Step 2: Measuring Your Window Box for Bracket Placement
Using the faux bracket measuring chart below, based on the width of our faux brackets and recommended distance from the edge, we have suggested increments in which to place your brackets on our most popular sizes of window boxes. We have found that the most architecturally pleasing placement for faux brackets is to make them look as if they were in fact, structural brackets.
Measure in from the outside edge of the window box, 2 or 3 inches to place the outermost brackets. Mark lightly on the bottom of the window box, your measurements for the brackets to be placed.
Pro Tip: If your window box is slightly longer than your window, we suggest you place the outermost brackets in line with the outside frame of your window pane.
Note: The measurements in the chart are just a suggestion for the most visually appealing window box look. You do not have to follow these measurements.
Note: Two or three brackets could be used on 48" window boxes. If you choose to have two brackets, disregard the "2nd Bracket" measurement in the parenthesis and use the "3rd Bracket" measurement as your second bracket measurement.
