Interior Shutters

Unlike blinds, shutters are joined to the window frame for a more permanent option. If you’re ready to add value to your house, Louver Shop of Western Carolina offers many gorgeous choices. A few of the benefits of going with interior shutters include:

Sturdy and Long-Lasting

While interior shutters carry a higher price to start, they can stay in your home for decades. We understand our Traditional Shutters are well-loved for a reason. All this time later, we’re one of the only manufacturers who still construct them.

Low Maintenance

Your Louver Shop of Western Carolina shutters are assembled with high-quality American hardwood to withstand expected wear and tear. We also provide one of the best lifetime guarantees in the industry to ensure your shutters stay in first-rate shape.

More Insulation

Interior shutters are useful insulators and are an excellent choice for indoor temperature control. We utilize an exclusive faux wood polymer in our LouverWood® Shutters. This material is up to three times better at insulating than normal wood shutters, and may help you reduce utility costs.

Blinds are the most prevalent window hangings.

Compared to shutters, they are fixed to the inner surface of or above the window recess. They’re also made in a wider assortment of fabrics, colors and styles than shutters.

Think about these things when choosing between blinds and interior shutters:


Blinds are typically more economical than shutters, but our Hunter Douglas blinds don’t sacrifice our standards for cost-effective interior design. And many styles are available with modern motorized operating systems you can control with your phone.

Light Control and Privacy

Blinds allow for an incredible deal of light control and privacy, whether you are looking at horizontal blinds or vertical blinds. Both orientations protect against blinding sunlight. They also hamper sun damage to your furniture and flooring.

Extremely Customizable

Blinds are available in a selection of different kinds of fabrics, colors and patterns. With so many options to pick from, Louver Shop of Western Carolina will help you find the perfect match for your home.
