Four distinctly different framing options are available
for the shutter mounted outside the window frame.
The Detailed Molding - the industry standard
The Bullnose - this frame has evolved from the bullnose
edge drywall so prevalent in todays homes.
The California - an understated, yet elegant molding
The Ogee - an ornate frame style for the true wood lover.
Next are the 'Inside' and 'Z' frames.
There is the Standard frame typically used in pass-thru
and wood encased openings.
There is also two 'Z' frames which are available in
Standard and Bullnose styles. These frames are used when inside only
doesn't work, but keeping the panels as close to the plane of the wall
is important. In all cases however, when mounting a shutter inside the
window frame, a significant amount of light and view will be sacrificed.
