Here are a few differences between blinds and shutters.

Interior Shutters

Rather than blinds, shutters fasten to the window frame for a more permanent option. If you’re looking to add value to your home’s worth, Louver Shop of Colorado has many stylish selections. Some of the pros of picking interior shutters include:

Secure and Long-Lasting

While interior shutters cost more to place, they can stick around for decades. We know our Traditional Shutters are in-demand for a reason. Years and years later, we’re one of the last manufacturers who still produce them.

Easy Maintenance

Your Louver Shop of Colorado shutters are made with high-quality American hardwood to stand up against usual wear and tear. We also offer one of the most extensive lifetime guarantees in the industry to make certain your shutters stay in good condition.

Increased Insulation

Interior shutters are exceptional insulators and are a smart choice for indoor temperature control. We work with an exclusive faux wood polymer in our LouverWood® Shutters. This element is up to three times more insulating than regular wood shutters, and may help you save on energy expenses.

Blinds are the most common window coverings.

Compared to shutters, they are joined to the interior of or above the window recess. They’re also made in a wider variety of elements, colors and fashions than shutters.

Contemplate these things when deciding between blinds and interior shutters:


Blinds are typically easier on the wallet than shutters, but our Hunter Douglas blinds don’t sacrifice quality for budget-friendly interior design. And some styles are available with helpful motorized operating systems you can control with your phone.

Light Control and Privacy

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

Extremely Customizable

Blinds are made in many different kinds of fabrics, colors and patterns. With so many possibilities to choose from, Louver Shop of Colorado will help you create the best style for your home.

So which window treatment is right for you?

Both interior shutters and blinds are helpful in a selection of ways. Interior shutters add luxury and a sense of timelessness to your rooms. They are also lasting and can increase your home’s value.
