Lana is so pleasant & makes process flawless; Brian is meticulous in his measurements & installations. We have purchased gorgeous Norman Shutters thru ‘Made in the Shade Blinds North DFW’ for 80% of our home (most recent rooms installed 12/28/23 … only 2 rooms left to go! There are only positives to purchasing Norman Shutters! Amazing how they “finish off” the look of each room (classy!). BTW: we feel they will definitely add value to our home when we decide to sell. Highly recommend Lana & Made in the Shade Blinds North DFW!

Lana is easy to work with and helped me pick out the perfect color and style for my space. I am very pleased with my new shades and will recommend them to friends and family:

I used Lana at Made in the Shade to install several types of window coverings (traditional blinds, roller, and mechanical) in a newly built home. Also installed decorative window dressings in the main bedroom. Lots of options to choose from that you are mindfully walked through. And Awtrey, the installer does fantastic work and is very knowledgeable. I recommend this company if you’re in the market for new window coverings.
Preston and Sarah S., Argyle

Thanks Lana… I really love my shade. I just feel so much more comfortable and secure at night with it. I can watch tv in my nightgown without worrying that someone will come to the door and spot me before I can scramble for a robe. I can walk to the laundry room without feeling on display. It actually changes the way I feel about my home. The guy who did the installation was very nice. He gave me the option of installing the little magnets on the door…said that if I changed my mind and wanted them, he’d come back.

Hi Lana, the Roman shades look great!
Shannon P., Argyle
Lana and her staff are professional, timely, and efficient. Lana looked at our space and listened to our preferences prior to making a product recommendation, which was practical and affordable!  We love the Roman shades!
Kimberly, T., Denton
The shutters are in and they look fantastic!  Thank you so much for your help.

I contacted Lana at Made in the Shade for shutters on our house under construction while we lived in another state. She came out and measured and the shutters were there not too long after we moved in. Very easy to work with and very happy with the installers! Just today they installed woven shades. They are beautiful, the shade in the master bath really completes the room and hides a frosted window, the shades in the living room can be lowered from the top to have privacy and light at the top, they are airy and the valances over a slider and kitchen window complete the look!
Karen T., Robson Ranch, Denton
Lana Smith is not just one of the best in her and surrounding areas, but one of the absolute best in the industry! Incredibly creative and intuitive, efficient, timely, and overall always a wonderful experience with every project. I consider myself lucky to work together with her on projects and very much look forward to more!

Lana did a great job helping us select the right window treatments and Brian professionally installed. Looks Great.

Sandy F., Flower Mound
I highly recommend Made in the Shade if you are in need of window treatments and want to have a great experience in the process. Lana was so amazingly helpful and patient and giving guidance to me during this process which was entirely new to me! I hadn’t picked out window treatments for a modern home ever!

Lana had some extremely nice and modern options from various suppliers and manufacturers. She even met me personally at Norman Blinds HQ so we could look at their product in person. We had a tricky door and window to deal with in our master bedroom and she suggested the smart Blind by Norman. It turned out perfect! It was an ideal solution and I don’t think we would’ve thought about this without Lana‘s help. See photo of the Smart Blind which I uploaded. We love it!

We needed up buying more window treatments for other windows later on and she came back to make a second trip to help me as I was struggling a bit w “what to do”. Again she came through and met with me to come up with some samples that ended up working very well in the end after we got the blinds installed on the windows.

Lana has a great installer and his name is Autry. He was polite and very thoughtful and his communication with phone and/or text messaging to set up the installs which I appreciated because I have such a busy job in customer meetings etc.

I definitely would recommend Lana for Made in The shade if you are in need of window treatments from a true professional! She has such a good eye for detail and I appreciated the way she made sure not to overwhelm me with too many options. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Tami, N., Hickory Creek
Great service and high quality window shades. Lana was so helpful coming to my home and helping me with choices. My window coverings are beautiful and I love the motorized feature!
Mary A., Robson Ranch, Denton
Lana did a fabulous job in designing our living room and dining room drapes and cornices. She understood exactly what we were look for and they turned out gorgeous! Now the rooms look warm and elegant!
Tom and Karen, D., Robson Ranch, Denton
Lana was super easy to work with and very helpful. Even though our project was not a huge one, she went out of her way to help where as other businesses I contacted would not even take the job. From initial consultation, to ordering, to installation, it was all great. Excellent installation team as well!  
Chris C., Flower Mound
“Hi Lana, I just got your sweet note and gift card. Thank you so much! That was not necessary but very thoughtful. We love our window treatments, and I will continue to recommend you to anyone looking!  Hope you are doing well and thank you again!  BTW, you have beautiful handwriting!”
Angie V., Lake Kiowa

“The blinds look and feel amazing !!! 
Awtrey is a gem and a wonderful soul.”
Ruth D., Hickory Creek

Lana and Brian are wonderful to work with. Everything from selection to install went very smoothly. I will definitely use Made in the Shade Blinds again for any of my future needs. Brian did a wonderful job installing our new Shutters. We love them!

Jana M.

Good morning Lana,
Thank you so much for coming over to our home and going through the different options and helping us select the right one; also, for taking the time to discuss the different curtain fabrics and sending us a quote. We really appreciate it!
Awtrey was here last week to install the blinds. He was very professional, courteous and answered all our questions.
We truly enjoyed working with you and Awtrey.

Veena R., Roanoke

I would like to thank Lana Smith and her company Made In The Shade for our recent project which gave a much needed shade component to our Outdoor Pizza Kitchen!  Based on Lana’s recommendation of a 5% filtration level, we chose matching shades which were custom finished to blend perfectly with our brick, stone, and dark stained cedar beams and posts!  The project was right on schedule and the team of installers were professional, kind, and respectful, and made on-site minor adjustments to complete a beautiful matching product!  The shades operate flawlessly, and have added a tremendous upgrade addition to our outdoor “backyard resort!”
Heartfelt thanks to Lana and all of her team!

Jeff G., Argyle

Lana, Thank you so much for working with me and finding beautiful window treatments.  The house looks amazing!  I would never have considered some of your suggestions and am very glad I took your advice.  Your installation team was efficient, pleasant, accommodating, and made it look easy even though it wasn’t on those super tall windows. Will recommend you to  anyone needing window treatments.  Thanks again!

Jennifer G., Decatur

My experience with Made in the Shade and the owner/operator, Lana, was stress-free and pleasant which equates to a terrific experience overall. Lana was prompt to respond to my request for an estimate and to come to my house to measure and talk through options. She was not pushy with trying to up-sell me but would tactfully offer helpful suggestions. The price was reasonable, and I’m very pleased with the result.  

Eva L, Northlake

Awesome Service -It was a very good experience, loved the installers because they were friendly and helpful. Thank you,

Oscar and Maria R., Keller 

I truly enjoyed working with Lana on selecting shades for my kitchen-family room! She listens and is knowledgeable on all available choices. I was considering some fabric for valances, and was also impressed with the many beautiful choices that aligned with my traditional preferences. Awbrey, her installer, also did an excellent job.

Louise L., Lewisville

Lana and Awtry are a great team! I will always get my window treatments from them. Not only do they make the process easy, but they genuinely care about the client being happy with the product. Highly recommend them!

Valeria C.

Lana with Made in the Shade did a wonderful job!!! She is so knowledgeable & had a variety of products & many choices for our windows! I had old blinds with broken chords. We replaced them with Norman cordless Oak wood. They are beautiful!!! I will highly recommend!!! Very friendly & professional. Her installer is very professional. Great product & value! Will be updating all window treatments with cordless blinds….Love them!  

Marion,H., Hickory Creek

Hi Lana. Our outside porch shades were installed yesterday. They are just great! Best installation ever, kudos to you & your crew! 

Melinda U., Argyle

Lana is THE person to call for wonderful products and friendly, yet professional service. She offers a wonderful variety of choices at very reasonable costs. We just had our first experience with MADE IN THE SHADE BLINDS but it will not be our last. We highly recommend her and her company! 

Paula A., Argyle.

Hi, Lana, I want to thank you and to let you know how pleased I am with the shades I got through you. My need to block light in our bedroom has been solved, very tastefully. The new shades are subtle and quite attractive at the same time. I’m impressed by their quality, including the handy pull chain. Thank you also for your promptness in service. It was so wonderful having you come into our home to see the exact location in which shades were needed. The fabric you recommended was perfect and looks great. The shades were ready for installation sooner than I expected! And the installer was wonderful: competent, efficient, and kind. I couldn’t have asked for more!  Thanks again!

Sincerely, Jo K.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Made in the Shade’s Lana Smith. The experience was exceptional from start to finish. She was the utmost professional with excellent ideas. Lana is extremely creative and patient throughout the process. In the end, my blinds and shutters were exactly what she promised and more. I’m ecstatic over the final product and will be recommending Lana and Made in the Shade moving forward!

Shellie J.

Hi Lana, The shades look awesome!!

Brittany P., Trophy Club

Lana is one of the most professional, knowledgeable business owners I have had the privilege to work with. She is honest, reliable and provided beautiful blinds for our home. The installer, Autrey is also a professional extension of her business. Highly recommend Made in the Shade!!

Rhonda M., Colleyville, TX

From working with Lana in selecting window treatments to fit my taste, home and budget, I was extremely satisfied. Brian, the installer of my plantation shutters, was meticulous. He made sure each shutter was installed perfectly. I highly recommend Made in the Shade!

Lois F.

Hey Lana! Awtrey is currently installing the shades, beautifully, we are so happy with them!  Leanne D., Argyle, TX

I’ve gotten so many compliments on the bypass shutters on our patio door.  We love them!

Pat H., Corinth, TX

Hi Lana, We are very happy with our new blinds. Thank you for your service.

Valeria C.

Hi Lana, I’d like to talk to you about shades for our remaining windows. When are you available for a consultation? P.S. We are very happy with the shutters!

Barbara D., Flower Mound, TX

Thank you so much for your help Lana. I truly appreciate all you have done. Those paint colors look like just what I was thinking of. Yippee. I agree Sherwin Williams is such a wonderful product.  The shutters are absolutely perfect in every way. What a difference. Best decision ever!! Hope you enjoyed the snow.

Kathleen F., Flower Mound, TX

We had a great experience with Lana at Made in the Shade.  She gave us a wide array of selections for our new shutters which matched the oak perfectly.  Bryan did a great and quick job with the installation–he was able to finish installation without issues.  Two months later, we purchased seven motorized rolling shades.  Again, Made in the Shade performed to expectations in quality, installation and price. Highly recommend Made in the Shade for all window covering needs.

Scott M., Highland Village, TX

Hi Lana- I can’t tell you how beautiful all the windows are now!  We love everything! …I think we will be ordering a duplicate of the roller shade for the other back window.. and probably shutters for the master bedroom. 
Have a good weekend and stay dry!
Patti, H., Arlington, TX

Lana is so sweet and professional! She was patient when I was trying to decide which style of shades I wanted for our home and kept me updated throughout the process. Great, quality selection. Installers were on time and quick to install. My husband and are very happy with our shades!

Cara K, Dallas

Made in the Shade was a great experience.  They responded to my request for an in-home appointment quickly, Lana was amazing, helping me evaluate my needs and pick just the right window treatments for each of my room.  Delivery was on time and installation was fast and professional.  I would certainly use them again.
Brenna B, Flower Mound
Great experience working with Lana. We were overwhelmed with all the options out there and Lana LISTENED to what we needed. She immediately narrowed the options down to something that works perfectly in our space!! Such a smooth and easy process – from initial consultation, measuring, installation. I will definitely use Lana in the future and highly recommend
Karen S, Flower Mound
We had an awesome experience with them. Our shutters look amazing!
Katie F, Carrollton

We had a great experience with Lana and Brian (the installer). Lana delivered our Tableaux product in the time frame promised, provided follow-up, and competitive pricing. She was very responsive and showed up on installation day to ensure everything met our expectations. I would definitely recommend Made in the Shade and would use their services again in the future.
Anissa W, Southlake

Lana and her crew did a great job on everything in our new home. She had loads of great ideas and understood exactly what we were looking for. I was a little unhappy with the way one roman shade hung on a door. She got out right away and fixed it to our satisfaction for no additional charge.
Shari W, Flower Mound

Lana has been great! She really takes the time to understand your vision and give her professional opinion. The product is great quality as well and I just love how personable and caring Lana was during the entire process.
Reginald R, Flower Mound

Lana was extremely professional and went above and beyond to provide us with the best window coverings. We are beyond satisfied!! Our media room looks so great now! I highly recommend Lana with Made in the Shade Blinds!
Travis H, Haslet

Lana was great to work with. She came out, measured and showed me several different options to choose from. Her price was very competitive and she delivered and installed when she said she would.
Thanks for a great experience.
Doug F, Highland Village

Lana was great. She first took out the time to understand what we wanted. Followed by showing us our options. Her prices were the lowest we found after getting quotes from two companies. Incidentally, the product she provided us met our exact requirements in quality and color whereas other companies asked us to compromise at a higher price.
Niyati S, Trophy Club


Our company highly recommends Made In The Shade Blinds! What can be a daunting process was made completely painless. Lana Smith was a joy to work with and as professional as they come. The shades in our office are stunning and practical at the same time. Thank You Lana for work well done!!

-LaTise B., Little Elm, TX

Hi Lana, Just wanted to say thank you again for everything! We really appreciate you coming out to discuss window treatment options and for helping us to get just what we wanted. We are very pleased with our custom shades. They compliment our décor and complete each room. I’m so glad we decided to do shades instead of blinds. Our dream house feels more like home now! Thanks Lana and Made in the Shade!
-Tim & Ivory R. , Crowley, TX

Made in the Shade Blinds provided my company with exactly what they said they would. Installation was smooth, and timely. Our shades required adjustment after installation, and Made in the Shade took care of that, as well. Lana was knowledgeable and helpful in creating the “high end” office aesthetic that we wanted. We will be working with her company again.
Jason T., Dallas, TX

Lana assisted us in picking out window treatments for our home. We purchased Shutters, blinds & faux iron. We are so pleased with the products, installation & service!! Will be highly recommending Lana & Made in the Shade to all we know.
Tricia C., Corinth, TX

Lana is truly amazing! The process was completely painless and flawless. I highly recommend using her for your window treatments.
