How To Customize Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod connects a shutter’s louvers and repositions them in unison. Conventional tilt rods are visible on the face of your shutter panels. If you want a different look, you can have hidden tilt rods built into the back edge of your shutters.


If you would like to open the upper louvers for light and keep the bottom louvers shut for privacy, ask for split tilt rods or a divider rail. Each option permits you to adjust the top portion of your louvers separately from the bottom portion.

How To Choose A Plantation Shutter Frame

According to what type of interior shutter you pick, you’ll have various possibilities for frame styles. Working with your shutter design expert, find out what kind of frame will work with your window first. They can tell you if your window needs an inside- or outside-mounted frame (or if either is appropriate), and what styles are available.

Once you are aware of your possibilities, have fun selecting one that makes sense for your home’s architecture. 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 have a Craftsman home.
  • Decorative frame.

Choosing The Size Of Your Interior Shutter Louver

Picking a louver width mainly boils down to personal taste. Do you like the look of very wide louvers, narrow louvers, or something between the two? You should consider how the louvers appear when turned outward and closed. Sunburst Shutters has louvers in three options: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The more narrow the louvers, the more you'll see in each panel. The many horizontal lines can impact your vision when the shutter panel is shut and the louvers are open. You may opt for the 4.5” ones to open up your view. Although, the 3.5” width is unquestionably the most preferred size.
