What To Know About Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod connects 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 integrated into the unseen side of your shutters.


If you want the ability to open the top louvers for daylight and keep the lower louvers shut for privacy, ask for a divider rail or split tilt rods. Each option allows you to move the top portion of your louvers separately from the lower half.

How To Pick A Plantation Shutter Frame

According to what type of interior shutter you select, you’ll have a variety of choices for frame styles. Working with your shutter design expert, figure out what kind of frame will fit your window. They can advise if your window needs an outside- or inside-mounted frame (or if either works), and what types you can pick from.

Once you are aware of your possibilities, enjoy choosing one that complements your home’s architecture. Think about choosing a

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

Selecting The Size Of Your Interior Shutter Louver

Picking the size of your louver mainly comes down to taste. Do you enjoy the look of wide louvers, narrow louvers, or something between the two? It’s wise to think about how the louvers appear when open and closed. Sunburst Shutters has 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 slats can obscure your view when the shutter panel is secured and the louvers are tilted open. You might consider the 4.5” options in that case. Although, the 3.5” louvers are the most popular size without question.
