Outside Mount Blinds

Do you want to install window treatments, such as honeycomb or cellular shades and blinds, only your window opening doesn’t have enough depth?

Never fear.

With outside mount blinds, you can still access the benefits of blinds while mounting them outside the window frame.

Enhance Your Home with Durable and Attractive Outside Mount Blinds

If you’re looking to mount window blinds, you must select the right types of blinds for the job. While inside mount blinds are the most common, they’re not suitable if your window opening doesn’t have the depth required for installation. In these cases, outside mount blinds offer a solution.

With outside mount blinds, you install your blinds on the wall above your window frame or directly onto the window trim. This versatility means these blinds provide options for those who have windows that sit flush against a wall.

But that isn’t the only benefit of these types of blinds.

Outside mount blinds create the illusion that your window is bigger than it actually is. This feature makes them ideal for those who love big windows because the blinds enhance your home’s aesthetic whenever they’re in the shut or semi-shut positions.

Speaking of opening and closing blinds, outside mount blinds offer similar levels of light control to inside mount blinds. In fact, outside mounting may be a better choice for those who don’t like the light gaps that often come with inside-mounted blinds.

Combine this light control with the versatility of outside mount blinds and you have the perfect choice for your home. At Factory Direct Blinds, we offer a range of these window treatments, including roller shades, faux wood blinds, and Roman shades. You can even access cordless options, which are ideal for homes that have pets or small children.

Explore our catalog today and you’re sure to find a set of outside mount blinds that are suitable for your windows.

FAQs

Should outside mount blinds cover trim?

Unlike inside mount blinds, you can install outside mount blinds on the face of the window trim. You can also install them on the wall above the window frame.

Is it better to mount blinds inside or outside?

Generally speaking, it’s better to mount blinds on the inside of a window frame. This assumes the frame and window opening offer enough depth to fit these window coverings. Outside mount blinds are best used when there is an obstruction, such as a window handle, or if the window opening is too shallow for inside mount blinds.

Can you hang blinds outside?

Hanging blinds outside your home isn’t recommended. If blinds are installed on the outside, they’re susceptible to wind and rain. Plus, they’ll make a lot of noise.

Do outside mount blinds look good?

Outside mount blinds look great as long as you measure and install them correctly. Our installation and measuring guides help you to do both, ensuring your blinds look fantastic when installed.
