Understanding Your Options For Shutter Tilt Rods

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


If you would find it beneficial to open the top louvers for daylight and keep the lower louvers closed for privacy, ask for split tilt rods or a divider rail. Both choices let you move the top half of your louvers apart from the lower section.

How To Pick A Plantation Shutter Frame

Depending on the type of interior shutter you select, you’ll have various possibilities for frame styles. Working with your shutter design expert, determine what kind of frame will work with your window. They can let you know if your window needs an outside- or inside-mounted frame (or if either works), and what types you can pick from.

When you know your possibilities, have fun selecting one that makes sense for your home’s design. Consider picking a

  • Frame with a sill design if your window has a sill protruding from 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 mostly comes down to taste. Do you enjoy the look of narrow louvers, wide louvers, or something in the middle? You'll want to think about how the louvers appear when turned outward and closed. Sunburst Shutters offers louvers in three widths: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The skinnier the louvers, the more you'll find in each panel. All those horizontal lines can impact your sightline when the shutter panel is shut and the louvers are tilted open. You could consider the 4.5” options in that case. Even though, the 3.5” ones are the most popular size without a doubt.
