Bart Stagg, owner of The Louver Shop of Lake Charles/Lafayette started with the dream of self-employment in the home improvement industry. When presented the opportunity to open a Louver Shop location in his wife’s home town, he jumped. Bart’s wife, Kristin Nutt, is from Lake Charles and the couple was looking to move back so their children could be around family. The Louver Shop provided the way.


"The joy of meeting customers drives me. I like to say that this business is about going into peoples’ homes and making friends. In the end, we all want to make our friends happy, so we apply that philosophy to our end result. If the customer is not happy, I’m not happy. We want to be the best shutter company around and we’re ready to earn that distinction.”


Since opening, The Louver Shop of Lake Charles has been providing interior interior and exterior window treatments throughout SWLA and Acadiana. We tackle practically any specialty shapes like arches, circles, ovals etc. that other companies prefer to stay away from. Other popular lines are Hunter Douglas, Horizons, Timber, and Graber. “Although our specialty is plantation shutters, we provide our customers with a broad range of window covering solutions to cater to any taste and budget. Whether you’re preference is for Roman shades, wood or faux wood blinds, roller, cellular, or pleated shades, we can customize a solution.”


The Louver Shop of Lake Charles/Lafayette distinguishes itself through quality of product and quality of workmanship. All of our shutters are manufactured in the USA. We choose vendors that also made their name on quality products. When you buy from The Louver Shop, you are guaranteed top of the line service and product.
