The blind is mounted inside the window opening for a clean, tailored look. When selecting the size of your blinds, enter the exact dimensions of your window opening. Do NOT enter the size of an old/existing blind. The factory will make the necessary deductions for a proper fit. Please make sure your window meets the minimum inside mount depth required to accommodate the brackets, or the flush mount depth if desired. Depth requirements can be found on the product page.
The blind is mounted on the wall or window trim outside and above the window, covering an area larger than the window opening. Outside mount is required if your window opening is not deep enough to install the blind as an inside mount or if you want to make your window appear larger than it is. When measuring your blinds make sure to adjust the size for proper overlap.

Weights are sewn into in a hem pocket at the bottom of each vane, allowing the vanes to free-hang without a stiff backing. Hem pocket is not sealed on all sides. Weights have no holes, creating a clean look.
The vane fabrics are inserted into channel panel inserts, which adds durability and helps extend the life of the vanes. The PVC backing also provides increased insulation, decreases the amount of light entering through the vanes, and provides a neutral color to the backside of the vanes. Available in white or ivory, each with a clear edge on front for the vane insert.
