Plantation shutters are a great way to add a touch of luxury to your home. One of the first steps in installing your blinds is to properly measure the window they are designed for. Plantation shutters can be expensive just because of their durability, energy conservation, and long-lasting feature, but they are worth it.

The measurement methods vary on the choice. It is also important to consider the backroom as this provides room for the blinds to be spaced and the cover to operate. Make sure there is room for hand cranks, molding, upholstery, and even the window itself.

Measure your windows diagonally in each direction. If the diagonal dimensions are different, your window is out of the box. The perceived square of the window will affect the type of frame and installation you need to choose for your plantation blinds.

On the inside of the drywall or wall where the planter cover will be installed, measure the height and cut it. It is important to consider whether the drywall or lining tapers further back into the window opening. 

Plantation covers are becoming a popular and effective way to give your home a sleek new look. They are functional and attractive.

Traditional plantation curtains have a fairly simple design. The horizontal bars at the top and bottom of the cover are called "rails". Some crop covers may also include one or more horizontal rails in the center of the cover dividing the plant cover into separate levels.
