5 Decisions To Consider When Ordering Plantation Shutters In Oklahoma City12/22/2015Tyler Jorgensen Purchasing plantation shutters for your Oklahoma City residence is an important investment. Your shutters should provide value in beauty, functionality, and energy savings. But before you start shopping, there are key elements to keep in mind about window shutters. Check out these 5 decisions to think about when ordering plantation shutters in Oklahoma City, OK. Plantation Shutters Louver Size Louvers are the horizontal components of a shutter that cover the window and tilt to bring in the desired amount of view and light. Plantation shutters are available in three different louver sizes to choose from. The widest louver is 4.5”. It’s our best selling louver size in the Oklahoma City area because it brings in the most view and light - and it’s a breeze to dust. Louvers at 3.5” and 2.5” of width lead to more louvers across the window. These plantation shutters have a smaller viewing area and may take longer to clean. Keep these in mind when ordering window shutters. Plantation Shutters Frame Style Plantation shutters are fixed on a window thanks to a frame. The shutter frame that borders the panel adds another custom option. Some frames look and fit better based on the type of window in your home. Take a look at the selection of frame styles that can be yours. Ask a shutter expert about the frame styles available in your area - and whether an inside or outside mount is a better fit for the window. Plantation Shutters Tilt Rod A shutter tilt rod is the perpendicular component that allows you to control the louvers all at once. One of your options is a front mount tilt bar. This classic tilt rod can be seen on the front of the plantation shutter panel. To move the louvers, just move the tilt rod. Other options include a rear mount tilt rod. Here, the tilt rod is mounted on the back side of the shutter panel. It’s hidden from sight when louvers are shut. And you can adjust the shutters by moving a single louver and the rest will follow. Keep in mind that the tilt rod can be spotted on the side when when you have the louvers open. This tilt rod might make the shutter louvers seem like oversized blinds.
