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

When you’re freshening up your space, it might be tempting to buy ready-made window treatments in Raleigh. They’re cost-effective, and you can pick up and hang them today.

However, it’s also useful to think about quality and simplicity of installation, among other elements. To make the smartest choice for your space, there are a couple other things you should keep in mind when selecting new window treatments.

Turning to a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of Raleigh who refreshes homes all the time has some unique perks. Here are some of those benefits.

Trained Design Support

You’re looking at a long list of jobs when you’re purchasing window treatments by yourself.

This includes:

  • Choosing the correct brand and model
  • Figuring out the color, design and fabric
  • Measuring your windows
  • Pinpointing the appropriate hardware
  • Correctly installing your purchase

When you get help from a Louver Shop of Raleigh specialist, we’ll analyze your project during a no-cost consultation. We’ll help you find the best fitting style, color and smart operating system before creating a no-pressure Louver Shop Complete Comfort Pricing™ quote. With professional measurements and standard installation included, we’ll handle it from there.

Custom Fit for Tricky Windows

Premade window treatments only work with a set selection of sizes. If your window is wider or taller, you won’t have a very good fit. And a poor fit can lead to reduced energy efficiency and light leaking through gaps.

If you have a specialty window, like an arch, selecting the correct option can be difficult. But not when you go through Louver Shop of Raleigh. That’s because we’ve never found a window we couldn’t cover.

Our plantation shutters are custom-built to go on an assortment of unique shapes, including arches, sunbursts, French doors, cutouts and more. Making a perfect fit gives you energy efficiency, light-filtering power and complete comfort.

 

No Question of Quality

When you find a premade window treatment, you can’t be certain what kind of quality you’re going to find. This is often prevalent if the product was created outside the United States.

While a mass-produced style might up front appear more economical, it will often need to be replaced much sooner due to changing color from time, paint peeling, bowing or other problems. And that’s no value in the long run.

Nobody gets shutters, blinds and shades like Louver Shop of Raleigh. We're uncommon in our trade for an unbeatable combo of quality, style and attentive service—all at competitive prices.

All our custom window treatments are made in the USA. Not only does a USA-made product give you exceptional quality, it will also be settled (and installed) much faster.

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