Craftsman Shutters and More Custom Frame Options for Colorado Springs06/26/2017Gary Harding It doesn’t happen often, but we’ve heard a Colorado Springs homeowner or two claim that “all shutters look the same.” Let’s eliminate any misconception – that couldn’t be further from the truth. Many people don’t know the number of options you have when it comes to shopping for plantation shutters in Colorado Springs, and the impact those options may have. Possibly chief among those options is the type of shutter frame you go with. Colorado Springs Custom Shutter Frames The options available to you for shutter frames will depend on four things primarily: 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. 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 be a better match for your existing trim, like our Craftsman frame shutters, ideal for Craftsman style homes and offered exclusively by Sunburst. Let’s take a look at some of the most commonly picked shutter frames for Colorado Springs 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 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 least complex and most practical frame we offer. They have a smooth, modern look, and are usually the easiest to work around for specialty windows. The L-frame can function as both an outside and inside mount, if you’d like to keep your existing window trim, and is available in every single one of our shutters. Z-Frame Shutters - Z-frames are a widely-chosen style because they offer a stylized, elegant look on your window, much like crown or bass 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 hugs the jamb and extends to the outside creating 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 every single one of our shutters. Decorative Frame Shutters - A decorative frame is all about style. 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 Polywood faux wood and Ovation hardwood shutters. Beyond the type of frame, there are still a great deal of options for you to choose from. All of our frames can have a sill piece attachment added, in addition to other custom additions your installer can walk you through.
