From our Amazing Customers


Our window shades were installed this morning. Can you believe it? Amazing service. I looked back & you came out on Feb. 17th & we ordered the following week. So less than two weeks. First of all, the installer was amazing. Just a great guy, was here less than an hour. Came in, put them up & was gone. And such a nice guy. These days, hard to find such good help. So just wanted to let you know how impressed we were with him. NOW, we will give the new shades a “GO” tonight & let you know how they work. But the one in the spare room which is down now, seems to really darken the room even during the day. So thanks again for such amazing service. You were great to work with & made it such an easy process. Oh, yes, we love the fabric we chose. Looks great.

Thanks again,
Tom & Mary Schroud

My wife and I recently purchased a new home. 🏡 Not knowing the area very well, we  decided to use a more local company for our shades. After much research, we settled on Made In The Shade. We were not disappointed in our choice. Scott and Gail were very knowledgeable and very helpful in choosing the right products and colors. The experience from start to finish was incredible. The quality of our shades are second to none. I would highly recommend this company if you are looking for a 5 star ⭐️ service.

We had a great experience and wanted to leave a review. I cannot tell you how happy I am we purchased the blinds through Larry Cooper and your company. Your service has been exemplary. Larry worked around our hectic schedule to take measurements of our house, helped guide us to the product that best suited our needs, and came back to troubleshoot an issue we had months after installation. After finding the issue, he had the shade brought to the factory and back on our window within 4 hours. 10/10 service and a wonderful product. – David Suehs

It has been a true pleasure working with Cindy on shades for our home. Our shade needs were a little tricky due our preferences and a large window width, and Cindy was wonderful at helping us to make a good choice taking both into account. She also provided amazing service when there was a small manufacturing issue with one of the shades – no hassle, no problems, just 100% commitment to making sure we were satisfied with the shades. I highly recommend Cindy!! – Anne Inman

We are very pleased with the wood blinds from Made in the Shade. Blake was most pleasant to deal with, the shades are of excellent quality and beautifully installed. I would definitely use Made in the shade for any future window covering needs. -Margaret Allen

Just want to take a minute to thank Made in the Shade company. I had a very pleasant experience from start to finish. It is always extremely refreshing to find a company that you can rely on and that is easy to work with. I will certainly be using them for any of my shade needs in the future and will also be recommending them to all of my family, friends and acquaintances. The owner, Scott and the sales lady, Gail should be proud of the quality of the product and the service they provide! Thank you again! – Pat Hults

Barb did all our window coverings in our 2016 Parade home. She did an awesome job measuring everything, for a perfect fit, and helped me pick out shades appropriate for the rooms they were used in, such as sun blocker shades in our SE bedroom. The installation was also done perfect, and several people commented how well they fit in the window spaces. I most highly would recommend her work, and friendly personality. – Carol Potter

I love Made in the Shade. We have worked with Barb 3 different times now as we moved into our new house over 3 years ago and couldn’t quite do all the blinds at once. You would think we replaced all of them at once – she did a great job of keeping track of prior orders, helping us save money in key areas and most of all ensuring a great finished look. We love light so have done a lot of top up/bottom down blinds. We get compliments all the time when people come over. They have a high quality product for very reasonable prices and stand by their work. I found them on Angie’s list and am so impressed! – Nikki Ryberg

Cindy from Made in the Shade did a fantastic job consulting us about the blinds. Since I’m a perfectionist, I was very nervous about how they would look when all said and done. So I bombarded Cindy with questions, requests for pictures, additional samples, etc. She was very, very understanding and helpful that I felt comfortable enough to place an order of wooden blinds for the entire house as opposed to the few windows in the main areas as we initially thought. And oh my, did they turn out just marvelous! The blinds complete our home with the gorgeous looks and very good quality. Also, Cindy and Brian did an EXCELLENT job installing them and so quickly! I couldn’t help but staring at the blinds that whole day and still! Thank you for a job so very well done!!! – Dilnoza Jade

A few weeks ago I finally decided to pursue window coverings on a couple doors and windows I had been putting off. I’d been seeing posts sharing her work from Cindy Schroedl for months after she started this adventure and thought..I know her I’m going to contact her. Best decision!!! Long story short, from start to finish she was so awesome to work with. When she said she’d be there..she was, when she said she would get back to me, she did…and when the day came that her and her husband, Brian, came to do our install, it was nothing short of perfection! If you are thinking of window coverings now or in the future, I would highly recommend contacting Cindy! – Julie Hein

Awesome Customer Service: We built our first house in the summer of 2014. We asked for a recommendation and were told to contact Barb at Made in the Shade. She was wonderful to work with from the beginning.

We closed on our house in the morning then as we pulled up to our home, the first time as homeowners, there was Barb waiting for us! She came in and we went over the options, she took measurements and off she went. As we were getting ready to officially move in a few weeks later and stay there for our first night, there was a knock at the door and Barb and her husband were there to install our shades! They did this so fast and they look amazing. It was a big milestone for us and has made for fond memories tied to our experience with Made in the Shade.

You come across a lot of companies and reps in life and being terrible with names, I rarely remember, but recently someone on our neighborhood website asked for a recommendation and I quickly replied with Barb’s name clarifying in all caps how AWESOME she was to work with and of course how wonderful Graber products were as well! – Kim Doolittle

I want to say a huge thank you to Cindy Schroedl for making our house even more beautiful. I cannot say enough about our new beautiful wood blinds, they make the rooms look so sharp! We just had our whole house done with new window coverings, and Cindy is amazing! Perfectionist and made our house more beautiful! Also, the new solar shades have save us $$$ and I don’t hear the air kick in as much. The sun room is so warm and cozy. Thank you again very much! – Erin Hanson

Our very first piece of the home makeover completed! Thank you to our wonderful friend, Cindy Schroedl, and her super handy hubby Brian for our new cellular shades and blinds! (Made in the Shade Blinds and More). We are very happy and thanks for making this process so easy and stress-less, especially with all the other renovations starting, moving and everything else going on. Great work!! – Michelle Palmer

Scott from Made in the Shade had the solutions we needed! A study, effective blackout accordion shade for more restful sleep in the morning, and an AMAZING and beautiful see-through roller shade for our big kitchen window overlooking our woods. We wanted to still see the deer and turkeys and critters, but keep the warmth in during winter and cut the sun’s glare in summer – and that’s exactly what Made in the Shade delivered. We couldn’t be happier and highly recommend Scott and this company! – Lisa Bull

I have nothing but wonderful things to report about Cindy Schroedl and her Made In The Shade team! From the consultation through the communication of order details all the way until the installation, Cindy exceeded my expectations. Having tried two previous window covering companies, both well known businesses, I didn’t honestly feel understood and taken care of until the day Cindy came to my home and gave me honest and helpful advice that resulted in absolutely perfect window treatments! -Cortney Sauter

We absolutely LOVE these solar shades! They allow enough light in that the kitchen isn’t dark, but keeps out the intense sun in the afternoon. Thank you, Cindy Schroedl, for all of your help and expertise! – Vickie Manke

Just had Blake from Made in the Shade install our roller shades. They are not only beautiful but Blake did a fantastic job. Their quote came in under the competition and their service went above and beyond. I highly recommend this company! – Tricia Dewar

We highly recommend Barb for all of your shade and blinds needs. She is prompt at responding to issues and goes above and beyond when trying to satisfy the customer. For example, we were having an issue with one of our shades (one that was purchased almost four years ago) in that it wouldn’t fully retract. We went through some troubleshooting steps per the manufacturer and were not able to solve the issue. We then contacted Barb for any other advice she may have in how to fix it. Without hesitation, she ordered us a new shade and had it delivered to our house at no cost to us. We were blown away by that level of service and feel it really shows the level of character that she demonstrates to her customers! – Chris Milewski
