Why Choose The Louver Shop of Cincinnati For All Your Window Fashions?
Hi, I am Charlie Orender! My wife, Jenni, and I have been serving the greater Columbus and greater Cincinnati areas of Ohio since 1996. We provide free in-home consultations for all of your window covering needs - whether shutters, blinds, or shades as well as professional installation of everything we offer. We listen to your needs...privacy, light control, or some combination - to give you exactly what you're looking for in stylish window treatments.
As a manufacturer's rep for The Louver Shop, we can handle any shutter needs you may have: wood or faux/poly shutters, plantation or the smaller traditional style shutters, painted or stained, with or without a tilt arm (the bar that moves the louvers). Our most popular shutter is currently our 3 1/2" Louverwood (poly) plantation shutter. Our plantation shutters come in 2 1/2, 3 1/2, and 4 1/2" louvers in either wood or faux/poly materials while our traditional 1 1/4" shutters are available in only wood. We also make all of our shutters to fit your window (custom) - arched, ellipse, angled, sunburst, circle, etc.
We proudly offer Hunter Douglas products: they have a vast assortment of shade products, including: Silhouettes, Luminettes, Duettes honeycomb shades, Pirouettes, Vignettes, Design Studio Roman Shades, Designer Roller or Screen Shades, Provenance Woven Wood Shades. There are many choices as far as sheer, light-filtering, and room darkening as well as many choices of fabrics and materials to suit your home's style. Hunter Douglas also has many options for those who prefer the look and versatility of a blind: Parklands wood and EverWood alternative wood blinds in 2" and 2 1/2" slats, an abundance of paint and stain choices, and options like upgraded valances or cloth tapes to further customize your blinds. Their blinds and shades can be further customized with options like EasyRise, LiteRise, UltraGlide, and PowerRise for even more ease of use!
The Louver Shop is also happy to offer Horizons Shades to our customers. Horizons has been in business more than 100 years and is located in Illinois. Horizons offers many innovative options for your shade needs such as: Natural Woven Shades and Shades of Elegance. You might like a Classic or Hobbled Roman Shade, the Averte Natural Fold, a Screen or Roller Shade, or the Twin Shade (2 shades in 1!). Again, the fabric and material choices, options to control light, and operating systems (like Cordless ONE Controls) and remote control options are vast so we can customize your treatments to your specific needs.
The Louver Shop now offers Exterior Shutters. We offer a wide variety of styles and materials, and can even customize according to your needs.

Had purchased Plantation shutters for previous home and I know that is what helped me sell it first day it was on the market! Purchased same shutters for new home. They came out and measured. Gave suggestions for design if asked for their opinion and even color matched my wall paint ! Installation was perfect and they look great! Will definitely put them in next house too!!

They came when they said and performed their services in a quiet professional manner. And they cleaned up after and they gave a tutorial on the proper handling the the louvers.

Have done several rooms through Louver Shop. Wish we didn't have to wait to save up to do them so we could get them all done. Louvers are always perfect; the older ones hold up great. The Orenders are easy to work with, kept us up-to-speed on everything, and do a great installation.

Meet the Cincinnati Window Coverings Design Team
Charlie Orender is the proud owner of The Louver Shop of Cincinnati, Ohio. According to Charlie, The Louver Shop sets itself apart from the competition because, “It offers superior service, a superior product, and superior expertise.”
Charlie was originally raised in Stone Mountain, GA but moved to Ohio with his family when he was a senior in high school. He remained in Ohio to attend the University of Akron, but afterwards moved back to the Atlanta area. He had kept in touch with many friends from the area during his time in Ohio and one of them, the owner of the very first Louver Shop, recruited Charlie to come to work for him. When an opportunity arose for Charlie to open The Louver Shop of Cincinnati, he was excited to take it. Charlie says, “My wife’s family is from Ohio and we were wanted to be close to them as well as to move forward in our careers.”
Charlie has basically spent his entire adult life working for The Louver Shop. He explains, “I began at the bottom and then I learned everything I possibly could from painting, to repairing, and on to selling. I’ve become proficient at every part of the job and I believe that my experience really benefits my customers. I am able to help them find exactly what fits their needs because I know the whole process so well.”
Charlie goes on to say that his favorite part of the job is that he is “doing something different every single day. That’s my number one thing. Every project is different and I really enjoy getting to meet new people.” Charlie further explains, “My goal for the families I work with is that they have the most pleasant window covering buying experience possible.”
Charlie points out that Plantation Shutters of both Louverwood and natural wood are definitely his most popular product. “It’s somewhere around 75-80% of my business,” he comments. “They are extremely energy efficient and that is very important in Cincinnati, especially in our winters. This is the same reason that I also have a lot of people choosing cellular shades. Cellular Shades look great, they have an easy operation, and they provide excellent insulation.”
Charlie loves living in the Cincinnati region because “it’s a wonderful place to raise a family. People really value the school system and education and they are also incredibly friendly. I feel like it’s a big small town,” he says with a smile. “We have many large businesses in the area and a major university that is known around the U.S. but the pace of life is less hectic than in other large cities.”
Charlie really likes cheering on the many sports teams in the region and he also enjoys taking advantage of all the metro parks around the city. He comments, “They’re just beautiful and really well maintained.”
Throughout his career with The Louver Shop, Charlie has earned recognition as a member of The President’s Club three times. He is also justifiable proud of his outstanding reviews on Angie’s List and his A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau. However, Charlie is not really motivated by awards and recognition – “What I really value is having completely satisfied customers and then having them refer me to someone else. In fact, at least 50% of my business comes from repeat business and referrals. That is my true reward!”
