How To Customize Shutter Tilt Rods

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


If you want the ability to open the upper louvers for sunlight and keep the bottom louvers shut for privacy, ask for split tilt rods or a divider rail. Each style allows you to adjust the top section of your louvers separately from the bottom section.

How To Select A Plantation Shutter Frame

Based on the kind of interior shutter you choose, you’ll have many possibilities for frame styles. Working with your shutter design consultant, find out what sort of frame will be compatible with your window first. They can advise if your window needs an outside- or inside-mounted frame (or if either is appropriate), and what kinds are available.

When you know your possibilities, have fun picking one that is best for your home’s style. Consider selecting a

  • Frame with a sill piece if your window has a sill projecting out from it.
  • Frame that complements your crown molding.
  • Craftsman frame if you live in a Craftsman home.
  • Decorative frame.

Selecting The Size Of Your Interior Shutter Louver

Selecting a louver width mainly is a matter of personal taste. Do you prefer the look of very wide louvers, narrow louvers, or something between the two? You should see how the louvers appear when tilted out and shut. Sunburst Shutters offers louvers in three options: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The skinnier the louvers, the more you'll have in the shutter panels. All those horizontal lines can impede your vision when the shutter panel is closed and the louvers are open. You could opt for the 4.5” wide louvers to open up your view. Even though, the 3.5” ones are the most sought-after size without a doubt.
