Mounting Multiple Blinds Side by Side
Q:Some of our windows are triple wide (fixed panel in the middle, casements on each side). I have read that it's a good idea to hang all 3 blinds on one rail so the slats will line up rather than hanging each blind from it's own rail. Is this true that they won't line up properly if they are on their own rail?
A:When mounting more than one window blind side by side, although they will be close, the slats are not guaranteed to align between each of the blinds. If you are concerned about the slats of each blind being at the same height from one blind to the next you will need to order them as either a 2 on 1 headrail or a 3 on 1 headrail. When the blinds are manufactured as multiple blinds on the same headrail care is taken to ensure each of the blind slats align with each window blind.
Multiple headrail blinds are designed for larger windows, making them easier to raise than one large single blind. Because separate blinds are lighter than one big blind, the mechanisms and lift cord also last longer.
To mount 2 or 3 blinds side by side in the same window frame, they are mounted by butting up the brackets against each other and mounting the center brackets up into the top of the window frame. The brackets come so they can mount any direction. A common valance can cover each of the headrails and the brackets. If you let us know at the time you place your order we can provide a common valance at no additional charge on most of our wood blinds and faux wood blinds.
