Design Your Shutters in 4 Easy Steps

  1. Choose Your Dimensions

Enter your width and height once you have measured according to our measuring guides for inside mount or outside mount.

Measuring Guides >>

  1. Choose Panels and Slats

This step lets you tell us more about the shutter configuration for each window opening. Step 1 gives us the overall dimensions of the width and height. In Step 2, you can tell us how many panels you would like covering that window, add a mid-rail, choose your slat size, and tilt rod.

  1. Choose a Color or Finish

This is where you will choose the paint or stain color, and hinge color. Order up to 4 free samples to find the best color and see/feel your selection in person.

  1. Choose Your Frame

In this last step, you will tell us if your frame is inside mount or outside mount and choose from our available frame styles.

You will also have an opportunity to leave any special notes in this section for any special requests or questions you would like to discuss when we call you to review the order details.

If you are ordering more than one shutter, be sure to assign a name to your shutter like “Kitchen Window” or “Master Bedroom Left Side” etc. so it is easier to identify your shutters when installing.
