This is the first of two posts I'll be writing to help you to measure your window and fit your window shutters. The measuring part is definitely the most important one so before writing anything about it I must advise you that it is much safer to get an expert to measure your window because if you get it wrong there’ll certainly be a river of tears. However, it is quite possible to do on your own and you may be able to save a few pounds!
Another important thing is that I don’t intent to write a manual on the subject this is just a guide to help you through the process. First thing to do is to identify the window type and whether it is in a recess or sash.
If it is a recess window follow the steps below:
1. Measure the exact size of the recess height and width in three places as illustrated by the red arrows.
