What To Consider For Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod links a shutter’s louvers and adjusts them simultaneously. Conventional tilt rods can be seen on the front of your shutter panels. If you want a different look, you can have hidden tilt rods incorporated into the back edge of your shutters.


If you would like to open the upper louvers for sunlight and keep the lower louvers closed for privacy, ask for split tilt rods or a divider rail. Each style lets you manipulate the upper half of your louvers apart from the bottom portion.

How To Pick A Plantation Shutter Frame

According to the type of interior shutter you choose, you’ll have various possibilities for frame styles. Consulting with your shutter design specialist, find out what type of frame will be compatible with your window. They can tell you if your window should have an inside- or outside-mounted frame (or if either is suitable), and what types you can find.

When you have confirmed your options, have a good time choosing one that complements your home’s architecture. Consider choosing a

  • Frame with a sill component if your window has a protruding sill on it.
  • Frame that goes with your crown molding.
  • Craftsman frame if you have a Craftsman home.
  • Decorative frame.

Picking An Interior Shutter Louver Size

Choosing a louver size mainly comes down to taste. Do you prefer the look of very narrow louvers, wide louvers, or something between the two? It’s wise to think about how the louvers appear when turned outward and shut. Sunburst Shutters provides louvers in three sizes: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The skinnier the louvers, the more you'll have in each panel. All those horizontal lines can impact your vision when the shutter panel is secured and the louvers are tilted open. You could opt for the 4.5” options if that’s a concern. However, the 3.5” louvers are the most popular size without a doubt.
