Mounting Options

There are a variety of mounting options and framing styles available for our shutters - which one to use will depend entirely on the type of windows you have in your home. Explore our most popular framing styles.

Our measurers will advise on the appropriate choice when they come to do a site visit or for supply only orders, our sales team can guide you towards the best option to use.


Shutters are installed on the inside of the recess opening as shown in diagrams A, B, C, D, E.1 and E.2. This requires sufficient depth for slat clearance (the bigger the slat, the bigger the depth required) and clearance for handles must also be taken into account.

Shutters will fold back against the inside of the recess if mounted as per B and E.2 (although they may still protrude further than the recess, depending on recess depth and size of panels). If mounted on the front edge of the recess as per options A, C, D and E.1 shutters will fold back against the walls on either side of the window.

A) Deep Plain L Frame 60mm

B) Vintage L Frame 46mm

C) Deep Bullnose Z Frame 60mm

D) Beaded Z Frame 46mm

E.1) Double Insert L Frame 50mm

E.2) Double Insert L Frame 60mm


Shutters are fixed onto the wall outside of the recess opening as shown in diagrams F & G.

F) Camber Deco Frame 50mm

G) Vintage L Frame 46mm


On a sash window, we normally mount the frame just inside the architrave as shown in H.

The above frame depths are our minimum, other depths are available to accommodate wide slats or providing handles. For further information and pricing, please contact our sales team on 020 8871 9222 or email us your enquiries.

I love my new blinds. They are high quality, look beautiful and were at the most competitive price. The fitters were also very polite and efficient.

Plantation shutters visited my flat 20 January 2022 to measure, discuss slat size and material, and give me a free estimate which I was happy with.
