Interior Shutters

Rather than blinds, shutters fasten to the window frame for a more permanent option. If you’re wanting to add value to your home, Louver Shop of Dallas/Fort Worth provides more than a few gorgeous possibilities. Some of the pros of going with interior shutters include:

Sturdy and Long-Lasting

While interior shutters cost more to put in, they can stay in your home for years to come. We understand our Traditional Shutters are popular for a reason. All this time later, we’re one of the last companies who still construct them.

Simple Maintenance

Your Louver Shop of Dallas/Fort Worth shutters are made with high-quality American hardwood to hold up under expected wear and tear. We also have one of the most extensive lifetime guarantees in the business to make certain your shutters stay in good shape.

Superior Insulation

Interior shutters are useful insulators and are an excellent choice for temperature control. We apply an exclusive faux wood polymer in our LouverWood® Shutters. This substance is up to three times better at insulating than conventional wood shutters, and could help you reduce electricity bills.

Blinds are the most commonly seen window coverings.

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

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


Blinds are typically lower in cost than shutters, but our Hunter Douglas blinds don’t give up quality for affordable interior design. And select styles can be equipped with helpful motorized operating systems you can move with your phone.

Light Control and Privacy

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

Very Customizable

Blinds are made in quite a few different kinds of cloth types, colors and patterns. With so many things to pick from, Louver Shop of Dallas/Fort Worth will help you create the ideal look for your home.
