During your shutter consultation, you’ll need to decide how your plantatation shutters are installed. You could opt for an inside mount, which sits inside the window recess. Or you can utilize an outside mount, where your shutter frame is secured outside the window ingress and is hidden by decorative trim.
Oftentimes the decision of an inside mount or outside mount is dictated by your window type. But sometimes the choice is yours to match your design palatte. So, when should you use an inside or an outside mount?
When You Should Install an Inside Mount in Your Boston Home
If your window can take an inside mount, the choice for this type of frame is mostly cosmetic. However, windows that don’t have fairly square corners may want to stick with with a Z-frame. The overhang on a Z-frame will mask the imperfections of the windows. The Z-frame is also nice for windows that have a tilt functionality. L-frames work best if your window currently has decorative trim or you want to have a conservative look for your window.
When You Should Utilize An Outside Mount in Your Boston Home
If your windows are flat and lack a thick frame, you will have to install an outside mount. They also when you need additional decorative trim surrounding the window to make it stand out more more. Many unique windows with unusual window frames, like ovals or arches, will call for an outside mount, as will shutter treatments for patio and french doors.
