How to Measure Approximately


For the purposes of getting a quote and getting a recommendation on the type of shutter using our Design Centre it’s not crucial to have ‘exact’ measurements of your window. Approximate measurements will be fine for getting a ball park figure for the cost of shutters and what type of framing options suit your window.

To get your approximate measurements we recommend getting a metal measuring tape, paper and a pen to record your measurements.

Note: We do not recommend using a fabric measuring tape as the slack in the tape will make it inaccurate to measure width and height properly.

If you have a recess you can use your measuring tape to measure the width (left to right) and height (bottom to top) of window as per the photos below.

If you don’t have a recess or you’re not sure if you have a recess, measure the width and height of the window from the outside of an architrave (if you have one) bottom to top and left to right including the architrave.

Note: Once you’re finalising your order it is absolutely essential to have the correct measurements (including recess measurements) for each and every window in your order as each shutter we produce is custom made and unique to your window. If the measurements are not exact then your shutter will not fit your window.
