Expect premium, made-to-measure shutters that give you the widest possible choice available…all wrapped up in a truly timeless style statement, exactly as you’d pictured it.
Your choice of shutter material and style will influence the design options available to you, as well as the windows themselves.
In some instances you may be restricted by the architecture of your window recesses and the type of windows you have in place. A professional surveyor will consider all the factors, including the more obvious ones such as the whether your window opens inwards or outwards and how far your window handles protrude from the window.
Your plantation shutters will be fitted in one of the three ways:
This is possibly the most usual installation style. The shutter frame sits inside the hollow in your wall (the recess) and creates a frame surround. Plantation shutters are then situated within the frame and panels can be opened. However, they will not fold back flush against the wall. In our experience though, once you have window shutters fitted you will rarely open the panels, but just position the louvres to suit your mood.
Plantation shutters installed on the edge of recess generally sit flush with the wall facing the room. You may sacrifice seeing your window sill but your window shutters will look perfectly in place. The benefit of this installation style is the ability to fold the window shutters flush open against the walls, as long as there are no barriers such as furniture or architecture to prevent the shutters from operating as such. Frame options include a Z frame style which will provide an architectural architrave around the window.
If your window is flush with your wall, or there is too little depth of recess to place a shutter frame within it, then your plantation shutters will need to be installed outside the recess. This style looks equally stylish and again your window shutters will fold right back. Outside recess fits are also needed in most cases where windows open inwards.
The configuration of your windows and the location of the transom bar will influence the number of shutter panels you need. Plantation shutters look as stunning from the outside as the inside, and the panels can be lined up to your window frames for a completely uniform look. All inStyle shutters are made to measure, so you can be sure of a perfect fit.
