You must first decide what type of shades you want, whether bamboo or vertical Venetian.

You must then decide where the shades will be placed. They can be placed outside of the window frame for a look that is similar to curtains or inside for a look that is more modern and clean.

You must next determine how much coverage you want. When you hang the shades inside the window frame, the coverage will be inside. You will have more leeway if you choose an outside shade. Be sure you take into consideration how light hits each window.

Next, use a tape measure to measure the window.

If you plan to set the shade inside of the frame, measure from top to bottom and left to right. Be sure to note the depth of your window so that you are certain that it will accommodate the shade you purchase.

If you plan to hang the shade outside of the window, you will need to measure from the point where you will hang the shade to the point where you want the shade to drop. Also measure from side to side taking into account how far beyond the window frame you would like the shade to reach. Remember, you will need at least two inches above the window for mounting brackets.

Basic shades come in a variety of standard window sizes. Some hardware stores will also cut Venetian style shades to order for a small fee.

If you are ordering custom made shades, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for measuring. Some different products have different specifications for measurements.

To properly measure for inside mount blinds, be sure you measure the window in three different places and use the most narrow measurement. Not all windows are perfectly square.
