Stylize Your Shutters with Options like Craftsman Shutter Frames in Boston06/26/2017Holly Perron A misconception we hear occasionally from Boston homeowners is that “all shutters look the same.” Let’s set the record straight – that couldn’t be further from the truth. Most people aren’t aware of just how many options you have when it comes to interior plantation shutters in Boston, and the impact those options might have. Possibly chief among those options is the frame style you choose for your shutters. Boston Custom Shutter Frames Your options for shutter frames will depend a few different things: The style of your window. The depth of the window sill. Whether you need to have an inside or outside mount. Your own personal style. Some of our shutter frames are offered only in certain materials, like our Polywood® faux wood shutters, some are only able to work on an inside or outside mount of a window, and some will be a better match for your existing trim, like our Craftsman frame shutters, perfect for Craftsman style homes and only offered by Sunburst. Here are some of our most popular shutter frames among Boston 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 homes and similar designs. A Craftsman frame gives you a clean and simple look, so no part of your home looks out of place compared to the rest. If echoing some historic home style is what you want, this is the frame for you. Currently offered in Polywood and reclaimed wood shutters only. L-Frame Shutters - An L-frame is probably the simplest and most practical frame style. They have a smooth, contemporary look, and are typically the easiest to work around for specialty windows. The L-frame can be used as either an inside or outside 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 widely-chosen style because they give you a stylish, elegant look on your window, similar to crown or bass molding. It gets the name “Z-frame” due to 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” figure. That wrapping shape lets it substitute for window trim if your windows 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 attention-grabbing 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 Ovation and Polywood shutters only. Alongside your custom shutter frame, there are still a lot of options for you to choose from. All of our frames can have a sill piece attachment added, in addition to other custom additions your installer can tell you about.
