Craftsman Shutters and More Custom Frame Options for Jacksonville06/26/2017Kevin McCormack It doesn’t happen often, but we’ve heard a Jacksonville homeowner or two claim that “all shutters look the same.” Let’s get rid of any confusion – that couldn’t be further from the truth. Most people aren’t aware of the number of options you have when it comes to shopping for plantation shutters in Jacksonville, and the huge impact those options can have. Possibly chief among those options is the frame style you choose for your shutters. Jacksonville Custom Shutter Frames Your options for shutter frames will depend a few different things: How your window opens and closes. The depth of the window jamb. Whether you’ll have an outside mount or inside mount. Your own personal style. Some of our shutter frames are offered only in certain materials, such as our Polywood® faux wood shutters, some are exclusive to an inside or outside mount of a window, and some will be a better match for your existing trim, like our Craftsman frame shutters, great for Craftsman style homes and offered exclusively by Sunburst. Let’s take a look at some of the most commonly picked shutter frames for Jacksonville homeowners. Craftsman Frame Shutters - You can’t turn on HGTV or read a design magazine for more than a few minutes without seeing Craftsman design. This Sunburst-exclusive frame was built specifically for Craftsman style homes and similar designs. A Craftsman frame gives you a clean and simple look, so no part of your home looks “overdesigned” compared to the rest. If getting back to your Craftsman roots is what you want, this is the frame for you. Currently available in Polywood and reclaimed wood shutters only. L-Frame Shutters - An L-frame is possibly the simplest and most practical frame style. They have a tight, contemporary look, and are usually the easiest to work around if you have a unique window shape. The L-frame can work as both an outside and inside mount, in case you want to keep your existing window trim in place, and is offered in all of our different shutter types. Z-Frame Shutters - Z-frames are a popular choice because they offer a stylized, sophisticated look to your window, much like crown or bass molding. The name “Z-frame” comes from the shape of its exterior, which is mounted on the inside of the window jamb, but wraps around to the outside making a “Z” figure. That wraparound shape makes it so you don’t even need window trim around the window. Z-frames are available in all of our shutter materials. Decorative Frame Shutters - A decorative frame is all about style. With lots of texture and an elegant shape, this frame works best for windows without any trim, or if you want to cover your existing trim. Decorative frames are offered in Polywood faux wood and Ovation hardwood shutters. Beyond the type of frame, there are still a wealth of options for you to choose from. All of our frames can have a sill piece attachment added, in addition to other custom additions your installer can walk you through.
