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

When you’re redoing your house, it might seem simpler to purchase off-the-shelf window treatments in Kansas City. They’re cost-effective, and you can buy and put them in place in the same day.

However, it’s also critical to evaluate quality and ease of installation, among other components. To make the right choice for your home, there are some other things you should look at when finding new window treatments.

Finding a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of Kansas City who styles windows every day has some notable perks. Here are some examples of those benefits.

Expert Design Assistance

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

Starting with:

  • Figuring out the correct brand and type of treatment
  • Deciding on the color, pattern and feel
  • Measuring your space
  • Choosing the appropriate hardware
  • Accurately installing the window treatments

When you work with a Louver Shop of Kansas City expert, we’ll go over your options during a free 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 skilled measurements and standard installation included, we’ll manage the process from there.

Great Fit for Tricky Windows

Store-bought window treatments only fit a set assortment of sizes. If your window is not in that range, you won’t have a very strong fit. And an unsatisfactory fit can result in lowered energy efficiency and light leaking through gaps.

If you have special window, like an arch, finding the right treatment can be tricky. But not when you turn to Louver Shop of Kansas City. That’s because we’ve never encountered a window we couldn’t fit.

Our plantation shutters are tailor-made to cover a variety of specialty shapes, including arches, sunbursts, French doors, cutouts and more. Getting a tailored fit creates energy efficiency, light-filtering power and complete comfort.


Clear-Cut Quality

When you find a ready-made window treatment, you can’t be sure what kind of quality you’re going to get. This is especially notable if the product was crafted overseas.

While a store-bought style might at first glance seem cheaper, it will possibly need to be replaced much more often due to discoloration over time, paint cracks, bowing or other complications. And that’s no value in the long run.

Nobody gets shutters, blinds and shades like Louver Shop of Kansas City. We're known in our business for a winning 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 provide higher quality, it will also be finished (and installed) much more quickly in your Kansas City home.

Plus, we support our products with one of the best lifetime limited warranties in the industry. When you work with Louver Shop of Kansas City, you’ll find window treatments that will be good looking for a long time to come. That’s our guarantee to you.
