Hello BlueCrab15 and thank you for your question.

You should purchase the 32 inch wide blinds.

The blinds are shipped with 1/2 inch pre-cut to accommodate for the mounting brackets and hardware (for inside mounts). Since your window is 28-1/2 inches wide + 3 inches added for outside mount, you will need a 31-1/2 inch wide blind. The 32 inch blind is actually 31-1/2 inches wide.

Take care to ensure that the 1-1/2 inches on either side of the window for the outside mount are centered for a symmetrical appearance on the window frame.

The installation instructions will show you how to trim the blind to length if desired.

Best wishes on your project.

I installed the brackets and tried to lower the blinds and it seems like they are stuck. Did I miss a step. Normally you pull to one side and it releases them. I've tried pulling both ways, nothing.

Hey Dawn,

No, these blinds cannot be used outdoors for several reasons.

The main reason is due to the nature of the blinds themselves as well as the lift mechanisms.

If you did decide to place them outside, any UV rays and moisture would ruin both slats and the metal lift mechanisms in a short amount of time.

Only purchase blinds that state that are outdoor rated on the packaging to ensure they can be installed outside.

RRpete,
Thank you for your question! When ordering blinds please remember that if you order a 33" blind, the actual measurement of it will be 32.5" to allow for clearance in an inside mount window. Either size may work for you, however if there might be areas in your window that are slightly smaller that the 32.75 measurement, it would be sager to go with the 32.5 blind that would measure 32".

The width is the finished size. It says on the product page that the blind comes 1/4 in narrower to allow for the top fitting. So measure the exact width of the window gap. There is a PDF on the product page that shows how to measure. The length is not adjustable although some people I believe to take out slats. It doesn't really matter if they are a bit long , IMO.

Asked by

Dallas TX
about White 2 in. Faux Wood Blind, 64 in. Length (Price Varies by Size) on
February 23, 2014
We are buying a house, there are 6 windows that are missing the 35 x 64" blinds and two windows that are missing 35" x 72" blinds, and I know which ones to buy for those. But the others are fine except they need valances. I know you can buy the valance clips and I've tested them and they will fit onto the existing blinds. But I would need to special order 7 of the 35" Wide valances and 2 of the 46" Wide valances for the windows with existing blinds. Can I order those? I know Lowe's will let me special order just the valances, but I really like the Home Depot blinds and valances better.

No. When I bought mine, there were only two choices on the length. I believe they had both 54: and 84".
I believe the 54" was $5 less. I got the shorter one; no sense in buying the longer version when I didnt need it. Once you have installed the blind, you can adjust the length very simply by removing the excess blind tiers, then cutting off the extra string. In this way, it becomes a custom blind, customized to the length that you want. I liked having the option to decide where to end the blind... It may vary slightly depending on how high you hang it. These are easy to install, and they hang beautifully. They also dont get dusty like regular blinds. I love that. These are very nice; you will like them!

Red1,
Thank you for your question! For blinds that will be inside-mounted you would want the blind to measure 1/2" shorter. For outside-mounted blinds you will want to measure longer, how long depends on each window individually, but keep it mind you want it to extend past the opening enough to ensure privacy from your blind.
