Be it louvred window shutters or something more solid, panels form an integral part of the setup. Although the focus is more on louvres, mounting configurations, materials and finish, another factor every homeowner should consider is the size of the panel for a particular window shutter. While there is no right answer, there are optimal choices you can make depending on the size of the panel you prefer for a hassle-free experience with your shutter installation and upkeep. In this blog, California Shutters, manufacturers of window shutters in Toronto, explore 3 such options/factors.
The first thing to consider is the type of material being used in the window shutter. Is it a heavier, more robust material? In that case, it is best to go for smaller panels, as larger panels in this case leave more room for damage and warping in the long run. Conversely, if you pick a light material, the panels can be as big as you want. Therefore, be sure to ask your shutter manufacturer about the material density before installing it.
Are you looking for single-fold or bi-fold panels? If it's the latter, the best choice once again is to stick to smaller panels. So for larger panels, it's always preferable to opt for the single-hung configuration.
Do you want more light to enter the room even with the shutters? Then you should consider large panels, as smaller panels have more solid areas separating the rails and frames, leading to more light obstruction.
Therefore, by keeping these 3 factors in mind, opting for the right panel for your window shutter is simple. All it takes is a little research and advice from the experts.
