Here are some differences between blinds and shutters.

Interior Shutters

Unlike blinds, shutters are joined to the window frame for a more permanent option. If you’re looking to add value to your home’s worth, Louver Shop of Charleston offers many stylish options. A couple of the benefits of choosing interior shutters include:

Secure and Long-Lasting

While interior shutters carry a higher price to install, they can stay in your home for life. We recognize our Traditional Shutters are in-demand for a reason. Many years later, we’re one of the last manufacturers who still supply them.

Simple Maintenance

Your Louver Shop of Charleston shutters are made with high-quality American hardwood to stand up to everyday wear and tear. We also provide one of the leading lifetime guarantees in the industry to make certain your shutters stay in first-rate repair.

Increased Insulation

Interior shutters are exceptional insulators and are an ideal choice for indoor temperature control. We use an exclusive faux wood polymer in our LouverWood® Shutters. This material is up to three times more insulating than normal wood shutters, and can help you lessen energy expenses.

Horizontal Parkland Blinds


Blinds are the most frequently used window coverings.

Unlike shutters, they are fixed to the inside of or above the window recess. They’re also created in a wider collection of materials, colors and styles than shutters.

Contemplate these things when choosing between blinds and interior shutters:


Blinds are typically lower in cost than shutters, but our Hunter Douglas blinds don’t sacrifice value for budget-friendly interior design. And select styles are available with useful motorized operating systems you can work with your phone.

Light Control and Privacy

Blinds offer a great deal of light control and privacy, whether you are searching for horizontal blinds or vertical blinds. Both types push back against blinding sunlight. They also stop sun damage to your furniture and flooring.

Extremely Customizable

Blinds are produced in a selection of different kinds of fabrics, colors and patterns. With so many possibilities to choose from, Louver Shop of Charleston will help you make the perfect look for your home.

So which option is right for you?

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

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