Inside the recess or on the walls outside the recess?
First of all, check for squareness.

How to check for squareness:

  • Why taking this measurement: to fit the shutter inside the recess
  • Type of measurement: measure the recess diagonally
  • Type of measuring tape: use the metal tape measure because the cloth ones could stretch and provide inaccurate measurements.
  • Diagonal measurement: use a measuring tape and note the measures from corner to corner on both sides. If the difference is 1.2 cm or less, the shutter can be fitted inside the recess. Otherwise, it has to be installed outside the recess.
