Understanding The Possibilities For Shutter Tilt Rods

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


If you would find it beneficial to open the upper louvers for daylight and keep the bottom louvers closed for privacy, choose a divider rail or split tilt rods. Both styles let you adjust the top half of your louvers independently from the lower half.

How To Select A Plantation Shutter Frame

Depending on the kind of interior shutter you choose, you’ll have many options for frame styles. Consulting with your shutter design consultant, find out what type of frame will fit your window first. They can tell you if your window requires an outside- or inside-mounted frame (or if either is appropriate), and what kinds you can pick from.

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

  • Frame with a sill design 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.

Choosing The Size Of Your Interior Shutter Louver

Selecting a louver size primarily comes down to taste. Do you like the look of very wide louvers, narrow louvers, or something in between? It’s wise to consider how the louvers appear when open and shut. Sunburst Shutters has louvers in three sizes: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The more narrow the louvers, the more you'll find in each panel. All those horizontal lines can impact your view when the shutter panel is closed and the louvers are shifted open. You could consider the 4.5” options if that’s a concern. However, the 3.5” ones are the most preferred size by far.
