Craftsman Shutters and More Custom Shutter Frames for Oklahoma City06/26/2017Tyler Jorgensen A misconception we sometimes hear from Oklahoma City homeowners is that “all shutters look the same.” Let’s set the record straight – those claims couldn’t be further from the truth. Many people aren’t aware of just how many options you have when it comes to shopping for plantation shutters in Oklahoma City, and the huge impact those options may have. Possibly chief among those options is the frame style you choose for your shutters. Oklahoma City 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 jamb. Whether you’ll have an outside mount or inside mount. Your own personal taste. A few of our shutter frames are only available in certain materials, such as our Polywood® faux wood shutters, some are exclusive to 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 only offered by Sunburst. Let’s take a look at some of our most popular shutter frames among Oklahoma City homeowners. Craftsman Frame Shutters - You can’t turn on HGTV or read a design magazine for more than a few minutes without seeing Craftsman style. This Sunburst-exclusive frame was built specifically for Craftsman style houses and similar designs. A Craftsman frame gives you a clean and simple look, so no part of your home looks gaudy compared to the rest. If echoing some historic home style is what you want, this is your shutter frame. Currently offered in Polywood and reclaimed wood shutters only. L-Frame Shutters - An L-frame is possibly the least complex and most functional type of shutter frame. They have a tight, 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 offered in Polywood® faux wood shutters, Ovation® hardwood shutters, reclaimed wood shutters and Studio™ shutters. Z-Frame Shutters - Z-frames are a common choice because they offer a chic, sophisticated look to your window, similar to 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 hugs the jamb and extends to the outside creating a “Z” figure. 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 definitely lives up to its name. With extensive texturing and an attention-grabbing 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 available in Ovation and Polywood shutters only. Beyond the type of frame, there are still a wealth of options for you to further customize your shutters. All of our frames can have a sill piece attachment added, in addition to other custom additions your installer can walk you through.
