How to Measure and Install Roller Shades

INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSIDE MOUNT ROLLER SHADES

Inside-mounted fit inside the window casing. Please note Allesin only offer standard window sizes blinds which cannot fit special-shaped windows.

  • Measuring the width: The width measurement of roller shades 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 of roller shades 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.

Please note: The fabric width will be slightly narrower than the headrail width (roughly a ½’’ gap on each side).Β The gap is required in order for the shades to operate properly. Most customers are OK with this, but if you want to block more light and have more privacy, consider an outside mount with extra width, or other products such as blackout cellular shades.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR OUTSIDE MOUNT ROLLER SHADES

Outside-mounted roller 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, left, center, and right. You’ll use the tallest height and add the recommended 4 to 6 inches. This will ensure the window is properly covered.

Please note that we only make your product to the dimensions you specify, with no additions made.
