Prices
Price

Plantation shutters are typically priced based on the overall area the plantation shutters will cover.

Average sized windows in a new home usually cover from 10 to 20 sq. ft. each. Prices for non-rectangular and specialty windows, e.g. arches, eyebrows, lever cutouts on doors, etc. may be extra.

Round up measurements

Note that companies who round up have an effective price that is a bit higher than the price per sq. ft. they list.

Frame mounting

Frames are the most popular method of mounting plantation shutters and consist of a shallow box that wraps around shutter panels like a picture frame. Shutter panels are mounted directly to the frame with hinges. Frames are usually 2" deep and 1" wide. They are mounted flat against your window trim. Advantages: Because the frame mounts directly to the trim, the overall appearance is more finished. With an accurate color match, each framed shutter should look like part of the window. Disadvantages: Frames protrude from windows 1/2-1" more than shutters on hanging strips.

Hanging strip mounting

Plantation shutter panels are typically not attached directly to a window with hinges but are instead attached to either hanging strips or frames. Both provide a surface for the shutter panels to mount to and both block light gaps, preventing direct sunlight from escaping around the edges of panels. Hanging strips are narrow strips of wood, 1"x1" is a common size, attached to the right and left jamb of the window. Panels are attached to the hanging strip with 'L' shaped, wrap-around hinges that suspends the shutter panel in front of the strips. When the panels are closed, the hanging strips are hardly visible.
