Horizon Custom Shutters
Horizon Shutters originated in 1979 as a local company in Springfield, Missouri
selling and installing interior custom shutters for thousands of homes and commercial buildings
throughout the Midwest.
In 1997, we broadened our scope to become the first company to sell indoor custom wood shutters exclusively and nationwide online. We later added poly shutters to meet the demand for durable synthetic plantation shutters. Thousands of sales later we enjoy a reputation as the leader in
the window shutters industry and a model that others seek to copy.
Our indoor custom shutters are American made and shipped direct to your front door. Using time
tested techniques, we construct top quality traditional colonial shutters and
plantation shutters thoughtfully designed for fit, fashion and function.
Every member of our staff has logged hundreds of hours measuring, building,
finishing, and installing traditional and plantation custom shutters - and we use this
expertise to answer all questions you may have about indoor shutters for your home. You may
contacts us by phone, fax or e-mail.
In 2003, we introduced
ShutterLand Exterior Shutters. This line
of premium-quality standard sizes wood exterior shutters are constructed from solid incense cedar.
Exterior shutters are sold as individual panels with louvers, raised panels, or a combination of both. View outdoor shutters online and order unfinished, ready to paint or stain, or fully painted.
In 2007, Ready Shutters began selling vinyl exterior shutters. These synthetic outside shutters are non-functioning, installed for
aesthetic purposes only. Ready Shutters offers exterior vinyl shutters in multiple styles and colors,
including louvered, board-and-batten, raised panel, shaker, and arch top panels.
Horizon Shutters exercises ethical business practices. Our primary concern is simply that our
