Inside Mount Roller Shade

The battle between choosing to mount your blinds inside or out is a struggle for most home or business owners. This should act as a strong tool to help you decide. And if you have further questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We’ve got you.

Outside Mount Blinds

Outside mount blinds are such that they are mounted on, yep, you guessed it, outside. Since outside window blinds do not have to fit within any parameters, they provide more flexibility when choosing window treatments for your home. They can also make a space seem larger by altering the appearance of the windows, making them look larger. And ceilings seem higher. With the flexibility to place the treatments anywhere around the outside of the frame, you can create the illusion you desire. Not to mention that outside mount shades allow you to further manipulate the amount of light that is let in, by providing more coverage of both light and UV rays. Outside mounts blinds also function as a valuable option if you’re a little fuzzy on the exact measurements. Since they don’t require such accurate sizing information, there’s no need to fret over the small stuff. There are lots of other times when you might find outside window cover valuable. If you have to cover a door as an example, or should you desire to hide the chipped corners of a window frame that you’d like to hide. They are also a great solution for those with shallow windowsills.

Inside Mount Window Shades and Blinds

Inside mounts also matter. A popular choice for many reasons, inside mount roller shades are often selected for their clean, neat and minimalistic look. The way that the shades sit inside the frame can give the appearance of a more “finished” look. They also take up less space which makes them idea when dealing with space constrictions. While outside mount frames could make a window look larger, if your space is tight, inside is that way to go. Then there is always the matter of drapes. If you plan to layer window treatments, having your shades tucked into the frame is probably the best way for you to go. Similarly, for those interested in the extra detailed, inside mounts are best for showing off those fancy window frames that you decided to spring for and want everyone to see. Go ahead, show it off.
