Should My Denver Home Install an Inside Shutter Mount or Outside Shutter Mount?
During your in-home shutter consultation, you’ll have to decide how your plantatation shutters are hung. You could select an inside mount, which sits just inside the window recess. Or you can install an outside mount, where your shutter frame is secured outside the window ingress and is hidden by decorative trim.
Sometimes the decision 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 utilize an inside or an outside mount?
When You Should Install an Inside Mount in Your Denver Home
If your window can use an inside mount, the decision for this type of frame is mostly cosmetic. However, windows that aren’t evenly squared may want to stay with with a Z-frame. The overhang on a Z-frame will hide the window’s imperfections. The Z-frame is also nice for windows that can tilt. L-frames perform best if your window already has decorative trim or you want to keep a minimalist look for your window.
When You Should Use An Outside Mount in Your Denver Home
If your windows are flat and lack a deep frame, you will have to install an outside mount. They also when you need additional decorative trim around the window to make it pop a little more. Many specialty windows with unusual window frames, like ovals or arches, will need an outside mount, as will plantation shutters for patio and french doors.
