Craftsman Shutters and Other Custom Frame Options for Southern California06/26/2017Kimball Jones A misconception we sometimes hear from Southern California homeowners is that “all shutters look the same.” Let’s get rid of any confusion – that couldn’t be further from the truth. Many people don’t know the number of options there are when it comes to custom plantation shutters in Southern California, and what kind of impact those options may have. One of the most important of those options is the type of shutter frame you go with. Southern California Custom Shutter Frames The options available to you for shutter frames will depend on: How your window opens and shuts. The depth of the window jamb. Whether you’ll have an outside mount or inside mount. Your own personal style. A few of our shutter frames are only available in certain materials, such as our Polywood® faux wood shutters, a few are only able to work on an inside or outside mount of a window, and some will have a look that may blend in perfectly with your existing trim, like our Craftsman frame shutters, great for Craftsman style homes and only offered by Sunburst. Let’s take a look at some of our most popular shutter frames among Southern California 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 created especially for Craftsman style houses and homes that utilize Craftsman elements. A Craftsman frame offers a simple, clean look, so no part of your home looks out of place compared to the rest. If utilizing Craftsman fashion is what you want, this is your shutter frame. Currently available in Polywood and reclaimed wood shutters only. L-Frame Shutters - An L-frame is possibly the simplest and most functional frame we offer. They have a sleek, contemporary look, and tend to be the easiest to work around if you have a unique window shape. The L-frame can work as both an outside and inside mount, if you’d like to keep your existing window trim, and is offered in every single one of our shutters. Z-Frame Shutters - Z-frames are a popular choice because they give you a stylish, classy look on your window, much like bass or crown molding. This frame is called a “Z-frame” because of the shape of its exterior, which is installed on an inside mount of a window jamb, but wraps around to the outside making a “Z” figure. That wrapping shape allows it to substitute for window trim if you don’t have any existing trim. Z-frames are available in every single one of our shutters. Decorative Frame Shutters - A decorative frame delivers on the style front. With extensive texturing and an attention-grabbing shape, this frame works best for windows without any trim, or if you want to cover your existing trim. Decorative frames are available in Ovation and Polywood shutters only. Alongside your custom shutter frame, there are still a great deal of options for you to choose from. All of our frames can add on a sill piece attachment, as well as other add-ons your installer can tell you about.
