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 38mm

D) Beaded Z Frame 31mm

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

Customer Reviews

Recommended to me by a friend and I would highly recommend Plantation Shutters to anyone else who is looking to get shutters installed. Super helpful service from the whole team at Plantation Shutters. From initially measuring up while I was abroad with work, to adjusting my order when I had changed my mind and the top-quality installation. Most importantly, the customer service and transparency has been great. I placed this order on 4th Feb (just as COVID-19 was spreading to Europe). The team were in regular contact throughout and still delivered on time - even a global pandemic could not derail them! Impressive stuff! Thanks again!!
