Plantation Shutters

Not only will you save energy all year round, but you’ll also save on your energy bill! Our louvers are also made without dangerous cords, so this is a stylish and safe option for families with pets and children.

Traditional Shutters

Traditional shutters are for those who favor a historical design style. This classic style of window shutters is known for its narrow frame and 1 ¼ miniature louvers. Traditional shutters are often mistaken for plantation shutters; Interestingly, they are pretty different styles. Traditional shutters are typically only crafted with natural hardwood. This style looks incredible in any house, but traditional shutters especially look at home with an Earth-tone color palette and traditional interior design.

Louver Shop’s traditional shutters are handcrafted with furniture-grade basswood and are always finished with a tough, moisture-resistant seal; You can trust traditional wood shutters will look beautiful and last a lifetime.

Poly (Faux Wood) Shutters

This interior window shutter style earned its name from the material used to craft the shutters. Hardwood typically composes classic shutter styles, while a solid synthetic polymer, like PVC, comprises poly shutters. Poly shutters are great for high-traffic homes, especially in rooms with high humidity or moisture. 100% of Louver Shop’s LouverWood™ Poly Plantation Shutters shutters are solid, cellular PVC not the flimsy hollow PVC offered at other shutter manufacturers.
