Craftsman Shutters and More Custom Shutter Frames for Honolulu06/26/2017Darren Wong A misconception we hear occasionally from Honolulu homeowners is that “all shutters look the same.” Let’s set the record straight – those claims couldn’t be further from reality. Many people aren’t aware of the number of options there are when it comes to buying plantation shutters in Honolulu, and the impact those options may have. One of the most important of those options is the style of shutter frame you pick. Honolulu Custom Shutter Frames Your options for shutter frames will depend a few different things: The style of your window. The depth of the window sill. Whether you need to have an inside or outside mount. Your own personal style. A few of our shutter frames are offered only in certain materials, such as our Polywood® faux wood shutters, a few are only able to work on an inside or outside mount of a window, and some will have a look that may blend in perfectly with your existing trim, like our Craftsman frame shutters, great for Craftsman style homes and only offered by Sunburst. Let’s take a look at some of our most popular shutter frames among Honolulu homeowners. Craftsman Frame Shutters - You can’t watch House Hunters for more than 5 minutes without seeing Craftsman design. This Sunburst-exclusive frame was built specifically for Craftsman style houses and homes that utilize Craftsman elements. A Craftsman frame gives you a clean and simple 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 least complex and most practical frame we offer. They have a tight, modern look, and tend to be 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 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 stylized, classy look to your window, much like bass or crown molding. The name “Z-frame” comes from 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 in a “Z” figure. That wrapping shape allows it to substitute for window trim if you don’t have any existing trim. Z-frames are available in all of our shutter materials. Decorative Frame Shutters - A decorative frame definitely lives up to its name. With stylish texture and an elegant 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. Alongside your custom shutter frame, there are still a wealth of options for you to choose from. All of our frames can have a sill piece attachment added, as well as other custom additions your installer can walk you through.
