Every once in a while we’ll hear a Indianapolis homeowner remark “all shutters look the same.” Let’s set the record straight – that couldn’t be further from reality.
Most people aren’t aware of just how many options you have when it comes to interior plantation shutters in Indianapolis, and what kind of impact those options might have. One of the most important of those options is the style of shutter frame you pick.
Indianapolis Custom Shutter Frames
The options available to you for shutter frames will depend a few different things:
How your window operates.
The depth of the window jamb.
Whether you need to have an inside or outside mount.
Your own personal taste.
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 our most popular shutter frames among 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 designed especially for Craftsman style homes 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 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 Polywood® faux wood shutters, Ovation® hardwood shutters, reclaimed wood shutters and Studio™ shutters.
Z-Frame Shutters - Z-frames are a common choice because they offer a stylized, sophisticated look to your window, not unlike crown or bass molding. The name “Z-frame” comes from 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 lets it 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.
Outside of the shutter frame, there are still a great deal of options for you to choose from. All of our frames can have a sill piece attachment added, as well as other add-ons your installer can walk you through.
