Types of Window Shutter Frames For Chicago Windows

September 22, 2015

When our professionals come to your Chicago home for a design consultation, they’ll guide you through the shutter options available - including shutter frames. The louvers of plantation shutters range from 2.5” to 4.5”, giving your home a contemporary look. But it’s the frame that outlines the shutters that gives your window treatment the ultimate style statement. Depending on the type of windows you have, our team will help you select the most suitable frame for your home.

Here are the shutter frames available in Chicago:

Craftsman Frame

Craftsman Frame

The craftsman is a modern style shutter frame with unfussy trim that is wider than other frame styles. It outlines the shutter panels with straightforward lines that add emphasis to the shutters themselves. This is what makes the craftsman shutter trim best for homes that lean toward craftsman style construction.

Decorative Frame

Decorative Frame

The decorative frame is distinct from the craftsman with a slimmer look and more sophisticated lines. It’s mounted on the outside of the window opening and has a minimalist design. We’ve seen this decorative shutter trim most often mounted in classic colonial homes in Chicago.

L Frame

L Frame

The L frame can be mounted inside the window opening even with the wall, or outside the window opening. It gives you clean lines in a small space. This shutter frame defines the shutter panel in a subtle form. The L frame matches the style of most homes.

Z Frame

Z Frame

The Z frame is a wider shutter trim that incorporates decorative window casing. The Z frame features a curved face that gives the window a timeless tone.
