Inside Mount shades are contained within your window frame. You may prefer an Inside Mount as it provides a finished look without covering your molding; also allows more clearance to layer Drapery, or Valance over shades. Be sure to check your windows for "squareness", since Inside Mounted shades will not operate properly if windows are not "square."
Outside Mount shades are mounted on your wall or molding. Even if your windows have enough frame depth 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. Please note that to accommodate the roller mechanism, your finished shade fabric will be 1-5/16" to 1-5/8" narrower than you specify on your order, causing a light gap with Inside Mount. If you require maximum light control and privacy, we recommend Outside Mount.
Side Mount is useful when shades cannot be mounted to the top of the window frame.
Loop Control allows you to raise your shade smoothly with little effort. This feature allows for even placement of your shade when it is partially raised. Cord loop length depends on the height of your shade; standard length is approximately 2/3 the height of the shade or you may choose a longer or shorter length depending on your specific needs. Loop control cords are available in larger set sizes up to 180”.
The Cassette System features the easy operation of the Loop Control, plus a headrail covering the roller and mechanism.
