There are three different louver sizes for you to choose from. Each one can look great in it’s own setting and there are no hard and fast rules as to which one you should choose. Very often the size of the panel you’ve chosen will dictate the size of louver you decide on. Going back to our previous example of the 38″ by 36″ window, if you decided on just two panels, either the 2 1/2″ or the 3 1/2″ louver would suit best whereas if you decided on four panels maybe just the 2 1/2″ would suit better. At the end of the day it’s down to your personal choice. The majority of our customers choose the 3 1/2″ louvre as it looks good in almost any environment and allows lots of light enter the room.
The largest 4 1/2″ louvre can be a little dominant if used in the wrong settings and is best kept for large openings like floor to ceiling windows and large apex feature windows.
The larger the louver the more light is allowed in and the greater view is afforded out. Also, keep the same size louver in the same room and on the same aspect of the house.
