How to fit shutters to bay windows
How shutters are fitted to bay windows depends on a couple of factors.
First, there’s the type of window to consider.
When fitting shutters to UPVC bay windows (both double glazing and triple glazing), it’s not advisable to attach the shutter frame directly to the window frames.
Instead, shutters fitted on UPVC windows will generally be mounted in the recess around the window.
This way, your window frames go untouched, and there are no concerns about invalidating any warranty you may have on new windows.
Secondly, there’s the type of shutters you’re installing.
On smaller windows, shutters will generally be fixed to each window unit – with separate shutters for each of the angled sections.
Again, in this case, a dedicated frame will be constructed to match the surroundings and allow each hinged shutter to be opened independently.
However, for larger bay windows, you may find that bi-fold sliding shutters are a better option.
Track-mounted plantation shutters can be fully retracted, allowing complete access to your windows.
When fully opened, track shutters will let you access all your window’s security features and let more light into your room.
