What To Know About Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod links a shutter’s louvers and repositions them in unison. Customary tilt rods are visible directly on your shutter panels. If you don’t like this look, you can request hidden tilt rods built into the back edge of your shutters.


If you would find it beneficial to open the upper louvers for light while keeping the bottom louvers shut for privacy, request a divider rail or split tilt rods. Both styles let you manipulate the upper section of your louvers separately from the lower portion.

How To Pick A Plantation Shutter Frame

According to what kind of interior shutter you choose, you’ll have a variety of choices for frame styles. Collaborating with your shutter design specialist, find out what sort of frame will be compatible with your window first. They can advise if your window should have an inside- or outside-mounted frame (or if either is appropriate), and what kinds you can find.

Once you are aware of your options, have fun selecting one that makes sense for your home’s architecture. Think about picking a

  • Frame with a sill component if your window has a sill protruding from it.
  • Frame that looks similar to your crown molding.
  • Craftsman frame for your Craftsman home.
  • Decorative frame.

Choosing The Size Of Your Interior Shutter Louver

Selecting a louver width primarily boils down to personal taste. Do you like the appearance of very wide louvers, narrow louvers, or something in the middle? You should see how the louvers appear when open and closed. Sunburst Shutters offers louvers in three sizes: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The thinner the louvers, the more you'll have in the shutter panels. All those horizontal slats can obscure your vision when the shutter panel is secured and the louvers are shifted open. You may go with the 4.5” options to open up your view. Even though, the 3.5” ones are without question the most popular size.
