Why Choose The Louver Shop of Columbus OH 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.

Charlie Orender, his wife Jennie, and Allen (installer) were professional, courteous and wonderful. The work was done with great attention to detail. Cleaned up and took away any trash. The manufacturing facility sent a wrong shutter. Charlie has kept me informed and it should be fixed soon.

Meet the Columbus OH Window Coverings Design Team
Charlie Orender is the owner of The Louver Shop of Columbus, Ohio. According to Charlie, The Louver Shop is unique because, “It offers a superior product, superior service, and expertise.”
Charlie actually grew up in Stone Mountain, GA but he moved to Ohio when he was a senior in high school. He stayed in Ohio to attend the University of Akron, but then moved back to the Atlanta area. He had stayed in touch with many friends from the area even though he had moved away to Ohio and one of them, the owner of the original Louver Shop, invited Charlie to come to work for him. When the opportunity came about for Charlie to open The Louver Shop of Columbus, he was eager to take it. Says Charlie, “My wife’s family is from Ohio and we were excited to be close to them as well as to advance in our careers.”
Charlie has basically worked almost his entire adult life for The Louver Shop. He says, “I started at the bottom and I learned everything I could from painting, to repairing, and on to selling. I’ve been able to become proficient at every aspect of the job and I feel like this really benefits my customers because I can really help them find exactly what fits their needs.”
Charlie explains that his favorite part of the job is that he is “doing something different every day. That’s my number one thing. Every project is different and I love getting to meet new people.” Charlie goes on to say, “My goal is that my clients have the most pleasant window covering buying experience possible.”
Charlie points out that Plantation Shutters of both natural wood and Louverwood are his most popular product. “It’s about 75-80% of my business,” he comments. “They are really energy efficient and that is very important in Columbus, especially in winter. For this reason, I’m also seeing a lot of people choosing cellular shades. They look great, they have great operation, and they provide great insulation.”
Charlie loves living in the Columbus area because “it’s a great place to raise a family. There is a real emphasis on the school system and education and the people are so friendly. It’s a big small town,” he says with a smile. “We have lots of large businesses in the area and a major university but the pace of life is not as hectic as other large cities.”
Charlie enjoys cheering on the many sports teams in the area and he is also a big fan of all the metro parks around the region. He asserts, “They’re beautiful and really well maintained.”
During his many years with The Louver Shop, Charlie has been recognized as a member of The President’s Club three times. He also has great reviews on Angie’s List and an A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau. However, Charlie has this to say about awards and recognition – “What really matters to me is having completely satisfied customers and gaining referrals. In fact, 50% of my business comes from referrals or repeat business. That for me is the real reward!”
