Should shutters go on all Windows?

Don't feel you have to put shutters on every window. It's better to have some windows without shutters than to put them on windows that are too wide for them. Don't use a shutter on one side of a window where a door or the corner of the house prevents you from adding its mate.

Considering this, are window shutters out of style?

The clear answer is 'Yes'! Plantation shutters are a popular and subtle window fashion for a good reason. They work best with any interior design that enhances the overall beauty and functionality of your home.

Additionally, where should shutters be placed? In most cases, the height of decorative shutter that is most appropriate is from the top to the bottom of the window trim. If there is a sill at the bottom of the window and you are installing vinyl shutters, it is important to leave a gap of at least 1/4 inch to allow the vinyl material to expand and contract.

Moreover, should all windows match?

Match designs in different window types. Most window manufacturers have consistent materials, designs, colors and other options across window styles. Although it's not necessary for every window to have the same materials or design, select similar or complementary options for all window types to create a cohesive look.

Why do windows have shutters?

Shutters may be employed for a variety of reasons, including controlling the amount of sunlight that enters a room, to provide privacy, security, to protect against weather or unwanted intrusion or damage and to enhance the aesthetics of a building.
