Most shutter come in 2 1/2″,  3 1/2″ and 4 1/2″ louver sizes. In choosing the right size louver the first thing to consider is if you have enough clearance for the size you want. Make sure the louvers can move freely without hitting anything.
Tall windows lend themselves to larger louvers. Shorter windows will look more balanced with smaller louvers.
