Are Bali blinds good?
Great shades for the price. They have a very clean look with no hanging cords and I was able to mount 3 of them side by side with almost no gap in between. You can not see though them for privacy but they still let light though during the day. Great shades for the price.
Is it better to mount blinds inside or outside?
If you’re installing blackout window treatments to block unwanted light, then you should use outside mount blinds. Mounting blinds outside the window frame will give you more light coverage than blinds that hang from the inside.
How much space do you need on each side of blinds?
Blinds.com recommends at least 1.5″ of overlap on each side of the window for blinds and shades, and 2″ of overlap on each side for solar or roller shades and vertical blinds. The extra width provides more privacy and light blockage. As always, record your measurements down to the nearest 1/8 inch.
What is a standard size window?

How do you measure your bra size at home?
While braless or wearing a non-padded bra, use a measuring tape to measure around your torso directly under your bust, where a bra band would sit. The tape should be level and very snug. Round to the nearest whole number. If the number is even, add four inches.
How wide can a roller shade be?
Roller and Solar shade maximum sizes vary from 80 to 120” in width and about 100-144” in height (depending on fabrics and options chosen).
What size blinds do I need for a 35 inch window?
The actual width of the 35 ” blinds are 34.5″ (half inch narrower) to comfortably fit inside a 35 ” opening. So if your frame is exactly 34.5 inches, I would go with the 35 ” blinds.
Should blinds rest on window sill?
In most cases blinds look and work the best when they rest on the window sill. No one is ever going to notice extra 1/2″ of length and this keeps them from blowing in a slight breeze. If you prefer for the blinds not to touch the windowsill, you should deduct 1/4″.
