What To Consider For Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod controls a shutter’s louvers and repositions them simultaneously. Conventional tilt rods are visible on the face of your shutter panels. If you want a different look, you can have hidden tilt rods integrated into the rear edge of your shutters.


If you want the ability to open the top louvers for light while keeping the lower louvers shut for privacy, ask for a divider rail or split tilt rods. Each style allows you to move the upper half of your louvers apart from the bottom half.

How To Select A Plantation Shutter Frame

According to what kind of interior shutter you choose, you’ll have a variety of choices for frame styles. Consulting with your shutter design specialist, find out what type of frame will fit your window first. They can tell you if your window should have an inside- or outside-mounted frame (or if either is appropriate), and what kinds you can find.

When you know your options, have fun selecting one that makes sense for your home’s style. Think about picking a

  • Frame with a sill piece 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

Choosing the size of your louver mainly boils down to personal taste. Do you enjoy the look of very wide louvers, narrow louvers, or something between the two? You should think about how the louvers appear when tilted out and closed. Sunburst Shutters offers louvers in three sizes: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The thinner the louvers, the more there are in the shutter panels. All those horizontal lines can obscure your vision when the shutter panel is closed and the louvers are shifted open. You may go with the 4.5” wide louvers if that’s a concern. Although, the 3.5” width is the most sought-after size without a doubt.
