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

When you’re redecorating your home, it might be tempting to buy off-the-shelf window treatments in Cincinnati. They’re budget-friendly, and you can buy and put them in place today.

However, it’s also smart to evaluate quality and complexity of installation, among other factors. To make the best pick for your home, there are a couple other things you should think about when shopping for new window treatments.

Turning to a window treatment pro like Louver Shop of Cincinnati who styles windows every day has some unmistakable upsides. Here are a couple of those benefits.

Expert Design Advice

You’re taking on a lengthy list of chores when you’re searching window treatments on your own.

Starting with:

  • Picking the proper brand and look
  • Picking the color, print and material
  • Measuring your window frames
  • Getting the correct hardware
  • Accurately installing your purchase

When you collaborate with a Louver Shop of Cincinnati pro, we’ll analyze your options during a no-cost consultation. We’ll help you figure out the best 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 take over from there.

Fantastic Fit for Tricky Windows

Store-bought window treatments only fit a small range of sizes. If your window is outside of those, you won’t find a very strong fit. And an inadequate fit can leave you with lowered energy efficiency and light spilling through gaps.

If you have a specialty window, like an arch, identifying the right treatment can be tricky. But not when you go through Louver Shop of Cincinnati. That’s because we’ve never encountered a window we couldn’t work with.

Our plantation shutters are built to go on a variety of different shapes, including arches, sunbursts, French doors, cutouts and more. Getting a tailored fit ensures energy efficiency, light-filtering abilities and total comfort.


Clear-Cut Quality

When you choose a mass-produced window treatment, you can’t be sure what kind of quality you’re going to get. This is especially notable if the window treatment was fashioned in another country.

While a mass-produced style might up front come off as easier on your wallet, it will likely need to be replaced much more often due to discoloration over time, paint nicks, bowing or other problems. And that’s no value in the long run.

Nobody understands shutters, blinds and shades like Louver Shop of Cincinnati. We're uncommon in our trade for an unmatched mix of quality, style and attentive service—all at competitive prices.

All our custom window treatments are manufactured in the USA. Not only does a USA-made product give you higher quality, it will also be finished (and installed) much more quickly in your Cincinnati home.

Plus, we support our window treatments with one of the best lifetime limited warranties available. When you work with Louver Shop of Cincinnati, you’ll find window treatments that will be gorgeous for a long time down the road. That’s our guarantee to you.
