How to Measure


 
 
Measure For Inside Mounting

Measuring For Inside Mount Roman Shades

Find Width:

Measure exact distance between inside surfaces of window frame at the top, middle, and bottom, and use the narrowest width. Do not make any width deductions. Factory will automatically deduct 3/8" from fabric width.

Find Height:

Measure exact distance from inside surface at top of window to sill. If you prefer shade not to touch sill, deduct 1/4". If there is no sill, measure height to point where shade is to reach.

 
Minimum Mounting Depth *
  Custom Order
Cordless Shades 1/2"
Standard Shades 5/8"
* Minimum mounting depth is the depth required, in the window frame, for the shade to be mounted inside mount.

Measure For Outside Mounting

Measuring For Outside Mount Roman Shades

Find Width:

Measure exact distance between the outermost points where the shade is to be placed. This measurement should overlap each side of window frame by at least 1-1/2". Factory makes no deduction from your shade width dimension.

Find Height:

Measure exact distance from where top of shade will be located to top of sill. If there is no sill or if shade is to overlap window frame, measure to point shade is to reach.

 
Allow Some Overlap

For outside mount applications allow the shade 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 shades.

 

Measure For Multiple Blinds per Headrail

Measuring For Inside Mount Multiple Shades on One Headrail

Overall Shade Width - Measure the window's width at the top, middle, and bottom. Order the narrowest measurement.

Left Shade Width - Measure the width that you want the left shade to cover.

Right Shade Width - Measure the width that you want the right shade to cover.

Height - Measure the window from the top to the bottom for the desired height.

Order the left shade first when placing the order.

 
Notes

There will be a 1/2" gap between the fabric on the left and right shade to allow for shades to operate independently.

The left shade width, plus the right shade width must equal the overall shade width.

Corded Top Down/Bottom Up not available.

 

Measure For Multiple Blinds per Headrail

Measuring For Outside Mount Multiple Shades on One Headrail

Overall Shade Width - Measure the desired width. For maximum privacy and window coverage, add an additional 3" to total width of window.

How to Install Custom Roman Shades


 
 

Before you begin your installation:

Read all installation instructions!

  • Make sure that you have all tools and hardware needed for installation.
  • Check the installation surface (wall, ceiling, or window frame) to ensure that you have suitable fasteners and tools for the material.
  • Double check the headrail and shade for proper width and length. If you are installing several sets of shades, be sure to match them with the appropriate window.
  • Check the parts list shipped with the product to confirm that you have the correct number of brackets.
 
 

Tools You May Need (not included):

  • Tape Measure
  • Level
  • Pencil
  • 1/4" Wrench (if using extension brackets)
  • Flat-blade or Philips Head Screwdriver
  • Hex Nutdriver (optional for mounting screws)
  • Drill with Bits (1/16" drill bit may be used to pre-drill for screws)
  • Drywall Anchors
  • Safety glasses
  • Ladder
 

Corded Models - Inside Mount


Step 1

Mark the bracket locations

  • Verify that window casing has a minimum depth of 3/4".
  • If flush-mount is desired, place the brackets 2-1/4" recessed inside the top of the window frame.
  • Place the bracket on the inside top of the window frame, 2" in from the ends. Space any remaining brackets evenly across the window frame, no more than 30" apart.
  • With a pencil, mark two drill hole locations through the top holes of the bracket.
 

Step 2

Install the brackets

  • On wood and metal surfaces, pre-drill the screw holes using the pencil marks as a guide.
  • Install bracket with surface marked “top" facing up. Secure each bracket with two screws per bracket, ensuring brackets are square with each other.

NOTE: Two mounting screws are provided per bracket.

 

Step 3

Install Valance

  • Align the holes in the valance rail with the holes in the top of the headrail.
  • Press the push fasteners fully into the holes to secure the valance in place.
 

Step 4

Install shade on brackets

  • Hook the rear lip of the headrail on the mounting bracket spring tab (valance not shown).
  • While pushing back against the bracket, rotate the front of the headrail upward to engage the top locking tab of the mounting bracket. The shade will easily snap onto the bracket.

TO REMOVE THE SHADE: While pushing back on the headrail, rotate the front of the headrail down. Never force the spring tab beyond the back of the bracket.

 

Corded Models - Outside Mount


Step 1

Mark the bracket locations

  • Measure headrail width.
  • End brackets should be approximately 2" in from each end of the headrail. Space any remaining brackets evenly across the headrail, no more than 30" apart.
  • With a pencil, mark the mounting screw locations through the rear holes of the bracket, two per bracket. Use a level to ensure bracket alignment.
 

Step 2

Install the brackets

  • Using pencil marks as a guide, start the screw holes by pre-drilling (wood and metal mounting surfaces only).
  • Hold bracket with surface marked “top" facing up. Holding bracket in place, secure with screws, two per bracket.
  • Repeat for each bracket.
  • Use a level to confirm brackets are level.

Example: Installation on drywall using drywall anchors (not included) and included screws.

NOTE: Two mounting screws are provided per bracket.

 

Step 3

Install valance

NOTE: Valance returns are self-supporting and do not require additional installation.

  • Align the holes in the valance rail with the holes in the top of the headrail.
  • Press the push fasteners fully into the holes to secure the valance in place.
 

Step 4

Install shade on brackets

  • Hook the rear lip of the headrail on the mounting bracket spring tab (valance not shown).
  • While pushing back against the bracket, rotate the front of the headrail upward to engage the top locking tab of the mounting bracket. The shade will easily snap onto the bracket.

TO REMOVE THE SHADE: While pushing back on the headrail, rotate the front of the headrail down. Never force the spring tab beyond the back of the bracket.

Recommended Cleaning Methods

Care Instructions
A brush-type vacuum attachment or feather duster should be used for cleaning. If your shade should become stained, you may clean it by dabbing the spot with a sponge dampened with lukewarm water. Avoid contact with window cleaning products as these may discolor your shade. Ultrasonic cleaning is not recommended or covered by our warranty.

 

Color Variation
Color lot variations may occur due to the process of color application. For the best color match, order all shades for a room at the same time. Pattern availability and color lot match between orders cannot be assured. Any variation in color is in accordance with industry standards.

Shades made from the stripe collections may differ slightly in the location of the vertical stripes from shade to shade. This is due to the location in the roll from which the fabric is cut for the shade. Fabrics will not be railroaded.
