Every so often we’ll hear a Fort Myers homeowner remark “all shutters look the same.” Let’s set the record straight – that couldn’t be further from reality.
Many people don’t realize the number of options you have when it comes to buying plantation shutters in Fort Myers, and the impact those options may have. Possibly chief among those options is the frame style you choose for your shutters.
Fort Myers Custom Shutter Frames
Your options for shutter frames will depend on four things primarily:
How your window operates.
The depth of the window jamb.
Whether you’ll have an outside mount or inside mount.
Your own personal taste and design.
A few of our shutter frames are offered only in certain materials, such as 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.
Let’s take a look at some of our most popular shutter frames among Fort Myers homeowners.
Craftsman Frame Shutters - You can’t watch House Hunters for more than 5 minutes without seeing Craftsman style. This Sunburst-exclusive frame was created specifically for Craftsman style homes and homes with similar aesthetics. A Craftsman frame offers a simple, clean look, so no part of your home looks “overdesigned” compared to the rest. If getting back to your Craftsman roots is your desire, this is your shutter frame. Currently available in Polywood and reclaimed wood shutters only.
L-Frame Shutters - An L-frame is possibly the simplest and most functional frame we offer. They have a tight, modern look, and are typically the easiest to work around if your window has a peculiar size or shape. The L-frame can be used as both an outside and inside mount, in case you want 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 stylized, classy look to your window, not unlike bass or crown molding. The name “Z-frame” comes from the shape of its exterior, which is mounted on the inside of the window jamb, but wraps around 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 delivers on the style front. With stylish texture and an attention-grabbing 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 available in Polywood faux wood and Ovation hardwood shutters.
Outside of the shutter 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.
