It doesn’t happen often, but we’ve heard a St. George homeowner or two claim that “all shutters look the same.” Let’s set the record straight – that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Many people don’t know the number of options there are when it comes to interior plantation shutters in St. George, and the huge impact those options can have. Possibly chief among those options is the frame style you choose for your shutters.
St. George Custom Shutter Frames
The options available to you for shutter frames will depend on:
How your window operates.
The depth of the window sill.
Whether you need to have an inside or outside mount.
Your own personal taste.
Some of our shutter frames are offered only in certain materials, like 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, built for Craftsman style homes and only offered by Sunburst.
Here are some of the most commonly picked shutter frames for St. George homeowners.
Craftsman Frame Shutters - You can’t watch House Hunters for more than 5 minutes without seeing Craftsman style. This Sunburst-exclusive frame was built especially for Craftsman style houses and similar designs. 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 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 simplest and most practical type of shutter frame. They have a sleek, modern look, and tend to be the easiest to work around for specialty windows. The L-frame can function as both an outside and inside mount, in case you want to keep your existing window trim, and is offered in all of our different shutter types.
Z-Frame Shutters - Z-frames are a popular choice because they give you a stylized, classy look to your window, similar to 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 hugs the jamb and extends 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 every single one of our shutters.
Decorative Frame Shutters - A decorative frame is all about style. With extensive texturing 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 Ovation and Polywood shutters only.
Outside of the 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 help you choose from.
