Interior Shutters

In contrast to blinds, shutters are fixed to the window frame for a more permanent option. If you’re looking to add value to your home, Louver Shop of Kansas City has many attractive possibilities. Various benefits of picking interior shutters include:

Sturdy and Long-Lasting

While interior shutters are pricier to up front, they can stay in your home for years to come. We get that our Traditional Shutters are popular for a reason. All this time later, we’re one of the select manufacturers who still supply them.

Low Maintenance

Your Louver Shop of Kansas City shutters are made with the finest American hardwood to withstand normal wear and tear. We also have one of the best lifetime guarantees in the industry to make certain your shutters stay in great repair.

More Insulation

Interior shutters are exceptional insulators and are an ideal choice for indoor temperature control. We work with an exclusive faux wood polymer in our LouverWood™ Shutters. This component is up to three times better at insulating than simple wood shutters, and can help you lower utility costs.

Horizontal Parkland Blinds


Blinds are the most frequently used window hangings.

Opposite of shutters, they fasten to the inner surface of or above the window recess. They’re also created in a wider variety of materials, colors and looks 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 value for cost-effective interior design. And many styles can be equipped with convenient motorized operating systems you can command with your phone.

Light Control and Privacy

Blinds offer a great deal of light control and privacy, whether you want horizontal blinds or vertical blinds. Both types protect against blinding sunlight. They also hamper sun damage to your furniture and flooring.

Highly Customizable

Blinds come in quite a few different kinds of cloth types, colors and patterns. With so many possibilities to choose from, Louver Shop of Kansas City will help you find the best match for your home.
