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 lay out all the options for shutters in Southern California so your shutters seamlessly fit your home. Colors Both Polywood faux wood shutters and Ovation natural wood shutters are available in several colors, paints, and stains. Louver Sizes New: 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 your furniture and household items are in the way, tilting the shutter louvers brings more light into the space. For that reason, 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. Tilt Rods Our traditional front mount tilt rod is our most popular tilt rod option. This style of tilt rod is the one most often associated with plantation shutters, giving them their elegance. Since the tilt rod hangs on the front of the shutters, it’s easy to tilt open your shutter louvers so light can come in and close them completely for extra privacy. We also offer our rear-mounted tilt rod, which is another easy way to get the look of a hidden tilt rod, but is less expensive. There’s a thin metal strip on the back corner of each louver that controls the movement of your plantation shutters. Door Handle Cutout Doors with shutters in Southern California are charming.
