Outside Mountshades are mounted on your wall or molding. Even if windows have enough frame depth for Inside Mount, you may prefer the extra room darkening and privacy Outside Mount provides.
Inside Mount shades are contained within the window frame. Our Honeycomb Shades require at least a 3/4" frame depth for Inside Mount (required depth varies with some upgrades). You may prefer an Inside Mount because it provides a finished look without covering the molding; it also allows more clearance to layer Drapery, a Valance or Cornice over shades. Before choosing Inside Mount, be sure to check windows for "squareness", as Inside Mounted shades will not operate properly or hang attractively if windows are not "square."
See Measure Guide.
Side Mount is useful when shades cannot be mounted to the top of the window frame. Side Mount Brackets for shades up to 60"w x 72"h as a No Charge Option.
