Interior Shutters

Unlike blinds, shutters fasten to the window frame for a more permanent option. If you’re wanting to add value to your home’s worth, Louver Shop of Boston has more than a few gorgeous possibilities. Various pros of selecting interior shutters include:

Secure and Long-Lasting

While interior shutters are pricier to start, they can stay in your home for life. We know our Traditional Shutters are well-loved for a reason. Years and years later, we’re one of the select manufacturers who still create them.

Easy Maintenance

Your Louver Shop of Boston shutters are created with high-quality American hardwood to withstand usual wear and tear. We also have one of the most extensive lifetime guarantees in the business to ensure your shutters stay in excellent shape.

Increased Insulation

Interior shutters are useful insulators and are a fantastic choice for climate control. We use an exclusive faux wood polymer in our LouverWood® Shutters. This element is up to three times more insulating than normal wood shutters, and may help you cut down on electricity bills.

Horizontal Parkland Blinds


Blinds are the most common window hangings.

Unlike shutters, they fasten to the interior of or above the window recess. They’re also made in a wider selection of fabrics, colors and fashions than shutters.

Consider these things when deciding between blinds and interior shutters:


Blinds are typically lower in cost than shutters, but our Hunter Douglas blinds don’t sacrifice our standards for cost-effective interior design. And many styles are available with convenient motorized operating systems you can control 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 push back against bright sunlight. They also prevent sun damage to your furniture and flooring.

Very Customizable

Blinds are made in quite a few different kinds of fabrics, colors and patterns. With so many options to choose from, Louver Shop of Boston will help you find the best match for your home.
