Moving into a new construction home gives homeowners many options to choose from when it comes to window treatments. We faced this over the last few months and were fortunate enough to find Glenn and Made in the Shade of Clayton and Fuquay-Varina. From the beginning we were put at ease. A professional presentation, great listening skills, strong suggestions when requested and an overall easy-going experience.
Glenn and Area are a wonderful team and after meeting with multiple vendors, the decision was easy.
Glenn brings the confidence of having the experience AND delivering on what he promises- excellence! HE does the installs, and you could tell that he loves to do it-another selling point for us. He is accurate, efficient, and takes more pride in his work than you can imagine. It’s very clear that his customer’s satisfaction is top of mind.
Total Quality – have no fear. We found it so refreshing to see an abundance of care being put into our project. As an aside, we went with Graber’s Cellular Shades and are 100% happy with our selection – great product functionally and aesthetically. What a huge improvement to the overall personality of our home!
So thankful that we found Glenn and Made in the Shade of Clayton and Fuquay-Varina. You will not be disappointed – make the call.

Glenn and Aurea are amazing and form the perfect pair. Aurea has a great taste and can understand the client’s personality and design goals, while Glenn has all the technical knowledge and blinds expertise and he is great with design as well. Together they made the whole process easy and enjoyable. They were very responsive and very transparent with what would and would not work on our home. Excellent customer service and quality for a great price! We searched and compared many different options around and we are so happy we decided for their services. The blinds turned out exactly how we wanted with outstanding quality and design. I cannot recommend them enough!

Glenn with Made in the Shade is awesome. He took time to access our needs and show us a lot of options for our new home. He was also very responsive and easily reachable if we had any questions. Blinds came in and were installed sooner than we expected. Overall great experience, would recommend to family, friends, and neighbors.

Glen and Aria were an absolute pleasure to work with! They made the selection process fun and stress free. The quality of the blinds they offer is unparalleled. They were extremely flexible to my schedule despite the 2+ hour commute they needed to make when coming to my house. I would recommend them to anyone in the market for blinds!

Glen was very professional, nice and very punctual with his time. We are very happy with the quality of material he uses. Would recommend to anybody looking for blinds. Thank you so much.

Glenn was fantastic. He measured every window and door with precision and installed the blinds as soon as he received them. His installation was second to none and it was obvious that he is a true professional in the field of window and door treatments. He even helped me hang a television in our new home. I HIGHLY recommend Glenn and Made in the Shade for any window treatment needs.

We just had solar shades installed on our patio by Glenn with “Made in the Shade”. They look great, are well-made, installed beautifully and we are so happy with them. Our patio is much cooler and our furniture is protected from the fading rays of the sun. We definitely recommend them.

Glenn was such a great help in picking out our blinds. They arrived early, installation was fast, and the blinds were beautiful. I would highly recommend Made in the Shade of Clayton.

Too bad I could only give them 5 stars; they are much better than that. Very knowledgeable on all the technical stuff on our Controller/iPhone controllable shades. Very helpful with fabric and style for our drapery needs. Very patient with every detail of installation, all our questions and all other aspects of our experience. I cannot say enough about how happy my wife and I are, even after more than a month since it was done. You won’t go wrong with Made in the Shade. Thank you.

We recently moved to another state and needed window treatments. In previous homes we had plantation shutters installed and wanted them in new home as well. We contacted Made In The Shade for a free estimate and owner Glenn Wangerien promptly came out to measure and provide samples. Our estimate was ready by the following day. Having these shutters previously we knew the costs and found the quote very reasonable. Our install took place about three weeks later and we couldn’t be happier. We were so pleased with them that we went ahead and had them install bamboo roman shades on the back of the home. Highly recommend this company!

We had new motorized roller shades and draperies installed in our living and dining room. Our house was built in 1999 and the windows are a little challenging to work with. Glenn and Aurea did a wonderful job working out the details, providing and installing the shades and draperies. Their attention to detail, professionalism, promptness and expertise were top notch! Working with them was a pleasure from start to finish. We had done our research and got bids from several other companies and found MITS prices competitive. We knew after their first visit that we wanted them to do the job. They were very respectful of our property and our family. We highly recommend MITS Clayton.

We recently had blinds installed by Glenn at Made in the Shade Clayton NC. We could not be happier, the product is top quality and the color choices are fabulous. I highly recommend Glenn and hope to have more blinds installed in the future.

Glenn did an amazing job on our house! I couldn’t be happier!
Brian H.

The motorized shade that Glenn installed over the tub in our master bathroom is beautiful and it works great! The order was filled much more quickly than I expected and the installation was flawless. If additional shades are needed, we will definitely use Glenn again.

From the initial phone call to inquire on the work that we wanted done to the actual completion, Glenn and Aurea were nothing but personable, professional and knowledgeable. We simply explained to them what we wanted and they came to our house with all the visuals needed. They didn’t try to sway us one way or another or try to upsell their products but listened and offered a welcomed opinion when asked. The fabrics chosen and used are top notch and the workmanship and installation exceptional. Lastly, if you have a pet peeve with time like we do then Made in the
Shade is the company for you. Can’t wait for our next project!

We are very pleased with our window treatments & would use this business again for any future needs. Our window treatment needs focused on upgrades within our current home. Glenn & Aurea quickly responded to our inquiry for an estimate, in addition to addressing our questions regarding window treatment interests & preferences. We really appreciated their attention to details & professional recommendations. One of our window treatments included a very large window over our foyer stairway. We needed a window treatment that focused on energy efficiency and still aesthetically pleasing. Glenn installed a motorized cellular shade with a gateway for Google. It looks great & we love our ability to open & close it electronically & program a schedule. We definitely recommend Made in the Shade of Clayton and Fuquay-Varina to others!

I never thought I could get excited about shades, until I met Glenn and Aurea! I was going to go with the traditional boring blinds that collect dust, and we ended up with something so different. They look so good! They are the nicest couple you could meet, and they came to my house and showed me a couple options and we ended up with cellular, light filtering shades that offer so much more than what I was originally thinking. These blinds are absolutely amazing, Glenn did a fantastic job installing them and Aurea was honest, friendly, and super easy to work with. Everything arrived and installed earlier than expected too! Love that! If you are thinking about getting some blinds or shades, contact them first before doing anything!!! I highly recommend Made in the shade of Clayton!

We recommend Made In The Shade of Clayton They did a great job of explaining everything to us and we felt that their work was very impressive and we are very happy with our shades in our porch

Would Use Again!
The service from initial contact to final delivery was outstanding. During initial booking I’d settled on one product but after working with Glenn and Aurea from the large selections I absolutely LOVE our fabric roller shades and cellular shade. They demonstrated thorough knowledge in the products, arrived timely each visit, exude such patience and I was truly impressed by the cleanup at final installation. When I came into the area to see my new look everything was in place as if it was a showroom!

A big thank you to Aurea for guiding me through the selection process with so much patience :). I’d never imagined how beautiful ‘roller shades’ can/will transform a room. These products truly add an element of elegance to our 17 year home.

I highly recommend Made in the Shade of Clayton and Fuquay-Varina for hitting the mark!
Angela H.

Wonderful product and service! Our brand new house is now with awesome windows treatments! Glenn and Aurea are amazing. Definitely I will recommend for all my friends!
Leonardo S.

Glenn and Aurea were very prompt in responding to our request to come and discuss shades for our porch. They educated me on all the choices and I felt really good about the shades we decided upon. They are so personable and easy to talk with. The installation process went very smoothly and I’m so happy with our purchase. And also grateful to have met Glenn and Aurea.
