Debate: Inside or Outside Mount?

The depth of your corner windows matters when it comes to mounting them. Depending on the type of window coverings you select, an inside mount may be a possibility!

However, if you have a shallow depth, an outside mount would be best. It does create a visually striking effect as it appears intentionally integrated into the design of the house.

Why not dare to be different by combining the two options? Employ an inside mount on one side, including the headrail, while the other windows allow you to place the headrail above the window, as you normally see it in homes.
