Outside Mount Roman Shades

Does your living room need more light? Or do your inside walls seem kind of dull and empty? You can solve these dilemmas with outside-mounted Roman shades. These elegant window treatments come in various styles and fabrics that'll certainly upgrade the overall look of your room.

Modern Roman shades are typically made as vertical blinds. However, these don't provide the light-filtering benefits of horizontal blinds, which include today's outside-mount Roman shades. They cover the whole window box and prevent any rays of sunshine from entering your room. But when you open them, more light seeps into your room than it does with inside mount shades.

You can place them higher to create a cozier interior. That also makes your windows appear larger and your ceiling taller than it actually is. Pair these advantages with the right Roman shades fabric, and you'll turn your room into a spacious and stunning living area.

Another benefit of outside mount shades is combining them with inside mount shades and creating a layered look. The soft folds of Roman shades look amazing with inside mount mini blinds or faux wood blinds.

Outside mount Roman shades also comes as cordless blinds that keep your children and pets safe. You won't have to worry about them getting tangled in the cords and potentially hurting themselves. 

Visit Factory Direct Blinds for the most comprehensive selection of blinds for windows, including custom Roman shades, if you're unhappy with your current shade arrangement.

To install your outside mount Roman shades, you'll have to take several measurements. For starters, ensure that there's enough space for an outside mount by measuring from the top of your window frame to the ceiling. There should be at least two inches of space. 

Measure how much window coverage you want at the window's top, bottom, and middle. The recommendation is three-quarters of an inch on each side.

Finally, determine where you'll mount the headrail and whether there are any obstacles that could prevent proper window functioning.

Can roman shades be outside mounted?

How to hang outside mount roman shades?

Hanging Roman shades outside-mount style means you'll have to attach them to the mounting brackets that are outside the window frame, on the wall, or trim above the window.
