Garden Shed Window Shutters

jenmurphySeptember 17, 2010

Hey there,

Just trying to figure out what size shutters to use for our garden shed window. It's an odd size, 33" tall and 50" wide, I'll probably have to order custom vinyl shutters. Everything I've read tells me to size shutters to appear functional, ie, the window's width is 50", so shutters should be 25". Problem being, it's a garden shed, it's not very big. A 50" window and 50"s of shutters will take up a lot of space on that exterior wall (of which I have plans for a hanging basket and a window box). Any ideas/suggestions?

I would not be concerned so much with the width most people use a standard width vinyl shutter be it 14", 15" or 16". Only the height is generally what people concern themselves with. I had sold probably 1000 pr of shutters and the only time we custom ordered for width was when they could not fit a standard width shutter on the wall(ie: corner or window or door close by)
