The louvers of plantation shutters range from 2.5” to 4.5”, giving your home a contemporary ambience. But it’s the frame that outlines the shutters that gives your window treatment the style statement you’re looking for. Depending on the type of windows you have, our team will help you pick the most suitable frame for your home. Here are the shutter frames available in Southern California: Craftsman Frame The craftsman is a modern style shutter frame with clean trim that is wider than similar frame styles. It encases the shutter panels with straightforward lines that add emphasis to the shutters themselves. This is what makes the craftsman shutter trim well-suited for homes that lean toward craftsman style construction. Decorative Frame The decorative frame is distinct from the craftsman with a slimmer look and more sophisticated lines. It’s mounted on the outside of the window opening and has a minimalist design. We’ve seen this decorative shutter trim frequently mounted in classic colonial homes in Southern California. L Frame The L frame can be mounted inside the window opening flat with the wall, or outside the window opening. It gives you clean lines in a small space. This shutter frame outlines the shutter panel in a subtle tone. The L frame is popular in most houses in your area. Z Frame The Z frame is a wider shutter trim that involves decorative window casing. The Z frame plays up its curved face to give your window a traditional feel. What Other Window Shutter Frames Are Available In Southern California? We carry a collection of window shutter frames.
