over a number for an example of the specific measurement, type
in your measurements, print them out and give us a call at Interior
Mall at 1-800-590-5844 to begin your decorating project. Please
read these helpful Measuring
Hints before you begin.
Use a metal measuring tape, not a short ruler or stretchy cloth tape measure. Type your measurements into the space provided and double-check it!
Measure all windows, even if they appear to
be the same size. The differences may surprise you.
Record width first, then height (also referred to as length) to the nearest 1/8".
Inside Mount Inside mount blinds and shades are installed inside the window casing. Minimum depth requirements vary by product and headrail type, or by tube size for Solar Shades.
Measure the exact inside width of window casing from one inside edge to the other in three different places. Record the narrowest measurement.
Measure the exact height in three different places from top edge of opening to top of sill. Record the longest measurement. Solar Shades should be measured at the top only.
Do not take any deductions for clearance. The factory will take necessary deductions for a perfect fit.
Measure the window diagonally in two places, as shown. If the diagonal dimensions are not equal, we recommend an outside mount application for optimal function and aesthetics.
Outside Mount Outside mount blinds and shades are installed outside the window casing, covering an area larger than the window itself.
Measure the exact width to be covered. Be sure the measurement overlaps the window opening by at least 1 ½" on each side (3" total overlap) to ensure light control and privacy.
For Solar Shades make sure the measurement overlaps the window opening by at least 3" on each side (6" total overlap) to ensure light control and privacy.
Measure exact height to be covered, including desired overlap (typically from top edge of molding to bottom edge, or to top of sill if there is one).
