How To Customize Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod connects a shutter’s louvers and adjusts them in unison. Customary tilt rods can be seen on the face of your shutter panels. If you don’t like this look, you can have hidden tilt rods incorporated into the rear edge of your shutters.


If you would find it beneficial to open the top louvers for daylight and keep the bottom louvers closed for privacy, ask for split tilt rods or a divider rail. Both options let you manipulate the top section of your louvers apart from the bottom portion.

How To Pick A Plantation Shutter Frame

Depending on what kind of interior shutter you choose, you’ll have many choices for frame styles. Consulting with your shutter design expert, find out what sort 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 suitable), and what types are available.

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

  • Frame with a sill design if your window has a protruding sill on it.
  • Frame that looks similar to your crown molding.
  • Craftsman frame if you have a Craftsman home.
  • Decorative frame.

Picking An Interior Shutter Louver Size

Picking a louver width primarily is a matter of personal taste. Do you enjoy the appearance of wide louvers, narrow louvers, or something between the two? It’s wise to think about how the louvers appear when tilted out and shut. Sunburst Shutters has louvers in three options: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The thinner the louvers, the more you'll see in the shutter panels. The many horizontal lines can obscure your view when the shutter panel is closed and the louvers are open. You could opt for the 4.5” wide louvers if that’s a concern. Although, the 3.5” louvers are without question the most sought-after size.
