There are several factors to consider when incorporating new window shutters into your home. As well as deciding which type of shutter suits your home best, as well as the colour of your shutters and the size of the louvers, you must also decide whether or not you would like the tilt rod to be visible. But what is the difference between visible tilt rod vs hidden tilt rod? Is one of them more functional than the other? And which looks better from an aesthetic point of view?
Our customers often have questions along these lines, and we’d like to set the record straight. Of course, there are no right or wrong answers here as it comes down to personal preference, but we hope the following considerations will get you thinking about what you want from your new shutters before you make any purchases. In this post, we shall weigh up the pros and cons of both types of tilt rod, hopefully helping you settle the visible tilt rod vs hidden tilt rod debate.
