Types of Window Shutter Frames For Chicago Windows09/22/2015Richard Rampton When our professionals come to your Chicago home for a design consultation, they’ll show you 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 style statement you’re looking for. Depending on the type of windows you have, our team will help you select the perfect frame for your home. Here are the shutter frames available in Chicago: Craftsman Frame The craftsman is a modern style shutter frame with unfussy trim that is wider than most frame styles. It encases the shutter panels with straightforward lines that add emphasis to the shutters themselves. This is what makes the craftsman shutter trim well-suited for homes that lean toward craftsman style construction. Decorative Frame The decorative frame is distinct from the craftsman with a slimmer look and more delicate 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 The L frame can be mounted inside the window opening flat 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 manner. The L frame is popular in most houses in your area. 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 classic tone.
