Interior Shutters

Unlike blinds, shutters attach to the window frame themself. If you’re wanting to add value to your home, Louver Shop of Orlando has quite a few attractive choices. A couple of the benefits of going with interior shutters include:

Secure and Long-Lasting

While interior shutters cost more to place, they can stay in your home a lifetime. We know our Traditional Shutters are well-loved for a reason. Many years later, we’re one of the only manufacturers who still produce them.

Easy Maintenance

Your Louver Shop of Orlando shutters are made with the best American hardwood to withstand expected wear and tear. We also offer one of the leading lifetime guarantees in the business to make sure your shutters stay in excellent shape.

More Insulation

Interior shutters are useful insulators and are an ideal choice for temperature control. We use an exclusive faux wood polymer in our LouverWood™ Shutters. This element is up to three times better at insulating than simple wood shutters, and may help you lessen energy charges.

Horizontal Parkland Blinds


Blinds are the most popular window hangings.

Unlike shutters, they fasten to the inside of or above the window recess. They’re also produced in a wider selection of materials, colors and styles than shutters.

Consider these things when choosing between blinds and interior shutters:


Blinds are typically easier on the wallet than shutters, but our Hunter Douglas blinds don’t sacrifice our standards for affordable interior design. And select styles can be supplied with helpful motorized operating systems you can regulate with your phone.

Light Control and Privacy

Blinds afford an incredible deal of light control and privacy, whether you need horizontal blinds or vertical blinds. Both styles protect against strong sunlight. They also help avoid sun damage to your furniture and flooring.

Highly Customizable

Blinds are made in a wide variety of different kinds of cloth types, colors and patterns. With so many alternatives to select from, Louver Shop of Orlando will help you create the perfect match for your home.

Both interior shutters and blinds are efficient in a selection of ways. Interior shutters add depth and a bit of timelessness to your house. They are also strong and can increase your home’s value.
