I enjoyed working with the guys at Made in the Shade Abilene. They were able to provide an affordable option for my home. They did quality work in a timely manner and were great at communicating my order and installation date! Great job! Will use again on my next home!        -Joshua W., Abilene


They were awesome. They worked with me to allow me to stay in the budget I had set. They also worked around my schedule, which made it stress free. They did great work.         -Matt L., Abilene


I am extremely impressed with the quality of work and the install done by the Made in the Shade crew! I’ve had previous experiences with other blind companies and MITS takes the cake. Their blinds look phenomenal, I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for window treatments.     -Matt A., Abilene


Thoughtful, thorough, and great work done on time. That’s what you get with these guys.    – David W., Abilene


MITS handled my home’s window treatments on time and under budget. The customer service and ease of dealing with the owner and installers was pleasant. The installers were off duty Abilene Policemen which is also a reason to support this local business. The install was quick and they even dusted, vacuumed and washed the interior and exterior windows. I recommend MITS for doing a professional job in a prompt manner. We will use them again and recommend them to friends and family. Thank you Made in the Shade! -Lane M., Abilene

Rickey was awesome to work with, very knowledgeable, professional and patient!!! He has a great selection of a wide variety of products. I was very impressed with the timeliness of product arrival and installation.  
I highly recommend Rickey Brown/MITS. -Elizabeth P., Buffalo Gap

They were pleasant to work with and did an awesome job! I will use them again! – Jackie L., Abilene

We were very impressed with the level of service provided by the MITS crew! They were very accommodating, worked with our budget, and we are so happy with the results!! I would highly recommend them for any of your window covering needs! – Katy H., Buffalo Gap

Rickey did an great job. Very professional but also personable. The shutter installation was very clean and exactly how he described it would be. We highly recommend! -Garrett P., Clyde

We had a great experience with getting our blinds and shades done for our new house with MITS. Mr. Brown showed us so many options and selections and took his time explaining each of the options. Mr. Brown and his team are very professional in what they do and we couldn’t be any happier with our choice. -Duong R., Abilene

I am very pleased with the plantation shutters that I purchased. Great sales and installation. They update my house and look awesome. Everyone comments on how nice they look. Everything was professional from the beginning to end!

Nancy M., Abilene

Mits is my go to for window coverings! Excellent experience! Thank you!

Gary T., Haskell

Made in the Shade is a fantastic business. Very communicative and responsive. Rickey was also flexible with my crazy schedule and never made me feel like an inconvenience. They were up front about costs and did not try to upsell me on anything I didn’t need. My shutters were even installed ahead of schedule which was lovely because I had guests coming in from out of town. I highly recommend them. I would say that I’d use them again, but the shutters that they installed are likely going to last a lifetime! Thank you, Rickey!! – Sandra L., Abilene

We had a wonderful experience with Made in the Shade. I met with Rickey and his wife Cindy when getting an estimate. They know their product and I felt like they did a great job of helping me with both the aesthetic and practical factors when choosing window treatments. The installation crew members were courteous, experienced, and efficient. Thank you, Rickey, Cindy, Bill, and Matt!

Scorpy S., Abilene

Made in the Shade made the entire shade process simple. They installed several shades for our office in Abilene. I was only in town for the day and they made time to meet with me. Delivery and installation was on time and were very happy with the outcome! We will use them again in the future!

Crystal C., Burnet, TX

Very pleased with the customer service I received from Made in the Shade. They were fast and efficient in ordering and installing our custom shades. Would highly recommend using them!

Katy H., Abilene, TX

Made in the Shade is a cool name, and they guys who sold and installed my wind-up canvas shade did an excellent job. Being on a finite retirement income I had to watch pennies, and there was never a hint of coercion to buy what wasn’t absolute necessary. I left off the motor drive (hand-wound works fine, thank you) and a couple of other things, and my wife and I are more than satisfied with the operation. Well played, MITS.

Jack B., Abilene, TX.

We absolutely love our new shutters in our master bedroom! Rickey and his team were so professional and timely throughout the entire process. It was truly a delight to work with him in planning the perfect look for our master remodel. I highly recommend Made in the Shade! Thank you again Rickey!

Leanna G., Abilene, TX.

Very good. Work was done on time and very professionally.

Lahoma B., Abilene, TX.

 I would recommend Made in the Shade to anyone! Rickey was so pleasant and and efficient! You can’t go wrong with them! Love my shutters!!

S. Clough., Abilene, TX.

It was great! Very friendly. Placed paper curtains at no charge until custom blinds came in. Always came to the home on the same day for measurements or to answer any questions. I highly recommend them.

Kim L., Abilene, TX.

I am very pleased with my new shutters and highly recommend Made in the Shade!

Tammy C., Abilene, TX.

great blinds, installation on time now look great, the owners took care of everything and stayed in contact with us.

Rodney C., Abilene, TX.

Wonderful company to work with. They listened to what I wanted and delivered an excellent product. They made sure every little detail was perfect! Would definitely recommend and would use again!

Kelsey Krause, Abilene, TX.

We had a great experience with Rickey and Cindy with MITS. We wanted (and ended up getting) interior shutters with hidden tilt rods in our dining room and blinds in the rest of our house, and both are great quality. After I contacted them, I promptly received communication back and they set up an appointment to come to our house within a week to show us options and measure windows. They were very flexible with giving me a couple quotes since I wasn’t sure if we wanted blinds in our garage or a few other options. They also had everything ordered and installed within about a week. They also provided temporary blinds since our expected move in date was before the installation. I would highly recommend!

Laura Wilson Tuscola, TX.

Great company if you are looking for window coverings and installation. Everything was done on a timely basis and to our satisfaction. Even had them out for a second order and install!

Connie P. Clyde, TX.

I’ve never met a Company like this before. Being hesitant to call anyone about installing shutters or replacing them. After i called they responded to take measurments. The bid was,submitted and just. The order was sent by ,ship in less than 3 weeks. By ship most likely would’nt get till 2023. Nicest couple i’ve even met. Professional, Cordial, knowledgable. Would recommend. Great job. THANK YOU nice teamwork

J. Kronbach

I had the best experience with Made in the Shade. Rickey and Cindy were helpful, kind, and went out of their way to make sure I was satisfied. I will definitely be using them again in the future and highly recommend them to anyone looking to update their window treatments!

B. Palos Abilene, TX.

I can’t say enough great things about Rickey and Cindy! They made the process of selecting shades and blinds for my new house so much less overwhelming. I actually had fun! It was so helpful that they brought the showroom to my house, making it a lot easier to hold up samples next to each window in order to see what would be a good material and/or color and pattern for each room. They handled everything from start to finish (installation). Window coverings are a big investment. I thought I could do it on my own for cheaper (i.e. Lowe’s) but I can confidently say that calling MITS was the best thing I could have done. Their knowledge was so helpful in selecting the type of covering that would work best for each room. I am especially happy with how amazing my Roman shades are in the living/dining rooms!

J. Buschman Abilene, TX.

I ordered shutters from Made in the Shade and they were efficiently installed when they arrived. It was a great experience working with Rickey Brown and I heartily recommend this company!

Johnnie Lou Boyd, Abilene, TX.

Rickey and Cindy did an outstanding job! They are very kind, courteous and professional! Highly recommend!

S. Gore Abilene, TX.

They are super sweet couple! They did an amazing job! Ordering and delivery was super simple and fast! The blinds look absolutely fantastic. We will definitely recommend to anyone!

H. Howard

From the very first handshake I knew that we picked the right people for our blinds. Rick and Cindy did an amazing job with our blinds, we couldn’t be happier. Great prices and service. It was like having family over when they were at our house during the quote and installation. If you needs blinds in the Big Country call -Made In The Shade Abilene- if you don’t get Rick to install you’re blinds then you might as well not even get any. They will have our business until the end.
