Stylize Your Shutters with Options like Craftsman Shutter Frames in Dallas06/26/2017Collins Jones A misconception we sometimes hear from Dallas homeowners is that “all shutters look the same.” Let’s set the record straight – that couldn’t be further from the truth. Most people don’t realize just how many options you have when it comes to interior plantation shutters in Dallas, and the huge impact those options might have. Possibly chief among those options is the style of shutter frame you pick. Dallas Custom Shutter Frames Your options for shutter frames will depend on four things primarily: How your window opens and closes. The depth of the window sill. Whether you’ll have an outside mount or inside mount. Your own personal style. Some of our shutter frames are only available in certain materials, such as our Polywood® faux wood shutters, a few 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, built for Craftsman style homes and only offered by Sunburst. Let’s take a look at some of the most common shutter frames we recommend to Dallas homeowners. Craftsman Frame Shutters - You can’t watch House Hunters for more than 5 minutes without seeing Craftsman design. This Sunburst-exclusive frame was built specifically for Craftsman style houses and homes that utilize Craftsman elements. A Craftsman frame offers a clean and simple look, so no part of your home looks gaudy compared to the rest. If echoing some historic home style 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 type of shutter frame. They have a tight, modern look, and are usually the easiest to work around if you have a unique window shape. The L-frame can work as either an inside or outside mount, if you’d like to keep your existing window trim, and is offered in all of our different shutter types. Z-Frame Shutters - Z-frames are a widely-chosen style because they offer a chic, sophisticated look on your window, much like crown or bass molding. It gets the name “Z-frame” due to the shape of its exterior, which is mounted on the inside of the window jamb, but hugs the jamb and extends to the outside in a “Z” shape. That extended shape means it can substitute for window trim if your windows don’t have any existing trim. Z-frames are available in for all of our shutter products. Decorative Frame Shutters - A decorative frame delivers on the style front. With extensive texturing 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. Outside of the shutter frame, there are still a great deal 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 help you choose from.
