Four Decades of Experience | Colorado Made | Custom Products at DIY Prices

The Custom Shade by Innovative Openings was born from 40+ years of specialized experience in window covering manufacturing and retail. Innovative Openings has been selling roller shades in the Colorado area since 1980. Our company soon began manufacturing our own products to be sold at our brick & mortar location. We set out to create The Custom Shade as a way to make quality and custom-made roller shades accessible online, without the price tag of major logo brands. By manufacturing shades ourselves and shipping directly to you for installation, we are able to keep our prices low while providing premium products that outlast big box store solutions.

The Custom Shade is headquartered in Louisville, CO, where we manufacture and test every shade that leaves our facility, to ensure it meets our quality standard. Our experienced team is here to help you find the right shades for your windows and budget.

We look forward to working with you!
