When measuring for window shades that are to go below an open arch window there a few things you need to do. The first and most important is to determine the correct width.

When you are installing a shade under an open arch such as a vertical shade or a horizontal cellular shade you will have to use L brackets to attach the blind to the wall. Because this is the case it is important that you give us the EXACT width of the opening MINUS 1/4 of an inch. This will assure that the L brackets will fit in the opening.

When Installing mini blinds or 2" horizontal blinds the exact measurement WITHOUT any deductions taken is required as you will not need to use L brackets.

As always Blinds Chalet encourages our customers to call in with any questions and assistance needed. Some shades such as woven wood shades and Soft Sheer Horizontals are not a viable choice for this type of installation as the brackets will not work with L brackets.

Blinds Chalet has more than 25 years of experience selling and installing window shades. For information on what types of window shades, accessories, and any other window covering needs, visit www.blindschalet.com.
