Made in the Shade is an incredible company, with quality products, and the BEST customer service experience! Elise and Matt take so much pride in what they do and truly get to know you so they offer what makes the most sense in your home and budget! The install process was seamless and they look AMAZING!! We recently moved back to the area so have had lots of visitors and our guests cannot get over how beautiful they look in the space! It truly has made our house feel like home and the shades are timeless! I would recommend them 10 out of 10 times!

Love love love my new blinds! My experience with Made in the Shade was fabulous. Elise and Matt are the dream team – they handled everything from selection to installation. They knew just what we were looking for and we are thrilled with the results.

Elise and Matt were amazing! I called her to get some blinds ordered for our new home. She went right over to the house got the measurements. The color we wanted happened to be discontinued and she called us after 5 the day before thanksgiving to help us get a color that would match. She then got them ordered and they came in the day after we moved in, and she and Matt came over on a Saturday to install them for us. Not only did they go over and above for the blinds, they are great people as well. I would tell anyone to go to them for their window treatment needs.

We loved everything about Made in the Shade. The blinds were beautiful, the plantation shutters are awesome and our silhouette shades are gorgeous. But most importantly, Matt and Elise were amazing. They know their products and have a flair for helping you pick out just the right window treatments for your rooms. They look just as good on the outside as they do from the inside. The remote control features are awesome. And to top it off it’s a nice bonus that their prices are great as well. I highly recommend Made in the Shade and Matt and Elise!

Elise and Matt are the best, and I refer them often to my clients, as I know they will be taken care of. Great products, great service, and so much value in whatever budget you may be in. She has done the shades in my own home, and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you so much guys!

This is my third time working with Elise & Matt on a blind install. We recently converted a screened porch to a 4 season room and I wasn’t completely sure what I wanted/needed for this room. Elise suggested solar shades and they are perfect! She is so knowledgeable about her products and Matt does the install without a hitch. I highly recommend Made in the Shade!

We are very impressed with the quality of shades, service, and install from Elise Anderson of Made in the Shade Eastern Iowa. We do most home projects ourselves and thus started our search at all the big box stores. Before completing our order there we decided to get a free quote from Elise. The prices were close in comparison, and we ended up with a much higher quality product and professionally installed. We are most impressed with the varnished cornices/valences she was able to source that hide the shades and completely blend into our trim work. You don’t even notice they are there! We highly recommend the company.

Love my new shades! Perfect soft color and provides functionality to enjoy our western exposure when we want sun/shade. Elise & Matt made the process not only easy, but lots of fun!
Bridget R.

Great experience getting shades put in in our house. Both Elise and Matt are experts, not to mention very pleasant to work with.

Forgot to mention – highly recommend Elise and Matt if you’re planning on smart motorized shades with Z wave/Smartthings integration. Matt knows a lot about this which made the process way easier.

Elise REALLY knows her stuff! Anytime I need window treatments, I work with Elise at Made in the Shade and have always been extremely satisfied with the whole experience. With so many options to chose from, Elise always takes the time to provide great advice on what will work best to fit your style and meet your needs and wants. Highly recommended!

Elise does such a great job recommending the best options for your windows. She helped us at our previous house and just recently in our new home. She is so great to work with and we love the window treatments we picked out! There is no guesswork. She measures, has them installed and guarantees the products. You won’t be disappointed!
