Every so often we’ll hear a Salt Lake City homeowner claim “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 shopping for plantation shutters in Salt Lake City, and what kind of impact those options may have. One of the most important of those options is the frame style you choose for your shutters.
Salt Lake City Custom Shutter Frames
The options available to you for shutter frames will depend a few different things:
How your window operates.
The depth of the window sill.
Whether you need to have an inside or outside mount.
Your own personal taste and design.
Some of our shutter frames are only available in certain materials, like our Polywood® faux wood shutters, a few 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, perfect for Craftsman style homes and only offered by Sunburst.
Here are some of the most commonly picked shutter frames for Salt Lake City homeowners.
Craftsman Frame Shutters - You can’t turn on an episode of Flip or Flop without seeing Craftsman design. This Sunburst-exclusive frame was created specifically for Craftsman style houses and homes with similar aesthetics. A Craftsman frame gives you a simple, clean look, so no part of your home looks gaudy compared to the rest. If getting back to your Craftsman roots 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 probably the least complex and most functional frame style. They have a smooth, modern look, and tend to be 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 in place, and is available 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 stylish, sophisticated look to your window, much like crown or bass molding. The name “Z-frame” comes from 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” figure. That wrapping 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 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 Polywood faux wood and Ovation hardwood shutters.
Outside of the shutter 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, as well as other add-ons your installer can walk you through.
