Reviews from so many Wonderful Clients!

We are incredibly happy with our new blinds. We appreciated the flexibility in setting up an appointment and the guidance in picking our new blinds/shades. The blinds arrived quickly, and were professionally installed. We will be using them again, and highly recommend Made in the Shade Blinds & More for the Carstairs area.

There are not enough words to explain how enjoyable our experience was with Made in the Shade.

Kerri and Chalene were so easy to work with – they kept us on budget and managed to do the entire house within that budget! They have impeccable style so that made making the selections even easier!

Communication was on point! Service was impeccable!
Highly recommended!
Jenny England
The ladies at made in the Shade are very professional! When it came to changing up the living room they knew exactly what needed to be done!
Kerri and her daughter ordered up what I needed and when it arrived they had it installed in about 30 min, very impressed with quality of product, quality of service and exceptional customer care.
I would highly recommend Made in the Shade to anyone that needs there services.
John Wallace 
I had an excellent experience working with Kerri and Chalene. Considering the number of brands and the various kind of fabrics, Kerri and Chalene provided honest opinions thus helping us choose the right fabrics which are suitable for our home and our overall needs. They gave us detailed information about all the types of blinds & shades so we could make an informed decision. Additionally, if on a tight budget, there are many cost-effective but equally beautiful options and they are affordable compare to Costco, Home Depot etc. Highly recommend to all the new and old residents of Airdrie. 🙂

Kerri was incredible to work with! I lucked out by finding her with a Google Search. She came out to my home in small town Didsbury and provided her time for estimate at no charge. As someone who has never been through the process – Kerri took her time and brought samples that I could physically see. Her expertise in home design was so helpful to make my vision come to reality! The shipping was mind blowing fast compared to what I thought something like this was would be (especially around Christmas)

Kerri and her daughter came to install the next day and it was so quick & painless.

They took care of everything! Thank you for providing high quality products, education to the home owner, straight forward estimates & prompt service to a small town.

I would highly recommend ‘Made in the Shade’ for any of your window covering needs!

Thanks ladies ❤️
L J, 
If I could give more stars I definitely would! This was the best experience we have ever had purchasing blinds. We wish we would have found Kerri years ago. We only replaced blinds on 4 windows this time around but will definitely be contacting Made in the Shade when we are ready to replace the others!
Michelle Bishop, Carstairs AB
Amazing, that’s the word I would use to explain my experience with Made in the Shade Blinds & More!! Very professional, reasonably priced, and the final product was better than I could’ve expected.
Overall, they were very helpful in the decision making process and I would highly recommend this company for your window coverings.
Geri Bemister, Strathmore AB
I have used Made in the Shade in three different houses over the past 6 years and dealt with Kerri each time. Kerri is fantastic. She is highly knowledgeable and extremely personable. She makes the process from start to finish a breeze. Made in the Shade delivers on quality, you won’t be disappointed.
Rebecca Dingle, Airdrie AB
Kerri was fantastic! When she met with us, she was very professional and had a lot of options to chose from! She helped us work through the process of selecting the blinds we needed with valuable input and feedback! She knew exactly what would look good in our house! We sincerely appreciated her professional opinion and advice! She ordered them and installed them with efficiency and was always available to answer questions. Our blinds are perfect! They look fantastic, are very good quality, and are competitively priced! We highly recommend Kerri and Made In the Shade Blinds!
Lisa Metcalf, Airdrie AB
The customer service from Made in The Shade was awesome! She was very quick to come and show us blinds and help pick what would be best for the home. Once the decision was made the ordering process was easy and very timely. She installed as soon as they arrived! I can’s say enough about the quality of customer service and the blinds! Highly recommend Made In The Shade!!
Jim Wilson
Kerri and Chalene’s service was amazing! They were so quick to come out and show me what they had to offer and were so helpful with choosing colors and styles! Once we made the decision the ordering process was easy and very timely! They installed as soon as they arrived! I highly recommend them!!
Paige Bartman, Brooks AB
Kerrie and her team at Made in the Shade were nothing but fantastic. They were so pleasant to work with and really helped me understand my many options when I had no clue about anything blind related. They helped me make the best decisions for the look of my blinds but also what would work for my family in regards to upkeep and durability as we have 2 small children and dogs. I would highly recommend them and will definitely use them for all future blind needs.
Santanna Blake

Kerri did a great job in recommending style and colour of new window coverings.  The installation was fast, neat and clean (thank also to Darrell).  We love our new updated look! Thank you Kerri

Patti Phillips-Anderson, Brooks AB


The process of choosing blinds for our new home was super easy due to the expertise of our consultant.I felt confident in knowing they would look top notch.  We received the blinds quickly and the installation process went smoothly. We will enjoy the blinds for many years to come.  They were a very worthwhile investment!  Thank you. 

Tamara Cartier-Webb


I have nothing but positive comments about both this company and Kerry Kuefler who made choosing blinds for my kitchen and bedrooms so painless. Her guidance and patience were just what I needed in this process
Beyond making the choice easy she installed them all with ease. She has an ability to problem solve no matter what age of home you have. I strongly suggest giving this delightful lady your business if you are in the market for blinds.

Velma Karpa


This company is A1. Kerri is so friendly and very professional. All my blinds are beautiful and fix perfectly. I would recommend this company and Kerri 100%. Ten stars from me.

Alice Lock, Airdrie AB


I highly recommend Kerri for your window treatment needs. Great communication, quick service and good selection of products. I would definitely use her again. She helped me select a replacement for my failed privacy shade on my sliding doors and I’m quite happy with her recommendation. Thanks Kerri.

Jeremy Howe


Had a great experience. They had good selection of reasonably priced shades, and were very informative. Kerri addressed all my concerns promptly.

Jasmeet Singh Pawar


Working with Val was a pleasure, she was professional, organized and skilled. The entire job was about 2 weeks; all from the quote to the install. I was so surprised and very pleased with the final product. I would highly recommend this company to supply blinds for you.

Donna Johnson


Love my new shades! They fit perfectly and blend into the look of my new kitchen. Kerri was so easy to work with and helped me find the right product!

Lisa Demas, Airdrie, AB


A big thank you to Kerri for making the whole experience positive.  From choosing the blinds to the installation was flawless.

Connie Walters, Cochrane


Kerri has been helping us for the last 8 years.  We’ve booked 3 different appointments with Kerri, throughout various house renos over the years.  We’ve previously went with vinyl blinds but during this recent appointment we went with real wood blinds. Couldn’t be happier!  Kerri and Made in the Shade Blinds are absolutely 5 star and we highly recommend them.

J McDougald, Drumheller AB


We were very happy with the service we received from Kerri at Made in the Shade Blinds.  It is handy to have them come to the house to pick out the type of blinds and the samples to match our decor.  My husband was pleased that installation was included.  Kerri is very knowledgeable of her product and keeps her service timeline commitments.

Judy Leflar, Stettler


Kerri was a pleasure to deal with.  She responded to any questions quickly, showed up for our consultation with plenty of samples and was great at providing suggestions after she asked some questions to determine our personal style.  Product arrived faster than anticipated and install was smooth.  At no point did we feel pressured to buy outside of our budget.  Anyone looking for window coverings should ask Made in the Shade to help. 

Virginia Rathgeber, Airdrie


Absolutely amazing experience! We got solar shades for our new office building and we all love them! Kerri’s service has been outstanding! She is extremely knowledgeable and addressed all of our concerns and questions in a timely manner.  She beat the competitors quote not only by price but by delivery and installation timing.  We love the quality of the product and the work.  Thank you, Kerri, for making this so easy!

Tania Smith, Airdrie

We bought our character home 20 years ago and began to update it project by project.  We did some of the major project, furnace, plumbing, kitchen, bathrooms, roofing, garage.  My husband had worked in the industry and had grown up renovating homes.  We had renovated all homes we lived.  Replacing the windows was a project that was near the top of the list but just never got tackled. Our renovating stopped after my husband was diagnosed with cancer, and sadly, after 3 year battle he passed away.  I made the decision to continue to finish some of the projects on our renovating list and chose windows first.  I found a well recommended and very personable contractor and did the windows in 2 stages, main and upstairs last fall and basement this spring.  Early this Spring I contacted Val Sandum from Made in the Shade and we set up a time for her to come by and she brought books of samples and her expertise. She hauled the samples books into my house and we went room to room and selected window coverings to match the decor and price range I was looking for.  The blinds were ordered and installed in 2 weeks.  While I was waiting for the upstairs blinds my window contractor was replacing the basement windows.  I was so impressed with the quick response time and easy installation of the upstairs window coverings.  The day of the upstairs installation Val and I went downstairs and selected window coverings for my basement windows.  I was having my daughter and grandkids from northern Alberta come for a visit on the long weekend and was hoping to have my blinds installed and the rooms in the basement ready for their visit.  Spring is a busy time, the ladies from Made in the Shade were up for the challenge.  Kerri called me and said she had a cancellation. We were able to set up a time during my work day.  I met her at noon at my house.  She came with her ladder and tool kit as Val did earlier.  She very skillfully installed my basement widow coverings and they are beautiful.  It is amazing how changing the window coverings can change the appearance of a room.  Many of my window coverings were designed to do two things, block the sun out in our warm summer months, in an effort to keep my house cool, and let in the light the rest of the year while still having some privacy.  Thank you Val for helping me achieve exactly that.  I am very pleased and will recommend Val Sandum and Made in the Shade.

I took possession of my first home at the beginning of 2018 and after shopping around for window coverings and meeting with representatives from several different companies, I crossed paths with Kerri at Made in the Shade.  At that point, Kerri was not fully servicing the Cochrane area but made the journey out from Drumheller to meet with me and discuss my options.  She was a wealth of knowledge and her passion for her trade, as well as her dedication to get her customers the best products at the best price point was apparent.  She arrived with a van full of options to choose from and had great ideas on colours and styles unique to my home .  What’s more, Kerri also ordered, delivered and installed my entire house in less than half the time being quoted by other competitors.  Kerri made mulhouse a home and people continually pass comment on how awesome it all looks.  

Based on Kerri’s impeccable service, products, design knowledge, price and delivery timeframes, I would recommend her without hesitation.  I believe she is now fully servicing the Cochrane area and I would highly encourage anyone to contact her for a consultation before they make a choice to purchase elsewhere.  

Andrew Henten  Cochrane, AB


My blinds look incredible.  They were ordered and installed in a week.  Kerri did a fantastic job.  Thank you.

Val was so awesome to deal with!! Good quality and good price and fast friendly professional service! I’d recommend to anyone!!

Crystal Mulvey


Kerri was extremely knowledgeable about the different products available, helped pick the most appropriate blinds for the areas we needed, and provided very fast and efficient installation. We would highly recommend.

Stacy Frizzell.


Kerri is extremely knowledgable and has a great eye for design.  We had a minor issue with one of our blinds about 6 months after they were installed and I contacted Kerri and our replacement was sent out right away. 

Lindsey Nemeth, Medicine Hat, AB


I always loved that Kerri can look at our surroundings and see how to bring the colors together.  Our new cornice valances and drapery panels have done just what we’d hoped to tie everything together and create a sense of balance with our high sloped ceilings by bringing the color up.  The kitchen, dining room, and living room look wonderful.  Thanks Kerri.

Marilyn Perini


Excellent experience with Kerri and Chalene-installation within 2 weeks of ordering!! We love our blinds and are making a huge difference in the temperature of our house and the look.  Thanks!!! Highly recommend Kerri & Chalene

I can’t say enough about Amber.  She helped me pick the right colour for my living room and I LOVE my blinds. She was very helpful through the whole experience.  Thanks Amber?


Before calling Kerri, I went to a well known Calgary window covering business and after spending two hours I left very confused.

Kerri came to our home and presented many options and helped me narrow it down, she measured and in less than a month our new coverings were installed on all 16 windows.

She and Val were amazing – very efficient – the installation was done in less than an hour and absolutely no mess.

Kerri, thank you for your suggestions and for the lovely finished result.

Carrie Anne

I love my cellular blinds… thanks Kerri for all of your help! They look great.

I am very happy with my new roller blinds from Made in the Shade.  They give my house that clean, modern feeling that I was looking for.  Amber was great at helping pick out my styles and colours and had them installed quicker than I imagined.  My husband now wants to order more, even for some windows we hadn’t planned on.  I’m happy to continue to refer Amber at Made in the Shade to anyone looking for professional, stylish, economical window coverings!

Hi Kerri…

I am rather late in sending this email but it’s purpose is simply to THANK YOU for the very lovely surprise we received in the mail a while ago. It was so thoughtful of you to send Ron and I a gift card to the Cineplex in response to referring you to my brother and sister-in-law. I really can’t express how meaningful it was and the impact it had on me. I have to say that passing your name along was soooooo easy to do because you were absolutely wonderful in every way and we love our awesome blinds.

Thanks again and have an amazing weekend. All the best in your business!!!

We just completed a project to choose and install 17 new blinds for our home with Kerri and her company “Made in the Shade Blinds and More”. We were so happy with the job from initial telephone contact through to final installation. Kerri was a pleasure to work with and was professional and efficient in helping us to choose and customize the window coverings for each part of our house. Installation day was quick and the end result was a beautiful finish to our windows. I highly recommend Kerri for her excellent communication, customer service and expertise.

Thanks again!


Dear Miss Kerri,

I am writing this letter to you to thank you for our beautiful blinds. They are wonderful. I would recommend these blinds to everyone. They are easy to put up or down, open or close and the wood is wonderful too. Easier to keep cleaner than the other ones. They make my living room and windows a lot nicer. In fact the whole room looks really classy now.

I also want to thank you for your professionalism and the manner in which you presented the new blinds.   You and your helper were really kind and caring and making sure they all worked the way they were supposed to was marvelous. Thank you also for being such a fun person.

Like I told you I would recommend you and your staff and your company to any one at any time.

Thank you again for everything, Hope to see you soon for more new blinds.

Your friend and happy customer

Kerri and the team at Made in the Shade did an exceptional job at the ATB Branch.  Not only did they thoroughly identify what we needed their timely response and professional installation have helped improved the decor and atmosphere.  We are much more comfortable in our offices because of the work from their team, thank you!



Just want to thank Kerri from Made in the Shade for the professional way that our window coverings were presented to us.  We were given many options to look at with pros and cons of each making  the decision making easy.  Kerri travelled to our out of town home twice bringing samples, measuring and installing the window coverings.  They are awesome and just what we were looking for.  The installation was great, so glad we went with their company.

Nichole & Heather,
Just wanted to thank you Nichole & Heather for the Graber Blinds for my kitchen windows from Made in the Shade.  They look awesome and I am totally impressed  because you ladies were able to satisfy my request.  The color and the room darkening was actually what I wanted.  It was so nice to have blinds selected and installed directly from my home.  Thank you Nichole for coming and for your knowledge and professionalism.

My new blinds are fantastic.  Kerri’s guidance with colours and what types of blinds would work for different areas of my home was great.  Installations was done in a timely manner.  To anyone looking for a window covering for a patio or garden door, I absolutely love my slide-vie blind.  Many thanks to Kerri, Heather and Kelly.  Would highly recommend Made in the Shade Blinds & More!

We recently had Heather and her Team from Made In The Shade Blinds give our office a fresh and updated look.

They came in when we were closed so that they didn’t interfere with our work which was fantastic! The new cordless roller shades are absolutely fabulous still letting some light in but keeping the glare from our computer screens.  From measuring to removal of the  old blinds to installation of the new ones they did it all and in less than 2 weeks! I like them so much, now I want my house done.

Thanks again for your professionalism and our beautiful new shades!

I was in need of new blinds. I called Val at Made in the Shade Blinds for a home consultation. Val helped me make a decision on the blinds that I can be very proud of.
We have a lot of Windows which I love. When the installation crew, Kelly and Kerri came to hang them they were done in no time. All the staff I met were very knowledgable, courteous and friendly. I am very happy with the blinds and would highly recommend
Made in the Shade Blinds.

Heather and the Drumheller team have done my office, my home and my mom’s house. Price has always been competitive and the service is top notch. They allow you to select your blinds right in your home, so you can coordinate and get advice. The complete installation was done perfectly, with nothing for us non-handy people to do. I recommend Heather and Made in the Shade to everyone.

By Hansine Kostelecky

The staff at Made in the Shade Blinds in Drumheller are an extremely professional and were such a pleasure to work. Recently had new blinds installed in my home which completely compliments the other décor work that they had done previously. They have made my house feel more like home. I highly recommend their product and services!

By Tammy Jensen

Heather and Kerri are fabulous to deal with. Their service is second to none. Our blinds were measured and installed in a very timely manner….they even came and installed when I was away so I was lucky to come home to new beautiful window coverings. They offer great advice and their prices are more than reasonable. I can’t say enough good things about them. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for new window coverings.

By Val James

Living in an upper floor condo, the heat in the summer was just too much, however after Heather and her team installed new blinds throughout, we were amazed at how well they stopped the heat! On top of that, they looked beautiful and were a major selling feature when we recently sold our place! The team at Made in the Shade Drumheller is so knowledgable, easy to work with, and invested in what they do! They took our ideas and transformed our space! I can’t wait wait to hire them soon in our new home!!

By Caitlin Hummel

Had our living room draperies redone along with some decor staging. What an incredible end result from an owner with a flare for this kind of work and a great decorating eye. We were so pleased that we had a second room done a year later. Needless to say that they were as consistent as the first……and hats off to their installer as the job was completed while we were on holidays. I have to say that this company scores a 6 on 5-star rating scale.

When we replaced the windows in our duplex I called Made in the Shade Blinds & More to get us some new window coverings. The girls were fantastic to work with, they gave great suggestions to what would work and the colors that were available. We were able to color coordinate the blinds to the rooms and they look fantastic. Thanks Heather & Kerri for helping me pick out the right blinds and to Kelly for installing them for me.

I purchased blinds from Made in the Shade in April 2016 for one of my spec homes.  There were many products and colors to choose from but Nichole walked me through them all.  The blinds look amazing and really pulls the house together.  Nichole has a real eye for design and her customer service was very impressive.  I will use Made in the Shade in our future houses.  I would recommend Nichole to anyone!

-Luke Jones (owner) Luco Homes


We are so excited for our new blinds!  We were looking for a designer a couple years ago and Nichole was recommended to us by a family member.  We had a hard time finding a designer that really understood our lifestyle and how it played into our home.  We really wanted a country/modern style and needed help designing everything.  She helped us pick new flooring, paint colours, and even showed us how to re-finish our cabinets.  We needed to update our blinds and Nichole had just started with Made in the Shade so the timing could not have been better.  We could not be happier with how our little home has turned out.  Nichole has been a pleasure to work with and made the experience so much easier.

From the Black Star Cattle Company


When we decided we would like to change our window coverings I was nervous about the commitment and cost.  I knew that whatever I chose had to be something that would last and that I would be happy with for a very long time.

The huge windows in our home give us such a beautiful view, I wanted something that would still allow us to see the view partially while giving us relief from heat or cold and of course privacy.  Kerri and Heather were very conscious of what I was looking for and were very supportive. They wanted to make certain we were going to get a product we would be happy with.  This was true of both the top down bottom up blinds we got first for the bedrooms, office and kitchen and then with the Pirouettes on the large windows in the main areas of the house.

Kerri and Heather measured more than once to make certain the blinds would fit as they were supposed to and brought to my attention anything that would change the look of the fit.  I looked at several samples and options.  I knew what I wanted… I still wanted the view and the protection from heat and cold.  More than once they told me that they did not want to sell me something that wouldn’t cover my needs and wants.  They wanted me to be happy and satisfied with the product, whatever I chose.

Their care and attention to detail is second to none.  The blinds arrived and were installed in timely fashion.  There was no mess left behind and Kelly is a master at installation.

During the time of ordering the blinds, Kerri also helped me choose paint colors and understood my style.  I like earth tones and soft colors; at no time did I feel she was influencing my choices with her own personal preferences.  I couldn’t be happier with the look and feel of the house with the new blinds and wall colors.  I have had numerous compliments on how the blinds look on the inside and out.  The window coverings throughout the house modernize it and bring the look into this decade of decorating without the feeling that it could ever be outdated.  My husband’s biggest concern was heat loss in the winter or increased temperature during the summer.  There is no doubt, in the short time we have had the blinds installed, we can tell the blinds definitely make a difference in the hot and cold through the windows.

I look forward to my daughter building her new home and have encouraged her to talk to Made in the Shade about her window coverings.

I know this is a bit wordy but anyone I have talked to about my experience with Made In the Shade has heard this same story.

Amber and Kerri were great to deal with.  They made the selection process easy with all the samples available to look at.  They were knowledgeable and answered all my questions and concerns.  The cellular blinds arrived and were installed quickly.  I will be recommending Made in the Shade to others. Thanks again Amber!

Made in the Shade put new blinds in a couple of our new builds.  They look really nice and we are happy with how they look.  Nichole and Kyle gave us really good service and professional installation.  Our clients love how easy the blinds are to use and we love that they didn’t cost an arm and a leg!

Excellent experience with these ladies.  They presented me with different options and help to decide on the best fit for my kitchen.  They were flexible with meeting and installation times.  I love my new blind!

Kerri’s service is above excellent!!!! She is tremendous! Her prices beat Costco, Home Depot & Budget Blinds.  She has a passion for her work & it shows.  She’s friendly, kind & easy going.  Her service & her products are awesome! I would highly recommend Kerri!

Kerri and Chalene installed some beautiful blinds in our house.  The top down/bottom up for our living room, for extra privacy and it lets a nice light through keeping the room warm feeling.  We got the blackouts for our bedrooms and they are great, absolute darkness.  The prices were very reasonable and they were very efficient with getting them in and installed! Thanks again!

My wife and I had excellent service from Val Sandum. The blinds have been very good. I highly recommend “Made in The Shade Blinds”

I have had the pleasure of having Kerri and her team working in not one, but two of my homes.  On both occasions, communication regarding scheduling was clear, and she and her team were friendly, professional and respectful of my home.  I had 3 blinds installed (in bedrooms, in both homes).  Two were smaller – in my children’s rooms, and larger ones in the Master Bedroom.  They were installed quickly and looked/worked wonderfully.  All were room darkening, which I highly recommend.  We had a small issue with one of the blinds in our Master Bedroom (due to me forgetting to follow her only instruction of raising them slowly and levelled!).  When I contacted her for help on resolving the issue, she promptly made an appointment to come and take a look at the problem.  When it wasn’t something that she could fix on her own, she pulled my warranty information, and had a new one ordered right away.  She also gave me information for a shop that could fully repair the first one, should I decide to do so.  Good blinds/window coverings are one of those funny things that you never think to spend money on…but having done so twice now, I can truthfully say that it’s not something we have ever regretted spending money on!  If you are struggling with how to keep your bedroom in “Bat Cave” status, call Kerri and book an appointment today!


Kerri and Chalene were awesome to work with! Kerri helped pick the right blinds and made sure I understand everything. When the blinds came in they worked around my schedule and installed quickly and even though I was on a business call.  Would definitely use them again and highly recommend!  Thank you Kerri & Chalene!

We had a wonderful experience with this company.  Kerri was fabulous, lots of experience, great ideas.  The shades arrived very quickly and the installation was prompt.  A beautiful job of installation, very clean. Love our new shades, would recommend “Made in the Shade” to anyone needing window coverings.  Lots of choice, great quality.  Thank you!
