Can You Put Shutters On A Casement Window?

Yes. Plantation shutters on casement windows can never go wrong. Plantation shutters can be fitted to match how your casement window works, whether it swings from the top (called an “awning”), the bottom (called a “hopper”), or the sides.

Plantation shutters on casement windows provide privacy and keep out light and heat, yet also allow you to look out your window without ever having to open the shutters.

Casement windows are the most common casement windows found in homes that are over 100 years old. The “sash” of the window can be installed on either side of the top and bottom of the panes. They were popular because they were easier to clean than double-hung windows and they save space.

Plantation shutters are also known as “custom-made shutters” because each shutter is custom measured for your window size, brand name, or designer’s style and needs to be made for you, which takes about 2-4 weeks.

The bottom edge of a casement window is slightly curved and is between 2 1/2 and 3 inches from the floor when opened. The middle of a casement window is about 7 1/2 inches off the ground when opened.

If you want to install shutters on a casement window, be sure that the shutter panel will fit at least two inches below the bottom edge of the window when it is in the down position. You may also need to add 1/2 inch above this to account for any screws or hardware that needs to be installed.

If your casement windows have glass on them, then you can choose shutters that have full or half glass. The half-glass shutters are usually cheaper and therefore look a little sturdier, but they are not as heavy-duty as the other options.

Metal casement window frames are more durable and able to support any type of material than wooden frames can.

How Do You Measure For Window Shutters?

Window shutters are an important part of any home’s decoration. They add an element of privacy while allowing natural light to enter the room. There are a few things you need to keep in mind when measuring for window shutters:

  1. Make sure to measure from the top of the window frame to the bottom of the window shutter.
  2. Measure the width of the window shutter and multiply that number by 2. This is the total width of the shutter.
  3. Measure the height of the window shutter and multiply that number by 2. This is the total height of the shutter.
  4. Add the width and the height together to get the total amount of space that you need to measure for your window shutters.
  5. If the shutter is going to be a double or triple window shutter, add 1/2 inch to the width and height measurements to account for the hinge.
  6. Choose the shutter that will fit the space you have measured. Try to find a shutter that is the same width and height as your window. If the shutter is too wide or too tall, you can cut it to the correct size.
  7. Shutters can be bought with either glass or metal frames. The glass frames are usually less expensive, but the metal frames are stronger and can last longer.
  8. If you are buying a window shutter online, be sure to read the reviews before making your purchase. Some shutters can be difficult to install, so it is important to know if other people have had the same problem.
  9. Once you have your window shutter, be sure to clean the glass and the metal frame regularly. This will keep the shutters in good condition and look beautiful.
