What's the Difference? Ready-Made vs. Custom Window Treatments

When you’re freshening up your home, it might seem simpler to buy off-the-shelf window treatments in Columbus. They’re budget-friendly, and you can pick up and hang them today.

However, it’s also smart to think about quality and ease of installation, among other considerations. To make the best decision for your house, there are a few other things you should remember when purchasing new window treatments.

Consulting a window treatment specialist like Louver Shop of Columbus who refreshes houses all the time has some notable perks. Here are a selection of those benefits.

Experienced Design Assistance

You’re accountable for a time-consuming list of jobs when you’re buying window treatments by yourself.

This includes:

  • Selecting the right brand and style
  • Figuring out the color, design and feel
  • Measuring your window frames
  • Finding the right hardware
  • Precisely installing the product

When you get help from a Louver Shop of Columbus specialist, we’ll go over your choices during a free consultation. We’ll help you discover the best fitting style, color and smart operating system before offering a no-pressure Louver Shop Complete Comfort Pricing™ quote. With expert measurements and standard installation included, we’ll handle it from there.

Custom Fit for Tricky Windows

Ready-made window treatments only fit a designated range of sizes. If your window is not in that range, you won’t have a very satisfying fit. And an inadequate fit can leave you with reduced energy efficiency and light peaking through gaps.

If you have less common window, like an arch, choosing the correct treatment can be difficult. But not when you turn to Louver Shop of Columbus. That’s because we’ve never met a window we couldn’t work with.

Our plantation shutters are custom-made to cover a variety of different shapes, including arches, sunbursts, French doors, cutouts and more. Making a perfect fit results in energy efficiency, light-filtering power and overall comfort.


Noticeable Quality

When you find a premade window treatment, you never know what kind of quality you’re going to end up with. This is particularly prevalent if the window treatment was built in another country.

While a premade style might initially be easier on your wallet, it will likely need repairs much quicker due to discoloration over time, paint peeling, bowing or other issues. And that’s no value in the long run.

Nobody gets shutters, blinds and shades like Louver Shop of Columbus. We're noted in our industry for an unmatched mix of quality, style and attentive service—all at competitive prices.

All our custom window treatments are created in the USA. Not only does a USA-made product give you superior quality, it will also be finished (and installed) much quicker in your Columbus home.

Plus, we support our shutters, blinds and shades with one of the best lifetime limited warranties in the industry. When you choose Louver Shop of Columbus, you’ll get window treatments that will be beautiful for a long time to come. That’s our guarantee to you.
