Interior Shutters

Unlike blinds, shutters fasten to the window frame for a more permanent option. If you’re looking to add value to your house, Louver Shop of Raleigh has more than a few gorgeous options. A few of the benefits of choosing interior shutters include:

Sturdy and Long-Lasting

While interior shutters are more expensive to start, they can last for life. We recognize our Traditional Shutters are in-demand for a reason. Many years later, we’re one of the few manufacturers who still supply them.

Low Maintenance

Your Louver Shop of Raleigh shutters are assembled with the finest American hardwood to stand up against everyday wear and tear. We also supply one of the leading lifetime guarantees in the business to assure your shutters stay in good condition.

Better Insulation

Interior shutters are exceptional insulators and are a fantastic choice for climate control. We work with an exclusive faux wood polymer in our LouverWood® Shutters. This material is up to three times more insulating than simple wood shutters, and could help you save on energy expenses.

Horizontal Parkland Blinds


Blinds are the most common window coverings.

Unlike shutters, they are joined to the interior of or above the window recess. They’re also produced in a wider variety of elements, colors and looks 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 give up our standards for cost-effective interior design. And select styles can be supplied with modern motorized operating systems you can move with your phone.

Light Control and Privacy

Blinds afford a huge deal of light control and privacy, whether you are looking at horizontal blinds or vertical blinds. Both types defend against bright sunlight. They also help avoid sun damage to your furniture and flooring.

Very Customizable

Blinds are available in a selection of different kinds of fabrics, colors and patterns. With so many possibilities to select from, Louver Shop of Raleigh will help you find the best look for your home.
