Interior Shutters

Unlike blinds, shutters are joined to the window frame for a more permanent option. If you’re ready to add value to your house, Louver Shop of Savannah provides quite a few attractive possibilities. A few of the benefits of going with interior shutters include:

Durable and Long-Lasting

While interior shutters are pricier to start, they can stick around a lifetime. We know our Traditional Shutters are popular for a reason. All this time later, we’re one of the last companies who still supply them.

Low Maintenance

Your Louver Shop of Savannah shutters are created with the finest American hardwood to stand up against normal wear and tear. We also supply one of the leading lifetime guarantees in the business to ensure your shutters stay in first-rate repair.

Increased Insulation

Interior shutters are great insulators and are an excellent 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 traditional wood shutters, and could help you reduce utility charges.

Horizontal Parkland Blinds


Blinds are the most commonly seen window treatments.

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

Think about 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 abandon value for budget-friendly interior design. And many styles can be equipped with useful motorized operating systems you can command with your phone.

Light Control and Privacy

Blinds allow for a huge deal of light control and privacy, whether you are looking at horizontal blinds or vertical blinds. Both orientations defend against blinding sunlight. They also hamper sun damage to your furniture and flooring.

Highly Customizable

Blinds are produced in quite a few different kinds of fabrics, colors and patterns. With so many alternatives to select from, Louver Shop of Savannah will help you find the best style for your home.

So which choice is best for your home?

Both interior shutters and blinds are useful in different ways. Interior shutters add richness and a look of timelessness to your house. They are also lasting and can improve your home’s value.

Blinds are more economical and attractive options that are straightforward to work and clean. Plus, you can choose from more materials, fabrics and colors to work with your home.
