Here are the important variations between blinds and shutters.

Interior Shutters

In contrast to blinds, shutters connect to the window frame themself. If you’re hoping to add value to your home’s worth, Louver Shop of Memphis offers quite a few stylish choices. Some of the benefits of picking interior shutters include:

Durable and Long-Lasting

While interior shutters are more expensive to start, they can remain in your home for decades. We understand our Traditional Shutters are well-loved for a reason. Many years later, we’re one of the few manufacturers who still supply them.

Simple Maintenance

Your Louver Shop of Memphis shutters are created with high-quality American hardwood to stand up to everyday wear and tear. We also have one of the best lifetime guarantees in the business to make certain your shutters stay in great repair.

Superior Insulation

Interior shutters are good insulators and are an ideal choice for temperature control. We use an exclusive faux wood polymer in our LouverWood™ Shutters. This material is up to three times more insulating than regular wood shutters, and can help you reduce utility costs.

Horizontal Parkland Blinds


Blinds are the most common window hangings.

Opposite of shutters, they attach to the inside of or above the window recess. They’re also produced in a wider array of materials, colors and fashions than shutters.

Reflect on these things when choosing between blinds and interior shutters:


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

Light Control and Privacy

Blinds afford a huge deal of light control and privacy, whether you are searching for horizontal blinds or vertical blinds. Both orientations protect against bright sunlight. They also hamper sun damage to your furniture and flooring.

Very Customizable

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