Is your window a square?
Before deciding on which mount you will use, measure your window to be sure it is square. Measure diagonally from the two top corners to the two bottom corners. If the two measurements are significantly different, the window is off-kilter and you should choose the Wall Mount.
Choose a mounting option
Mounting hardware brackets directly to the trim shows off the actual size of your window.
To bring a fuller look to your window, use this option. Mount hardware brackets 3 inches beyond and 4-6 inches above the window trim.
If you’re mounting Roman shades or want your molding to show, you’ll want to use an Inside Mount. The hardware should be attached just inside the frame.
Time To Measure
Once you have chosen the mounting option that works best for your window, it’s time to measure your windows to determine hardware length. Keep in mind that if you have chosen the Wall Mount option, you will need to add 6 inches to the length of your rods. Also, depending on what style you choose, finials can add up to 4 inches on each end of the rod, so you want to make sure there is enough clearance to allow for your finials.
The Layered Look
To create a layered window treatment, you will need hardware that can accommodate two panels. Our Double Add-On Kit comes in all the same sizes and finishes as our rods.
