Customize Your Shutters with Craftsman Shutter Frames in Hartford
A misconception we hear occasionally from Hartford homeowners is 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 the number of options there are when it comes to custom plantation shutters in Hartford, and the impact those options may have. One of the most important of those options is the frame style you choose for your shutters.
Hartford Custom Shutter Frames
Your options for shutter frames will depend on:
How your window opens and closes.
The depth of the window jamb.
Whether you’ll have an outside mount or inside mount.
Your own personal taste and design.
Some of our shutter frames are only available in certain materials, such as our Polywood® faux wood shutters, a few 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, ideal for Craftsman style homes and only offered by Sunburst.
Let’s take a look at some of our most popular shutter frames among Hartford homeowners.
Craftsman Frame Shutters - You can’t watch House Hunters for more than 5 minutes without seeing Craftsman style. This Sunburst-exclusive frame was created especially for Craftsman style houses and similar designs. A Craftsman frame offers a clean and simple look, so no part of your home looks out of place compared to the rest. If utilizing Craftsman fashion is what you want, this is your shutter frame. Currently available in Polywood and reclaimed wood shutters only.
L-Frame Shutters - An L-frame is possibly the simplest and most functional type of shutter frame. They have a sleek, contemporary look, and tend to be the easiest to work around if you have a unique window shape. The L-frame can work as both an outside and inside mount, in case you want to keep your existing window trim in place, and is offered in all of our different shutter types.
Z-Frame Shutters - Z-frames are a popular choice because they offer a stylish, elegant look to your window, not unlike bass or crown molding. This frame is called a “Z-frame” because of the shape of its exterior, which is installed on an inside mount of a window jamb, but wraps around to the outside in a “Z” figure. That wraparound shape makes it so you don’t even need window trim around the window. Z-frames are available in every single one of our shutters.
Decorative Frame Shutters - A decorative frame has a lot going on in the style department. With stylish texture and an eye-catching shape, this frame is best used when you have no existing window trim, or if you want to cover your existing trim. Decorative frames are offered in Polywood faux wood and Ovation hardwood shutters.
