Louver Sizes


Plantation shutter louvers are available in three different sizes: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. Although louver size depends on your personal preference, we know from decades of experience that the larger the louver size, the more light you can let in to brighten up the room – and have a larger view to look out from.

When your fixtures and furniture are in the way, adjusting the shutter louvers allows more light to come in. For that reason, larger louvers let you see more through your plantation shutters, Detroit! 

  Louvers come in many sizes

Frame Styles

Using either a frame or hang strip, all plantation shutters in Detroit can be attached to a window. Our design professionals provide custom mounting, even without a frame if needed.

Tilt Rods

Our best-selling tilt rod is our traditional front mount tilt rod. This style of tilt rod is the one most often associated with plantation shutters, giving them their elegant look. Because the tilt rod is on the front of the shutters, adjusting your shutter louvers to let sunlight in and completely closing them for extra privacy is easy. 

You can also choose our rear-mounted tilt rod, which is a functional way to get the appearance of a hidden tilt rod, but is less expensive than an internally mounted gear mechanism. There’s a thin metal strip on the back corner of each louver that regulates the movement of your plantation shutters
