Measuring bay window shutters
Bays are perfect for shutters, so if you have bay windows, each panel of window will require a shutter. So in the two examples below, there will be three shutters, therefore three measurements for each bay window. Usually the two on each side of the bay are similar sizes but not always, and bays can contain several panels, not just three as these examples.
Measuring special shaped windows
We love a challenge and have been installing special shaped windows for years! Whether round or elongated, or arched as in the example below, please alwaysa take the maximum dimension. IE. in the arch, the height to the highest point. In a round window the full diameter.
