Mounting Options 

Inside or Outside Mount? What’s the difference?

If you’re having trouble deciding between the two, we’ve got a simple explanation that will help you better determine which window treatment mounting option is right for you!

Outside Mount

The outside mount is the most common mounting option for drapery. The decorative hardware is attached to the outside of the window frame and you get to decide exactly how much of the curtain rod you want to be visible. 3 Day Blinds offers a variety of different decorative hardware options! You’ll enjoy choosing between Custom Wrought Iron, Adjustable Metal, and Custom Wood. Your design consultant will help you decide how exactly you want to hang your window treatments.

Inside Mount

The inside mount is ideal for Cafe curtains and is also great when using Rod Pocket top and bottom panels. This type of mount attaches to the inside of the window frame. Choose an inside mount for areas where you want to allow light in from above, or minimize the distraction of a beautiful decorative hardware piece.
