Craftsman Shutters and More Custom Frame Options for Nashville06/26/2017Stefano Diotaiuti A misconception we hear occasionally from Nashville homeowners is that “all shutters look the same.” Let’s get rid of any confusion – those claims couldn’t be further from the truth. Most people don’t know the number of options you have when it comes to shopping for plantation shutters in Nashville, and the impact those options could have. Possibly chief among those options is the type of shutter frame you go with. Nashville 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. Some of our shutter frames are offered only in certain materials, such as 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, built for Craftsman style homes and only offered by Sunburst. Here are some of our most popular shutter frames among Nashville homeowners. Craftsman Frame Shutters - You can’t read a single article about contemporary home design without seeing Craftsman design. This Sunburst-exclusive frame was built specifically for Craftsman style homes and similar designs. A Craftsman frame gives you a simple, clean look, so no part of your home looks gaudy compared to the rest. If utilizing Craftsman fashion 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, contemporary look, and are typically the easiest to work around for specialty windows. The L-frame can function as both an outside and inside mount, if you’d like to keep your existing window trim, and is available in Polywood® faux wood shutters, Ovation® hardwood shutters, reclaimed wood shutters and Studio™ shutters. Z-Frame Shutters - Z-frames are a common choice because they give you a chic, sophisticated look to your window, much like crown or bass molding. It gets the name “Z-frame” due to the shape of its exterior, which is mounted on the inside of the window jamb, but hugs the jamb and extends to the outside creating a “Z” figure. 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 definitely lives up to its name. With lots of texture and an elegant 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. Outside of the shutter frame, there are still a great deal of options for you to further customize your shutters. All of our frames can add on a sill piece attachment, as well as other custom additions your installer can help you choose from.
