*Larger valances are used for thicker materials and/or extra long shades. All outside mounted roller shades with upholstered valances will come in the larger size.

Please note: Some roller materials may have maximum widths. For shades wider than the fabric width, it may be necessary to split the area into multiple shades side by side. In this case, multiple shades under one valance may be possible. Contact us at 800.301.9720 for special requests.

Measuring for Inside Mount

Step 1: Print measurement worksheet

Step 2: Measure the inside width at the top of the window. This is your ordering width. We will make the necessary deductions (approximately 1/8").

Step 3: Measure the height at three locations—the left side, middle and right side. Record the largest of the three measurements. This is your ordering length.

Note: Roller and Solar shade fabrics will be approximately 1 1/4" narrower than your ordering width to allow for brackets. For maximum light blockage, please select outside mount.

Measuring for Outside Mount

Step 1: Print measurement worksheet

Step 2: Measure the width of the area to
be covered. For maximum light blockage, add 3" to 4" (1 1/2" to 2" per side) to your measurement. This is your ordering width, and will be the overall measurement from the outside edges of the brackets.

Step 3: Measure the height of the area to be covered. This is your ordering length.

Note: Your shade fabric will be 1 1/4" narrower than the measurement you provide to allow for brackets. If you need the fabric to cover a specific width, add 1 1/4" to your ordering width.

Note: For shades with an upholstered valance, the valance will be 1" wider than the shade measurement.
