How To Customize Shutter Tilt Rods

The tilt rod controls a shutter’s louvers and adjusts them all together. Conventional tilt rods are visible on the face of your shutter panels. If you want a different look, you can have hidden tilt rods incorporated into the unseen side of your shutters.


If you would like to open the top louvers for sunlight and keep the bottom louvers shut for privacy, request split tilt rods or a divider rail. Each choice permits you to manipulate the upper section of your louvers separately from the bottom section.

How To Select A Plantation Shutter Frame

According to the kind of interior shutter you pick, you’ll have a variety of choices for frame styles. Consulting with your shutter design consultant, figure out what sort of frame will work with your window. They can advise if your window needs an outside- or inside-mounted frame (or if either is appropriate), and what kinds you can pick from.

Once you know your options, enjoy selecting one that complements your home’s architecture. Consider picking a

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

Choosing The Size Of Your Interior Shutter Louver

Picking a louver size primarily comes down to taste. Do you enjoy the appearance of wide louvers, narrow louvers, or something between the two? You should see how the louvers appear when open and shut. Sunburst Shutters provides louvers in three options: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The more narrow the louvers, the more there are in each panel. The many horizontal lines can impede your vision when the shutter panel is closed and the louvers are tilted open. You might consider the 4.5” options in that case. Although, the 3.5” louvers are the most preferred size without question.
