Craftsman Shutters and More Custom Shutter Frames for Indianapolis

Bill Burke

A misconception we sometimes hear from Indianapolis homeowners is that “all shutters look the same.” Let’s get rid of any confusion – that couldn’t be further from reality.

Most people don’t realize just how many options you have when it comes to interior plantation shutters in Indianapolis, and what kind of impact those options may have. Possibly chief among those options is the frame style you choose for your shutters.

Indianapolis Custom Shutter Frames

The options available to you for shutter frames will depend on four things primarily:

  • How your window operates.

  • The depth of the window jamb.

  • Whether you need to have an inside or outside mount.

  • Your own personal style.

Some of our shutter frames are only available in certain materials, like our Polywood® faux wood shutters, a few 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, perfect for Craftsman style homes and offered exclusively by Sunburst.

Let’s take a look at some of the most common shutter frames we recommend to Indianapolis homeowners.

Craftsman Frame Shutters - You can’t turn on HGTV or read a design magazine for more than a few minutes without seeing Craftsman style. This Sunburst-exclusive frame was built especially for Craftsman style homes and homes that utilize Craftsman elements. A Craftsman frame offers a simple, clean look, so no part of your home looks “overdesigned” compared to the rest. If utilizing Craftsman fashion is your desire, this is your shutter frame. Currently offered in Polywood and reclaimed wood shutters only.

L-Frame Shutters - An L-frame is possibly the least complex and most functional type of shutter frame. They have a tight, 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, in case you want to keep your existing window trim in place, and is available in all of our different shutter types.

Z-Frame Shutters - Z-frames are a common choice because they offer a stylish, sophisticated look to your window, not unlike 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 wraps around to the outside making a “Z” figure. That wrapping shape allows it to substitute for window trim if you don’t have any existing trim. Z-frames are available in every single one of our shutters.

Decorative Frame Shutters - A decorative frame is all about style. 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 Polywood faux wood and Ovation hardwood shutters.
