Plantation shutters are almost equally important.
(02-05-2020, 02:01 AM)goodwood Wrote: How to measure 
The plantation shutters add a clean, classic look to any window. In fact, the goal should be to make them look like part of a window.
But if they are a DIY addition to your home design, how is that possible? First, it's important to order from a top supplier like West Pier Blinds, but how do you measure
Plantation shutters are almost equally important.
Getting dimensions that accurately describe the shape of your window is essential for us to be able to make you a blind that fits your window perfectly.
From the tools you need to step-by-step instructions, we have a complete primer on how to measure under a plantation shutter.
Plantation shutters need measuring tools
The plantation shutters do provide a bit of headroom and maneuver, but the more precise the better. It's not like estimating whether a new piece of furniture is suitable for a room.
The measurement of indoor blinds requires precise and high-quality tools.
you need to:
A sturdy metal tape measure. When measuring a large window, cheap tapes may give them too much information and may give too long measurements.
Write down your size with a pen and paper. You don't have to use them, but our printable guide makes it easier for you to remember which measurements and reduces you
I forgot to measure it.
Frames cut from our website. Based on the two-dimensional description, it is difficult to see how the three-dimensional frame is placed on the window. So we give you template
Print, cut and stick to the window frame.
When measuring, fix the frame cuts in place with paint tape or tacky putty.
If you can't comfortably climb from the floor to the top of the window, use a ladder or stool. Safety is important even when measuring, so move the ladder instead of trying to stretch
Take a second measurement from the same location.
If the window is particularly large or the ground is particularly high, you may need someone to help you size it. Make sure they know to measure from the other side of the cut
When you read the other end of the tape.
When you measure the window, be sure to clamp the strap in the middle to prevent it from sagging.
Decisions before plantation blinds measurement
Obviously, there are many configurations for windows. One of the lovely things about indoor blinds is that they can adapt to almost any situation.
Would you like a full height shutter or other configuration?
Full-height blinds are a classic and appealing choice. Because the shutter slats can be opened to let light and fresh air into your space, they allow full control. Similarly, they can
Turn it on or off completely to keep your privacy.
There may be situations-such as a street-facing window-when the top opens, you want the bottom of the shutters to close. Cafe or layer of shutters
Probably the best option.
For more information, see these shutter type guides.
Are your blinds built in or out?
If your window is recessed, we recommend that you choose an interior installation. (The groove is the difference between the wall plane and the window surface.)
In these cases, the frame is pre-drilled, allowing the frame to drill into the sides of the window groove.
If installed outdoors, is the shutter frame connected to a wall or window frame?
This decision depends partly on the material of the window frames and walls, and partly on aesthetics. If you need help deciding, please feel free to contact us.
Either way, it will have a major impact on how you measure your figure.
What size Louvre do you want?
The shutter slats of the West Pier Plantation shutters come in four sizes: 64mm, 76mm, 89mm, and 114mm. The size of the slats will have a significant impact on the look and function of your

indoor blinds.
But they also affect how big a frame you need to install external shutters. The frame also needs to be deep enough to keep the blinds far enough from the window, so
Any handle has proper clearance.
How far do you want to put your interior frame in the recess of the window?
Indoor blinds can be installed so that when they are closed, there is a smooth plane and wall surrounding the window. They can also be placed between walls and windows
Or very close to the window.
When making this decision, be sure to take into account any window handles and other window hardware.
When measuring, pay attention to placing the frame cuts at the appropriate depth. The size of the window notches can vary at different depths, enough to affect your
The blinds should be.
Special tips for cafe or floor to floor blind measurement
In some cases, you may not want to use a full-height shutter for your window. Cafe shutters and layer-by-layer shutters are a great solution for these windows.
The important thing to keep in mind when measuring these configurations is that you want the shutter at the bottom to cover any middle portion of the horizontally divided window. this
i have also just learnt a new way of cooking meat;

1.) light a pile of mesquite wood (actual wood chunks) on fire.
2.) let wood burn down for 20 minutes.
3.) close lid and vents to smolder fire.
4.) put meat directly on coals. 
5.) cook until desired internal temp (just short of preferred temp, it will continue to cook while resting).
6.) eat the best meat you have ever eaten in your whole fucking life. 

this works best for fattier steaks like rib eyes and such, the fat gets charred and holds just a hint of the wood smoke.
