Since my husband is a carpenter I thought he was going to pop these in real quick. He installed one but the insert pieces that you add on to the sides were tough. Unfortunately, not the fault of the product but our window side sashes were not quite even on both sides. In other words, we had to put 3 strips on one side (not bad) but on other side 3 1/2 strips so there was a space. He went back to home depot and bought the faux wood strips (wide ones) and cut to fit. Now they look great. They dress up my sun room and I am so glad I put them in. They do not shut completely which is exactly the look I was going for.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by biggertuna good product quick to install wife says easy to clean
was very easy to install , went in quick used an electric screwgun but be sure to set your torque not to damage shutter mount . suggest level to get it straight. but please note the way the shutter operates (where the cut out for the shutter operation is my wife says it is upside down , please note it is on the wrong end of the shutter compared to the 30 plus year old ones it replaced ) they can be flipped but that is not easy and takes a little time . but love the look and easy clean up compared to wood shutters.

Final product looks good but a few details keep it from being a 5 star to me. One item that wasn't clear to me when I ordered was how the width is adjusted to fit each window. The unit ships with 1/8 inch thick strips that are stacked on each side to match opening width. These strips match the rest of the shutter in appearance exactly but the final install has a series of vertical lines on each side of the opening. The number of lines varies depending on the number of strips needed for your individual opening width. The knobs and latch mechanism also work OK but do not hold the closed "doors" flat. I've bought other hardware which use magnetic latches and it is better but not ideal. Overall looks good but I probably will not use these shutters again.

I was so happy to see I could get a pair of replacement shutters for our bathroom in color, size and material that would work well in a bathroom. Shutters arrived promptly but when the box was opened I was attacked by a foul chemical smelling odor. I took the shutters out of the box and let them air for a week but the smell was still extremely strong. The shutters were returned for a refund. Very disappointed.

Bought these because so many other people said these were a breeze to install. We must have received defective shutters, but after spending 30 min trying to line-up the shutters to install, we gave up.
We were in the final stages of a bathroom remodel and bought these to replace the wood shutters we had.
Just propping the shutters up to see how they looked we could not get the middle to meet straight unless tilting the outside mounting brackets unevenly, but thought maybe we didn't know what we were doing, so we gave them to our finishing carpenter with 20+ years of experience. They were a nightmare for him too! It took him well over an hour to install and he also said they just weren't crafted squarely. Either make the middle shutters meet evenly and sacrifice the side mounting bars crooked, or have a gap in the middle at the top or bottom. Granted, it was only a 1/4 gap, but I noticed it. Since it's our master bath and no guests will use, we decided to keep them.
Because my window sashes have vinyl on the inside for tilt-out windows, I could only hang these shutters as an outside mount. There are no pre-drilled holes for this option, so my carpenter had to line-up and measure for that. Also, the plastic screw covers were provided only for the inside mount. Once again, my carpenter had to drill two types of holes -- one for the screw then a larger hole so that we could use the screw covers.
Lastly, as you see in other customer's photos, the shutters do not open flat. They bend slightly open at the hinges so they constantly look open. As they always say...you get what you pay for.

Good traditional looking shutters. DIY installation was super easy. Spacers keep everything snug.
