2 Determine the Size and shape of the shutters.

Shutters can be built any size depending on the size of the window, the space around the window, and the funcionality of the shutter.  Many decoritive shutters are built narrower then the actual window due to the space surounding the shutter, walls, corners, etc.  For functioning shutters they must be measured carfully to fit the window frame when closed. 

For rectangulat shutters generally the height is the same as the inside of the window frame and the width is 1/2 the wideth of the window frame.

For Curved windows, you will need to measure the height at the center of the curve in the middle of the window and he height at the bottom of the curve  on the side of the window.

 

        

                                              


3. Determine the number of vertical boards and the number of horizontal battens.

Vertical boards can range from 2" to 7" thick and you will want to consider the overal width of your shutter when deciding how many vertical boards.

The horizontal battens are generally 3.5" wide.  Most Shutters have two or sometimes three for tallers shutters. 

A cross batten can also be added if desired for style.


4. Mounting options.

For decorative shutters they can be mounted directly to the walls or mounted with functioning shutter hinges.  Even if the shutters are mounted permanently open using the shutter hinges gives it a more rustic authentic look.


5. Additional shutter options

Make it personal and custom.  Shutters can be built to fit any style.  Add decorative bolts, dororative strap hinges, or cut out shapes to customize.  Shutters can be unfinished, stianed any tone or painted.
