Though they can be used in windows of any size.

 

2 1/2 inch louvers are recommended for older houses that have smaller windows.

3 1/2 inch louver

3 1/2 inch louver

Our most popular size, 3 1/2 inch louvers offer a contemporary look. They also offer a more open view through the shutters than those of 2 1/2 inch louvers.

 

Panels with 3 1/2 inch louvers can be built wider than those built with 2 1/2 inch louvers.

 

Though appropriate for windows of any size, they are best suited to houses with larger windows.

2 1/2 inch louver

4 1/2 inch louver

4 1/2 inch louvers offer a dramatic and contemporary look. They offer the most unobstructed views through the shutters than other louver sizes. Because of the size of the louvers, they are typically mounted further away from the surface of the window and tend to protrude into the room.

 

Panels with 4 1/2 inch louvers can be built wider than those built with 2 1/2 inch louvers. This size is best suited to houses with larger windows.
