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

When you’re making over your house, it might be tempting to choose premade window treatments in Detroit. They’re cost-effective, and you can buy and install them in the same day.

However, it’s also important to consider quality and simplicity of installation, among other components. To make the best choice for your home, there are some other things you should consider when finding new window treatments.

Consulting a window treatment expert like Louver Shop of Metro Detroit who transforms spaces regularly has some unique upsides. Here are a few of those benefits.

Qualified Design Advice

You’re taking on a challenging list of chores when you’re purchasing window treatments by yourself.

This includes:

  • Locating the right brand and type of treatment
  • Selecting the color, design and fabric
  • Measuring your window frames
  • Identifying the appropriate hardware
  • Precisely installing the window treatments

When you get help from a Louver Shop of Metro Detroit consultant, we’ll evaluate your project during a free consultation. We’ll help you figure out the right style, color and smart operating system before offering a no-pressure Louver Shop Complete Comfort Pricing™ quote. With professional measurements and standard installation included, we’ll handle all the work from there.

Custom Fit for Tricky Windows

Premade window treatments only work with a specific selection of sizes. If your window is a little different than those, you won’t have a very satisfying fit. And an inadequate fit can lead to reduced energy efficiency and light spilling through gaps.

If you have a specialty window, like an arch, finding the right treatment can be tricky. But not when you work with Louver Shop of Metro Detroit. That’s because we’ve never run into a window we couldn’t cover.

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


No Question of Quality

When you select a ready-made window treatment, you never know what kind of quality you’re going to get. This is especially prevalent if the product was built overseas.

While a store-bought style might initially be cheaper, it will almost definitely need replacing much quicker due to changing color over time, paint nicks, bowing or other complications. And that’s no value in the long run.
