Measuring is guaranteed an easy job when use a professionally trained blind installer. How to Measure At Your Own?

Inside or Outside Mount?

The very first decision that you need to take into consideration before you measure your windows is whether you want to use the blind on the inside or outside of the window frame.

Inside mount window blinds provide a clean and attractive look. When we talk about the inside mount, the headrail will sit back in the window casing. It will help you to know the actual size of the window and also allows your window molding to be quite visible. In case if you want your blind to fit flush with the molding, it is good for you to make sure that your window has enough depth to accommodate the width of the headrail.

Outside mount window blinds provide the illusion of a longer and wider window and it is very useful when it comes to hiding an unattractive window. While considering this window blind alternative, you need to mount a blind either on the window molding itself or above and beyond it. This option always comes up with greater privacy and light control. It may be your only preferred choice if the window is not deep enough to contain at least the blind mounting brackets.

Note: If your window frame depth is not deep enough for a "flush mount", then it is wise for you not to go with a cornice style valance. If you are quite eager to get returns on your valance in order to cover the visible portion of the headrail, don't hesitate, please call us and speak to one of our customer care representatives prior to ordering.
