MEASURING INSTRUCTIONS FOR NIGHTFALL ROLLER SHADES & ROLLER SHADE SUNSCREENS

INSIDE MOUNT

When to use Inside Mount:

– When a ‘cleaner’ look of the window is preferred.

– When there is nothing obstructing the operation of the blind.

– When there is enough depth to mount fascia inside (3 ½”).
(note: roller shades can be ordered without fascia)

– When some light leakage from the sides won’t be a problem
(note that the fabric of the shade will leave a ½ inch gap on each side. Therefore, depending on the width of the glass in your window frame, there might be some light leaking from the sides. If complete room darkening is required, it would be better to measure for an outside mount.)

Width: Measure the Inside Width at the top, middle and bottom of the window. Record the shortest measurement to the nearest eighth of an inch. (note: the fabric will be ½ inch narrower on each side!)
Height: Measure the Inside Length/height of the window and round up to the nearest inch.

OUTSIDE MOUNT

When to use Outside Mount:

-When room darkening is important.

-When there is not enough depth to mount fascia inside.

-When obstructions like handles or cranks will interfere with the blind.

Note: Outside mount or wall brackets provide ½” clearance to clear the window frame. If the frame protrudes more than ½”, order your roller shades with spacers (mention this in comment section for each shade that requires this).

Outside Mount on the Window Frame with Protruding Windowsill:

Width: Measure the outside width at the top of the window frame up to the nearest eighth of an inch.

Height: Measure from top of the frame to the windowsill and round up to the nearest inch.

Outside Mount on the Window Frame without Window Sill:

Width: Measure the outside width at the top of the window frame up to the nearest eighth of an inch.

Height: Measure from the top of the frame down to the bottom of the frame to and round up to the nearest inch.

Outside Mount on the Wall above the Window Frame:

Width: Measure the outside width of the window frame at the top to the nearest eighth of an inch. If you want the blind to overlap beyond the sides of the window frame or window opening (to ensure complete blackout for Night Fall Shades), add extra inches to this measurement.

Height: Mark on the wall where you wish to mount the blind above the window frame (A). Also mark on the wall to where you wish the blind to hang when fully lowered (B). Measure from A to B and round up to the nearest inch.
