What To Consider For Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod connects a shutter’s louvers and moves them all together. Traditional tilt rods are seen directly on your shutter panels. If you want a different look, you can request hidden tilt rods incorporated into the unseen side of your shutters.


If you would find it beneficial to open the upper louvers for light and keep the lower louvers closed for privacy, request a divider rail or split tilt rods. Each option lets you manipulate the top section of your louvers apart from the lower half.

How To Select A Plantation Shutter Frame

According to what kind of interior shutter you select, you’ll have various choices for frame styles. Collaborating with your shutter design consultant, figure out what type of frame will fit your window first. They can let you know if your window requires an outside- or inside-mounted frame (or if either is suitable), and what types are available.

Once you know your options, have a good time choosing one that makes sense for your home’s style. Think about selecting a

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

Selecting The Size Of Your Interior Shutter Louver

Selecting a louver width mainly is a matter of personal taste. Do you enjoy the appearance of wide louvers, narrow louvers, or something in between? You should see how the louvers appear when tilted out and shut. Sunburst Shutters offers louvers in three widths: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The thinner the louvers, the more there will be in each panel. All those horizontal slats can impact your sightline when the shutter panel is closed and the louvers are tilted open. You may go with the 4.5” wide louvers to open up your view. However, the 3.5” ones are the most popular size without a doubt.
