The New Smart Privacy 2" Fauxwood Blind comes standard with non-slip the patented SmartPrivacy slats for perfect privacy and slat closure.

The Smart Privacy slats set them apart from other fauxwood blinds because they have smaller holes, which are concealed when the blinds are closed. This keeps the blind slats from moving and provides tighter closure, enhanced privacy and better light control.

A smooth operating cord tilt system provides a lifetime of trouble free use. All blinds come with a new Cord Release Device designed to breakaway when pulled apart for a safer option for homes with children. All blinds come standard with a 3†designer valance and invisible clips. Two return sizes are included to accommodate all installation situations, or choose to have a straight cut valance for a flush mount. An engineered trapezoid bottom rail, along with the SmartPrivacy feature, allows this blind to close tighter than any other fauxwood blind on the market. This tight closure provides more light blockage for more energy savings and a darker room when tilted closed.

Select a mount type:


Inside mount blinds and shades are mounted inside the window frame. This option provides a clean, custom look and is considered the most popular choice. This is a great option if you do not wish to cover the window moldings.


Outside mounted blinds and shades are mounted outside the window, on your wall or molding. This option can make a window appear larger. It is also a solution if the window does not meet the depth requirement for an inside mount

Do you need any special mounting hardware?

Spacer Blocks

Spacer Blocks are used with mounting brackets to provide additional space between the mounting surface and the blind. Spacer blocks are used in certain outside mount applications where there is raised trim, molding, or window framing.


Hold Down Brackets

Hold Down Brackets are used to secure the bottom rail of your blind or window shade to the mounting surface. These are most commonly used when mounting blinds or shades to a door.

NOTE:
Due to the weight, we recommend that blinds wider than 72" be made as a 2 blinds or 3 blinds on one headrail. Dividing a large blind into two or three smaller ones makes it much easier to operate, and will extend the life of the lifting mechanism.

Please note, there will be a small gap (about 1/2") between each of the segments of the blind.

You may purchase your selection as a single headrail if you prefer. Please select from the 3 choices offered.

Measuring: Inside Mount

  • Always measure each window you plan to cover. Windows of different sizes can appear deceptively similar.
  • Use a steel / metal tape measure for accuracy.
  • Record measurements to the nearest 1/8" of an inch. Make sure you clearly indicate width from the height. It's very easy to accidentally transpose measurements.

IMPORTANT: Measure the actual window opening size. Please do not make deductions. Our factory will take all necessary allowances to ensure proper headrail fitting.

  1. STEP 1 – Find the width: Measure exact distance to the nearest 1/8" between the inside surfaces of window frame in three places (across the top, across the middle, and across the bottom – see image). Use the narrowest measurement when ordering the width. Do not make any additional width deductions – the factory will make the appropriate deductions to ensure proper fitting.
  2. STEP 2 – Find the height: Measure exact distance to the nearest 1/8" from inside surface at top of window to the window sill in three places (on the left, middle, and right – see image). Use the longest measurement when ordering the height. If you prefer blind not to touch sill, deduct 1/4". If there is no sill, measure to the point where blind is to reach.

Considerations for choosing an inside mount

Inside mount blinds and shades are mounted inside the window frame. This option provides a clean, custom look and is a great option if you do not wish to cover the window moldings.

Although inside mounts are a popular choice, there are a few things to consider before choosing an inside mount.

  • Frame Depth: Inside mount blinds and shades require a minimum mounting depth within your frame. This number varies by window covering type and manufacturer. Review the product info / specs tab for more information. If your window frame isn't deep enough for the style you've chosen, an outside mount is recommended.
  • Obstacles: Obstacles such as window handles or cranks can interfere with the operation of your inside mount treatment. If your window has any type of obstacle, consider choosing an outside mount.

  • Squareness: For inside mount your window should be square, if not, your treatment may not hang or operate properly. Check for squareness by measuring diagonally in both directions. If measurements differ by more than 1/2", consider choosing an outside mount.
  • Light Gap: A small deduction in width is taken by the factory to allow for proper headrail clearance and operation. This causes a small gap on each side of the window covering, affecting the blind's or shade's ability to darken a room. For optimal light control, an outside mount is recommended or you may add a secondary window treatment, such as draperies, to hide the light gap.

Measuring: Outside Mount

  • Always measure each window you plan to cover. Windows of different sizes can appear deceptively similar.
  • Use a steel / metal tape measure for accuracy.
  • Record measurements to the nearest 1/8" of an inch. Make sure you clearly indicate width from the height. It's very easy to accidentally transpose measurements.

IMPORTANT: For outside mount applications allow the blind to overlap 1 1/2" – 3" on the sides, top, and bottom of the window. You'll need to add this to your measurements.

  1. STEP 1 – Find the width: Measure exact distance to the nearest 1/8" between the outermost points where the blind is to be placed. For optimum light control, this measurement should extend at least 3/4" beyond the window opening on each side (or 1 1/2" for the entire width)
  2. STEP 2 – Find the height: Measure exact distance to the nearest 1/8" from where top of blind will be located to the top of the window sill. If there is no sill, or if blind is to overlap the window frame, measure to the point where the blind is to reach.

Considerations for choosing an outside mount

Outside mounted blinds are installed on your wall or molding surrounding the window and can make a window appear larger. It is also a solution when the window is not deep enough for an inside mount.

  • Surface area above window: Outside mounted blinds and shades require a minimum mounting surface above your window or on the window frame for installation brackets. Each product type has a recommended amount of overlap on each side of the window to allow for best coverage and privacy. See product info / specs tab for more information.
