Understanding Your Options For Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod links a shutter’s louvers and moves them in unison. Customary tilt rods are seen on the front of your shutter panels. If you want a different look, you can request hidden tilt rods integrated into the back edge of your shutters.


If you would like to open the top louvers for sunlight while keeping the lower louvers closed for privacy, request a divider rail or split tilt rods. Each choice permits you to move the upper half of your louvers separately from the lower section.

How To Pick A Plantation Shutter Frame

According to the type of interior shutter you choose, you’ll have various options for frame styles. Consulting with your shutter design consultant, figure out what kind of frame will work with your window. 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, enjoy choosing one that complements your home’s design. Think about selecting a

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

Choosing The Size Of Your Interior Shutter Louver

Choosing a louver size primarily comes down to taste. Do you prefer the appearance of narrow louvers, wide louvers, or something between the two? It’s wise to think about how the louvers appear when turned outward and closed. Sunburst Shutters provides louvers in three options: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The skinnier the louvers, the more there are in the shutter panels. All those horizontal lines can obscure your sightline when the shutter panel is shut and the louvers are tilted open. You may consider the 4.5” ones if that’s a concern. Even though, the 3.5” width is without question the most sought-after size.
