Why Choose Shutters?
With their classic, built-in look, shutters enhance the architectural quality of your windows, making them the only window treatment that adds value to your home. Not only are they a smart choice for light control and energy efficiency, they also help reduce noise from outdoors. All of our styles are handcrafted in the USA and are inherently cordless, making them extra safe for homes with young children. Work with our in-home designers or design your shutters yourself, and consider using our measuring and installation services (available in most areas).

Design Tips for Shutters
Factor in the size of the room and ceiling height when choosing your louver size. The larger the louver, the more light and view you'll enjoy when they're open. The 3½ inch louver works in most rooms and is our most popular size. Larger rooms, especially those with views, require our 4½ inch louver. For smaller windows, choose 2½ inch.
Soften the look of shutters by adding fabric layers like panels. It's a stylish way to bring drama to the window and gain even more light control.
Consider divider rails when designing your shutters. They allow you to open the top set of louvers independently of the bottom, resulting in more light and air while still maintaining privacy.
