Interior Shutters

Unlike blinds, shutters attach to the window frame for a more permanent option. If you’re hoping to add value to your house, Louver Shop of San Antonio has quite a few beautiful selections. Various advantages of choosing interior shutters include:

Sturdy and Long-Lasting

While interior shutters carry a higher price to start, they can remain in your home for years to come. We recognize our Traditional Shutters are well-loved for a reason. All this time later, we’re one of the few businesses who still supply them.

Simple Maintenance

Your Louver Shop of San Antonio shutters are created with high-quality American hardwood to withstand everyday wear and tear. We also supply one of the best lifetime guarantees in the industry to make sure your shutters stay in first-rate condition.

Better Insulation

Interior shutters are great insulators and are a smart choice for climate control. We employ an exclusive faux wood polymer in our LouverWood® Shutters. This element is up to three times better at insulating than regular wood shutters, and could help you lower electricity costs.

Horizontal Parkland Blinds


Blinds are the most prevalent window hangings.

Opposite of shutters, they are fixed to the inside of or above the window recess. They’re also made in a wider selection of elements, colors and styles than shutters.

Contemplate these things when choosing between blinds and interior shutters:


Blinds are typically more economical than shutters, but our Hunter Douglas blinds don’t let go of value for affordable interior design. And many styles are available with helpful motorized operating systems you can move with your phone.

Light Control and Privacy

Blinds provide an incredible deal of light control and privacy, whether you need horizontal blinds or vertical blinds. Both orientations defend against bright sunlight. They also stop sun damage to your furniture and flooring.

Extremely Customizable

Blinds come in many different kinds of cloth types, colors and patterns. With so many possibilities to choose from, Louver Shop of San Antonio will help you design the perfect match for your home.

So which choice is a fit for your space?

Both interior shutters and blinds are practical in different ways. Interior shutters add richness and a look of timelessness to your space. They are also strong and can add to your home’s value.

Blinds are more economical and stylish options that are easy to use and clean. Plus, you can decide from more materials, fabrics and colors to match your home.
