General tipsDimensions What's this
Use a metal measuring tape to ensure accuracy.Mounting inside window frame
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.

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.
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).Download complete measure guide.
Outside Mounted blinds or shades are mounted on your wall or molding (rather than within the confines of your window frame). Outside Mount is often used when windows are not "square"; to make a window appear larger; to hide a less-than-attractive window; or when there is not sufficient frame depth for Inside Mounting.
Inside Mounted blinds or shades are contained within your window frame. You may prefer an Inside Mount because it provides a finished, built-in look without covering your window molding. Inside Mount is also suggested if you plan to layer Drapery, a Valance or Cornice over your treatment.
Slim Headrail Requires less depth to mount shades flush with window frame. Perfect for French doors and windows with shallow frames. Slim Headrail has a projection of 1 1/4" so if you are limited on window depth this is a great solution. Slim Headrail is not available with Loop Control, Cordless or Top Down/Bottom Up lift systems.
Standard Headrail requires a minimum depth of 1 5/8" to be mounted within your window frame. For a flush mount you need 1 3/4" of flat surface to mount your shade.
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. This upgrade is also recommended for large windows and/or heavier materials. When you order 2 on 1 headrail with fabric shades your overall width comes split equally in half.
- Order Type
Loop Control Loop Control replaces traditional dangling lift cords - which can pose a danger of entanglement for small children and pets - with an innovative closed loop mechanism that lets you easily and evenly raise, lower and precisely position your shades, while giving your windows a sleek, uncluttered look.
Top Down Bottom Up This lift system allows you to raise your shades from the bottom (how a standard shade operates) or lower them from the top. Top Down is a great feature when you want to let in the natrual light but keep your privcay by leaving the bottom of the shade closed. Top Down Bottom Up is available on Flat Roman, Classic Roman and Reverse Classic shades.
Cordless Lift Cordless lift system allows you to raise your shade without having to use any cord mechanism at all. Shades are easily raised by using a wooden tassel that is placed in the center of the back of the shade above the hem. Cordless lift is kid and pet friendly by eliminating the lift cords from your shade. Cordless lift is available on Flat Roman, Classic Roman and Reverse Classic shades.

Order the remote on the first shade. Select Motivia Remote without remote control for up to 4 more shades. If you want additional remotes, simply order them on the individual shades.
Battery Pack Wire The 10" wire will have the battery pack clipped to the headrail of the shade. The 48" battery wire allows you to mount the battery wand lower in the window, to make changing batteries easier. Perfect for very tall windows, or for situations where it's otherwise awkward to get to the top of the shade. You may mount the wand in the window frame as much as 4 feet below the top of the shade with this option.
Motivia Motorization Channel Each channel on our 5-channel Motivia remote controls an individual shade, or a group of shades. Simply select the channel you'd like to assign your shade to, and we'll pre-program the remote accordingly. To have a group of shades work from the same channel, select the same channel number while customizing your additional shades.
If you change your mind later, it's easy to re-assign channels. Simple instructions will arrive with your shade.
Personalize your shades with one of our solid or patterned ribbons. Inset Banding- ribbon is placed 2" from the edge, along both sides and the bottom. Edge Banding - ribbon is placed along both side edges and the bottom, framing your shade.

Fabric Shades ordered with Cordless Lift and as outside mount will come standard with a valance and side returns. The side return will cover the headrail sides and be fabric wrapped to provide a seamless look. When ordering inside mounted shades you can choose to have no valance.
Love your shades even more with an array of linings, which extend the life of your shade. Linings protect against fading; improve energy insulation, light control and privacy; and add extra body to fabrics. All Linings present a white streetside appearance.
Privacy Lining is a 70% polyester/30% cotton blend, semi-opaque with a soft hand and slight sheen. Privacy lining comes standard on your fabric shade for all non-sheer fabrics.
Blackout Lining is a 70% polyester/30% cotton blend, 3-ply lining with an acrylic backing. Blackout lining adds stiffness to your shade, is opaque and will require manual adjustments to smooth fold and pleats. Blackout lining is available in White or Ivory. Please note there may be light spots where fabric and lining are sewn together.
Insulation Lining provides a white sateen on the outside to improve streetside appearance, the flannel on the inside of the lining adds more insulation. The two layers in one lining make your shades easier to dress and add heft to lighter-weight fabrics. Insulation lining is available in white or ivory.
Note: We recommend Lining for 100% linen materials in order to prolong the life of the fabric, protecting your treatment from sunlight. Lining also helps prevent UV ray damage of flooring and interior furnishings. Fabrics that are 100% silk require lining.
Extension Brackets project your shades away from the mounting surface, allowing them to clear obstacles such as door handles, window operating cranks and molding. Extension Brackets add 1" to your shade's clearance. Extension brackets may only be used for outside mount shade installations, and may not be combined with Loop Control upgrade.
