John and Heather are very easy to work with and are so knowledgeable! Our blinds were installed the day we closed on our house and we love them! They put up temporary blinds in the windows we ordered shutters for until they came in. The shutters were absolutely worth the wait!! We are so happy with the sevice and the product.

Upsizing, then downsizing over a relatively few years made us experts in shades and shutters and we were becoming increasingly unhappy with the long-established shops who were not only getting outrageously expensive but giving poor service and offering shoddy products. Our new house needed 22 shades and blinds, so we gave Made In The Shade a try and we could not be happier. First, they met every deadline and did everything they promised, exactly as they promised (a first time experience for us with home contractors!!!). Because of the high costs of the long-established shops, we were tempted to do it yourselves (DYI) using the internet, but MIS didn't cost more than DYI/Internet and the workmanship was extraordinary... and it was way less expensive than the other established local shops. The other exceptional benefit of using MIS was all the time and expertise they provided us in helping us select the brand, model, and fabric/color of the window covering. The end result was truly wonderful and it my our new home so much more enjoyable.

We contacted Made in the Shade via their website, made an appointment and had the ease of choosing our preferred time and had a confirmation within an hour or so. John texted, emailed and called before he came, making sure we were ready and prepared for his arrival. He is an excellent gentleman, thinking to take his shoes off before coming in, and came prepared with images of ideas, samples, as well as quick estimates and ready to measure. He was kind enough to offer several suggestions as to how to go about making our windows the best presented as well as the most economical choices. He graciously gave tips on how we might accomplish some of the ideas on our own with little difficulty and educated us on all the different options. We cannot say enough about how we appreciated his experience, and while we are still undecided about which route we particularly want to take, there is no doubt that if we were to choose to have fixtures installed, John would certainly be the man to call. Excellent job!

We used Made in the Shade for blinds for our new home and were very pleased with the quality and price. So pleased that we asked them to come back and install shades on our new EzeBreeze porch windows. Always professional, prompt, on time!!!! Excellent quality and customer service, a pleasure to work with!!!! 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

Great help in choosing blind setups, and colors. The best part....installation was perfect for every shade, nothing crooked and all mounting screws were tightly connected. We really liked that they helped to keep our costs down with suggestions for rooms that don't get much use. The roller semi translucent shades are incredible, everyone comments on them. The recommended suggestion for thermal blackout cell type shades for the bedroom made a HUGE difference! Unlike other "blackout" shades these actually work, and the temp difference is noticeable. The owner even stopped by for a follow up and took all leftovers off the premises. Great customer service and no BS sales tactics. VETS discount!!

I reached out to Made In The Shade Blinds through Yelp Request a Quote! Heather quickly got back to me and after a bit of back and forth we got John on the calendar to come on out to our home. I super appreciated that they were willing to make a Saturday appointment since during the week it's hard to carve out the time. John was friendly and professional, he had great suggestions for what type of shade to use on the door we were looking to get covered. Their prices were super competitive and in the end we ended up choosing them since we thought they offered the best price/options. The blinds quickly came in and John was able to come out on a Saturday again to install them. I'd definitely reach out to John and Heather again if we ever needed more blinds in the future!

My wife and I moved into a new home in December, and so we needed blinds for every window in the house. Kind of an overwhelming task! Heather and John at Made In The Shade patiently worked with us through the process of deciding what to buy. We went back and forth on quite a few options, and they were helpful in giving us the pros and cons of every choice. When John was at our house showing us samples of one set of blinds, he called Heather and she zipped right over with another set we wanted to look at. Because of our dithering, we didn't get our order in until very near our move date, and as a result our delivery wasn't until a couple of days after we moved in, but no worries, John gave us temporary blinds for our bedroom so we could have some privacy. When it came time to the install, John did a great job, paying attention to every detail. There were a couple of snags in what the manufacturer sent, and he took care of getting those things worked out. We now have beautiful, perfectly fitted blinds in ever room of our house and couldn't be happier. Made In the Shade is highly recommended!

First of all let me start by saying that I called made in the shade and got an answer on the 2nd ring! Rare in this day and time. John answered all my question and came out to look at my porch within a couple of days. He spent time talking with me about my options and the quality of the shades. I ordered the shades and within a couple of weeks they were installed. They are absolutely gorgeous! This is a class act company. John has followed up with me after the installation to make sure I was completely satisfied. Actually, he and his wife followed up to see If I was happy with my shades. This company is all about customer service. Something you don’t get very much anymore. I would recommend to anyone and I would give them 10 stars if I could. For the first time since I moved in my home I can sit on my back porch without being blinded by the sun. Thank you Made in the shade! You are one of the good ones!

My wife and I recently purchased a new home in Cary and were seeking new window treatments. We had several companies come out and show us options and answer questions without success. John from Made in the shade blinds came out and instantly we knew we had our company. Very honest and clear about our options keeping our budget and aesthetics in mind. Did not hesitate to come back out 2/3 times to compare colors and make sure we were comfortable w the choices. I really appreciated great communication throughout the process and keeping us at the forefront of the decision making process. We now have beautiful plantation shutters and a power shade in the master bathroom. I cannot say enough good things about John and Heather and we could not be happier w the final product. Thanks Made in the Shade! 💯💯💯

Cason Stalls

I was contacted by Made in the Shade Blinds & More. When John came to my new home I had a product in mind for my many windows. He talked me out of what I thought I would like best. Through his experience he shared why my idea would not be ideal for my windows and he was right. We decided to take his advice. The cellular shades he recommended are perfect for our windows. I am so grateful that he was patient and kind during this process educating me about all the different products including why some just wouldn’t look good. Thank John and Made in the Shade!

Michael Domino

Made in the Shade Blinds and More Raleigh provided the blinds I selected on time as promised and their installation was perfect. Coupled with competitive pricing on their products, I would recommend them to anyone looking for window treatments.

Lesle McClure

Great to work with, fair pricing. John (Sales), Heather (Office guru), and Hunter (Installer) were all communicative and pleasant, will work with them again on future needs!

Made in the Shade Blinds Raleigh is an exceptional company. However, it takes an exceptional team to provide excellent customer service. I have had the opportunity to purchase beautiful shutters and the most amazing soft sheer blinds. I must say, I was very pleased with how pleasant they made this transition and, not to mention, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM!
