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

When you’re redecorating your house, it might be tempting to select ready-made window treatments in Knoxville. They’re budget-friendly, and you can pick out and install them in the same day.

However, it’s also useful to think about quality and complexity of installation, among other factors. To make the best decision for your house, there are a couple other things you should keep in mind when selecting new window treatments.

Turning to a window treatment pro like Louver Shop of Knoxville who transforms spaces regularly has some real advantages. Here are a few of those benefits.

Experienced Design Assistance

You’re signing up for a long list of tasks when you’re buying window treatments on your own.

Beginning with:

  • Choosing the right brand and look
  • Picking the color, print and material
  • Measuring your space
  • Finding the proper hardware
  • Correctly installing your window treatments

When you turn to a Louver Shop of Knoxville expert, we’ll go over your project during a complimentary 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 expert measurements and standard installation included, we’ll handle it from there.

Custom Fit for Tricky Windows

Mass-produced window treatments only work with a set selection of sizes. If your window is a little different than those, you won’t get a very useful fit. And a poor fit can result in lowered energy efficiency and light slipping through gaps.

If you have special window, like an arch, finding the best option can be almost impossible. But not when you work with Louver Shop of Knoxville. That’s because we’ve never run into a window we couldn’t work with.

Our plantation shutters are custom-built to go on a variety of unique shapes, including arches, sunbursts, French doors, cutouts and more. Making an exact fit creates energy efficiency, light-filtering capabilities and total comfort.


Clear-Cut Quality

When you go with a ready-made window treatment, you never know what kind of quality you’re going to end up with. This is especially notable if the window treatment was constructed overseas.

While a premade style might initially be easier on your wallet, it will probably need to be replaced much faster due to discoloration over time, paint peeling, warping or other problems. And that’s no value in the long run.

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

All our custom window treatments are created in the USA. Not only does a USA-made product provide higher quality, it will also be finished (and installed) much more quickly.

Plus, we support our window treatments with one of the best lifetime limited warranties around. When you choose Louver Shop of Knoxville, you’ll receive window treatments that will be elegant for a long time to come. That’s our guarantee to you.
