What To Consider For Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod controls a shutter’s louvers and moves them all together. Traditional tilt rods can be seen directly on your shutter panels. If you prefer something different, you can request hidden tilt rods integrated into the unseen side of your shutters.


If you would find it beneficial to open the top louvers for sunlight and keep the lower louvers shut for privacy, request split tilt rods or a divider rail. Each option permits you to adjust the upper half of your louvers apart from the bottom half.

How To Choose A Plantation Shutter Frame

According to the kind of interior shutter you select, you’ll have a variety of options for frame styles. Consulting with your shutter design specialist, figure out what kind of frame will be compatible with your window first. They can tell you if your window should have an inside- or outside-mounted frame (or if either is appropriate), and what kinds are available.

When you know your possibilities, enjoy selecting one that makes sense for your home’s style. Consider 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.

Picking The Size Of Your Interior Shutter Louver

Selecting a louver width primarily boils down to personal taste. Do you like the appearance of narrow louvers, wide louvers, or something in between? You'll want to see how the louvers look when turned outward and closed. Sunburst Shutters has louvers in three options: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The thinner the louvers, the more you'll have in the shutter panels. All those horizontal lines can impact your vision when the shutter panel is closed and the louvers are open. You may go with the 4.5” ones if that’s a concern. Even though, the 3.5” width is undeniably the most popular size.
