Although planting shutters can be attached to the outside of the windows, many people prefer to install them indoors. When installed, you can open and close as desired. They are designed to allow light to pour and regulate the free flow of air in the house. These shutters are also called blinds and can be purchased at any plantation shutter company. They are available in a wide range of colours, sizes, shapes and prices.
When buying the planting shutters they are, articulated and prefabricated which are easy to install. There are some that are made with holes in which the screws have to be wound to facilitate installation.
1. Measures - make sure you have the appropriate measures on you when you go to buy plantation shutters. You should consider a horizontal measurement of the top, middle and bottom, as well as the greatest extent. The next measure is the length of the window sill that must be marked with a pencil stain. There are some plantation shutter company which will send their technicians to do the measurements.
2. Supports - this is what must be installed inside the window. You should also think about the outer frame. You will need a wooden chock to help the shutter stay in position. Because most planting shutters have pre-drilled holes, you do not have to worry about drilling them into the brackets to secure the shutters.
3. Place your shutters - after you have the fixing strips in place, you want to look carefully to make sure they are in alignment. Add one side, left or right, then on the other side. Once you screw them in place, make sure everything is correct and properly aligned as well as the screws tight too.
