If you are considering having bay window shutters custom made, it is extremely recommended to have a professional take the measurements for you. It is also important that you never buy prefabricated blinds that you can buy in any home store. They never fit properly, and they look horrible in bay windows.
Bay windows are typically made up of three or four sections and naturally become a focal point in the home. Placing poorly fitting shutters on them will get noticed by everyone who walks through the door and will certainly distract from your beautiful décor.
Measuring for Bay Window Shutters is Tricky
You may think that you can handle measuring for your bay window shutters, but the process is a lot more complicated than you are likely anticipating.
You need to know the depth of the frame you are working with to even get started measuring, because the wrong depth won’t allow your louvers to open and close, but the wrong measurement won’t let the frame sit at the right angle.
Do your windows have hand cranks? If so, this will dictate the need for a deeper frame. You will need to know what type of windows you have, how much wall space there is and be aware of any frames around the windows that will affect measurements.
As you can see, this is a very complicated process. Fortunately for you, Danmer will take care of taking all your measurements — for free.
