Shutter Options and Parts In Philadelphia When purchasing plantation shutters in Philadelphia, there are lots of shutter options that you can choose from. Whether it’s selecting what type of tilt rod you should use or the frame style that fits your window perfectly, our design experts will present you with the shutter options in Philadelphia so you can match the shutters to your style. Colors Both Polywood plantation shutters and Ovation real wood shutters can be customized with in multiple colors, paints, and stains. Louver Sizes Plantation shutter louvers come in three main size options: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. Although louver size is a matter of personal preference, we’ve observed from our extensive experience that larger louvers allow you to let more light in to brighten up the room – and let in more of the view. When furniture and household items are blocking a portion of your window, 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, Philadelphia! Frame Styles Utilizing a hang strip or a frame, plantation shutters in Philadelphia can be installed on a window. Our design professionals will do custom mounting, – and without a frame when needed. Take a look at the frame shutter styles we offer. The Craftsman frame is only offered for Polywood® shutters. Consult with a design expert for more options. Tilt Rods Our most popular tilt rod is our traditional front mount tilt rod. This type of tilt rod is the one regularly associated with plantation shutters, and is a large part of their elegance. Because the tilt rod hangs on the front of the shutters, it’s easy to open your shutter louvers so light can come in and completely close them for more privacy. You can also choose our rear-mounted tilt rod, which 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. Door Handle Cutout Shutters for doors in Philadelphia are elegant.
