Interior Shutters

Unlike blinds, shutters are joined to the window frame themself. If you’re hoping to add value to your home, Louver Shop of Columbus has numerous attractive choices. Some of the benefits of going with interior shutters include:

Durable and Long-Lasting

While interior shutters cost more to start, they can last for life. We recognize our Traditional Shutters are well-loved for a reason. All this time later, we’re one of the only manufacturers who still create them.

Simple Maintenance

Your Louver Shop of Columbus shutters are made with high-quality American hardwood to withstand normal wear and tear. We also supply one of the most extensive lifetime guarantees in the trade to ensure your shutters stay in good repair.

Superior Insulation

Interior shutters are great insulators and are a smart choice for climate control. We work with an exclusive faux wood polymer in our LouverWood™ Shutters. This component is up to three times superior at insulating than conventional wood shutters, and could help you lower electricity charges.

Horizontal Parkland Blinds


Blinds are the most common window hangings.

Unlike shutters, they fasten to the inner part of or above the window recess. They’re also available in a wider selection of materials, colors and fashions than shutters.

Consider these things when deciding between blinds and interior shutters:


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

Light Control and Privacy

Blinds provide a great deal of light control and privacy, whether you need horizontal blinds or vertical blinds. Both orientations protect against strong sunlight. They also prevent sun damage to your furniture and flooring.

Extremely Customizable

Blinds come in a selection of different kinds of materials, colors and patterns. With so many alternatives to choose from, Louver Shop of Columbus will help you find the best style for your home.
