Understanding The Possibilities For Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod links a shutter’s louvers and adjusts them all together. Customary tilt rods are visible directly on your shutter panels. If you prefer something different, you can have hidden tilt rods integrated into the back edge of your shutters.


If you want the ability to open the upper louvers for daylight while keeping the bottom louvers shut for privacy, choose split tilt rods or a divider rail. Both choices let you manipulate the top portion of your louvers apart from the bottom half.

How To Select A Plantation Shutter Frame

Based on the style of interior shutter you select, you’ll have many options for frame styles. Consulting with your shutter design consultant, find out what sort of frame will fit your window first. They can advise if your window should have an outside- or inside-mounted frame (or if either is suitable), and what styles you can pick from.

When you are aware of your options, have fun choosing one that complements your home’s style. Think about choosing a

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

Choosing An Interior Shutter Louver Size

Selecting a louver size mainly is a matter of personal taste. Do you like the look of narrow louvers, wide louvers, or something in the middle? It’s wise to consider how the louvers look when tilted out and closed. Sunburst Shutters offers louvers in three options: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The skinnier the louvers, the more there are in each panel. The many horizontal lines can impede your sightline when the shutter panel is closed and the louvers are tilted open. You could consider the 4.5” wide louvers in that case. Although, the 3.5” width is the most sought-after size by far.
