Measuring The Size You Want Your Blinds To Be, Not the Size Of The Window Opening. When you order inside mount window coverings from Blinds.com, we always ask for the EXACT size of the window opening, edge to edge.
How much longer than your window should your blinds be?
Measure both the width of the window and the height of the window. Consider adding an extra 3 inches to the width and height for optimum light control and privacy. Extending the blinds outside the window will also provide the space needed for the mounts and help the window appear larger than it actually is.
How much space should be between blinds and walls?
Measure above the window first to make sure you have at least 2″ of flat space on the molding or wall. Next, measure the width you want covered. Blinds.com recommends at least 1.5″ of overlap on each side of the window for blinds and shades, and 2″ of overlap on each side for solar or roller shades and vertical blinds.

How far from the floor should vertical blinds hang?
We recommend adding between 3” to 6” to your width measurement. Also add 2 ½” to your height measurement to allow enough room for the mounting brackets above the opening. Our suggested floor clearance is ½” to 1”.
