Reasons We Love Traditional Louvers

A beautiful and classic way to adorn your windows, there are so many things to love about traditional louvers. One of our favorite ways to add a touch of style to almost any room, louvers are extremely versatile as well as durable. Nowadays, many homes incorporate shutters on the outside of their window, but the addition of indoor shutters with louvers is both elegant and useful.


Complimentary to many home décor styles, traditional shutters with 1-1/4” louvers or slats can blend seamlessly into almost any room. They are also extremely versatile when it comes to how much light you would like to let in.

Open the shutters all the way up during beautiful summer day, lower the louvers on Friday night when you plan on sleeping in, and leave them halfway open to keep your home cool while you’re away at work.


Not only are louvers versatile in use and style, they are also more durable than most other window treatments. An easy way to increase the value of your home, louvers will never go out of style and will be an added bonus for potential buyers when you are looking to move into a new place.
