Here are a selection of distinctions between blinds and shutters.

Interior Shutters

Rather than blinds, shutters are fixed to the window frame themself. If you’re looking to add value to your house, Louver Shop of Cincinnati offers more than a few beautiful choices. Some of the advantages of going with interior shutters include:

Secure and Long-Lasting

While interior shutters are pricier to put in, they can remain in your home a lifetime. We know our Traditional Shutters are popular for a reason. Years and years later, we’re one of the select manufacturers who still make them.

Less Maintenance

Your Louver Shop of Cincinnati shutters are assembled with the best American hardwood to stand up against usual wear and tear. We also provide one of the most extensive lifetime guarantees in the industry to assure your shutters stay in excellent repair.

More Insulation

Interior shutters are good insulators and are an ideal 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 traditional wood shutters, and could help you cut down on utility bills.

Horizontal Parkland Blinds


Blinds are the most common window hangings.

Compared to shutters, they are joined to the inner part of or above the window recess. They’re also created in a wider selection of materials, colors and fashions than shutters.

Think about these things when making up your mind between blinds and interior shutters:


Blinds are typically easier on the wallet than shutters, but our Hunter Douglas blinds don’t let go of quality for cost-effective interior design. And select styles can be equipped with convenient motorized operating systems you can work with your phone.

Light Control and Privacy

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

Extremely Customizable

Blinds are made in a selection of different kinds of fabrics, colors and patterns. With so many things to choose from, Louver Shop of Cincinnati will help you create the best look for your home.
