A misconception we sometimes hear from Cleveland homeowners is that “all shutters look the same.” Let’s eliminate any misconception – that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Many people don’t realize just how many options there are when it comes to custom plantation shutters in Cleveland, and the impact those options can have. One of the most important of those options is the frame style you choose for your shutters.
Cleveland 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 sill.
Whether you need to have an inside or outside mount.
Your own personal taste.
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.
Here are some of our most popular shutter frames among Cleveland homeowners.
Craftsman Frame Shutters - You can’t read a single article about contemporary home design without seeing Craftsman design. This Sunburst-exclusive frame was created specifically for Craftsman style houses and homes with similar aesthetics. A Craftsman frame offers a simple, clean look, so no part of your home looks gaudy compared to the rest. If echoing some historic home style is your desire, this is the frame for you. Currently available in Polywood and reclaimed wood shutters only.
L-Frame Shutters - An L-frame is probably the least complex and most practical frame style. They have a smooth, contemporary look, and are usually the easiest to work around if you have a unique window shape. The L-frame can work as either an inside or outside mount, in case you want to keep your existing window trim, and is offered in Polywood® faux wood shutters, Ovation® hardwood shutters, reclaimed wood shutters and Studio™ shutters.
Z-Frame Shutters - Z-frames are a widely-chosen style because they offer a stylized, classy look to 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 in a “Z” shape. That wrapping shape allows it to substitute for window trim if your windows don’t have any existing trim. Z-frames are available in for all of our shutter products.
Decorative Frame Shutters - A decorative frame has a lot going on in the style department. With extensive texturing and an elegant shape, this frame looks fantastic for windows that don’t have any trim, or if you want to cover your existing trim. Decorative frames are offered in Polywood faux wood and Ovation hardwood shutters.
Alongside your custom shutter frame, there are still a wealth of options for you to further customize your shutters. All of our frames are able to add on a sill piece attachment, in addition to other custom additions your installer can help you choose from.
