INSIDE WIDTH MEASUREMENT

To accurately determine the width, measure the inside of your window frame at the top, where the roller shade will be fitted. Use a tape measure for this task. This measurement will provide the necessary width for your smart roller shade.

PLEASE NOTE

The material of the roller shade is typically around 4.5 cm or 1.77 inches narrower than the total outside measurement of the brackets (which is the measurement you specify during the order process).

When ordering an inside-mounted roller shade, simply provide your exact window width as explained. Our production will adjust it by subtracting 0.5 cm for a perfect fit.

 

The picture shows the bracket dimensions.

 

MEASURING THE DROP/HEIGHT

Please note that the drop, or the height, of the shade ranges from 185 cm to 285 cm, depending on the type of fabric you select. However, you can always adjust the top and bottom endpoints to suit your preference.

To find the height or drop you need, measure inside your window frame from top to bottom.

Based on your measurement, select a drop that will adequately cover your window. The available heights for the roller shades are 185 cm, 225 cm, and 285 cm.

PLEASE NOTE

Not all fabrics are available in 225 cm and 285 cm heights/drops. The simplest method to find the right height/drop is to use the filter guide on our homepage.

 

HOW TO MEASURE FOR OUTSIDE MOUNT SMART ROLLER SHADES

Outside mount roller shades can be installed on the window molding, the wall above your window, or even on the ceiling.

WIDTH MEASUREMENT

The material of the roller shade is typically around 4.5 cm or 1.77 inches narrower than the total outside measurement of the brackets (which is the measurement you specify during the order process).

IMPORTANT NOTE

Select a width that allows the fabric to cover your window opening as much as you desire.

Additionally, ensure there's ample flat surface available for installing the brackets. Refer to the picture below for the bracket's dimensions.

MEASURING THE DROP/HEIGHT

Start from the top where you plan to mount your shades and measure the height or drop, extending about 10 cm past your lowest point. This ensures the shades completely cover your window opening and the roller shade tube will still be covered in fabric.

Choose a drop size that suits your measurement. The available options are 185 cm, 225 cm, and 285 cm.

PLEASE NOTE

Not all fabrics are available in the 225 cm and 285 cm height/drop sizes. The quickest way to find the right drop size is by using our handy filter guide on the homepage.
