What To Know About Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod controls a shutter’s louvers and repositions them in unison. Customary tilt rods can be seen on the face of your shutter panels. If you don’t like this look, you can get hidden tilt rods incorporated into the unseen side of your shutters.


If you want the ability to open the top louvers for light while keeping the lower louvers shut for privacy, choose split tilt rods or a divider rail. Both options let you manipulate the upper section of your louvers separately from the lower half.

How To Select A Plantation Shutter Frame

According to the kind of interior shutter you choose, you’ll have a variety of possibilities for frame styles. Collaborating with your shutter design specialist, find out what sort of frame will work with your window first. They can let you know if your window needs an outside- or inside-mounted frame (or if either works), and what styles you can pick from.

Once you have confirmed your choices, enjoy choosing one that makes sense for your home’s design. Consider picking a

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

Picking An Interior Shutter Louver Size

Picking a louver width primarily boils down to personal taste. Do you prefer the appearance of wide louvers, narrow louvers, or something between the two? You'll want to see how the louvers appear when open and closed. 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 obscure your vision when the shutter panel is shut and the louvers are open. You might opt for the 4.5” options to open up your view. Although, the 3.5” width is unquestionably the most sought-after size.
