Interior Shutters

In contrast to blinds, shutters fasten to the window frame for a more permanent option. If you’re hoping to add value to your home, Louver Shop of Tampa has numerous gorgeous possibilities. Some of the advantages of choosing interior shutters include:

Durable and Long-Lasting

While interior shutters are more expensive to start, they can last for life. We know our Traditional Shutters are popular for a reason. Years and years later, we’re one of the few manufacturers who still make them.

Simple Maintenance

Your Louver Shop of Tampa shutters are created with the best American hardwood to withstand usual wear and tear. We also provide one of the most extensive lifetime guarantees in the industry to make sure your shutters stay in good repair.

More Insulation

Interior shutters are great insulators and are an excellent choice for temperature control. We employ an exclusive faux wood polymer in our LouverWood® Shutters. This component is up to three times better at insulating than conventional wood shutters, and could help you save on utility costs.
