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.

Daughter represents Bali in Midwestern area and she was impressed with quality also.The only negative would be that there is not a latching hook included like the old wooden versions of these blinds.

I was skeptical at first about the price and purchase of these shutters. However, once I received them and my husband put them up with ease, I was not dissatisfied at all! They beat the expensive made to order styles. You won't be sorry if you purchase!

adorable shutters and quite easy to put up. i did not have to hire anyone! woman. The have a finish where the shutters are easy to clean (as shutters go) each slot surface is easy to dust ....The reason i gave an average on value , is because i feel the price could be lowered. . Perhaps if one orders 3 the 4th one is free or some promotion.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Susan Easy to install.
When I checked at a Home Depot store for interior window shutters and they only had custom made, I was in shock that HD would not have what we needed. At home I checked on line and found exactly for what we were looking. Ordered them that same day, and they were on the doorstep within the estimated delivery time. The pieces were pre drilled so attaching the shutters to the window frame was easy. Even with window security system parts in place we were able to install the shutters by cutting the filler strips with a hand saw and vise. They look nice and will keep the sun out of our mother's bedroom while she is resting during the day.

We needed something for our kitchen window to add a little privacy from our neighbors. These plantation shutters were just the thing. Easy to install, nice looking in our kitchen, and exactly what we needed for the privacy. Only comment is that I wish they fit the window just a little tighter, but for the price, I couldn't really ask for anything more.
