When measuring your windows and considering which mounting option to choose, consider the following:

Does your window have decorative trim surrounding it, or no trim at all?

Do you wish to conceal the trim around your window or allow it to show when the shade is lowered?

Is there a spot on your trim that will accept the magnetic tape?

How much space is there above the window for stacking?

Are there any light switches or heat vents that could interfere with the shade operation?

If there are multiple windows in a room, how can the shades be mounted to create a consistent appearance from window to window?

Determine the width of the shade for an outside mount by deciding how far outside the casing you want the shade to be and measure accordingly. If you are considering an outside mount, choose one of the following options:

1. Shade extends to the outer edges of the trim, covering trim completely when closed. Magnetic tape is placed on the outer edges of the trim.

2. Shade stacks beyond door opening, exposing all of the window glass when opened. A mounting board is added to the stationary side of the shade for attaching the magnetic tape.
