What To Consider For Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod controls a shutter’s louvers and repositions them all together. Customary tilt rods are seen on the front of your shutter panels. If you don’t like this look, you can request hidden tilt rods incorporated into the back edge of your shutters.


If you would like to open the upper louvers for daylight and keep the lower louvers shut for privacy, choose split tilt rods or a divider rail. Each option permits you to manipulate the top half of your louvers independently from the lower section.

How To Pick A Plantation Shutter Frame

According to the type of interior shutter you pick, you’ll have various choices for frame styles. Collaborating with your shutter design specialist, determine what sort of frame will be compatible with your window. They can tell you if your window requires an inside- or outside-mounted frame (or if either is appropriate), and what styles you can find.

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

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

Choosing The Size Of Your Interior Shutter Louver

Choosing a louver width mostly boils down to personal taste. Do you prefer the appearance of wide louvers, narrow louvers, or something in the middle? It’s wise to see how the louvers look when tilted out and shut. Sunburst Shutters provides louvers in three options: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The thinner the louvers, the more there are in each panel. The many horizontal lines can impede your view when the shutter panel is closed and the louvers are shifted open. You may opt for the 4.5” ones to open up your view. However, the 3.5” width is without question the most popular size.
