How to Measure – when measuring your windows, be sure you use a metal tape measure. There are two basic mounting methods for your window treatments – inside mount and outside mount.

How to Measure for Outside Mount

How to Measure Outside Mounted Blinds · Shades

  • Outside mounted window treatments are positioned and mounted above the window casing in most instances.
  • When measuring for outside mounted window coverings, make sure to measure where your blinds will be mounted and positioned.
  • Bring your rough measurements into Windows Dressed Up showroom at 38th on Tennyson St of the desired width and length to start getting an estimate today.

How to Measure for an Inside Mount

How to Measure Inside Mounted Blinds · Shades

  • Inside mounted window blinds require more precise measurements. The length / height measurements should be taken from the left, middle, and right sides between the window jamb. Mark down the longest measurement.  Inside treatment hardware is mounted directly to the inside of the window jamb.
  • When measuring the inside width of your blinds make sure to measure at the top, middle and bottom opening of the window jamb. Mark down the shortest measurement.
  • Also, be sure to measure the inside depth of the window, as this will help determine if you can have an inside mount.

You do not need to concern yourself with having exact measurements for all of your windows, just relatively close so that we can come up with an estimate – Windows Dressed Up will always measure every window before placing your order.

Why should I consider Custom Window Treatments?

You have a choice of what you buy and where you buy it. If your window treatment is “off the shelf”, your choices are limited. Whether you are looking at drapes, blinds, shutters or shades, what more do you get when you order custom-made instead of a big box treatment?

You will get exactly what you want • Precise fit looks better, insulates better • Choice of right or left pull cord or cordless system • Motorized • Superior lifting systems • Huge selection of fabric styles & colors to match your home decor • Lined drapes or curtains for light-control & insulation • Discuss your project and get ideas with a Certified Interior Designer • Measuring & installation services available
