I just wanted to let you know that we received the indoor shutters last week and installed them over the weekend. They look great! I was very pleased with the product and the custom paint color.

Want you to know that the traditional shutters arrived on schedule and I have had them installed. They look great! Thanks for all your help with the ordering and sizing and look forward to getting more shutters from you in the future.

We just wanted to say what a great product you have. We installed our inside shutters and they look great!! Ordering shutters was easy and when I had a question, I was impressed with the knowledge of the gentleman to whom I spoke. The supporting materials that came with the shutters were clear and easy to read. Thanks for making this process a delight.

Jane H.

Just wanted to say that the shutters look amazing! Thank you and your team!

Ronald H.

The shutters look fabulous! My wife is already requesting Horizon interior shutters in other rooms. FYI - Your website was the best I found, Selection more than adequate, your personal attention whenever I called, and willingness to customize things a bit were all reasons to do business with your company . The product came very well packaged and is flawless . It is obvious that you all took pride in manufacturing it. Keep up the good work! Thank you so much for your help. Happy New Year to everyone at Horizon Shutters.

John Y.

We send our sincerest thanks for the amazing customer service you have given us over the past few years.

Meg H.

Oh my! The inside shutters I ordered came today and I am so excited! They are just beautiful. I feel so lucky to have found this company! You did everything you promised you would ... they are of the highest quality and were done exactly on time. Plus, I was able to stay in contact with Brian over the internet. The only downfall I see is that I am going to want to order shutters from you for every window in my house! Thank you so very much.

Margy B.

I was totally impressed with Horizon Interior Shutters. They have made the process of ordering custom shutters via the Internet/e-mail painless. The shutters where delivered in a very timely manner and the quality that you would expect. I would recommend Horizon Shutters to anyone needing custom interior shutters at prices that are hard to beat!.

Gene W.

I would recommend Horizon Shutters to anyone looking for shutter reviews. After finding them on the Internet, I received the most professional service possible. There was no hurry in just getting an order. Measurements were checked and then re-checked. All I can say is try them. My wife and I are very pleased and will use Horizon Shutters again very soon.

Bruce R.

We are so impressed with the quality of your shutters. Installation was an ease with your installation instructions. Your interior shutters were the finishing touch to our living room remodel. Your shutters look beautiful from inside the room as well as from outside the house. We can't stress enough how pleased we are in dealing with your company and its product. Thank you!

Michael & Keri M.

We received, and installed our shutters, and they were worth the wait. Our order looks great!

Pat F.

Aloha Brian, Just to let you know than I received my plantation window shutters last week and I already put them up. They are so beautiful and my wife loves them. I am amazed by the way your shutters can be adjusted. Some of my opening weren't square and by working with the adjustment every one of them fit like they were built in place. I also want to tell you than I am really pleased with the service you gave me. I am a general contractor and I order a lot from the mainland and I give an A+ for ordering, an A+ for the quality, and another A+ for packaging. Good job for your professionalism. Mahalo and keep the good work.

Sylvio B.

Just wanted to let you know we received our indoor shutter order and, as usual, were extremely satisfied. Your service and value is outstanding.

James S.

Thank you so much for the excellent traditional shutters! They arrived safely ahead of schedule. We waited until Thanksgiving weekend to put them up and everything was perfect. The quality is so wonderful, I can't get over how pleased we are!! It is rare to find such craftsmanship these days. Very helpful web site, too. They'll look great as a backdrop for our tree in our Christmas photos - Thanks again!!

Scott B.

Incredible quality. One of the best items I ordered through the web…..the packing was done with great care and the assembly was a snap. Great job….will certainly look to you for future items.

Vince C.

Our interior shutters are beautiful! The quality, the finish, the ordering process, the installation instructions, the incredible packing all get an EXCELLENT rating. We will definitely recommend Horizon Shutters in your shutter reviews.

Janice K.

We love our living room shutters!

Keri M.

My husband installed our traditioanl shutters. They are better than expected! Fit perfectly and finished like fine furniture! We are very pleased with the shutters, considering I found your web-site while surfing the net for wood interior shutters and "took a chance" on ordering. Excellent Quality!

Carol M.

I have been meaning to send you an e-mail. The shutters did not get up before Thanksgiving but they are up now. I love them! I am very impressed with the quality and they couldn't look more spectacular or perfect in our dining room. I just wanted you to know. Thanks for all of your help.

Robin C.

I was blown away by the quality of the shutters, the finish and how well each was packaged for shipment. Thank you. I will, and have already, definitely offer shutter reviews to those that ask about the beautiful shutters hanging in our vacation home in the NC mountains.

Terry W.

I received my plantation shutters last night and am very pleased. This is the second set of shutters I have purchased in the last three years. The product quality, appearance, finish and ease of install are amazing and truly impressive for the money spent. The packing of the final product was also amazing, and the attention to detail and care put into the shipping was impressive! Keep up the good work. I will refer anyone I can to your superior product, service, and packaging! I wish the rest of the world took the pride in the product as you show in all aspects of it. The web site too! Excellent!

Scott S.

I love my Horizon shutters. I would highly recommend them to anyone in the market for quality window shutters for their home. Thanks again for such wonderful service.

Linda J.

The quality of the shutters was outstanding and the packaging used for shipment provided absolute protection.

Richard G.

I ended up placing the actual order via telephone. Your phone reps were outstanding. Wish all on line experiences could be so pleasant and stressless. Fit when the finished product arrived was absolutely perfect and finish is beautiful. Matches woodwork exactly. Now I want to replace the old shutters on the other three windows in the room (we added a window where there was an old door), they look shabby by comparison.

Deborah L.

What a beautifully made product. We installed our new shutters, and I loved them so much, I am going to add them to other rooms. What a difference from the ones I ordered at a local home goods store. The paint was just like glass. I know, I tried painting shutters myself, and no matter what, I could never get a finish like this. Thanks for a superior product.

Ida W.

This is my second order with Horizon Shutters and I could not be more pleased. The shutters are very well made and the paint finish is very impressive. I was kept informed throughout the entire process. The packaging is nearly indestructible. Add to that a very user friendly web site and a courteous staff. Thanks and continued success.

W.K. E. W., MA

Thanks to your professionalism, we will have our beautiful shutters up before Christmas. They arrived by Fed Ex after dark yesterday -- and, of course, couldn't wait until today to open them and prop them up here and there in the two rooms. I told the man who so carefully took our order (all those details!) that I have waited 10 years for these shutters, and you know what? They are definitely worth the wait -- I'll just appreciate them that much more. We appreciate all of you who had something to do with creating this bright spot for our home this Holiday Season. And, we pray that love, warmth, and joy be part of each of your lives for the rest of this year and for all of next. We appreciate and respect the integrity of your ethics and work.

LaVonne & Tom T.

We are extremely happy with our shutters. The quality of the product and service was impeccable. We won't hesitate to use Horizon Shutters again.

Stephanie G.

Superior materials and craftsmanship. Beautiful design and operation. Easy to finish. We are very, very pleased with our Horizon shutters.

John Z.

Truly outstanding quality construction! These shutters are simply beautiful, adding warmth and elegance to the room. We highly recommend Horizon!

Larry J.

We are delighted with your product and service. Packing particularly was far in excess of anything we have ever encountered, and we have been in the business of providing furnishings to the hospitality industry for twenty five years. The shutters themselves are immaculate. Overall, we could not have asked for more. Thank you, job well done.

Anthony C.

I am very pleased with my purchase at Horizon Shutters. I would recommend this web site highly. Superior quality and service.

James W.

We have received the shutters and all is fine. The finished product is beautiful and the workmanship outstanding. Thank you for making such a quality product. If you ever need any reference, please let me know. Again, thank you.

W.A. J.

The build/finish quality of the shutters is excellent. I found the packaging to be excellent as well. Overall experience was excellent and I would not hesitate to buy from Horizon again.

A. Y.

I just wanted to let you know our shutters are absolutely beautiful.  Plan to order for two more windows.  Thank you so much for all you help.

Jan H .

Having never ordered anything on line before, we were very skeptical of what we were buying and whom we were buying from. We were thrilled with the response from this company, and the friendliness of all the people we spoke with. The quality of the shutters was better than what we had expected, and fairly easy to install. The shutters look great!

Brian B.

Thank you for delivering quality in both service and product!

Peggy J.

Thank you so much for taking the time and making the extra effort to help us in getting the shutters for our production of "Mercy of a Storm".

Toni F. - City Theatre , Pittsburgh, PA

I received my shutters exactly as ordered, packed carefully to avoid any damage in transit. After a relatively simple installation, I am delighted with the appearance and quality of the shutters.


The shutters are top of the line and look beautiful. They arrived in perfect condition due to the excellent packing. It was good to have everything in tact, including all screws and even a can of stain. Brian was also top of the line in every aspect. We look forward to doing business with him in the future.

Ron M.

I just wanted to thank you for a great job on the shutters. We received them on time and in good shape. I was particularly impressed with the finish of the shutters. Just a fantastic job. So much, we ordered another pair of shutters. Keep up the good work.

William M.

I highly recommend Horizon Shutters to anyone considering purchasing shutters for two reasons: 1) competitive prices and 2) professional, quality service. I found Horizon Shutters prices to be considerably less than local sources. Also, the assistance and follow-up I received from the company was invaluable. I plan to recommend Horizon Shutters to all of my friends looking for plantation shutter reviews.

Tina W.

I am absolutely delighted with the product quality and timely service I received from Horizon Shutters. Although the shipping distance was significant, the packaging was custom fit and "bullet proof," allowing my order to arrive in A-1 condition. I seldom offer testimonials, but this positive experience deserves an exception.

Dwight E.

Just wanted to let you know we received our shutters a couple weeks before Christmas and they are BEAUTIFUL! The sizes are perfect and they look great. Thank you very much!

Sue & Greg F.

Excellent product, I will order again.

Chris B.

Thank you for such a great product! We just put our new shutters up last night. They look great. I love the quality finish that you use. And the system you designed for the frame makes them so easy to hang. Well worth our money!

Tammi C.

The product absolutely perfect, and the installation was not a problem. We are very pleased.

John S.

We got the shutters on Friday, and put them up this weekend. They are perfect!! The color is exactly right, the trim was a wonderful addition, and we are THRILLED!! I will highly recommend your shutters to everyone I know. It worked great!

Christy G.

My Horizon custom interior shutters arrived on a timely basis, were very carefully packaged so there was no damage in shipping, and are gorgeous -- beautifully made. The installation instructions look simple to follow, and they even included a can of touch-up paint --a nice touch (no pun intended!). I am very pleased.


I want to tell you that I was very pleased with the quality of your product. The materials and quality of finish was very high. The delivery was prompt and the packing was complete. I am completely satisfied and am looking forward to doing more business with you.

Michael G.

Just a note to let you know the shutters are beautiful and make an amazing difference in our family room. I have already recommended you to some friends and family.

Cynthia W.

Superior product and service.

Rosann C.

Horizon Shutters provides a high-quality product with the fit and finish expected of custom craftsmanship. The shutters installed with no problems and all seven windows were easily completed within one day. They provide quality at the savings one expects from a web merchant.

Bob Z.

I am very pleased with my new Horizon shutters. They look absolutely wonderful in my dining room window! Horizon's customer service was great. Everything I needed to set the shutters into my dining room window arrived in convenient packaging and in a timely manner. Thanks to my positive purchasing experience with Horizon Interior Shutters, I would not hesitate to buy once again from Horizon Interior Shutters.

Patricia P.

These shutters are beautiful - incredibly smooth and well constructed! The only problem is that they are so nice my wife wants them at every window in the house! This is my second order; I'm sure we'll have many more.

Steven B.

The shutters I received from Horizon are really beautiful. They are so professionally painted, and of good craftsmanship. Brian was very nice and helpful on the phone, which is what prompted me to order from them. I was very hesitant ordering over the Internet, but when there was a friendly voice on the end of the phone line I went for it. I will order from them again and will certainly recommend them.


This is the second order of shutters which I have received through Horizon Shutters. The product is of superior quality...they look great in both my formal dining room and my formal living room they enrich the look of the room beyond all expectations. The service was incredibly friendly, courteous and timely. I have never had such wonderful service from any supplier ... Internet or store location ... these shutters are also extremely well priced considering the quality of the product. You may use me as a reference should you require one, at any time ... and I look forward to doing more business with you as the occasion arises.

Christine P.

My Horizon custom interior shutters arrived on a timely basis, were carefully packaged so there was no damage in shipping, and are gorgeous -- beautifully made. The installation instructions look simple to follow, and they even include a can of touch-up paint -- a nice touch. I am very pleased.


I helped a dear friend of mine measure to order, and then install, a set of plantation style shutters to be used in a doorway in her home. The quality of the product is unsurpassed, and the fact that the installation was as easy as reading the directions was a pleasant surprise. The results would lead one to think that the shutters were built-in when the house was constructed. Amazing!

John B.

Brian was very helpful, courteous and responsive to my questions. I contacted him a number of times by phone and e-mail. Your web site is great--very professionally done, informative and easy to use. Your product options are extensive, which is very nice. My shutters arrived right when expected. I'm very impressed with the quality, and the ease of installation. I also appreciated the cost savings of going this route. I saved $300.00 by ordering direct rather than purchasing them through a retail establishment.

Susan R.

I am thrilled with my new shutters. The wood joints are smooth and the finish is excellent. I was uncertain about ordering shutters on the web, but would not hesitate to order again or to recommend to my friends. Thanks for a good product.

Sue E.

The shutters were lovely -- beautifully finished -- and I'm placing another order! Thanks for all your help with both orders. It is reassuring to be able to talk to a real person who makes sure everything was and is going to fit right.

Cody C.

What a pleasure to do business with a quality company who offers such a quality product! We received our shutters on Friday. They were unpacked and installed in less than an hour! We were so impressed with the workmanship of the shutters and the wonderful packing. My husband couldn't believe we received the can of paint for touch-up. Thank you for quality service! We'll recommend to all our friends.

Faith E.

Great product, very reasonable price, nice to get extras like a can of stain with the shutters to make touch-up easy. Packaging was impeccable!! Thanks!

Joe S.

I kicked myself for getting unfinished, but staining was fairly easy and they look great. We are thinking of doing some other windows.

Jerri S.

I receive my order today and I just wanted to say that they are just beautiful. They were well worth the wait. I can honestly say that they are extremely well made and top quality. Thanks for a fine job. I will be singing your praises here in New Jersey.

Kim W.

Just to let you know, I received my shutters and they look great. Now, it's putting my old ones to shame. Thank you again for all your help. I will be buying again.

Lori S.

I received my shutters today. They are absolutely beautiful work. They fit the window to the exact measurements I supplied, which is something I was very nervous about given the tight measurements I had for this particular window. I couldn't be happier.
