How To Customize Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod connects a shutter’s louvers and moves them all together. Traditional tilt rods are visible on the front of your shutter panels. If you don’t like this look, you can get hidden tilt rods incorporated into the rear edge of your shutters.


If you want the ability to open the upper louvers for light while keeping the lower louvers shut for privacy, request split tilt rods or a divider rail. Both options let you adjust the upper portion of your louvers independently from the lower half.

How To Pick A Plantation Shutter Frame

Based on the type of interior shutter you pick, you’ll have many choices for frame styles. Consulting with your shutter design specialist, figure out what type of frame will work with your window first. They can advise if your window should have an outside- or inside-mounted frame (or if either is suitable), and what styles you can find.

When you know your choices, have fun selecting one that is best for your home’s design. Think about selecting a

  • Frame with a sill component if your window has a sill protruding from it.
  • Frame that complements your crown molding.
  • Craftsman frame if you have a Craftsman home.
  • Decorative frame.

Selecting An Interior Shutter Louver Size

Choosing a louver size primarily comes down to taste. Do you like the appearance of wide louvers, narrow louvers, or something between the two? You should consider how the louvers appear when tilted out and shut. Sunburst Shutters provides louvers in three widths: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The skinnier the louvers, the more there are in the shutter panels. All those horizontal lines can impede your view when the shutter panel is shut and the louvers are tilted open. You might opt for the 4.5” wide louvers in that case. Even though, the 3.5” ones are without question the most sought-after size.
