Shutter Options and Parts In Austin When buying plantation shutters in Austin, there are plenty of shutter options that you can choose from. Whether it’s selecting what frame style goes with your window just right or what form of tilt rod to use, our design experts will lay out the many options for shutters in Austin so your shutters seamlessly fit your home. Colors Both Polywood plantation shutters and Ovation hardwood shutters are available in various colors, paints, and stains. Louver Sizes New: Plantation shutter louvers are available in three main size options: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. Even though louver size depends on your personal preference, we know from our years of experience that you can let more light in with larger louvers to brighten up the room – and have a larger view to look out from. If your fixtures and furniture are in front of your window, tilting the shutter louvers allows more light to come in. In this case, the larger the louver, the more you can see through your plantation shutters, Austin! Frame Styles Thanks to a frame or hang strip, all plantation shutters in Austin can be installed on a window. Our design professionals will do custom mounting, – and without a frame when needed. Browse through our frame shutter styles. The Craftsman frame is only available for Polywood® shutters. Ask a design expert for more options. Tilt Rods Our customers’ favorite tilt rod option is our traditional front mount tilt rod. This tilt rod style is the one typically associated with plantation shutters, and contributes to their elegant style. Because the tilt rod hangs on the front of the shutters, it’s easy to tilt open your shutters to let light in and close them completely for additional privacy. You can also choose our rear-mounted tilt rod, which is an easy and practical way to enjoy the feel of a hidden tilt rod, but is less expensive than an internally mounted gear mechanism. The back corner of each louver has a thin metal strip that orchestrates the motion of your plantation shutters. Door Handle Cutout Shutters for doors in Austin are elegant. But what if your door has a handle that reaches over the glass? Our experts build the shutters around the existing door handle. This way, you have beautiful, functional doors and shutters. And you are able to hold on to the door handle! These stylish shutters give your doors a custom look while maintaining the unifying look of shutters in all of your rooms. Door handle cutouts are available in rounded and square shapes. No matter what option you pick, our installation specialists guide you in customizing your doors with shutter options in Austin to fit décor and personal taste.
