When choosing a window treatment, do you go with practicality or style? With sheer shades, you do not have to choose – you get both! The soft fabric vanes allow for variable light control and the two layers of sheer fabric help protect your room and furniture from harmful ultraviolet rays. Your “inner decorator” will not be disappointed as there are many varieties of sheer shades, from classic to elegant.

Sheer window shadings are a combination of blinds, classic sheers, and roller shades, but with no distracting inner cords. Sheer shades are the modern buyer’s choice for fashion and function among window treatments.

Vertical Sheer

What do you do about that patio door or large window that needs something? Made in the Shade’s vertical sheers might be the perfect solution. When closed, vertical sheers provide protection for your floor and furnishings from the sun’s damaging rays AND daytime privacy—you can see out, but others can’t see in. To let some light in, you can simply adjust the 180-degree rotating vanes to diffuse sunlight throughout your room resulting in a warm, soft feel. When open, our vertical sheers stack neatly to the side, leaving your view totally unobstructed. Vertical sheers are made of durable fabric and are a popular choice for Highlands Ranch Custom Blinds homeowners.

Layered (zebra)

By the fact that you’re reading about layered, or zebra shades, you are a little bolder than most, stylistically. But you may be onto something because layered shades can really make a beautiful fashion statement and still preserve the functionality you require. These impressive shades are a fusion of fabric shades and traditional horizontal blinds with no unsightly seams or interior cords. Layered shades are a roller shade with alternating sheer stripes and tightly woven bands of color. The sheer fabric helps to protect the room from the sun’s damaging rays. When fully open, these striking shades disappear behind a matching fabric-wrapped cassette valance. Be bold. Make a statement. Layered shades can add that ideal accent to your room.


Bring a little bit of Italy to Highland Ranch! Roman shades provide the elegance of draperies and the practicality of shades. Roman shades are horizontal fabric slats that neatly fold up when drawn. Style options include cascading folds, relaxed folds, teardrop shades, and tailored flat. Choose from a wide variety of fabrics, from intricate patterns to soft silks. Using your unique combination of fabrics, textures, and colors, Roman shades can help you create the perfect accent for any room. With Roman shades, you can say, “Ciao!” to bland and uninspired window treatments and begin to enjoy the beauty of these shades—the way an emperor might.


Cellular shades, featuring a unique pleated honeycomb structure, are a great option for arches and specialty windows because of their flexibility. Also, cellular shades are not only attractive but also energy efficient. The sturdy, polyester fabric is washable and holds its shape for tight stacking. Cellular shades are available in a variety of cell sizes, textures, and colors. Also, they are available in the entire spectrum of opacity—from sheer to total darkness. Easily raise and lower the shade using the pull cord or remote control. Lastly, the neutral fabric on the reverse of the shades provides a consistent look for added curb appeal.

Roller/Solar/Exterior patio

Do you have a picturesque view that needs to be displayed? Roller shades are the way to go since the single, neat shade completely rolls up for unobstructed viewing. They are the perfect solution for your extra wide windows or sliding doors. Choose from our diverse collection of many colors, textures, and stylish fabrics. When the shade is down, the roller shade provides a clean, stylish look that can beautifully accent any room. To hide the roller mechanism completely, add a sleek cassette valance with matching fabric.
Solar shades not only refract heat, they also greatly reduce glare, diffuse natural light, and block damaging ultraviolet rays. They are designed for both indoor and outdoor use. Additionally, solar shades are mildew-resistant, corrosion-resistant, and even flame-retardant. Given all these benefits, they are an ideal choice for south- and west-facing windows. Solar shades are perfect for your outdoor patio settings, too!

Wood blinds, traditional and stately, have a peaceful and calming effect and are the first choice of many Highland Ranch decorators. Slat widths begin at 1 inch and go up to 2½ inches, which can imitate the look of shutters at a much lower price. Wood blinds are offered in a variety of natural stains, paint colors, and finishes. Additionally, Made in the Shade has the ability to custom match paint and stain finishes of other furnishings. You will love the warm, natural look that these blinds provide. You can’t go wrong with wood blinds!

Faux wood

Our faux wood blinds are constructed from a resilient polymer and are treated with a UV stabilizer to prevent yellowing and fading from the sun. The advantages of faux wood blinds include lower maintenance, added durability, and more color choices. Speaking of color, faux wood blinds are available in many paint and wood-grain finishes and, consequently, can perfectly accent any room or décor. Because they are made from a synthetic material, faux wood blinds are a good choice for high-moisture areas because they resist the ravages of time: cracking, peeling, and warping.
