5 Decisions To Make When Ordering Plantation Shutters In Sacramento12/22/2015Curtis Orton Ordering plantation shutters for your Sacramento home is a major investment. Your shutters should provide value in energy savings, beauty, and functionality. But before you begin calling up shutter stores, there are a handful of things to think about when it comes to window shutters. Read about these 5 decisions to think about when ordering plantation shutters in Sacramento, CA. Plantation Shutters Louver Size Louvers are the horizontal parts of a shutter panel that cover the window and tilt to bring in the desired amount of view and light. Plantation shutters come in three primary louver sizes. The 4.5” is the widest louver. This louver size is a favorite in the Sacramento area because it provides the most sunlight and scenery - and it’s the easiest to clean. The smaller 3.5” and 2.5” louver sizes mean more louvers in a shutter panel. These plantation shutters have a smaller viewing area and are more of a hassle to dust. Don’t forget about louver sizes when purchasing shutters. Plantation Shutters Frame Style Plantation shutters are mounted on a window thanks to a frame. The shutter frame borders the shutter panel and adds another custom option. Some frames look and fit better depending on the style of window in the room. Preview some of the frame styles that can be yours. Reach out to your shutter professional about the frame styles offered in your area - and whether mounting the frame on the inside or outside is best for your window. Plantation Shutters Tilt Rod A tilt rod is the vertical part that allows you to tilt the shutters in unison. One of your choices is a front mount tilt bar. This classic tilt rod is visible on the front of the plantation shutter panel. To move the shutters, you have to adjust the tilt rod itself. An additional option is a rear mount tilt rod. In this case, the tilt rod is installed on the back side of the shutter panel. The tilt rod is hidden when you close the shutters. And you can move the shutters by moving a single louver and the entire panel of shutters shift as well. Yes, the tilt rod is visible on the side when when you have the louvers open. This tilt rod option might make shutters look like bigger blinds.
