What To Know About Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod links a shutter’s louvers and moves them in unison. Conventional tilt rods are visible on the face of your shutter panels. If you don’t like this look, you can request hidden tilt rods incorporated into the unseen side of your shutters.


If you would find it beneficial to open the upper louvers for light and keep the lower louvers shut for privacy, ask for split tilt rods or a divider rail. Both styles let you move the top half of your louvers separately from the lower portion.

How To Pick A Plantation Shutter Frame

Depending on what kind of interior shutter you pick, you’ll have a variety of options for frame styles. Working with your shutter design expert, find out what sort of frame will be compatible with your window first. They can tell you if your window needs an inside- or outside-mounted frame (or if either is appropriate), and what kinds you can find.

Once you have confirmed your possibilities, have a good time choosing one that is best for your home’s design. Think about choosing a

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

Selecting An Interior Shutter Louver Size

Selecting a louver width primarily comes down to taste. Do you prefer the look of wide louvers, narrow louvers, or something in the middle? You'll want to consider how the louvers look when tilted out and shut. Sunburst Shutters provides louvers in three widths: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The thinner the louvers, the more there are in each panel. The many horizontal lines can obscure your vision when the shutter panel is secured and the louvers are tilted open. You might consider the 4.5” ones to open up your view. Although, the 3.5” width is undeniably the most sought-after size.
