The shade 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 shade 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.
Operates the shade smoothly and evenly using a beaded loop cord. Rotating the loop cord allows you to position the shade fabric so that the sheer stripes align for an open, sheer effect, or you can align the solid fabric stripes for a closed, private effect. You can also fully raise the shade for a clear view. Utilizes a clutch system for reliable performance. The looped cord length is approximately 3/4 of the ordered height of the shade and it stays at the same length regardless of the position of the shade. Eliminates the traditional dangling cord, adding child safety and a neater appearance. Includes a tension device on the bottom of the loop cord that must be mounted for child-safety and operation of the shade. Make sure that you have an area to mount the tension device on the side with the cord loop.
