Inside:

  • Step 1: Measure the inside width at the top. Round down to the nearest 1/8". This is your ordering width.
  • Step 2: Measure the height at 3 places: left side, middle and right side. Round up to the nearest 1/8". Enter the longest measurement on your worksheet. This is your ordering height.
  • Step 3: Measure the depth at 3 places: left side, middle and right side. Mounting surface must be flat in order to attach headrail. Also, obstructions may cause measurements to vary so it is important to keep this in mind while measuring. Round down to the nearest 1/8”. Enter the shortest measurement on your worksheet. This is your ordering depth.
  • Note: Outdoor shade fabrics may be at least 1 3/8" narrower than your ordering width to allow for the mounting brackets. If this will create too much of a light gap in your window, please consider ordering an outside mount shade

Outside:

  • Shade is mounted to the wall, ceiling or molding around the window
  • Makes window area appear larger; helps hide unattractive windows or molding
  • Requires at least 2" of flat space above window molding for mounting brackets

Outside:

  • Step 1: Measure the width of the area you want to cover. Add 3 inches (1½" on each side) to help eliminate light gaps and ensure privacy. Enter this width on your worksheet; it is your ordering width and the width of the shade.
  • Step 2: Measure the height of the area you want to cover. Enter this height on your worksheet; it is your ordering height and the height of your shade.
  • Note: The fabric on outside mount shades will be narrower than your ordering width to allow for the mounting brackets. If this will create too much of a light gap in your window, please add additional width
