Want to change out your window treatments in Memphis but not sure where to dive in? We’ve compared the difference between two of our most popular styles—custom plantation shutters
and horizontal blinds
Both have you covered for privacy and light control. But they have several distinct features.
Plantation shutters have wide louvers. This classic window treatment mounts on your window frame. They’re often seen in white, off-white or natural stain colors. Or matched to the color of your choosing.
While the louvers are managed by a visible or hidden tilt rod, the shutters can also open away from windows much like a door.
They’re available as either:
- Wood plantation shutters
- Faux wood plantation shutters
- Vinyl plantation shutters

Blinds have slim slats created from metal, wood, fabric or comparable materials. This cost-effective window treatment comes in a range of colors and textures.
Window blinds are often operated by a pull cord, although some styles are cordless.
They’re available in styles like vertical blinds or horizontal blinds.
Wood horizontal blinds or faux wood horizontal blinds are sometimes referred to as plantation blinds because of their wide slats.

4. Safe for Your Family
Plantation shutters are cordless, so you don’t have to worry if your household has little children or pets.
At Louver Shop of Memphis, we use nontoxic, water-based finishes that are safe for your family and the environment.
Foreign-made shutters are usually coated with paints high in volatile organic compounds, which can cause headaches and dizziness.

Shutters are simple to clean with a duster or rag. Ours don’t have to have a lot of maintenance, because they’ll never demand tightening or adjustment.

We designed our quality shutters to last for decades. As a custom, permanent window treatment, they can also increase your home’s value.
How do Shutters Compare to Blinds?
Interior shutters are an investment in your home and offer an abundance of benefits.
While window blinds are typically less costly, you’ll need to replace them more often. They also don’t afford as much energy efficiency.
