Additional Information
• Roller shade sizes are based on tip-to-tip measurements.
• Roller shade fabric is 1” less than the tip-to-tip measurement on shades
produced on 1 1/4” and 1 1/2” tubes.
• Roller shade fabric is 1 1/8” to 1 1/4” less than tip-to-tip measurement on
shades produced on 2” and 3” roller. (except Motorized - 1 7/8” difference)
• When ordering an outside mount shade, determine the width you desire
the fabric to be and add 1” for the tip-to-tip measurement.
• Additional fabric is added to ordered height to allow for roller coverage and
spring tension.
Sizes exceeding fabric width are made from railroaded cloth (using width for height) therefore any
pattern will run sideways. Railroading fabric will accommodate a wider width shade but will in turn
limit the height of the shade to the fabric width minus 12” unless the fabric is seamed.
Some fabrics are available with a horizontal seam to accommodate larger size shades.

  • Wide selection of patterns and colors ranging from semi-sheer to complete blackout
  • Hem styles and matching valance styles include eight scallop designs and two fringe options
  • Standard valance is 3 1/2" high with dust cover to block outside light and protect blind. Matching fabric insert and end returns

Measuring for Roller Shades

Inside Mount Width

•    Measure the exact width (left to right) of the inside edge of the window frame in three places (top, middle and bottom).
•    Take the smallest of the three measurements to the nearest 1/8 of an inch.
•    The factory will make the correct deduction from the total width to allow for brackets and correct installation.  Roller shades have generally large deductions due to the nature of the product (roller and hardware) -PLEASE CALL FOR SPECIFIC FABRIC AND TUBE DEDUCTIONS. Fabric is usually minimally-         1 1/8" or more from ordered width on inside mount .

Inside Mount Height

•    Measure the exact height (top to bottom) from the top inside edge down to the window sill in three spots across window.
•    Take the largest of the three measurements.

Outside Mount Width

•    Measure the exact width (left to right) of the wooden or metal window frame (outer edge) OR how wide you want the product to be.
•    For Solar Shades or Roller Shades, make sure the measurement overlaps the window opening by at least 2" on each side to ensure light control and privacy.

Outside Mount Height

•    Measure the top and bottom edge of window frame/trim. If no trim, be sure you provide the height you want the shade to be from top of the headrail to bottom of the bottom rail.
•    Be sure to allow for coverage for light control and mounting hardware if mounting above window opening to wall surface. You will need 2 inches of surface area to mount above opening. Call us for further instruction if needed.
