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

When you’re freshening up your space, it might appear better to purchase premade window treatments in Charleston. They’re cost-effective, and you can buy and put them in place in the same day.

However, it’s also important to examine quality and complexity of installation, among other factors. To make the best decision for your house, there are other things you should think about when selecting new window treatments.

Finding a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of Charleston who helps houses regularly has some unmistakable perks. Here are a selection of those benefits.

Professional Design Advice

You’re taking on a long list of jobs when you’re buying window treatments by yourself.

This includes:

  • Choosing the proper brand and type of treatment
  • Selecting the color, design and fabric
  • Measuring your space
  • Singling out the proper hardware
  • Properly installing the product

When you turn to a Louver Shop of Charleston consultant, we’ll go over your choices during a complimentary consultation. We’ll help you figure out the best style, color and smart operating system before creating a no-pressure Louver Shop Complete Comfort Pricing™ quote. With skilled measurements and standard installation included, we’ll finish the work from there.

Tailored Fit for Tricky Windows

Mass-produced window treatments only fit a set assortment of sizes. If your window is outside of those, you won’t have a very good fit. And an incorrect fit can result in decreased energy efficiency and light slipping through gaps.

If you have a specialty window, like an arch, finding the correct option can be tricky. But not when you call on Louver Shop of Charleston. That’s because we’ve never run into a window we couldn’t fit.

Our plantation shutters are built to be installed in an assortment of specialty shapes, including arches, sunbursts, French doors, cutouts and more. Crafting a perfect fit gives you energy efficiency, light-filtering abilities and total comfort.


Noticeable Quality

When you purchase a ready-made window treatment, you never know what kind of quality you’re going to receive. This is especially prevalent if the window treatment was made outside the United States.

While a prefabricated style might at first glance seem easier on your wallet, it will often need to be replaced much more frequently due to discoloration over time, paint chips, bending or other problems. And that’s no savings in the long run.

Nobody knows shutters, blinds and shades like Louver Shop of Charleston. We're unique in our business for an unbeatable mix of quality, style and incredible service—all at competitive prices.

All our custom window treatments are created in the USA. Not only does a USA-made product offer superior quality, it will also be completed (and installed) much more promptly in your Charleston home.

Plus, we support our shutters, blinds and shades with one of the leading lifetime limited warranties around. When you go with Louver Shop of Charleston, you’ll get window treatments that will be elegant for a long time to come. We guarantee you that.
