Customize Your Shutters with Craftsman Shutter Frames in Kingsport06/26/2017Jacob Hayes Every once in a while we’ll hear a Kingsport homeowner say that “all shutters look the same.” Let’s get rid of any confusion – those claims couldn’t be further from reality. Most people don’t realize just how many options you have when it comes to custom plantation shutters in Kingsport, and what kind of impact those options can have. One of the most important of those options is the type of shutter frame you go with. Kingsport Custom Shutter Frames The options available to you for shutter frames will depend on: How your window opens and closes. The depth of the window sill. Whether you’ll have an outside mount or inside mount. Your own personal style. Some of our shutter frames are only available in certain materials, such as our Polywood® faux wood shutters, a few 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, perfect for Craftsman style homes and offered exclusively by Sunburst. Here are some of the most commonly picked shutter frames for Kingsport 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 especially for Craftsman style houses and homes that utilize Craftsman elements. 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 what you want, this is the frame for you. 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 sleek, modern look, and tend to be the easiest to work around for specialty windows. The L-frame can function as either an inside or outside mount, in case you want to keep your existing window trim, and is available in Polywood® faux wood shutters, Ovation® hardwood shutters, reclaimed wood shutters and Studio™ shutters. Z-Frame Shutters - Z-frames are a widely-chosen style because they offer a stylish, classy look on your window, not unlike bass or crown molding. It gets the name “Z-frame” due to the shape of its exterior, which is mounted on the inside of the window jamb, but wraps around to the outside making a “Z” shape. That wrapping shape makes it so you don’t even need window trim around the window. Z-frames are available in all of our shutter materials. Decorative Frame Shutters - A decorative frame delivers on the style front. 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. Outside of the shutter frame, there are still a lot 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 help you choose from.
