What To Consider For Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod connects a shutter’s louvers and moves them simultaneously. Traditional tilt rods are seen on the face of your shutter panels. If you prefer something different, you can request hidden tilt rods built into the unseen side of your shutters.


If you would like to open the top louvers for daylight while keeping the lower louvers closed for privacy, request a divider rail or split tilt rods. Each style lets you manipulate the top section of your louvers independently from the bottom half.

How To Choose A Plantation Shutter Frame

According to what type of interior shutter you choose, you’ll have many options for frame styles. Working with your shutter design expert, determine what kind of frame will fit your window. They can advise if your window should have an outside- or inside-mounted frame (or if either works), and what styles you can pick from.

When you are aware of your options, enjoy selecting one that is best for your home’s style. Think about picking a

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

Choosing An Interior Shutter Louver Size

Choosing a louver width mostly boils down to personal taste. Do you enjoy the appearance of narrow louvers, wide louvers, or something in between? You'll want to see 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 each panel. The many horizontal slats can impact your sightline when the shutter panel is shut and the louvers are shifted open. You might opt for the 4.5” wide louvers to open up your view. However, the 3.5” louvers are the most popular size by far.
