Craftsman Shutters and Other Custom Frame Options for Salt Lake City

Matt Thelander

A misconception we hear occasionally from Salt Lake City homeowners is that “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 buying plantation shutters in Salt Lake City, and the huge impact those options might have. One of the most important of those options is the style of shutter frame you pick.

Salt Lake City Custom Shutter Frames

The options available to you for shutter frames will depend on four things primarily:

  • The style of your window.

  • 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 will be a better match for 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 read a single article about contemporary home design 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 echoing some historic home style 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 sleek, modern look, and are usually 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 makes it so you don’t even need window trim around the window. Z-frames are available in for all of our shutter products.

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.
