Shutter Options and Parts In Colorado Springs When buying plantation shutters in Colorado Springs, there are many shutter options that you can choose from. Whether it’s deciding what type of tilt rod you want or what frame style goes with your window perfectly, our design professionals will provide you with the many options for shutters in Colorado Springs so your shutters reflect your personal style. Colors Both Polywood plantation shutters and Ovation real wood shutters are available in several colors, paints, and stains. Louver Sizes New: Plantation shutter louvers are manufactured in three main size options: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. Even though louver size is a matter of personal preference, we’ve seen over our extensive experience that you can let more light in with larger louvers to illuminate the room – and have a larger view to look out from. If furniture and fixtures are blocking a portion of your window, tilting the shutter louvers lets in more light and more of the view of your neighborhood. In this instance, larger louvers increase your view outside of your plantation shutters, Colorado Springs! Frame Styles Utilizing a frame or hang strip, all plantation shutters in Colorado Springs can be installed on a window. Our design professionals provide custom mounting, even without a frame if necessary. Here are some of the available frame shutter styles. The Craftsman frame is only installed with Polywood® shutters. Contact our a design expert for more options. Tilt Rods Our best-selling tilt rod option is our traditional front mount tilt rod. This style of tilt rod is the one regularly associated with plantation shutters, and contributes to their elegant style. Since the tilt rod hangs on the front of the shutters, tilting open your shutters so light can come in and completely closing them for more privacy takes a quick second. Another option is our rear-mounted tilt rod, which is an easy and practical way to have the appearance of a hidden tilt rod, but is less expensive than an internally mounted gear mechanism. 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 Colorado Springs are beautiful.
