Measurement and Installation

A professional installer

Anything less than a perfect fit means less than a perfect look. So when you’re ready to find the right window covering, you’ll want to make the most of your investment by hiring a professional installer. Visit your local Luxaflex® Showroom to get in touch with a professional installer you can trust.

Prefer to do it yourself?

Many of our products offer specific installation guidelines but generally speaking, we recommend you keep a few things in mind for starters:

  1. Measure each window thoroughly. This includes horizontal measurements at the top, centre and bottom, and vertical measurements along both sides and at the centre.
  2. Then take the additional and important step of measuring diagonally too. These measurements combined will reveal whether or not your window is square.
  3. If a window isn’t square, consider an outside mount, installing the window covering above your opening.
  4. If your window treatment telescopes to one side as it is raised, the window may not be level. Many shades have an adjustable bottom rail weight. It can be moved to compensate for the window frame and prevent telescoping.
