LEVOLOR stock blinds and shades can be custom cut in store by an associate, so you can get a better fit, light control and privacy.
Aluminum Blinds, also called mini-blinds, have a century old legacy at LEVOLOR. As the original mini blind manufacturer, LEVOLOR offers a durable product with easy to clean slats. Hidden route holes makes this product a great choice for light control.
Measure exact distance to the nearest 1/8" between inside surfaces of window frame at the top, middle, and bottom, and use the narrowest width. Do not make any width deductions. For custom blinds, the factory will automatically make appropriate deductions; for Stock blinds, a 1/2" deduction will be taken on the entire blind.
Measure exact distance to the nearest 1/8" from inside surface at top of window to sill at the left, middle and right and use the longest height. If you prefer blind not to touch sill, deduct 1/4". If there is no sill, measure height to the point where the shade reaches.
Measure exact distance to the nearest 1/8" between the outermost points where the blind is to be placed. For optimal light control, this measurement should extend 3/4" beyond the window opening on each side (or 1-1/2" for the entire width).
Measure exact distance to the nearest 1/8" from where top of the blind will be located to the top of sill. If there is no sill or if blind is to overlap window frame, measure to the point the shade reaches.
|Allow Some Overlap|
|For outside mount applications allow the blind to overlap 1-1/2" to 3" on the sides, top and bottom of the window.
You must add the overlap to your measurement; LEVOLOR does not add width or height for overlap on Outside Mounted blinds.
IMPORTANT: If bound, do not remove binding until the blinds are installed in the window.
