How do you measure shutter height?
In this regard, how tall should shutters be?
Standard vinyl shutters are available in the following heights: 35", 39", 43", 47", 51", 55", 59", 63", 67", 71". It is generally recommend that you go with the closest height available. If your window height falls right between two standard heights, we recommend rounding up to the next available standard size.
One may also ask, what is the standard width of exterior shutters? 15 inches
In this regard, should shutters be longer than window?
The height of window shutters you should order is generally the actual height of the opening not counting the sill should you have one; however, many customers prefer to have the panels a little taller than the actual opening height. A couple of extra inches in height can be very attractive.
How do you measure for Bahama shutters?
- To determine shutter width, take the window sash width and divide by two. This number will determine the width of each shutter for that window. For Bahama type shutters do not divide by two.
- The shutter height is determined by the window sash height. For aesthetic mounts it is best to round to the nearest whole number.
