How To Measure

Inside Mount
Inside mount shades & blinds are installed inside the window frame.
  1. Measure the exact inside width of window frame from one inside edge to the other. Take three measurements, one near the top, one in the center and one near the bottom. Record the narrowest measurement.
  2. Measure the exact height in three places, left, center and right from top edge of opening to top of sill. Record the longest measurement.
  3. Do not take deductions on inside mount measurements. The factory will take an allowance for operating clearance.

Outside Mount
Outside mount blinds are installed outside the window frame, covering an area larger than the window itself.
  1. Measure the exact width of area to be covered. Measure from the outside of the frame to the outside of the frame.  
  2. Measure exact height to be covered, including desired overlap (usually from top edge of molding to bottom edge, or to top of sill). If there is no sill, measure to where the blind is to reach.
  3. The factory does not make deductions for an outside mount.
