Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TVCabinet Window Shutter to TV Cabinet
Purchased this shutter to be the face of a TV cabinet on top of our mantel. It was easy to assemble, and worked out perfectly. We were able to identify it was the right fit because the Home Depot website gave a detailed description of the product with accurate dimensions. The shutter comes with filler pieces for the sides in case you need extra wiggle room during instillation. Classic example of DIY and the ability to re-purpose items to make a custom piece.

The overall look when the shutters are installed is beautiful. I thought they would be a little easier to install (much easier with 2 people) but overall, love them. And you can't beat the price.

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.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by lisaXhale Nightmare Installation
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.

Really like these shutters, easy to install even by myself. Have told my sister about them since neither of us could afford plantation shutters, these work as well if not better. Wish I had known about the café shutters sooner could have taken the paper off my windows sooner.. the people in the store didn't know to tell me about them or the person that came out to measure for plantation shutters that in the end won't work in my windows..

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