What is the difference between inside and outside mount?
The difference between inside and outside mount is way in which the blind or shade is hung. Inside mount is attaching the blind within the window sill so that the blinds or shades would be flush with the wall. Outside mount is when a blind or shade hangs outside the window sill and would extend beyond the wall or door.
Is there a minimum window sill depth for an inside mount?
Yes there is. Under the specifications for each product we list the minimum depth for an inside mount blind.
