Should My Cleveland Home Use an Inside Shutter Mount or Outside Shutter Mount?
During your in-home shutter consultation, you’ll need to decide how your plantatation shutters are installed. You could choose an inside mount, which sits just inside the window recess. Or you can install an outside mount, where your shutter frame is attached outside the window ingress and is hidden by decorative trim.
Sometimes the choice of an inside mount or outside mount is controlled by your window type. But sometimes the choice is yours to match your design palatte. So, when should you install an inside or an outside mount?
When You Should Install an Inside Mount in Your Cleveland Home
If your window can take an inside mount, the option for this frame option is mostly cosmetic. However, windows that don’t have fairly square corners may want to use with a Z-frame. The overhang on a Z-frame will cover the window’s imperfections. The Z-frame is also wonderful for windows that can tilt. L-frames function best when your window has decorative trim or you want to have a minimalist look for your window.
When You Should Utilize An Outside Mount in Your Cleveland Home
If your windows are hollow and lack a thick frame, you will have to install an outside mount. They also are helpful when you need additional decorative trim around the window to help it pop a little more. Many specialty windows with uncommon window frames, like arches or ovals, will require an outside mount, as will shutter treatments for french and patio doors.
