Why Window Coverings?

a growing industry

Why should you choose window coverings as your business industry?

The answer is simple. Everyone has windows and almost every window needs a window covering. However, most consumers do not know what would be the best product choice or what all their options are. They need to work with a trained professional to guide them to the right product, material, color, operation and light control and privacy based on their needs.
That’s where Made in Shade steps in. Imagine an opportunity to genuinely help your clients improve the look and feel of each room in their home through offering beautiful window fashions. New window fashions are a great way to enhance the beauty of the room.

Always in Demand

Every home and business needs window coverings.

Whether it’s new home construction, a classic remodel or even commercial properties, there’s opportunity everywhere you look.

Every business can be affected by economic conditions. However, the custom window fashions industry serves a consumer demographic that is minimally impacted by an economic downturn. In fact, the industry has experienced all-time highs over the last few years.

Regardless of the economy, windows will always need to be covered. In addition to newly constructed homes, there is tremendous opportunity in commercial applications, and the ever-growing remodeling market, which is 4-5 times the size of the new home market.
