Good news! Plantation shutters can be installed on any window, regardless of its size or shape. However, there are two different methods you need to consider depending on the structure of your windows: 

  1. Frame Mounted Shutters—These are installed on the wall frame surrounding the window and close over the entire surface of the window opening.
  2. Inside Mounted Shutters—These are installed inside the window frame and close over the glass.

The type of mount you choose will depend on your window configuration, so it’s important to determine which mounting option is suitable for your windows before you begin the installation process.

Do Plantation Shutters Need a Frame?

No, plantation shutters don’t need a frame. However, it is recommended that you use one to ensure a secure fit and easy installation. A shutter frame will provide additional support for your shutters as well as an attractive finish to enhance the overall look of your window treatment.
