It doesn’t happen often, but we’ve heard a Destin homeowner or two claim that “all shutters look the same.” Let’s get rid of any confusion – those claims couldn’t be further from the truth.
Most people don’t know just how many options you have when it comes to choosing plantation shutters in Destin, and the huge impact those options can have. One of the most important of those options is the frame style you choose for your shutters.
Destin Custom Shutter Frames
The options available to you for shutter frames will depend on:
The style of your window.
The depth of the window jamb.
Whether you need to have an inside or outside mount.
Your own personal style.
A few of our shutter frames are only available in certain materials, like our Polywood® faux wood shutters, some are only able to work on 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, great for Craftsman style homes and offered exclusively by Sunburst.
Let’s take a look at some of the most commonly picked shutter frames for Destin homeowners.
Craftsman Frame Shutters - You can’t read a single article about contemporary home design without seeing Craftsman style. This Sunburst-exclusive frame was created specifically for Craftsman style homes and similar designs. A Craftsman frame gives you a simple, clean look, so no part of your home looks gaudy compared to the rest. If utilizing Craftsman fashion 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 practical frame we offer. They have a smooth, contemporary look, and are typically the easiest to work around if you have a unique window shape. The L-frame can be used as both an outside and inside mount, if you’d like to keep your existing window trim in place, and is offered in every single one of our shutters.
Z-Frame Shutters - Z-frames are a common choice because they offer a stylish, sophisticated look on 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 hugs the jamb and extends to the outside making a “Z” figure. That wrapping shape makes it so you don’t even need window trim around the window. Z-frames are available in every single one of our shutters.
Decorative Frame Shutters - A decorative frame has a lot going on in the style department. With lots of texture and an attention-grabbing shape, this frame works best for windows without any trim, or if you want to cover your existing trim. Decorative frames are available in Ovation and Polywood shutters only.
Alongside your custom shutter frame, there are still a great deal of options for you to further customize your shutters. All of our frames can have a sill piece attachment added, in addition to other add-ons your installer can help you choose from.
