How To Customize Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod controls a shutter’s louvers and repositions them all together. Conventional tilt rods are visible directly on your shutter panels. If you prefer something different, you can get hidden tilt rods built into the rear edge of your shutters.


If you want the ability to open the upper louvers for light while keeping the bottom louvers shut for privacy, request split tilt rods or a divider rail. Both options let you move the top half of your louvers independently from the bottom section.

How To Choose A Plantation Shutter Frame

According to the type of interior shutter you select, you’ll have a variety of choices for frame styles. Consulting with your shutter design consultant, find out what sort of frame will fit your window first. They can tell you if your window should have an outside- or inside-mounted frame (or if either is appropriate), and what types are available.

Once you know your possibilities, have fun selecting one that makes sense for your home’s architecture. Think about 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 The Size Of Your Interior Shutter Louver

Selecting a louver size primarily boils down to personal taste. Do you like the appearance 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 provides louvers in three widths: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The thinner the louvers, the more you'll have in the shutter panels. The abundance of horizontal slats can obscure your sightline when the shutter panel is closed and the louvers are shifted open. You could opt for the 4.5” ones if that’s a concern. However, the 3.5” width is the most preferred size without question.
