The size of louver you choose depends on your own personal choice, the suitability for the installation and the restrictions of your material selected.


You need to think about aesthetics and proportions, but also how much light and privacy you want. The smaller the louvers, the greater the privacy and less light. Larger louvers will give you a better view of outside and plenty of light but less privacy. The majority tend to opt for a mid-size louvre.


If you are looking for a cleaner, more contemporary look for your shutters, the hidden (or “silent”) tilt rod option could be something to consider. Tilt rods are usually connected to each individual louver with metal pins, allowing for an easy movement to control the light. Choose the silent tilt location, and for larger windows, you could have more than one silent tilt section for maximum versatility.


The deal for room dividers and wardrobe doors, if you wish to have fixed louvres as a style statement, rather than for functional purposes. However, the visible or hidden tilt rod options are still the best choice if you wish to use your shutters for controlling light or providing controllable ventilation to your wardrobe.
