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

When you’re fixing up your space, it might seem easier to buy off-the-shelf window treatments in Baltimore. They’re budget-friendly, and you can pick up and put them in place within hours.

However, it’s also smart to consider quality and ease of installation, among other components. To make the smartest decision for your space, there are other things you should keep in mind when selecting new window treatments.

Consulting a window treatment specialist like Louver Shop of Maryland who transforms rooms regularly has some unmistakable advantages. Here are a few of those benefits.

Expert Design Support

You’re responsible for a long list of tasks when you’re searching window treatments by yourself.

Beginning with:

  • Choosing the correct brand and style
  • Choosing the color, pattern and material
  • Measuring your space
  • Getting the suitable hardware
  • Accurately installing the product

When you collaborate with a Louver Shop of Maryland expert, we’ll analyze your options during a free consultation. We’ll help you find the best 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 manage the process from there.

Custom Fit for Tricky Windows

Premade window treatments only fit a designated assortment of sizes. If your window is outside of those, you won’t have a very satisfying fit. And an incorrect fit can leave you with diminished energy efficiency and light spilling through gaps.

If you have a unique window, like an arch, locating the best option can be hard. But not when you go through Louver Shop of Maryland. That’s because we’ve never had a window we couldn’t work with.

Our plantation shutters are built to go on a variety of specialty shapes, including arches, sunbursts, French doors, cutouts and more. Crafting a precise fit creates energy efficiency, light-filtering capabilities and complete comfort.


No Question of Quality

When you go with a premade window treatment, you can’t be sure what kind of quality you’re going to find. This is especially notable if the window treatment was made outside the United States.

While a store-bought style might at first glance come off as more economical, it will probably need to be replaced much more often due to changing color over time, paint scratches, bowing or other complications. And that’s no value in the long run.

Nobody understands shutters, blinds and shades like Louver Shop of Maryland. We're uncommon in our trade for an unbeatable partnership of quality, style and incredible service—all at competitive prices.

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

Plus, we support our window coverings with one of the best lifetime limited warranties around. When you go with Louver Shop of Maryland, you’ll find window treatments that will be gorgeous for a long time down the road. We guarantee it.
