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

When you’re redecorating your home, it might appear better to purchase premade window treatments in Columbia. They’re economical, and you can pick up and put them in place today.

However, it’s also smart to think about quality and simplicity of installation, among other elements. To make the smartest decision for your house, there are a few other things you should think about when selecting new window treatments.

Consulting a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of Columbia who helps rooms regularly has some definite perks. Here are some examples of those benefits.

Expert Design Support

You’re accountable for a long list of tasks when you’re purchasing window treatments by yourself.

Starting with:

  • Locating the right brand and model
  • Selecting the color, print and material
  • Measuring your windows
  • Singling out the right hardware
  • Properly installing your purchase

When you collaborate with a Louver Shop of Columbia professional, we’ll evaluate your project during a complimentary consultation. We’ll help you select 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 take it from there.

Fantastic Fit for Tricky Windows

Store-bought window treatments only are ideal for a set selection of sizes. If your window is outside of that, you won’t find a very good fit. And an incorrect fit can leave you with lowered energy efficiency and light leaking through gaps.

If you have a specialty window, like an arch, choosing the correct solution can be almost impossible. But not when you work with Louver Shop of Columbia. That’s because we’ve never met a window we couldn’t work with.

Our plantation shutters are tailor-made to work with a selection of different shapes, including arches, sunbursts, French doors, cutouts and more. Finding a custom fit gives you energy efficiency, light-filtering power and total comfort.

 

Noticeable Quality

When you go with a premade window treatment, you can’t be certain what kind of quality you’re going to get. This is particularly notable if the window treatment was fashioned in another country.

While a premade style might at first glance be more budget friendly, it will possibly need repairs much faster due to discoloration over time, paint cracks, warping or other problems. And that’s not useful in the long run.

Nobody understands shutters, blinds and shades like Louver Shop of Columbia. We're unique in our industry for an unmatched combo of quality, style and outstanding service—all at competitive prices.

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

Plus, we support our window treatments with one of the best lifetime limited warranties in the industry. When you work with Louver Shop of Columbia, you’ll find window treatments that will be good looking for years. We guarantee you that.
