Interior Shutters

Rather than blinds, shutters attach to the window frame for a more permanent option. If you’re hoping to add value to your home, Louver Shop of Louisiana provides numerous gorgeous options. Various benefits of going with interior shutters include:

Secure and Long-Lasting

While interior shutters are pricier to start, they can stay in your home for life. We understand our Traditional Shutters are popular for a reason. Years and years later, we’re one of the only businesses who still supply them.

Low Maintenance

Your Louver Shop of Louisiana shutters are made with the best American hardwood to stand up against normal wear and tear. We also offer one of the most extensive lifetime guarantees in the business to make certain your shutters stay in great shape.

Increased Insulation

Interior shutters are exceptional 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 superior at insulating than simple wood shutters, and may help you cut down on utility expenses.

Horizontal Parkland Blinds


Blinds are the most commonly seen window hangings.

Opposite of shutters, they are fixed to the inner part of or above the window recess. They’re also created in a wider range of materials, colors and styles than shutters.

Reflect on these things when making up your mind between blinds and interior shutters:


Blinds are typically less expensive than shutters, but our Hunter Douglas blinds don’t sacrifice value for affordable interior design. And select styles can be supplied with modern motorized operating systems you can work with your phone.

Light Control and Privacy

Blinds give you an incredible deal of light control and privacy, whether you want horizontal blinds or vertical blinds. Both styles push back against strong sunlight. They also stop sun damage to your furniture and flooring.

Very Customizable

Blinds are made in a selection of different kinds of fabrics, colors and patterns. With so many alternatives to pick from, Louver Shop of Louisiana will help you find the best look for your home.
