    • General tips

      Use a metal measuring tape to ensure accuracy.
      Round down to the nearest 1/8".
      Measure every window, even if they appear identical.
      If you're measuring more than one window in a room, work from left to right and label every window.

      Mounting inside window frame

      Inside mounts provide a finished, built-in look, without covering the window molding. You need a minimum of 2" unobstructed mounting depth within your window frame (most product styles). If your frame isn't deep enough for the style you've chosen, use an outside mount.

      Please note that inside mounted treatments will have a light gap; if you need maximum light control and privacy, consider an outside mount.

      1. Measure the inside width as indicated below:

      Your blind or shade will be made slightly smaller than the size you specify to allow operating clearance. Do not add to the size of your product for a tighter fit. If you do, it will not fit properly inside your window.

      2. Measure the frame depth from the closed window, or any obstacle such as a window handle, crank or alarm sensor, to the edge.

      Obstacles can interfere with your treatment's operation, and you may wish to consider an outside mount.

      Mounting outside window frame

      Outside mounts can make a window appear larger. When windows are not square, or there is insufficient frame depth for inside mounting, an outside mount is recommended.

      Please note that a minimum of 2" flat surface above the window or on the window frame is required for mounting brackets (most product styles).

      1. Measure the outside width of the area you wish to cover. If space allows, we recommend adding overlap to reduce light per the chart below. This is your ordering width.

      2. Measure the height of the area you wish to cover. If space allows, we recommend adding overlap to reduce light per the chart below. This is your ordering height.

    • Inside mounted treatments are installed within your window frame, creating a finished, built-in look without concealing your molding. Inside mount is also suggested if you plan to layer another treatment, such as Drapery, a Valance or Cornice, over your blinds or shades. Inside mount is strongly recommended if your windows aren't "square".

      Outside mounted treatments are installed on the wall or molding surrounding your windows. An outside mount is often used to make a window look larger, to mask flows in a window or adjacent wall, or when there's not enough frame depth for inside mounting.

    • Multiple Shades on One Headrail: A single headrail tops two or three side-by-side blinds, which can be raised, lowered and tilted separately. This affordable upgrade gives your blinds a uniform, streamlined appearance while enhancing light control options. This lift system is highly recommended for wide windows. The gap between slats is 1/4" inches, and each shade will be equal size. Minimum width is 24" for two shades; 36" for three shades on a single headrail.

    • Standard lift system allows you to raise and lower your blind with a control cord. The control cord may be placed on the left or the right side of the blind. Cords should be kept out of reach of small children and pets for added safety.
      NEW! Easy Lift Cordless: Push the button to easily and precisely raise, lower, and position blinds without visible lift cords. Maximum width 96". Maximum height 84".

    • Wand or Cord Tilt: Our Metal Blinds come standard with cord tilts (2 hanging cords). A wand tilt is also available. Wand is approximately 2/3 the height of the blind. Wand tilt operates with a twisting motion.

    • Wand tilt operates slats via a twisting motion on the wand, which is approximately half the height of the blinds. Lift cords raise, lower + position your Metal Blinds, operating independently of your slat tilt. Select left- or right-side placement of lift cords, taking into consideration your room configuration, ease of reaching cords behind furniture, etc. 2 on 1 Headrail will have the tilt and lift cords on the outside edges of your blinds. Blinds between 12" and 17-7/8" wide will have split controls, center tilt only for widths between 6-1/2" and 11-7/8".

    • Hold Down Brackets fit into holes in the endcap of the bottom rail of your Metal Blinds to hold them in place. This is especially useful with blinds mounted on doors what will be opened and closed regularly, or on blinds that will be mounted in a windy location.

      Spacer blocks and Extension brackets are available for Outside mount blinds only. Brackets are designed for pushing the blind away from the wall for clearance. Blocks project the blind 3/8" from the mounting surface. If more clearance is needed, please select Extension brackets. A center support bracket will be provided for ordered blinds over 60" wide.
