Smith+Noble products are custom made to your exact measurements; Inside mounted products will have a deduction taken of approximately 1/4" to ensure a proper fit inside your window frame. Enter your measurement in inches. Outside mounted products should be ordered at the exact width of the area you wish to cover.
When mounting outside your window frame we recommend adding 3" to the total width (1 1/2" each side) and 3 1/2" to the height (2" at the top and 1 1/2" below the window sill). The overlap is recommended to allow appropriate coverage and avoid any light gaps. All farbic shade styles are available up to 108" in height and 120" wide.
Outside Mounted blinds or shades are mounted on your wall or molding (rather than within the confines of your window frame). Outside Mount is often used when windows are not "square"; to make a window appear larger; to hide a less-than-attractive window; or when there is not sufficient frame depth for Inside Mounting.
Inside Mounted blinds or shades are contained within your window frame. You may prefer an Inside Mount because it provides a finished, built-in look without covering your window molding. Inside Mount is also suggested if you plan to layer Drapery, a Valance or Cornice over your treatment.
Upended Headrail works great for french doors or windows with limited mounting surface. The upended headrail feature makes the headrail of your shade smaller to be able to mount into an area that has 1 1/4" of flat mounting space. This is also perfect when mouting shades on french doors as the projection of the shade will only be 1 1/4" versus the normal 1 3/4" projection for standard shades. The upended headrail is not available with Loop Control, Cordless, 2 on 1 Headrail or Top Down Bottom Up.

Loop Control Loop Control replaces traditional dangling lift cords - which can pose a danger of entanglement for small children and pets - with an innovative closed loop mechanism that lets you easily and evenly raise, lower and precisely position your shades, while giving your windows a sleek, uncluttered look.
Top Down Bottom Up This lift system allows you to raise your shades from the bottom (how a standard shade operates) or lower them from the top. Top Down is a great feature when you want to let in the natrual light but keep your privcay by leaving the bottom of the shade closed. Top Down Bottom Up is available on Flat Roman, Classic Roman and Reverse Classic shades.
Cordless Lift Cordless lift system allows you to raise your shade without having to use any cord mechanism at all. Shades are easily raised by touching the clear lift handle that is placed along the bottom of the shade. Cordless lift is kid and pet friendly by eliminating the lift cords from your shade. Cordless lift is available on Flat Roman, Classic Roman and Reverse Classic shades.

Your shades come standard with cotton/polyester Privacy Lining which offers both insulation and substantial privacy. For enhanced insulation, privacy + light control select one our three lining upgrades: Cotton/poly Thermal Lining insulates more than Privacy Lining, is UV-resistant and softens bright light entering your room for a beautiful, filtered effect.
Our 3-ply Blackout Lining is more insulating and noise reducing than Thermal, plus it blocks nearly 100% of light (tiny light spots may appear where shade and lining are sewn together). It is also more substantial than Privacy Lining, giving shades more body.
Our 100% Eco Cotton Lining comes from sustainable resources and is finished with no bleach, dyes or chemicals. All Linings except Eco Cotton present a White streetside appearance; Eco Cotton streetside appearance is Natural.
Note: We recommend Lining for 100% linen materials in order to prolong the life of the fabric, protecting your treatment from sunlight. Lining also helps prevent UV ray damage of flooring and interior furnishings. Fabrics that are 100% silk require lining.
