Understanding Your Options For Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod controls a shutter’s louvers and moves them all together. Conventional tilt rods are seen on the face of your shutter panels. If you don’t like this look, you can get hidden tilt rods built into the rear edge of your shutters.


If you would like to open the upper louvers for daylight and keep the bottom louvers closed for privacy, request a divider rail or split tilt rods. Each option permits you to adjust the top half of your louvers independently from the bottom section.

How To Select A Plantation Shutter Frame

According to what style of interior shutter you pick, you’ll have many choices for frame styles. Collaborating with your shutter design specialist, figure out what kind 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 is appropriate), and what styles you can find.

Once you have confirmed your options, have a good time picking one that complements your home’s design. Think about choosing a

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

Picking The Size Of Your Interior Shutter Louver

Picking the size of your louver mostly comes down to taste. Do you like the appearance of very wide louvers, narrow louvers, or something in the middle? You'll want to consider how the louvers appear when tilted out and shut. Sunburst Shutters offers louvers in three options: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The more narrow the louvers, the more you'll see in each panel. The abundance of horizontal lines can obscure your view when the shutter panel is secured and the louvers are open. You might consider the 4.5” options if that’s a concern. However, the 3.5” width is without question the most sought-after size.
