Interior Shutters

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

Durable 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. Many years later, we’re one of the few businesses who still make them.

Less Maintenance

Your Louver Shop of San Antonio shutters are crafted with high-quality American hardwood to withstand everyday wear and tear. We also supply one of the leading lifetime guarantees in the business to make sure your shutters stay in excellent condition.

Better Insulation

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

Horizontal Parkland Blinds


Blinds are the most commonly seen 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 easier on the wallet than shutters, but our Hunter Douglas blinds don’t abandon value for affordable interior design. And many styles are available with helpful motorized operating systems you can control with your phone.

Light Control and Privacy

Blinds offer 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.

Exceptionally Customizable

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