Interior Shutters

Rather than blinds, shutters are fixed to the window frame themself. If you’re looking to add value to your house, Louver Shop of Atlanta offers more than a few beautiful possibilities. Some of the advantages of choosing interior shutters include:

Sturdy and Long-Lasting

While interior shutters are more expensive to place, they can stick around for years to come. We know our Traditional Shutters are well-loved for a reason. All this time later, we’re one of the few manufacturers who still construct them.

Less Maintenance

Your Louver Shop of Atlanta shutters are assembled with the finest American hardwood to withstand normal wear and tear. We also supply one of the best lifetime guarantees in the business to ensure your shutters stay in first-rate condition.

Increased Insulation

Interior shutters are useful insulators and are a fantastic choice for indoor temperature control. We employ an exclusive faux wood polymer in our LouverWood® Shutters. This component is up to three times more insulating than regular wood shutters, and can help you reduce utility expenses.

Blinds are the most frequently used window hangings.

Unlike shutters, they are fixed to the inside of or above the window recess. They’re also created in a wider assortment of fabrics, colors and fashions than shutters.

Consider these things when picking between blinds and interior shutters:


Blinds are typically more economical than shutters, but our Hunter Douglas blinds don’t give up quality for affordable interior design. And some styles can be supplied with useful motorized operating systems you can control with your phone.

Light Control and Privacy

Blinds allow for a great deal of light control and privacy, whether you are looking at horizontal blinds or vertical blinds. Both types protect against bright sunlight. They also prevent sun damage to your furniture and flooring.

Exceptionally Customizable

Blinds come in many different kinds of cloth types, colors and patterns. With so many options to choose from, Louver Shop of Atlanta will help you create the best look for your home.
