What Are The Different Types of Indoor Shutters?

Darik Neilson

Indoor shutters can be designed for different sizes and types of windows in your house. But not all interior shutters are alike. There are a number of different types of shutter to choose from, and different options within those categories with regards to construction, louver size, and beyond.

Let's look at the different options you have for interior shutters, and how each one can benefit your house.

Plantation shutters in Las Vegas are the most desired type of shutters because they bring in the light readily when open, save on energy when closed – and look beautiful either way.
 
The wide louvers are one of the aspects that differentiate plantation shutters from other window treatments. You can choose louvers from 2.5” to 4.5” wide. These large slats give you more view from your window and bring more light into the room. Attaching all the louvers together, the stiles are the solid vertical members of the shutter panel, allowing for the movement of the louvers in unison.
 
We present you with four superior types of indoor plantation shutters that are custom made to fit your windows perfectly: Polywood®Ovation® woodReclaimed Wood, and Studio Shutters.
 
Polywood Shutters 
 
Fashioned from a premium synthetic wood substitute, Polywood shutters won’t crack, split, warp, or chip. The superior colors on these indoor shutters won't lose their vibrancy when the sunlight touches them because of our unique paint that’s baked onto each shutter and infused with UV stabilizers.
 
Ovation wood shutters 
 
Ovation shutters are handmade from furniture-grade teak and are available in a variety of stains to enhance your current furniture and decor.
 
 Reclaimed Wood Shutters
 
Reclaimed Wood shutters are built from repurposed old wood that was once a part of fences, barns and other structures. Each wood louver is unique, and together they create a shutter that’s not only functional, but also a modern work of art for your windows.
 
 
The newest addition to the Sunburst family, Studio Shutters are a classic style plantation shutter that has the same clean style as our Polywood shutters. With a few less options than other plantation shutters, Studio shutters are a beautiful choice for homeowners who want to stay within a budget with their window treatments.
 

Traditional Colonial Shutters

Colonial Shutters

If you want smaller louvers and a traditional look, colonial shutters are an older choice for Las Vegas.
 
The sizes for colonial louvers typically range from 0.75” to 1.25”.
 
We can’t hide the fact that plantation shutters are the preferred type of shutter in Las Vegas. When it comes to shutters that exude charm and reduce your energy bills, louver size is key. Whereas colonial shutters are made with smaller louvers, Polywood and Ovation plantation shutters – with their larger louvers and energy efficiency – are your top choice. And note: larger louvers are a piece of cake to clean and adjust.
