To find width: Measure width of window opening at three different places and use the narrowest dimension for ordering. A 1/2" deduction will be taken automatically for inside mount.
To find height: Measure the height of window from top of opening to top of sill in two places. Use the longest dimension. If you prefer shade not to touch sill, deduct 1/4". If there is no sill, measure height to point where shade is to reach.
To install the product flush with the window frame, a minimum window depth of 2" is required for custom shades and 2 1/4" for Trim&Go shades.
minimum mounting depth
* Minimum mounting depth is the depth required, in the window frame, for the blind to be mounted inside mount.
measure for: outside mount natural woven shades
To find width: Measure the exact width of the area to be covered. It is recommended that 3" be added to the shade width for the standard overlap of 1 1/2" on each side.
To find height: Measure the height of the area to be covered. Measure from the ceiling or desired point above the window to approximately 1 1/2" below the window frame. If there is no sill or if blind is to overlap window frame, measure to the point the shade reaches.
allow some overlap
For outside mount applications allow the blind to overlap 1 1/2" to 3" on the sides, top and bottom of the window.
