What To Consider For Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod controls a shutter’s louvers and moves them in unison. Customary tilt rods are seen on the face of your shutter panels. If you don’t like this look, you can have hidden tilt rods built into the rear edge of your shutters.


If you would like to open the top louvers for light while keeping the lower louvers closed for privacy, ask for split tilt rods or a divider rail. Both options let you manipulate the upper portion of your louvers apart from the bottom section.

How To Choose A Plantation Shutter Frame

Based on what style of interior shutter you pick, you’ll have various choices for frame styles. Working with your shutter design specialist, find out what kind of frame will work with your window first. They can tell you if your window needs an outside- or inside-mounted frame (or if either works), and what types are available.

When you have confirmed your options, have fun choosing one that complements your home’s architecture. Think about selecting a

  • Frame with a sill design if your window has a sill projecting out from it.
  • Frame that looks similar to your crown molding.
  • Craftsman frame if you have a Craftsman home.
  • Decorative frame.

Picking An Interior Shutter Louver Size

Picking the size of your louver mostly boils down to personal taste. Do you like the look of wide louvers, narrow louvers, or something in the middle? You'll want to see how the louvers look when tilted out and closed. Sunburst Shutters has louvers in three sizes: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The thinner the louvers, the more you'll see in each panel. The many horizontal lines can obscure your vision when the shutter panel is shut and the louvers are shifted open. You could consider the 4.5” options in that case. Even though, the 3.5” louvers are unquestionably the most popular size.
