What To Know About Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod controls a shutter’s louvers and adjusts them simultaneously. Traditional tilt rods are seen directly on your shutter panels. If you don’t like this look, you can get hidden tilt rods built into the back edge of your shutters.


If you want the ability to open the top louvers for light and keep the bottom louvers shut for privacy, choose a divider rail or split tilt rods. Both styles let you manipulate the top section of your louvers independently from the bottom section.

How To Select A Plantation Shutter Frame

Based on the type of interior shutter you select, you’ll have various possibilities for frame styles. Working with your shutter design consultant, find out what sort of frame will fit your window. They can advise if your window should have an outside- or inside-mounted frame (or if either works), and what kinds you can find.

When you know your possibilities, enjoy picking one that is best for your home’s design. Think about picking a

  • Frame with a sill component 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.

Picking The Size Of Your Interior Shutter Louver

Picking a louver size mostly is a matter of personal taste. Do you like the appearance of very narrow louvers, wide louvers, or something in the middle? It’s wise to consider how the louvers look when turned outward and shut. Sunburst Shutters provides louvers in three options: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The skinnier the louvers, the more there will be in each panel. All those horizontal slats can obscure your view when the shutter panel is closed and the louvers are tilted open. You might go with the 4.5” wide louvers to open up your view. Even though, the 3.5” louvers are the most preferred size without a doubt.
