How to Measure your windows
Measuring for INSIDE MOUNT:
Provide the EXACT window opening size. DO NOT TAKE ANY DEDUCTIONS.
The factory will deduct approximately 3/8" to 1/2" from the width you designate so your product will not rub against the sides of your window.
Measure in 3 places (top, middle, and bottom) and use the NARROWEST measurement.
Measure in 3 places and use the TALLEST measurement, EXCEPT for vertical blinds and privacy sheer blinds (use the shortest measurement).
Measuring for OUTSIDE MOUNT:
When mounting blinds outside the window casing.
- Simply measure the width and length of the window in three places
- Remember it is only necessary to give the measurement to an 1/8 of an inch.
- Horizontal Blinds Add 3 inches to the width and length measurement.
Vertical Blinds Add 4 inches to the width and 3" length measurement.
The factory will take NO deductions on outside mount blinds or shades.
You MUST add for overlaps.
