Inside Mount blinds or shades are contained within your window frame. Our Natural Woven Shades require at least a 1 1/2" frame depth for Inside Mount. You may prefer Inside Mount because it provides a finished, built-in look without covering your molding. Inside Mount also allows more clearance if you plan to layer Drapery, a Valance or Cornice over your shades. Before choosing Inside Mount, be sure to check your windows for "squareness", since Inside Mounted shades will not operate properly or hang attractively if windows are not "square." Click Measure Guide for details.
Outside Mount blinds or shades are mounted on your wall or molding (rather than within the confines of your window frame). Even if your windows have enough frame depth (1 1/2") for Inside Mount, you may prefer the extra room darkening and privacy Outside Mount provides, since greater window coverage reduces light leak at shade edges.
Upended Headrail Requires less depth to mount shades flush with window frame. Perfect for French doors and windows with shallow frames. Flat Fold shade style not available as Outside mount.
Selected Edge Binding
The light + airy nature of many of our woven shade materials may make lining desirable, especially for nighttime privacy.
(Shown Left) Unlined, Natural Wovens allow light to filter through
Our Privacy Lining enhances the insulation value of your shades. Both Privacy + Blackout Linings are available in off-white or khaki colors to complement your chosen shade material; off-white colors may vary slightly depending upon woven material selected. For nurseries, bedrooms, media rooms and anywhere complete light blocking is desirable, select Blackout Lining. All Blackout Linings have a white streetside appearance. Blackout lining is not available with material Kaza/Stone 12125

2 on 1 Headrail Integrating two separate, independently operating shades on a single valance and headrail can make side-by-side windows look like a single unit, while providing more light control and flexibility in operating your shades, since each has its own lift cord. 2 on 1 is also recommended for large windows and/or heavier woven materials.
Specify the left and right width for each side. Total width of the left and right blind must equal the overall width. 2-on-1 Headrail is required for shades greater than 96" wide.

Loop Control: Enables you to evenly raise, lower and precisely position shades with a continuous loop secured by a cord guide. Once properly installed, this cord guide eliminates dangling lift cords for added child and pet safety.
Top Down/Bottom Up (Flat Fold style): Maintain your privacy while you let in sunshine by lowering shades from the top, or raise them in traditional fashion from the bottom. Includes lift cords on both left and right sides of shade for added convenience and operating ease.
NOTE: Top Down/Bottom Up upgrade is not available in combination with Loop Control or 2 on 1 Headrail upgrades.
