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

When you’re freshening up your home, it might seem simpler to choose off-the-shelf window treatments in Huntsville. They’re economical, and you can purchase and hang them within hours.

However, it’s also smart to examine quality and simplicity of installation, among other factors. To make the smartest decision for your home, there are other things you should consider when shopping for new window treatments.

Turning to a window treatment pro like Louver Shop of North Alabama who helps homes every day has some notable advantages. Here are some of those benefits.

Qualified Design Advice

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

Starting with:

  • Picking the proper brand and style
  • Picking the color, print and fabric
  • Measuring your windows
  • Choosing the suitable hardware
  • Correctly installing your window treatments

When you collaborate with a Louver Shop of North Alabama specialist, we’ll review your options during a free of charge consultation. We’ll help you figure out the best 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 handle all the work from there.

Great Fit for Tricky Windows

Ready-made window treatments only work with a small selection of sizes. If your window is wider or taller, you won’t have a very useful fit. And an unsatisfactory fit can lead to diminished energy efficiency and light spilling through gaps.

If you have less common window, like an arch, selecting the best treatment can be almost impossible. But not when you go through Louver Shop of North Alabama. That’s because we’ve never had a window we couldn’t cover.

Our plantation shutters are tailor-made to be installed in a selection of different shapes, including arches, sunbursts, French doors, cutouts and more. Making an exact fit ensures energy efficiency, light-filtering capabilities and total comfort.


Clear-Cut Quality

When you buy a mass-produced window treatment, you can’t be sure what kind of quality you’re going to end up with. This is particularly true if the window treatment was crafted outside the United States.

While a premade style might at first glance come off as more budget friendly, it will probably need to be replaced much more frequently due to fading from time, paint scratches, warping or other issues. And that’s not useful in the long run.

Nobody knows shutters, blinds and shades like Louver Shop of North Alabama. We're unique in our industry for a winning combination of quality, style and devoted 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 settled (and installed) much more quickly.

Plus, we support our products with one of the best lifetime limited warranties in the industry. When you work with Louver Shop of North Alabama, you’ll get window treatments that will be beautiful for for years to come. We guarantee you that.
