Interior window shutters block and shade sunlight, provide some insulation during hot and cold weather, and add a decorative element to a home. Interior shutters are made of vinyl or wood and almost always have louvers for light control. They are sold painted, stained, or unfinished.

Typical costs:

  • Interior window shutters cost $20-$700 per window covered. The cost varies depending on the type of material used, size of panels, and complexity of construction. Premade, standard-sized vinyl shutters cost from $20-$150. Made-to-measure interior window shutters in inexpensive wood or vinyl cost $150-$300. Custom-made hardwood interior shutters are the most expensive at $250-$700, but these often the most durable and attractive.
  • Interior shutters can be hard to find in big-box stores. Check blinds.com $40-$200. A few national chains such as 3 Day Blinds also sell interior shutters. Many retailers do not publish prices; instead prospective customers provide measurements and specific requirements, then the store gives a quote for the product or completed job.
  • Internet-based companies such as Horizon Shutters[1] and Shutter Land[2] will custom-make and ship interior shutters to order for $250-$700 per window covered, not including shipping. Price depends on materials used, complexity of construction and size of shutters.

What should be included:
  • Interior window shutters usually but not always include the shutters, installation hardware and the hang strips to hang the shutters from.
  • Name-brand manufacturers may provide a limited warranty with their interior shutters. Register online or mail in the warranty card ASAP to be sure that shutters are covered for warranty work.
Additional costs:
  • If hang strips and hardware are not included with the price of the shutter panels, expect to pay $4-$15 for hang strips and about $4 for a set of mounting hardware. Closure or locking hardware is not usually included with shutters. Interior shutter closures cost $1-$15 each depending on style, materials and quality.
  • Professional installation of interior shutters costs $100 and up for a typical house (4-12 windows), depending on the number of shutters to be installed and the complexity of the installation.
  • Shipping for interior shutters purchased online can range from $30-$70 per shutter or set of shutters for one window.
Discounts:
  • AllAboutShutters.com gives tips[3] on minimizing the costs of interior window shutters.
  • 3-Day Blinds offers a free quote and discount Internet coupon for interior window shutters.
  • Regardless of some retailer recommendations, interior window shutters can be installed by a skilled do-it-yourselfer to minimize costs. Doityourself.com[4] explains how to install shutters without professional assistance.
Shopping for interior shutters:
  • Before purchasing or ordering interior window shutters, decide whether to install the shutters inside the window casing or outside. Measure each window accurately to 1/16 of an inch. AllAboutShutters.com provides instructions[5] for measuring windows for interior shutters. If window measurements match the sizes available in inexpensive premade shutters, costly custom shutters may not be necessary.
  • Learn about different styles of interior shutters such as plantation and traditional[6] on AllAboutShutters.com .
  • Before shopping for interior shutters and paying for installation at a local store, be sure the company has a good reputation. Check with the Better Business Bureau[7] to find a window treatment shop's record.
  • Browse Amazon[8] for online shops that sell interior shutters.
