It doesn’t happen often, but we’ve heard a Fort Lauderdale homeowner or two claim that “all shutters look the same.” Let’s get rid of any confusion – that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Many people aren’t aware of just how many options there are when it comes to choosing plantation shutters in Fort Lauderdale, and the huge impact those options could have. Possibly chief among those options is the frame style you choose for your shutters.

Fort Lauderdale Custom Shutter Frames

The options available to you for shutter frames will depend a few different things:

  • How your window opens and shuts.

  • The depth of the window sill.

  • Whether you’ll have an outside mount or inside mount.

  • Your own personal taste.

A few of our shutter frames are offered only 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, ideal for Craftsman style homes and offered exclusively by Sunburst.

Here are some of the most commonly picked shutter frames for Fort Lauderdale homeowners.

Craftsman Frame Shutters - You can’t turn on HGTV or read a design magazine for more than a few minutes without seeing Craftsman design. This Sunburst-exclusive frame was built specifically for Craftsman style houses and homes with similar aesthetics. A Craftsman frame gives you a clean and simple look, so no part of your home looks “overdesigned” compared to the rest. If utilizing Craftsman fashion is your desire, 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 type of shutter frame. They have a tight, contemporary look, and are typically the easiest to work around if your window has a peculiar size or shape. The L-frame can work as both an outside and inside mount, in case you want to keep your existing window trim, and is available in all of our different shutter types.

Z-Frame Shutters - Z-frames are a common choice because they offer a stylish, elegant look to your window, much like 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 hugs the jamb and extends to the outside making a “Z” shape. That wraparound 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 extensive texturing and an eye-catching 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.
