  • Instructions for Outside Mounted Roller Shades

      Because an outside mount covers the entire window opening and frame, there are additions you will need to make to order the right size. We will custom make your product to the dimensions you give us when ordering, and we will not make any additions for you.

    Flat surface requirements

    • First decide where you want to mount the shade outside of the window frame. Make sure you have a minimum of 2 ½” of flat space. To find the product’s specific mounting requirements, refer to the information in the “Product Info” tab on whatever product you’re ordering.

    Measure the width
    • Measure the exact width (left to right) of the wooden or metal window frame or how wide you would like the blind or shade to be.
    • Make sure to measure wide enough as to cover the entire window and provide maximum light gap coverage. There is no rule on the width of blinds other than to make sure that it is wide enough to cover the opening.
    • Write down that size making sure that it is the first number of the measurement. This is the width you will order.
