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

When you’re redecorating your space, it might appear easier to select ready-made window treatments in Birmingham. They’re economical, and you can pick out and set them up within hours.

However, it’s also useful to weigh quality and simplicity of installation, among other considerations. To make the smartest decision for your space, there are a couple other things you should remember when finding new window treatments.

Turning to a window treatment expert like Louver Shop of Birmingham who refreshes houses regularly has some unique perks. Here are a few of those benefits.

Qualified Design Advice

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

This includes:

  • Picking the correct brand and style
  • Deciding on the color, design and feel
  • Measuring your windows
  • Pinpointing the proper hardware
  • Correctly installing your purchase

When you collaborate with a Louver Shop of Birmingham pro, we’ll evaluate your project during a free of charge consultation. We’ll help you select the correct style, color and smart operating system before providing you with a no-pressure Louver Shop Complete Comfort Pricing™ quote. With trained measurements and standard installation included, we’ll manage the process from there.

Tailored Fit for Tricky Windows

Ready-made window treatments only work with a set assortment of sizes. If your window is not in that range, you won’t have a very satisfying fit. And a poor fit can result in lowered energy efficiency and light peaking through gaps.

If you have special window, like an arch, choosing the right treatment can be tricky. But not when you go through Louver Shop of Birmingham. That’s because we’ve never had a window we couldn’t fit.

Our plantation shutters are custom-made to be installed in an array of unique shapes, including arches, sunbursts, French doors, cutouts and more. Getting an exact fit gives you energy efficiency, light-filtering power and total comfort.

 

Noticeable Quality

When you purchase a mass-produced window treatment, you never know what kind of quality you’re going to receive. This is often prevalent if the window treatment was built overseas.

While a mass-produced style might up front come off as more economical, it will often need replacing much sooner due to changing color over time, paint chips, warping or other issues. And that’s no value in the long run.

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

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

Plus, we support our window treatments with one of the strongest lifetime limited warranties around. When you go with Louver Shop of Birmingham, you’ll receive window treatments that will be elegant for for years to come. We guarantee it.
