We have been really impressed with our new blinds from Total Shade. From start to finish attention to detail and product finish was outstanding. The different levels of weave were explained to us depending on our requirements for sleeping or working – and we decided on a different level of weave for each of our rooms. We were away when the blinds were installed and were absolutely delighted with the workmanship and finished product – and all really clean and tidy when we arrived back in our condo!
What a fantastic difference the shades have made – we can still see out even with the shades down on the sunniest of days and in our bedroom we can sleep comfortably in darkness with a thicker shade weave. We have no hesitation in recommending Total Shade for the professional service, excellent communication both before, during and after our shades were fitted – an excellent product reducing solar heat gain, protecting against damaging UV and improving the comfort of our condo! –

By far the best investment we’ve made in our apartment was the purchase of the Total Shade system for all the rooms. We are fortunate to have a wonderful panoramic view over Lake Michigan to the east and south as well as the parks and city to the south and west. Because of our exposure we are subject to intense sunlight; adjusting our shades, with the easy and delightful hand-held electronic control, we’re able to moderate glare and heat gain as we wish – without materially affecting our view and the pleasure it provides. At night when it’s cold outside we lower the shades (the dead air space between the shade and the glass is a great insulator) and retain the magic of the stars and moonlight on the water as well as the twinkle of city lights.

I am very happy with the shades that I purchased from you for my condo.  My condo at Lake Point
Tower has about 30 windows and receives a great deal of sunshine during the day.  Before I ordered your Total Shades, it was always unbearably hot in my unit.   In addition, all of my furniture and rugs were faded.  My old shades just didn’t keep out the sunshine or reduce the solar heat. My Total Shades have greatly reduced the heat in my condo and my furniture and rugs are now better protected from the sun. My new shades also have reduced our electricity bills during the summer. We don’t have to set our air conditioners’ thermostats as low as we had in the past.

More importantly, with 30 windows I was constantly raising and closing my old shades manually. It became such a chore that I just kept my shades down all of the time.  The reason my husband and I purchased our unit was because of the wonderful view.  However, due to all the effort involved in raising and lowering the shades, we were not enjoying that view.  This all changed when you installed my new Total Shades.  It was the best investment that I had ever made for my condo.

Finally, I want to thank you for your good service.  Whenever we needed help with the shades, your firm promptly came out and resolved all the problems.  I have been very impressed with your firms’ responsiveness.   Because of the benefits of your product and the reliability of your service, I have recommended your company to others.

“I found Total Shade to be the best available product on the market for reducing glare in my terminal. The entire process was simple and easy. We designed a use for the Thermal View product that had never been tried before, and it worked great. When, I need something similar in the future, Total Shade will be the first place I call.”
