How to Measure and Install Cellular Shades

INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSIDE MOUNT

Inside-mounted cellular shades fit inside the window casing.

  • Measuring the width: The width measurement is taken from the inside edge of the window frame at the top. Always measure to the nearest ⅛’’, and be sure to use a steel measuring tape. Your order width=Your window width-¼’’.
  • Measuring the depth: Your window needs to beΒ deep enough for an inside mount.Β For shades width narrower than 47’’, the minimum depth is 1 β…žβ€™β€™. For shades wider than 47’’ (include 47’’), the minimum depth is 2 β…žβ€™β€™.Β 
  • Measuring the height: The height measurement is taken from the window frame in three places, top left, center, and top right down to the sill. Record the tallest height up to the nearest ⅛’’. This will be the height you order.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR OUTSIDE MOUNT

Outside-mounted cellular shades hang above the window, or on the wall surrounding the window.

  • Measuring the width: Take the measurement at the top of the window frame. You’ll use that measurement and add the recommended 4 to 6 inches.Β This will ensure the window is properly covered. For more light coverage and privacy, add even more to the measurement.
  • Measuring the height: Take it from three locations, the left, center, and the right. You’ll use the tallest height and add the recommended 4 to 6 inches. This will ensure the window is properly covered.
