Install Shutters

Horizon interior shutters install easily to each window for which they are custom designed. Individual shutter panels are fully assembled into units at the factory, so no trimming or fitting of parts is required. Since we make every interior shutter unit for a specific window opening, you can expect the best possible fit and installation.

Install Interior Shutters

All necessary hardware is included to install interior shutters. Complete instructions are sent with your order confirmation so you may review them prior to receiving your shutters. All you need to install shutters is an electric drill and conventional hand tools.

Traditional shutters and plantation shutters can be installed on either the inside or outside of the window opening. Review the measuring instructions to determine which mounting method is appropriate for your window.

Local shutter suppliers frequently claim that interior shutters can not be installed by anyone other than a "certified professional shutter installer." This type of statement is made to discourage a potential customer from seeking an alternative source, limiting competition.

"Are shutters too difficult to install by inexperienced homeowners?" The answer is "No." We have proven over 15 years of internet sales that homeowners can install interior Horizon shutters. We ship window shutters ready to install, provide detail instructions, and require minimal tools. If a homeowner is not confident in his or her ability to successfully install shutters in a window, any licensed handyman can easily accomplish the task.

I ordered two shutters and: 1. They shipped when they said they would. 2. The price was reasonable. 3. The quality was excellent. 4. They fit without any adjustment. 5. Installation instructions to install shutters were excellent. What more could you want of a vendor?
