Using the wrong sized shutters
You have to remember that shutters are installed to create an impact on the appearance of your house. It has been around for centuries now but through time the method with which they are installed and the look itself changed. The method of choosing shutters has changed as well with some no longer giving regard to the importance of sizing when it comes to its installation. If you do not want that kind of look to affect the appearance of your homes, you should make sure you choose the right-sized shutters to fit into that window of yours.
Specifically, you have to give regard to the shutter's height and width to avoid problems with wrongly-sized shutters. You have to measure the width from the inside of the window framing or casing. In this case, each shutter has to have a width of ½ the size of the window's inner frame so that when you have to close them, you will get that perfect fit.
Using the wrong shape for your shutters
If you try observing some homes in the neighbourhood, you will come across those that have installed rectangular-shaped shutters on an arch-shaped window. There is a terrible mismatch in here and it will really look awkward. You have to remember that you have to choose the shape of the shutter that is the same shape as those of your windows. Just imagine your homes with shutters that are not just oversized but are also overwhelming in the sense that they already take too much attention from passersby. It follows then that if you want this problem fixed then you have to choose the right shutter shape that matches your window.
Some of you will have that attitude of considering installing shutters on your own most especially if you have already seen the right fit and the right shape for your shutters. Some of you may commit the mistake of installing the shutter directly on your house's facade. Proper installation dictates, however, that you should make sure that the shutters are mounted directly atop of the window's framing or casing, just right next to the window's opening. If you cannot commit to that kind of installation then you have to ask somebody else to fix this error.
