Hiding the Roller

Reverse Roll

Reverse Roll: Shade material runs over the front of roller instead of the back. This hides the shade roller but also causes the material to be further away from the window. Also, this does not hide the clutch chain mechanism at the top.

Measuring Instructions
Materials needed for measuring
  • (Photo 1) Decide whether you want the shade mounted inside the frame of the opening or outside the opening. An inside mount can look cleaner, but you may want to order outside mount if there are obstructions, if you want more complete coverage, or if you want to cover more than one opening with a shade.
  • (Photo 2) Always use a steel measuring tape.
  • (Photo 3) Measure to the nearest 1/8”. Round DOWN, not UP, if it is 1/16th over.
  • Tell us raw measurements. Do not take your own deductions.
  • Always give width before height
  • IT IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT to take note if any of the adjoining shades meet at a 90% angle, as one or both shades may need to be cut narrower to make sure the brackets don’t conflict with one another.  We recommend that you order only one of the corner shades, and order the second one after you have installed the first one to make sure the brackets don’t impede each other.
  • And always, feel free to call us for help and email us photos of where you are installing.
