Should My Destin Home Install an Inside Shutter Mount or Outside Shutter Mount?
At your free shutter consultation, you’ll have to decide how your plantatation shutters are installed. You could select an inside mount, which sits right inside the window recess. Or you can use an outside mount, where your shutter frame is affixed outside the window ingress and is covered by decorative trim.
Many times 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 scheme. So, when should you install an inside or an outside mount?
When You Should Install an Inside Mount in Your Destin Home
If your window can take an inside mount, the decision for this frame option is mainly cosmetic. However, windows that aren’t evenly squared may want to use with a Z-frame. The overhang on a Z-frame will hide the imperfections of the windows. The Z-frame is also great for windows that can tilt. L-frames work best if your window currently has decorative trim or you want to maintain a moderate look for your window.
When You Should Install An Outside Mount in Your Destin Home
If your windows are flat and lack a deep frame, you will have to install an outside mount. They also are nice when you need additional decorative trim around the window to make it pop a little more. Many unique windows with uncommon window frames, like ovals or arches, will require an outside mount, as well as plantation shutters for patio and french doors.
