How To Customize Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod connects a shutter’s louvers and repositions them in unison. Traditional tilt rods can be seen directly on your shutter panels. If you prefer something different, you can have hidden tilt rods built into the back edge of your shutters.


If you want the ability to open the top louvers for sunlight and keep the lower louvers shut for privacy, ask for a divider rail or split tilt rods. Both options let you adjust the upper portion of your louvers separately from the lower half.

How To Select A Plantation Shutter Frame

According to what kind of interior shutter you choose, you’ll have many options for frame styles. Working with your shutter design consultant, figure out what type of frame will work with your window. They can let you know if your window needs an outside- or inside-mounted frame (or if either works), and what types you can pick from.

When you know your possibilities, have a good time selecting one that makes sense for your home’s style. 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 An Interior Shutter Louver Size

Choosing the size of your louver mainly boils down to personal taste. Do you like the appearance of narrow louvers, wide louvers, or something between the two? You'll want to consider how the louvers appear when open and shut. Sunburst Shutters provides louvers in three widths: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The more narrow the louvers, the more there will be in the shutter panels. All those horizontal lines can impact your vision when the shutter panel is shut and the louvers are open. You might go with the 4.5” options in that case. Although, the 3.5” width is the most sought-after size without question.
