January 21, 2022 Rob and Kim are great to work with! They responded to all of my phone calls and emails quickly, measured for our blinds and came out the day after they were delivered to install them.

Rob & Kim installed wood blinds for my entire house. Good people to deal with, very quick setup, and the blinds came out looking way better than anything I’ve had in the past. Robert Tuccelli

August 2020 Great service! The roller shades are great! Had a couple issues initially, but they bent over backwards to make things right and perfect. Forget the big box stores, go with this local business. Jeremy Benger

July 2020 I am very pleased with my experience with Made in the Shade. Rob and Kim are a pleasure to work with. They are professional, knowledgeable, and very reliable. I just completed my second project with them and am very happy with the results. The blinds fit perfectly and look great. The end result is exactly as I had envisioned. Donna Bright – Trafford

July,  2020        This is the second time I have hired them. They are very professional. After pricing blinds other places, I think they are reasonable, excellent quality products and the installation is flawless. They installed 4 vertical blinds for me. They had many samples to choose from. Everything is carted away. They took all the necessary Covid steps to protect us all. I would highly recommend hiring them.    Diane,  Plum Boro.

July, 2020. Rob and Kim are truly amazing to work with. Their company is professional and efficient and they answered all of our questions, providing experienced guidance. We were very impressed with their communication and handling of installation during the pandemic. Chelsea Nestasie, McCandless, Pa.

Made in the Shade, Pittsburgh did a wonderful job with our window treatment . Rob and Kim were wonderful to work with, including how professional they were while in our home from first walking into the house to how clean everything was when they left. Thank you very much, I will definitely be contacting them for another project we have in the works. – Sandra Abercrombie

We recently chose to use Made in the Shade Blinds for our newly built house. From the beginning, they were friendly and professional. After meeting for a consultation at our new house, they reviewed all of their different products and provided their expertise guidance in choosing what we were looking for. The Graber wood blinds we selected were beautiful and perfect to provide privacy to our new home. They were VERY quick to provide a quote on not one, but 2 types of blinds so we could make the best selection for our budget. Once the blinds arrived, they offered an appointment days later to install them, both again quickly and professionally. I really can’t speak highly enough of both Rob and Kim, they are a great team and are fabulous at what they do! They were easy to get along with and were kind, friendly, professional, and very efficient. I’d hands down hire them again if we ever have further window treatment needs! Bethany Briscoe – Level Green.

I have used Kim and Rob McConnell with Made in the Shade Blinds in Pittsburgh on three different occasions. I kept coming back to them because they offer a quality product at an excellent price. Rob and Kim are a team that work so well together. Their work standards are of the highest quality. They deliver the product in a timely manner, and clean up everything before they leave. Rob and Kim truly care about their customers. I recommend them to all my friends and would use them again. Fran Gallo – Penn Township.

We contacted Made in the Shade of Pittsburgh for an interior window treatment consultation in our newly constructed home. From the start Rob was very professional and it was obvious he takes pride in his work. He is very detailed and performs the measurements and installation himself. The Norman USA products we chose with Made in the Shade have proven to be a quality, domestic product. The installation was fast and the final product exceeded my expectations. I was very pleased with the attention to detail and quality workmanship that went into our project. Two thumbs way up.

Rob & Kim are super friendly, knowledgeable, trustworthy, and reliable! We had a wonderful experience with them. The consultation process was outstanding! They are a creative team that will give you a number of options to meet your needs. We were able to work with them on multiple options to fit our space before making a final choice. We were very impressed with the timely installation and the close attention they pay to every detail. They installed plantation shutters throughout our home, and then created a special slide blind for our sliding glass door. It’s a perfect fit and very attractive. Their suggestions were spot on and we could not be happier with the results. From design to installation our satisfaction was primary. We absolutely love our blinds. The end result is awesome! We are very pleased with their work and materials! We highly recommend them, and would definitely use them again! – Debra Donnelly – North Huntingdon

I ordered shades for seven windows from Made in the Shade of Pittsburgh. It was a very good decision. Rob and Kim McConnell were great to work with and are very professional. Kim helped me in deciding the style and color of shades, while Rob measured all seven windows. The shades arrived a few weeks later and Rob installed easily with assistance from Kim. One shade was off kilter and they ordered a new one and would not take my final payment until the new shade came in and was installed. The shades are beautiful and look so good on my windows. Rob and Kim are trustworthy, knowledgeable with their products, and have great work quality. i highly recommend this company for all your window decor. Karen Kraeuter – Penn Township

Kim and Rob were great, and I highly recommend Made in the Shade Blinds. I bought three window treatments from them, which seems to me like a small job, but I still received excellent service as if I were doing a whole house.

Shopping was easy – Rob came to my house at a time convenient to me with lots of books to choose things from.

My window treatments came in and when Kim and Rob came to install them, we found that one blind had a big spot on it. Another shade made a godawful noise when you rolled it up or down. Neither problem was caused by Kim and Rob or their installation. They contacted the manufacturers and got me replacements without any trouble to me at all. They ended up coming three times to my house to get this all worked out, and each time they were punctual, clean, and worked with my schedule. I am very happy I worked with them on this. – Vanessa Kristoff, Southside

Rob and Kim did an excellent job. They were such a pleasure to deal with. Very professional. I would highly recommend them to anyone! Rosa, Lower Burrell 7/25/2018

Rob and Kim did an excellent job of installing our cellular shades. They were very knowledgeable and helped us choose the shades that would do the job yet not be too costly. The blinds were installed efficiently, in a timely manner, and without any mess for us to clean. We highly recommend these professionals. Gloria – North Huntingdon.

Review by Tania M. in Greensburg, PA
Project: Install or Replace Blinds or Shades
Rob and Kim are very professional and friendly. They took time to listen to our ideas, and steered us in the direction that would better suit both the picture window and bay window. Being very patient to our time needed to compare color swatches. We also had several sets of kitchen Windows that we chose blinds for. We just had them all installed today and we love the results!! We would be thrilled to recommend this company. – Tania M

We loved working with Kim and Rob! They were a complete pleasure to work with from the start. Very knowledgeable about their products and extremely dependable with great pricing. Everything was on time and the installation was perfect. We HIGHLY recommend using them for your window covering needs. – Ashley

This is the first time we used window treatment services. We’re very pleasantly surprised by the experience. It’s convenient and very reasonably priced. We received excellent advice and the result is just as we had hoped. And even more important, they are such nice people! – Yushin Chyu
Fox Chapel

Rob and Kim were excellent to work with! I was able to schedule my consultation for just a couple of days after my initial inquiry. They brought plenty of samples and spent a lot of time reviewing all the options with me, but were not pushy at all. Rob responded to any emails I had with questions within an hour. After making my decisions, they offered to come back to my house to finalize everything with me. The blinds and shutters were delivered/installed within the estimated time frame Rob gave me up front. Since we have recently built a house, we have been dealing with many different companies/people, and Rob and Kim were by far the easiest to work with! We bought blinds/shutters for 75% of the windows in our house all at once from Made in the Shade, I would recommend them to anyone! – Katie – North Huntingdon

Very pleased with the excellent service and quality of the blinds I recently had installed in my home. It was the best price also. Would highly recommend them and really apppreciated their excellent communication and professionalism. – Patti Skorupka

Kim and Rob
Great job love my blinds, and thank you for your great service promptness and integrity = Renee and Dick Quinn Monroeville

highly recommend Made in The Shade Blinds of Pittsburgh.

Two of our 12+ year old vinyl plantation shutters broke recently and could not be repaired. Replacing them was way more difficult than I had imagined. The original shutters had been mounted on the frame of our casement windows and none of the replacement options with a similar mount that I was shown (by Rob or others) were acceptable.

Rob was the only vendor that stuck with me. He eventually found a faux wood option that was narrow enough that it could be mounted on the inside. I am thrilled with the result and the quality of the product. I am sure that I’ll need to replace my other old shutters eventually and I’ll be sure to call Rob to do the job.

Also, Rob always showed up on time for our appointments and when he and Kim came for the installation, the room was left neat and clean. – Deb Truitt Fox Chapel

We loved working with Rob and Kim! They were very professional and great, down to earth people. They came to our house with many samples, which we appreciated. They worked with us on ordering to get the best prices possible. We built a new home and didn’t order in time for our blinds to come in by the time we moved in, but Rob came out specifically to put up temporary blinds for us – on the day we moved in! We are very happy with our window treatments and would do business with them again! – Melissa King

Kim & Rob are so easy to work with and very knowledgeable in what they’re doing! i would recommend them to anyone! thank you so much for your hard work! – Alyssa Cavallaro

I hired Rob and Kim to do the blinds on a newly remodeled house that I had purchased and I would highly recommend them for other potential customers. They were prompt, friendly, and very professional. I thought the price was very reasonable and they came back to measure additional windows for the order the next day after I called them. They reviewed the estimate with me before the order and came to install the blinds as soon as they arrived. As I said, I was very pleased with their work and would recommend them to others in the future. – Dan Wessler
