You know when we were installing ours we had to be careful not to put them up backwards. So, I would say they are finished the same on the outside as the inside.

Yes they do, my husband installed these and it was a little time consuming. We just put them in every room in our house and LOVE them! They are so beautiful! You need a screw driver mainly but my husband punch pilot holes first to make the screws go in a little easier. So, if you do that you will need a hole punch and a hammer.

I wondered the same thing when I first ordered these! The magnets are not for hanging, but they are the clever way of raising and lowering the shade at a few intervals. The hardware is included to hang the shade. You will screw it into the wall or inside the frame of the window.

Yes, the hardware is included. You are going to need a couple of inches depth inside the window to hang these, or else measure to hang them outside the frame of the window so that it would cover the entire window frame.

I mounted mine to the wall above the window using the enclosed hardware. I wanted to give the illusion of a larger window. So yes, you could.

answer 3
Yes, the depth of our windows weren't deep enough to hang them on the inside of the frame and so we ordered them to extend out to each side of the window frame and they look beautiful. The instructions suggest to measure 2" above the frame if you are installing them on the outside of the window(not sure why). We did that on all of ours except for one window and due to it being above the kitchen sink we couldn't do that. We hung it 1" above the frame and have seen no problem with doing that.

No, if the window is 33" order 33" blinds. They are pretty exact in measurements even including the hardware that you slide the blinds into for hanging.

answer 1
The shades run a 1/2" narrower in the width than the stated size.
You already are to narrow on the width because the shades will actually be 26 1/2" wide meaning you won't have enough shade width to cover your wider window with that size. I would suggest if possible to order a shade that is bigger than what you have and do an outside mount instead.

answer 2
I ordered the exact size for the space I was wanting them to fill and they were perfect. So, I wouldn't order any smaller or bigger. Just be sure you measure exactly where you want them to go and they should fit perfectly. The hardware fits flush up against the blinds so you don't need to do anything extra for the hardware even.

run a dust cloth over them once a week, they''ll stay clean for years a damp cloth can take surface dirt off but so far we haven't needed to do that, just dust them.
