LouverWood Shutters in a Sunroom

Interior Shutters

Unlike blinds, shutters fasten to the window frame themself. If you’re hoping to add value to your home, Louver Shop of Wichita provides more than a few attractive choices. A few of the pros of choosing interior shutters include:

Sturdy and Long-Lasting

While interior shutters are more expensive to place, they can last a lifetime. We get that our Traditional Shutters are popular for a reason. Many years later, we’re one of the last manufacturers who still supply them.

Less Maintenance

Your Louver Shop of Wichita shutters are created with high-quality American hardwood to stand up against normal wear and tear. We also provide one of the most extensive lifetime guarantees in the business to make sure your shutters stay in good repair.

More Insulation

Interior shutters are useful insulators and are perfect choice for climate control. We work with an exclusive faux wood polymer in our LouverWood™ Shutters. This substance is up to three times superior at insulating than simple wood shutters, and may help you reduce electricity charges.

Horizontal Parkland Blinds


Blinds are the most frequently used window coverings.

Opposite of shutters, they are fixed to the inner part of or above the window recess. They’re also created in a wider variety of fabrics, colors and fashions than shutters.

Examine these things when picking between blinds and interior shutters:


Blinds are typically easier on the wallet than shutters, but our Hunter Douglas blinds don’t let go of value for affordable interior design. And some styles can be supplied with useful motorized operating systems you can control with your phone.

Light Control and Privacy

Blinds afford an incredible deal of light control and privacy, whether you want horizontal blinds or vertical blinds. Both styles push back against bright sunlight. They also prevent sun damage to your furniture and flooring.

Highly Customizable

Blinds are available in a selection of different kinds of cloth types, colors and patterns. With so many options to choose from, Louver Shop of Wichita will help you create the perfect match for your home.
