Shutter Options and Parts In Southern California When purchasing plantation shutters in Southern California, there are lots of shutter options to choose from. Whether it’s selecting what frame style goes with your window just right or what kind of tilt rod you should use, our design professionals will provide you with all the shutter options in Southern California so your shutters seamlessly fit your home. Louver Sizes Plantation shutter louvers come in three different sizes: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. Although louver size is a matter of personal preference, we know from our years of experience that larger louvers allow you to let more light in to illuminate the room – and have a larger view to look out from. When furniture and household items are in the way, tilting the shutter louvers brings more light into the space. In this case, the larger the louver, the more you can see through your plantation shutters, Southern California! Frame Styles Thanks to either a frame or hang strip, plantation shutters in Southern California can be mounted on a window. Our design specialists will do custom mounting, – and without a frame if necessary. Here are some of our frame shutter styles. The Craftsman frame is only installed with Polywood® shutters. Consult with a design expert for more options. Hidden Tilt Rod A hidden tilt rod draws on a gear mechanism that’s internally mounted to get rid of a visible tilt rod. This provides you with greater visibility through your plantation shutter louvers. When there’s not a tilt rod in the front, your plantation shutters are easier to clean – and your windows look more sleek and modern. Rear-Mount Tilt Rod A rear-mounted tilt rod is another easy way to get the look of a hidden tilt rod, but is less expensive. Using a thin metal strip on the back corner of each louver, the tilt rod orchestrates the movement of your plantation shutters.
