measure for: inside textured blinds
- To find width: Measure exact distance to the nearest 1/8" between inside surfaces of window frame at the top, middle, and bottom, and use the narrowest width. Do not make any width deductions. Factory will make the appropriate deductions.
- To find height: Measure exact distance to the nearest 1/8" from inside surface at top of window to sill at the left, middle and right and use the longest height. If you prefer blind not to touch sill, deduct 1/4". If there is no sill, measure height to point where blind is to reach.
measure for: outside mount textured blinds
- To find width: Measure exact distance to the nearest 1/8" between the outermost points where the blind is to be placed. For optimum light control, this measurement should extend 3/4" beyond the window opening on each side (or 1 1/2" for the entire width).
- To find height: Measure exact distance to the nearest 1/8" from where top of blind will be located to top of sill. If there is no sill or if blind is to overlap window frame, measure to point blind is to reach.
NOTE: Whether you have a protruding or flush mount application is entirely dependent on the available depth of your window.
