Stylize Your Shutters with Options like Craftsman Shutter Frames in Tampa06/26/2017Eric Ramsey It doesn’t happen often, but we’ve heard a Tampa homeowner or two claim that “all shutters look the same.” Let’s eliminate any misconception – those claims couldn’t be further from reality. Most people aren’t aware of the number of options you have when it comes to shopping for plantation shutters in Tampa, and what kind of impact those options may have. Possibly chief among those options is the type of shutter frame you go with. Tampa Custom Shutter Frames The options available to you for shutter frames will depend on: How your window opens and shuts. The depth of the window jamb. Whether you’ll have an outside mount or inside mount. Your own personal style. Some of our shutter frames are only available in certain materials, like our Polywood® faux wood shutters, some are only available with an inside or outside mount of a window, and some will have a look that may blend in perfectly with your existing trim, like our Craftsman frame shutters, great for Craftsman style homes and only offered by Sunburst. Let’s take a look at some of our most popular shutter frames among Tampa 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 especially for Craftsman style homes and homes with similar aesthetics. A Craftsman frame offers a clean and simple look, so no part of your home looks “overdesigned” compared to the rest. If getting back to your Craftsman roots 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 probably the least complex and most practical type of shutter frame. They have a tight, modern look, and tend to be 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 every single one of our shutters. Z-Frame Shutters - Z-frames are a common choice because they offer a stylish, classy look on 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 creating a “Z” shape. That wraparound shape means it can substitute for window trim if you don’t have any existing trim. Z-frames are available in for all of our shutter products. Decorative Frame Shutters - A decorative frame delivers on the style front. With stylish texture and an elegant 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 further customize your shutters. All of our frames can add on a sill piece attachment, as well as other add-ons your installer can help you choose from.
