How to Measure for Blinds or Shades
1. Inside Mount (When there are no room between wall and window)

1.1. Measure the exact widht (left to right) of the inside edge of the window frame in 3 places (top, middle and bottom)
1.2. Make all measurements to the nearest 1/4 inch, round DOWN for width.
1.3. Take the SMALLEST of the 3 measurements, this is the width that you will order.
1.4. Production department will make the necessary deductions to ensure the blind/shade fits inside your window.

2. Outside Mount (When there are room between wall and window)

2.1. Measure the exact width (left to right) of the window frame or how wide you would like the blind to be.
2.2. Be sure to measure wide enough to cover the entire window and provide maximum light coverage.
2.3. Example: IF the window opening is 36" wide, it might be helpful to order 40" if the space allows. This will provide 2" coverage on the each side of the window.
2.4. No deduction/addition will be made to the width ordered.

3. Order 2 Separate Blinds

3.1. Order 2 separate blinds by taking the width of the window you measured and dividing it by 2. Then add 1/4" to that number and enter that number for your width. This calculation is made because the factory will deduct 1/2" for an inside mount blind or shade. Example: If your window measured 80" wide you would calculate for each of the blinds as follows: 80"/2 = 40" 40" + 1/4"= 40 1/4"
3.2. For 3 blinds in one window, repeat the same steps. Example: If your window measured 90" wide you could calculate for each of the blinds as follows: 90"/3 = 30" 30"+1/4" = 30 1/4"

4. Height: How to measure the height of a window for an inside mount blind.

Measure the exact height (top to bottom) from the top inside edge down to the window sill in three different places.
Make all measurements to the nearest 1/8th inch, rounding UP for height if necessary (For Example, If the largest measurement is 27 3/8", round up to 27 1/2". If it's 27 1/2", no need to round up).
Take the Largest of the three measurements, this is the height that you will order.
