Shutter design is a process. At Villa Blind and Shutter we call choosing from the many options a Shutter Design Process, because we take you literally through every choice available and offer suggestions for your particular Window opening. Every house is different.
Choosing the right frame is one of your most important choices. Today I want to explain the Frame we recommend when you have beautiful window casings on your window, and want the shutter to be inside of those beautiful casings.
The solution is a Hang Strip, as shown below. See the view from the front photo., looks great. No frame at all showing. Many dealers suggest simply hinging directly to the window jamb and utilizing a light block directly behind the panels. That works if the window opening is perfectly square. But using the Hang strips to hinge from offers a better solution because you can make adjustments for those out of square window openings.
