Should I Remove My Trim Before Installing Shutters? Whether or not to remove the trim depends on your personal taste. If you want to keep the trim you already have, we can build custom shutters to complement your current trim. If you like our shutter frames better, then you can take out the existing trim—but it’s not a necessity. If you’re trying to go trimless or replace your trim, we’ll help you choose the right shutter to match what you have in mind for your space.
