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

When you’re making over your space, it might appear better to purchase ready-made window treatments in Charleston. They’re cost-effective, and you can buy and hang them in the same day.

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

Finding a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of Charleston who helps homes frequently has some unmistakable advantages. Here are a selection of those benefits.

Experienced Design Advice

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

This includes:

  • Choosing the proper brand and look
  • Selecting the color, pattern and material
  • Measuring your windows
  • Singling out the proper hardware
  • Properly installing the product

When you turn to a Louver Shop of Charleston professional, we’ll go over your choices during a complimentary consultation. We’ll help you figure out the best fitting 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

Premade 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 a poor fit can result in reduced energy efficiency and light coming through gaps.

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

Our plantation shutters are tailor-made to work with an assortment of unique shapes, including arches, sunbursts, French doors, cutouts and more. Crafting a flawless fit gives you energy efficiency, light-filtering capabilities and total comfort.


No Question of Quality

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

While a prefabricated style might at first glance come off as more budget friendly, it will often need to be replaced much more frequently due to discoloration over time, paint chips, bending or other issues. 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 a winning mix of quality, style and incredible service—all at competitive prices.

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

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