How To Customize Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod links a shutter’s louvers and adjusts them simultaneously. Customary tilt rods are seen directly on your shutter panels. If you want a different 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 sunlight while keeping the lower louvers closed for privacy, ask for split tilt rods or a divider rail. Each option permits you to move the upper portion of your louvers independently from the lower section.

How To Choose A Plantation Shutter Frame

Based on the style of interior shutter you choose, you’ll have a variety of options for frame styles. Consulting with your shutter design expert, find out what sort of frame will fit your window first. They can let you know if your window requires an inside- or outside-mounted frame (or if either works), and what kinds you can find.

Once you have confirmed your options, have fun picking one that complements your home’s design. Think about picking a

  • Frame with a sill piece if your window has a sill projecting out from it.
  • Frame that looks similar to your crown molding.
  • Craftsman frame if you have a Craftsman home.
  • Decorative frame.

Selecting An Interior Shutter Louver Size

Selecting a louver size mostly is a matter of personal taste. Do you enjoy the look of very wide louvers, narrow louvers, or something in the middle? You should consider how the louvers appear when tilted out and closed. Sunburst Shutters provides louvers in three options: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The thinner the louvers, the more there are in each panel. The abundance of horizontal lines can obscure your view when the shutter panel is closed and the louvers are tilted open. You may opt for the 4.5” options if that’s a concern. Even though, the 3.5” width is unquestionably the most popular size.
