How To Customize Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod links a shutter’s louvers and moves them simultaneously. Conventional tilt rods can be seen directly on your shutter panels. If you want a different look, you can request hidden tilt rods integrated into the unseen side of your shutters.


If you would like to open the upper louvers for daylight and keep the lower louvers closed for privacy, ask for split tilt rods or a divider rail. Both choices let you adjust the upper half of your louvers separately from the lower portion.

How To Choose A Plantation Shutter Frame

Depending on the style of interior shutter you choose, you’ll have various options for frame styles. Working with your shutter design expert, determine what type of frame will be compatible with your window. They can tell you if your window should have an outside- or inside-mounted frame (or if either is suitable), and what types you can find.

When you know your possibilities, have a good time picking one that makes sense for your home’s style. Consider selecting a

  • Frame with a sill piece 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 width mostly boils down to personal taste. Do you like the appearance of wide louvers, narrow louvers, or something in the middle? It’s wise to think about how the louvers appear when tilted out and shut. Sunburst Shutters offers louvers in three options: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The thinner the louvers, the more there are in the shutter panels. The many horizontal slats can impact your view when the shutter panel is shut and the louvers are tilted open. You might opt for the 4.5” ones to open up your view. Although, the 3.5” louvers are the most popular size without question.
