Measurements Matter

An excellent solution for this is to use automated window shades. These have gained immense popularity for their convenience in making adjustments. These automated shades offer a quick, easy way to safeguard your window coverings from the regular wear and tear they may encounter.

Outside or Inside Mount?

As you start to figure out the best mounting approach for your corner windows, we recommend considering window depth. Depending on the type of window coverings you choose, an inside mount is a possibility. If the window has a shallow depth, an outside mount can create a visually appealing effect. It makes it appear as if it is intentionally integrated into the house’s design.

When the window is too shallow, an outside mount can look wonderful. It looks like it’s built into the house, intentionally from the start.

If you’re interested in another option, you can combine both! By employing an inside mount on one side, including the headrail, while allowing the headrail to be positioned above the window on the other side, you can achieve a unique look in your space.
