  • Great option when there is not enough depth for an inside mount.
  • Mounted to the wall, ceiling or molding surface surrounding the window.
  • Often used to make the window appear larger or to hide a less attractive window or door.
  • No minimum depth requirement.
  • Minimum flat surface (on wall, ceiling or frame) required for secure outside mount: 1 1/2" without cassette valance, 2" with cassette valance.

Measuring for Inside Mount

STEP 1: Measure the interior width of the window opening where you plan on mounting the shade in three separate locations from the bottom, middle, and top. Take the smallest of these three measurements and this is the measurement you will use when placing your order with Blindster. Note that the factory will make slight deductions of around 1/8" when you place your order.

STEP 2: Measure the height at 3 locations - the left side, middle and right side. Record the largest of the 3 measurements. This is your ordering height.

NOTE: Roller shade fabrics will be approximately 1-1/2" inches narrower than your ordering width to allow for brackets. If concerned over resulting light gap please select outside mount.

Measuring for Outside Mount

STEP 1: Measure the full width of the area you wish to cover with your exterior solar shades. If space allows on your walls, add an extra 1" to 1 1/2" to each side of your measurement to reduce the amount of light leakage from the sides of the shade. Use this measurement plus any additions when you place your order with Blindster.

STEP 2: Measure the height of the area you wish to cover. This is your ordering height. Be sure to take into account the flat mounting surface needed (see above) when measuring the area you want to cover with your shade. The factory will make your shade (including the roller at the top or the cassette valance, if ordered) to the height ordered. Generally 3" - 4" added to the height of your opening (including molding or framework you wish to cover) will allow you room to mount above the window frame.

NOTE: Your shade material will be made 1-1/2 inches narrower than the measurement you provide to allow for brackets. If you need your shade to cover a specific width (e.g. for mounting a shade on a door) add 1-1/2 inches to your ordered width for the desire fabric width.
