The five available frame types vary from modern flat frames to a more traditional crown molding style. Our favorite recommendation is the 2” Deco frame. It has an easy-to-use, stick-on decorative panel that hides the screws from view. It also ensures your interior window shutters will have a clean, finished look. And did we mention the multitude of configurations available? From a single panel on one side to two panels on both sides with a T-post in the middle, there’s a perfect fit for almost any window! Sustain your style for years to come with these chic window coverings, that can adjust the light intensity in any room by simply pushing the louvers up and down! Cast the morning light across the living room or direct the setting sun toward the ground during afternoon relaxation. Give your home the splash of rustic sophistication it's been needing with new custom plantation shutters!

- When considering an inside mount frame, you should also measure on the diagonal (from corner to corner) each way. If the measurements are off more than 1/2", you should consider ordering an outside mount frame.
- If your windows tilt in, you should consider an outside mount frame. An inside mount frame will prevent you from opening your windows.
- Trim molding can affect the installation of your shutters. Ideally, not having trim molding works best. If your windows have trim molding, please click here to see another shutter option that would work best with your windows.
- If your louvers are loose and don't want to stay in place, each shutter panel has a tension screw on each side. Simply use a screwdriver to turn each tension screw a 1/4 of a turn. Do this on both sides of the panel.
- If you window has a sill then you need to choose the 4 Sided w/ Sill Frame option to ensure your shutters can be installed properly.
- A replacement louver is included with each shutter. This should be stored is a safe place, wrapped up and laid flat (so there will not be any warping) so you'll be able to fix your louver immediately in case of an accident and it'll match perfectly since they are produced at the same time as your shutter.
- 36" maximum width for single panel.
- Pre-drilled installation holes are strategically placed on all frames for accurate, quick and clean installation. Some assembly is required.
- Please note this product is not covered under our FIT Guarantee.
- To avoid light gaps around the frame, consider ordering an outside mount frame.
- When ordering outside mount shutters, please ensure you read our Measure & Install tab to ensure you are entering the correct measurements for your shutters.
- Shutters over 74" in height need to have a dividing rail.
- To avoid excess louver overlap, a minimum of 18" is required between divider rail and the top/bottom rail of the shutter.
- Shutters with a hidden tilt and height over 52" are required to have a dividing rail.
- When ordering adjacent shutters in the same room, to achieve a uniform appearance you must specify that all adjacent shutters and their divider rails be the same height.
