Every once in a while we’ll hear a Atlanta homeowner remark “all shutters look the same.” Let’s eliminate any misconception – that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Most people don’t realize just how many options there are when it comes to custom plantation shutters in Atlanta, and the huge impact those options can have. Possibly chief among those options is the frame style you choose for your shutters.
Atlanta Custom Shutter Frames
Your options for shutter frames will depend on:
How your window opens and shuts.
The depth of the window jamb.
Whether you need to have an inside or outside 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 will be a better match for your existing trim, like our Craftsman frame shutters, great for Craftsman style homes and offered exclusively by Sunburst.
Here are some of the most commonly picked shutter frames for Atlanta homeowners.
Craftsman Frame Shutters - You can’t turn on an episode of Flip or Flop without seeing Craftsman style. This Sunburst-exclusive frame was designed specifically for Craftsman style houses and homes with similar aesthetics. A Craftsman frame offers a simple, clean look, so no part of your home looks out of place compared to the rest. If echoing some historic home style is your desire, this is the frame for you. Currently available in Polywood and reclaimed wood shutters only.
L-Frame Shutters - An L-frame is possibly the least complex and most practical type of shutter frame. They have a sleek, contemporary look, and are typically the easiest to work around for specialty windows. The L-frame can be used as either an inside or outside mount, if you’d like 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 chic, elegant look on your window, not unlike crown or bass molding. It gets the name “Z-frame” due to 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” shape. That extended shape makes it so you don’t even need window trim around the window. Z-frames are available in for all of our shutter products.
Decorative Frame Shutters - A decorative frame has a lot going on in the style department. With lots of 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 Polywood faux wood and Ovation hardwood shutters.
Alongside your custom shutter frame, there are still a lot 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 help you choose from.
