  • Measure the exact width (left to right) of the window frame or how wide you would like the blind to be.
  • Be sure to measure wide enough to cover the entire window and provide maximum light coverage.
  • Example: If the window opening is 36” wide, it might be helpful to order 40” if the space allows. This will provide 2” coverage on each side of the window.
  • No deductions/additions will be made to the width ordered.
