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 Macon offers many stylish options. A couple of the benefits of going with interior shutters include:

Durable and Long-Lasting

While interior shutters carry a higher price to put in, they can stick around for life. We get that our Traditional Shutters are popular for a reason. All this time later, we’re one of the last companies who still create them.

Low Maintenance

Your Louver Shop of Macon shutters are created with the finest American hardwood to stand up to expected wear and tear. We also provide one of the most extensive lifetime guarantees in the business to assure your shutters stay in first-rate condition.

Superior Insulation

Interior shutters are useful insulators and are a fantastic choice for climate control. We utilize an exclusive faux wood polymer in our LouverWood® Shutters. This element is up to three times better at insulating than normal wood shutters, and could help you save on electricity costs.

Horizontal Parkland Blinds


Blinds are the most prevalent window coverings.

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

Think about these things when choosing between blinds and interior shutters:


Blinds are typically lower in cost than shutters, but our Hunter Douglas blinds don’t give up our standards for budget-friendly interior design. And select styles can be supplied with modern motorized operating systems you can command with your phone.

Light Control and Privacy

Blinds allow for a huge deal of light control and privacy, whether you need horizontal blinds or vertical blinds. Both styles protect against blinding sunlight. They also stop sun damage to your furniture and flooring.

Highly Customizable

Blinds are made in many different kinds of materials, colors and patterns. With so many options to select from, Louver Shop of Macon will help you create the best look for your home.
