How To Customize Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod links a shutter’s louvers and moves them simultaneously. Traditional tilt rods can be seen on the front of your shutter panels. If you don’t like this look, you can get hidden tilt rods integrated into the back edge of your shutters.


If you want the ability to open the upper louvers for sunlight and keep the bottom louvers closed for privacy, request a divider rail or split tilt rods. Both styles let you manipulate the upper section of your louvers apart from the lower half.

How To Select A Plantation Shutter Frame

Depending on what style of interior shutter you select, you’ll have a variety of choices for frame styles. Working with your shutter design specialist, determine what sort of frame will work with your window first. They can let you know if your window requires an inside- or outside-mounted frame (or if either works), and what types you can pick from.

When you know your options, have a good time selecting one that is best for your home’s architecture. Consider choosing a

  • Frame with a sill component if your window has a sill projecting out from it.
  • Frame that looks similar to your crown molding.
  • Craftsman frame for your Craftsman home.
  • Decorative frame.

Selecting The Size Of Your Interior Shutter Louver

Selecting the size of your louver primarily comes down to taste. Do you prefer the look of wide louvers, narrow louvers, or something in the middle? You'll want to see how the louvers look when tilted out and closed. Sunburst Shutters has louvers in three sizes: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The skinnier the louvers, the more you'll find in the shutter panels. The many horizontal slats can impede your view when the shutter panel is secured and the louvers are open. You could opt for the 4.5” wide louvers if that’s a concern. However, the 3.5” louvers are the most popular size without a doubt.
