Understanding The Possibilities For Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod links a shutter’s louvers and moves them all together. Customary tilt rods are seen on the face of your shutter panels. If you prefer something different, you can get hidden tilt rods built into the back edge of your shutters.


If you want the ability to open the top louvers for daylight while keeping the lower louvers shut for privacy, ask for a divider rail or split tilt rods. Both choices let you move the upper portion of your louvers apart from the bottom half.

How To Choose A Plantation Shutter Frame

According to the style of interior shutter you choose, you’ll have a variety of possibilities for frame styles. Working with your shutter design specialist, determine what sort of frame will work with your window first. They can advise if your window should have an inside- or outside-mounted frame (or if either is appropriate), and what styles you can pick from.

When you know your possibilities, have a good time choosing one that is best for your home’s design. Consider selecting a

  • Frame with a sill piece if your window has a protruding sill on it.
  • Frame that goes with your crown molding.
  • Craftsman frame if you live in a Craftsman home.
  • Decorative frame.

Picking An Interior Shutter Louver Size

Picking a louver size primarily boils down to personal taste. Do you prefer the look of very wide louvers, narrow louvers, or something in between? It’s wise to see how the louvers look when turned outward and closed. Sunburst Shutters has louvers in three sizes: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The skinnier the louvers, the more you'll have in the shutter panels. The abundance of horizontal lines can impact your sightline when the shutter panel is closed and the louvers are open. You may go with the 4.5” ones in that case. Although, the 3.5” louvers are the most sought-after size by far.
