Almost everyone has heard the phrase “you get what you pay for” at some point. Whether you are buying a piece of furniture or even just food at the grocery store, the more expensive things tend to be the better-quality product. Now, this may not always be the case. You could find a total steal on something, but, in general, it does tend to be true. Window treatments are no exception. Custom window treatments are higher quality than store-bought. Read on to learn more about why our custom shutters are better for your home than traditional store-bought shutters.

Custom Shutters Are Better Than Store-Bought in Norwalk, Connecticut (CT) Homes.

Custom shutters, first, are great because they are made specifically for your windows, no one else’s. Our team will come to your home and measure your windows to ensure that your shutters will be cut exactly to those measurements in the production phase. You won’t have to worry that your shutters won’t fit when you go to install them. This can sometimes be a problem with store-bought shutters because they are only available in standard sizes. If you have a window that isn’t the typical standard size, you are out of luck.

Next, when it comes to quality, custom shutters are way better than store-bought. Store-bought window treatments are mass-constructed in a factory by machines. This means that there isn’t any individual care going into making sure they are made just right. Instead, custom shutters are handcrafted in a studio by an individual craftsman who has made it his job to make sure every detail is perfectly constructed. They don’t take shortcuts or cut corners to make production cheaper or anything like that.

Custom window treatments are window treatments that will last. Ready-made shutters often seem like they may be the way to go since they are significantly cheaper than custom shutters. However, when you look at the long-term big picture, you will see that because ready-made store-bought shutters won’t last as long as custom, you will end up paying at least as much on store-bought, having to replace them, as you would spend on custom initially, if not even more. You want window treatments that will last, not something that will fall apart within a year and need to be replaced.
