Every so often we’ll hear a Denver homeowner claim “all shutters look the same.” Let’s get rid of any confusion – that couldn’t be further from reality.
Many people don’t know the number of options there are when it comes to buying plantation shutters in Denver, and what kind of impact those options might have. One of the most important of those options is the style of shutter frame you pick.
Denver 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 need to have an inside or outside mount.
Your own personal taste.
Some 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, perfect for Craftsman style homes and only offered by Sunburst.
Let’s take a look at some of the most commonly picked shutter frames for Denver homeowners.
Craftsman Frame Shutters - You can’t watch House Hunters for more than 5 minutes without seeing Craftsman style. This Sunburst-exclusive frame was designed 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 your desire, 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 type of shutter frame. They have a sleek, contemporary look, and are usually the easiest to work around for specialty windows. The L-frame can be used as either an inside or outside 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 widely-chosen style because they offer a stylish, sophisticated look on your window, not unlike 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 hugs the jamb and extends to the outside creating a “Z” shape. That wraparound shape makes it so you don’t even need window trim around the window. Z-frames are available in every single one of our shutters.
Decorative Frame Shutters - A decorative frame delivers on the style front. With lots of 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 available in Ovation and Polywood shutters only.
Beyond the type of frame, there are still a great deal of options for you to further customize your shutters. All of our frames are able to add on a sill piece attachment, as well as other add-ons your installer can walk you through.
