I got the "smart privacy 2 1/2" blinds" (I couldn't find them on the list to select to review, so I just selected privacy blinds) and LOVE that they are the wider slats AND that the string hole is at the back so when you open or close the slats, there
are no visible holes or light coming through the holes! I was hesitant to do the privacy NO HOLE blinds because I have little kids that may pull the slats out if they aren't somehow connected. I also LOVE the tilt STRING instead of the wand! So much faster
and less chance of the mechanism going bad as the wands often do, its faster to tilt them open or closed, AND you don't have to worry about the wand breaking off or getting lost (or becoming "swords" or "lightsabers" in my imaginative childrens' minds :) They
seem well made, but mine are big (some 70" x 58") so I am hesitant to raise and lower the blinds too much for fear of breaking the string. They are harder to raise and lower than my smaller blinds from a different company, but this is probably due to their
size and they would probably be like that regardless of who made them. I received the blinds in a timely manner and when there was a problem with the valances, they were quick to fix the problem. A GREAT deal for the huge sizes I needed and I ordered them
when they had one of their 30% off buy 3 get one free specials!

Measuring Instructions For

Inside Mount
- 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.
  • Write down that size making sure that it is the first number of the measurement. This is the width you will order.
  • *production department will deduct 1/4 inch of width on each side of blind, total of 1/2 inch on inside mounted blinds to allow for mounting brackets.

Height:
  • Measure the exact height (top to bottom) from the top inside edge down to the window sill in three places.
  • Take the largest of the three measurements.
  • Write down that size making sure that it is the second number of the measurement. This is the height you will order.

Measuring Instructions For

Outside Mount
- Outside Mount

Width:
  • Measure the exact width (left to right) of the wooden or metal window frame or how wide you would like the blind to be.
  • Make sure to measure wide enough as to cover the entire window and provide maximum light gap coverage. Example: If the window opening is 36", it might be helpful to order 40". This will provide 2" coverage on each side of the window.
  • There is no rule on the width of blinds other than to make sure that it is wide enough to cover the opening.
  • Keep in mind that the valance will be about 2" wider than width ordered.
  • Write down that size making sure that it is the first number of the measurement. This is the width you will order.

Height:
  • Measure the height you would like the blind to be by measuring top to bottom.
  • We recommend adding about 3 or 4 inches to this number to insure maximum light gap coverage and to cover the window completely.
  • Please be sure to know that the height measurement will always include the headrail. Example: if the height ordered is 50" this will be the height including the headrail (from the very top of the headrail to the bottom rail).
  • You will want to mount the headrail above the window frame. Please make a note that some windows have trim that might interfere with mounting so it's important to measure above the trim if this is the case.
  • Headrail is 2.25" in height.
  • *width and length measurements may vary +/- 1/8"
