Stylize Your Shutters with Craftsman Shutter Frames in Gainesville06/26/2017Eric Ramsey Every so often we’ll hear a Gainesville homeowner claim “all shutters look the same.” Let’s eliminate any misconception – that couldn’t be further from reality. Many people don’t know just how many options you have when it comes to interior plantation shutters in Gainesville, and what kind of impact those options can have. Possibly chief among those options is the type of shutter frame you go with. Gainesville Custom Shutter Frames Your options for shutter frames will depend a few different things: The style of your window. The depth of the window sill. Whether you need to have an inside or outside mount. Your own personal style. A few of our shutter frames are only available 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, ideal for Craftsman style homes and offered exclusively by Sunburst. Here are some of the most common shutter frames we recommend to Gainesville homeowners. Craftsman Frame Shutters - You can’t turn on an episode of Flip or Flop without seeing Craftsman style. This Sunburst-exclusive frame was built specifically for Craftsman style homes and similar designs. A Craftsman frame offers a simple, clean look, so no part of your home looks out of place compared to the rest. If getting back to your Craftsman roots is your desire, this is your shutter frame. Currently offered in Polywood and reclaimed wood shutters only. L-Frame Shutters - An L-frame is probably the simplest and most functional frame we offer. They have a sleek, contemporary look, and tend to be the easiest to work around for specialty windows. The L-frame can work as either an inside or outside mount, in case you want to keep your existing window trim in place, and is offered in every single one of our shutters. Z-Frame Shutters - Z-frames are a widely-chosen style because they offer a stylized, elegant look to your window, similar to bass or crown 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 creating a “Z” shape. That wrapping shape allows it to substitute for window trim if your windows don’t have any existing trim. Z-frames are available in all of our shutter materials. Decorative Frame Shutters - A decorative frame definitely lives up to its name. With extensive texturing and an eye-catching shape, this frame looks fantastic for windows that don’t have any trim, or if you want to cover your existing trim. Decorative frames are available in Polywood faux wood and Ovation hardwood shutters. Beyond the type of frame, there are still a wealth of options for you to further customize your shutters. All of our frames can have a sill piece attachment added, as well as other custom additions your installer can tell you about.
