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 " for the mounting brackets.
  • The manufacturer will deduct up to " total, from the width, to ensure proper fit. A 1" deduction will be made for the fabric.

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 longest of the 3 measurements.
  • This is the height measurement you will order; height is always the second measurement recorded.
  • Your sheer horizontals will be manufactured to the exact length ordered, when the vanes are in the open position. When the vanes are rotated to the closed position, the shading will become longer.
  • When closed, a slight puckering may occur on the lower, most sheer section because of the contact with the sill. You may slightly raise the shading off the window sill. If preferred, the shading can be ordered " less than the measured length.

* Do not transpose width and height measurements. *

Outside Mount Instructions - Width

  • Measure the exact width (left to right) of the window frame or how wide you would like the blind to be.
  • Make sure to measure wide enough to cover the entire window and provide for minimum light gap. Example: if the window opening is 36", by ordering 40", it will provide 2" coverage on each side of the window.
  • 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 exact height from top to bottom.
  • We recommend adding 4" to this number to insure optimum light control and privacy.
  • Please be aware your height measurement will always include the headrail. Example: if the height ordered is 50" 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.
  • The length of the shade will be the exact length ordered when the vanes are tilted in the open position. When the vanes are tilted shut, the shade will become 3/8" longer.

* Do not transpose width and height measurements. *
