What To Consider For Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod links a shutter’s louvers and adjusts them in unison. Traditional tilt rods can be seen on the front of your shutter panels. If you prefer something different, you can request hidden tilt rods built into the unseen side of your shutters.


If you want the ability to open the upper louvers for daylight and keep the bottom louvers shut for privacy, choose split tilt rods or a divider rail. Each style lets you adjust the top portion of your louvers separately from the lower portion.

How To Choose A Plantation Shutter Frame

According to what style of interior shutter you choose, you’ll have a variety of choices for frame styles. Collaborating with your shutter design consultant, find out what sort of frame will work with your window first. They can let you know if your window needs an inside- or outside-mounted frame (or if either works), and what kinds you can pick from.

When you are aware of your choices, have a good time choosing one that is best for your home’s design. Consider 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 live in a Craftsman home.
  • Decorative frame.

Picking An Interior Shutter Louver Size

Picking a louver size primarily boils down to personal taste. Do you like the look of narrow louvers, wide louvers, or something in between? You'll want to 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 more narrow the louvers, the more there are in the shutter panels. The abundance of horizontal lines can impede your sightline when the shutter panel is secured and the louvers are tilted open. You might opt for the 4.5” ones in that case. Although, the 3.5” louvers are the most sought-after size without question.
