to the jamb of the window. Each hinge requires about 1/16".

The shutters are attached to a hang strip and the hang strip is attached to the window jamb with screws. You can use either # 3, # 4, or # 5 hang strips, turned in any direction, depending on your window opening and shutter style. Hang strips may be trimmed as needed. Each hinge requires about 1/16".

shutter panel installation

A hang strip on each side of the shutters attaches to the wall. The inside edge of the strip should be slightly beyond the window opening. This installation method is typically used when an inside installation is not possible or the opening is not square. It provides more space behind the shutter for louvers to rotate open. Each hinge requires about 1/16".

A hang strip on each side of the shutters attaches to a flat portion of the trim. The strip does not have to be located exactly as shown above, but may be located anywhere on the trim so long as there is enough flat surface. It is important to make certain the louvers can be rotated fully open. Each hinge requires about 1/16".

How To Determine Individual Shutter Panel Sizes to Order

Width:

  1. Measure the width of the area you want the shutters to cover (NOT including any trim strips).
  2. Divide this width by the number of panels you want across the window. This will give you the approximate width of each panel. Round this measurement up to the nearest 1/4 inch available panel size.
  3. 1/16" per hinge and 1/16" between panels without a hinge is necessary for clearance.
    So, panels may need to be trimmed to achieve a proper fit.

    Example:
      Window Width = 36-7/16"
      Divide by 4 (for 4 panels across) and round up to nearest 1/4"
    Occasionally a combination of different panel widths can be used.
     

    Order four (4) shutter panels 9-1/4" wide and trim to fit.
    Or, Order two (2) panels 9" and two (2) panels 9-1/4".
    - the total width of the panels will be slightly larger than the window width. However, by ordering different panel widths it will be necessary to only trim the two larger panels.

    OR
     
      Window Width = 47"
      Divide by 2 (for 2 panels across) and round up to nearest 1/4"
     

    Order two (2) shutter panels 23-1/2 " wide
    Panels may need to be trimmed slightly to achieve clearance.

Height:

  1. Measure the height of the area you want the shutters to cover.
  2. You may need to order the next larger panel size and trim the panel to fit. Up to 1" may be trimmed off the top and the bottom of each individual panel (a total of 2" per panel).
  3. For a two tier unit (panels across the top and bottom), combine individual panel heights as required.

TIPS:

Sketch out your window opening and label the width and height. Then, draw shutters over the window in the desired configuration. This will help you visualize the shutter unit and determine the appropriate sizes.
