How to Measure Your Windows for Shutters

Adding shutters to your windows is a perfect way to personalize and revamp your Los Angeles home. However, before you choose the perfect shutters or jump in and start designing, it's crucial to accurately measure your windows to ensure a proper fit.

Let Shutters and More guide you through the process of measuring your windows for shutters, helping you make an informed decision when it comes to selecting the right window treatments.


Gather the Necessary Tools

Before you start measuring, make sure you have all the right tools; you’ll need a pencil, a notepad to record your measurements, and a tape measure. Having these on hand will streamline the process and make it easier to create custom shutters with our in-house team.


Measure the Width

Begin by measuring the width of each window opening. If you have more than one window, measure each one separately, as they may have slightly different dimensions. Measure the width at three different points: the top, the middle, and the bottom of the window frame. Take note of the smallest measurement, as this will ensure a snug fit for your shutters.


Measure the Height

Next, measure the height of your window. Again, measure at the same three different points — at the left, center, and right of the window frame. Record the smallest measurement, as this will determine the overall height of your shutters and may be used when creating your exterior or interior window shutters.


Consider Additional Measurements

Depending on the style of shutters you choose, there may be additional measurements to consider. For example, if you're opting for full-height shutters, measure the distance from the top of the window opening to the floor. This will help ensure that the shutters cover the entire window and provide a seamless look.
