Interior window shutters have long been a traditional and beautiful addition to any home and are also considered an investment that will add lasting value to a home.

Shutters create an attractive, yet functional solution for any room.

Shutters can control heat, noise, and privacy. These products offer excellent light control and provide superior ultraviolet protection.

The timeless elegance of shutters adds an enduring touch to traditional, contemporary, city or country surroundings.

Most shutters are offered in multiple configurations to cover all types of windows including bow, bay, French doors, patio doors and specialty shapes.

Most shutters offer varying louver sizes and front tilt or hidden tilt bars for unobstructed views.

Shutters are offered in different materials consisting of real wood or vinyl and alternative wood or faux-wood.

Shutters can be installed inside mount or outside mount depending on the window molding and sill construction.

If you are considering shutters, always think about opening the shutter doors and whether or not any obstructions exist.  For example, a kitchen faucet can be an obstacle to opening a shutter installed behind a kitchen sink.
