Inside Mount Instructions - Width

  • Use a steel measuring tape and measure to the nearest 1/8.
  • Measure the exact width (left to right) of the inside edge of the window frame in 3 places (top, middle, bottom).
  • Take the smallest of the 3 measurements.
  • This is the width measurement you will order; width is always the first measurement recorded.
  • Your window must have a minimum depth of 1 " for the mounting brackets.
  • The manufacturer will deduct up to " total, from the width, to ensure proper fit.

Inside Mount Instructions - Height

  • Measure the exact height (top to bottom) from the top inside edge down to the window sill in 3 places.
  • Take the shortest of the 3 measurements.
  • This is the height measurement you will order; height is always the second measurement recorded.
  • We recommend you subtract 3/8 for carpet clearance.

* Do not transpose width and height measurements. *

Outside Mount Instructions - Width

  • Attaches to the wood frame or mounts above the molding.
  • Make sure to measure wide enough to cover the entire window and provide for minimum light gap. Adding 6" to 8" is recommended. Example: if the window opening is 70", by ordering 76" it will provide 3" coverage on each side of the window.
  • The valance will be about 2" wider, than the width ordered, for valance returns.
  • This is the width measurement you will order; width is always the first measurement recorded.
  • If you specify outside mount, the manufacturer will not take any additional deductions.

Outside Mount Instructions - Height

  • Measure the height you would like the blind to be by measuring top to bottom of the window opening.
  • We recommend adding about 4" to 6" to this number to ensure maximum coverage and to accommodate the headrail.
  • The height measurement you provide must include the headrail. Example: if the height ordered is 80" this will be the height including the headrail (from the very top of the headrail to the bottom rail).
  • You will mount the headrail on, above or beyond the window frame.
  • Some windows have decorative trim which may interfere with mounting; it's important to add to your measurement to mount above the trim. Remember to request extension brackets.
  • If the blind extends to the floor for a patio door, deduct at least a " from your measurement to allow clearance for the vanes.
* Do not transpose width and height measurements. *
