How To Customize Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod links a shutter’s louvers and repositions them all together. Customary tilt rods can be seen directly on your shutter panels. If you prefer something different, you can have hidden tilt rods incorporated into the back edge of your shutters.


If you would find it beneficial to open the top louvers for light and keep the bottom louvers shut for privacy, ask for split tilt rods or a divider rail. Each style lets you adjust the top half of your louvers separately from the lower portion.

How To Choose A Plantation Shutter Frame

According to the kind of interior shutter you pick, you’ll have many possibilities for frame styles. Collaborating with your shutter design specialist, figure out what kind of frame will be compatible with your window first. They can tell you if your window requires an inside- or outside-mounted frame (or if either works), and what types are available.

When you are aware of your possibilities, have fun choosing one that is best for your home’s design. Consider choosing a

  • Frame with a sill component 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.

Selecting An Interior Shutter Louver Size

Selecting a louver size primarily boils down to personal taste. Do you prefer the appearance of very wide louvers, narrow louvers, or something between the two? You'll want to see how the louvers appear when turned outward and closed. Sunburst Shutters offers louvers in three sizes: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The thinner the louvers, the more there are in the shutter panels. The abundance of horizontal slats can impact your view when the shutter panel is secured and the louvers are tilted open. You might opt for the 4.5” wide louvers if that’s a concern. Although, the 3.5” width is the most preferred size without question.
