Customize Your Shutters with Options like Craftsman Shutter Frames in Seattle
Every once in a while we’ll hear a Seattle homeowner say that “all shutters look the same.” Let’s get rid of any confusion – those claims couldn’t be further from the truth.
Most people aren’t aware of just how many options there are when it comes to buying plantation shutters in Seattle, and the impact those options can have. Possibly chief among those options is the frame style you choose for your shutters.
Seattle Custom Shutter Frames
The options available to you for shutter frames will depend on:
The shape of your window.
The depth of the window jamb.
Whether you need to have an inside or outside mount.
Your own personal style.
A few of our shutter frames are offered only in certain materials, like our Polywood® faux wood shutters, some are only available with an inside or outside mount of a window, and some might just look better than others with your existing trim, like our Craftsman frame shutters, ideal for Craftsman style homes and only offered by Sunburst.
Let’s take a look at some of the most commonly picked shutter frames for Seattle homeowners.
Craftsman Frame Shutters - You can’t turn on an episode of Flip or Flop without seeing Craftsman design. This Sunburst-exclusive frame was created especially for Craftsman style houses and homes with similar aesthetics. 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 your shutter frame. Currently available in Polywood and reclaimed wood shutters only.
L-Frame Shutters - An L-frame is possibly the least complex and most functional frame style. They have a tight, 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, if you’d like 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 popular choice because they give you a stylized, elegant look to your window, not unlike crown or bass 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” shape. That wrapping shape makes it so you don’t even need window trim around the window. Z-frames are available in for all of our shutter products.
Decorative Frame Shutters - A decorative frame delivers on the style front. With lots of texture and an attention-grabbing shape, this frame is best used when you have no existing window trim, or if you want to cover your existing trim. Decorative frames are offered in Polywood faux wood and Ovation hardwood shutters.
