Stylize Your Shutters with Options like Craftsman Shutter Frames in Miami06/26/2017David White It doesn’t happen often, but we’ve heard a Miami homeowner or two claim that “all shutters look the same.” Let’s eliminate any misconception – those claims couldn’t be further from the truth. Many people don’t know the number of options there are when it comes to choosing plantation shutters in Miami, and the huge impact those options could have. One of the most important of those options is the style of shutter frame you pick. Miami Custom Shutter Frames Your options for shutter frames will depend on: How your window opens and shuts. The depth of the window sill. Whether you’ll have an outside mount or inside mount. Your own personal taste. A few of our shutter frames are offered only in certain materials, such as our Polywood® faux wood shutters, some are exclusive to 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 offered exclusively by Sunburst. Here are some of the most common shutter frames we recommend to Miami 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 designed specifically 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 echoing some historic home style is your desire, this is the frame for you. Currently offered in Polywood and reclaimed wood shutters only. L-Frame Shutters - An L-frame is possibly the simplest and most functional frame style. They have a smooth, contemporary look, and tend to be the easiest to work around for specialty windows. The L-frame can function as either an inside or outside mount, in case you want to keep your existing window trim in place, and is available in every single one of our shutters. Z-Frame Shutters - Z-frames are a widely-chosen style because they give you a stylish, sophisticated look on your window, much like 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 in a “Z” shape. That wrapping shape lets it substitute for window trim if you don’t have any existing trim. Z-frames are available in all of our shutter materials. Decorative Frame Shutters - A decorative frame has a lot going on in the style department. With stylish texture 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 Ovation and Polywood shutters only. Alongside your custom shutter 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, in addition to other add-ons your installer can tell you about.
