Stan Reid, Realtor Houston, TX

I have been working closely with Cherrie Thompson with Made in the Shade Blinds and More for the past year. I have referred Cherrie to many of my clients and friends because she has demonstrated time and again that she cares about the customer and her work has been exceptional.

Made in the Shade demonstrates the high standards in servicing my homeowners. Without fail, my clients genuinely thank me for referring Cherrie to them, and always comment on the level of excellence and service that she provides.

I can recommend Made in the Shade with 100% confidence, as I know it will be a most pleasant shopping experience for my clients. Their prices are extremely competitive and even my budget conscious homeowners have shopped around but end up purchasing their window coverings from Made in the Shade.

I highly recommend Cherrie and Made in the Shade to service any of your covering needs, whether it’s a single home or an entire community!

After contacting several companies to get shutter quotations, I was very impressed with how responsive Cherrie… and the rest of her team was compared to the others shutter companies. Made in the Shade was the last company that I contacted, but the first to get me a quote, on the day that she promised to deliver it. The price was reasonable and although not the lowest, I had a gut feeling that I should go with Made in the Shade.

Thank goodness, I did. The job was professionally done from top to bottom and her certified installer did a fantastic job as well. The entire transaction ran smoothly and Cherrie’s attention to detail during the process was beyond compare.

Thanks to Made in the Shade my shutters were beautifully installed and my home looks great.

Cherrie was a delight to work with as a vendor for an office project. We have collaborated on selecting the appropriate widow treatment products for the front reception office along with windows in each office for the entire building.

She has provided great options from products quality and price stand point, and my client was satisfied with her execution and workmanship. I would highly recommend her products and services.

I enjoyed working with Cherrie Thompson from Made In The Shade Blinds & More. I had a great experience and will definitely recommend her to my friends & family who need window coverings in Houston. I prefer the cellular shades from Graber because I’m concerned with energy efficiency in my home. Having just moved to Bellaire, energy efficient window coverings was a huge concern because the home was built in 1952 and can be a bit drafty. Mrs. Thompson did an excellent job educating me on Graber’s cellular shades and the difference between the double cell and single cell. Mrs. Thompson has a friendly demeanor and I’m confident that every time I need new window coverings, she will do an excellent job for me. Thanks, MITS Houston!

Loved working with Made in the Shade Blinds of Greater Houston. Wonderful service. Excellent prices. Professional sales person who showed many options and was knowledgeable about her products, a true joy to work with. Installers arrived on time, left the work site immaculate, and were polite.

Customer service at it’s best. I had no idea what I wanted for my windows, but after meeting with Made in the Shade and getting a thorough lesson in window coverings, I was convinced that Blinds was the way to go. I absolutely love the Sorento Fabric blinds and my home became even more beautiful once they were installed. Made in the Shade went above and beyond to ensure that we were satisfied. One of the blinds was 1/8″ too short and Cherrie immediately ordered another to replace it. I would use this company time and again.
