It doesn’t happen often, but we’ve heard a Fort Lauderdale homeowner or two claim that “all shutters look the same.” Let’s set the record straight – that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Many people aren’t aware of just how many options there are when it comes to interior plantation shutters in Fort Lauderdale, and what kind of impact those options could have. Possibly chief among those options is the style of shutter frame you pick.
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 style.
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 that utilize Craftsman elements. 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 functional type of shutter frame. They have a tight, modern look, and are typically the easiest to work around if you have a unique window shape. The L-frame can function 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 stylized, elegant look to your window, similar to 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 allows it to substitute for window trim if you don’t have any existing trim. Z-frames are available in all of our shutter materials.
Decorative Frame Shutters - A decorative frame definitely lives up to its name. With lots of texture 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.
Outside of the shutter frame, there are still a great deal of options for you to choose from. All of our frames can add on a sill piece attachment, in addition to other add-ons your installer can tell you about.
