We have a 1924 craftsman home with 8 original double hung windows still intact:
We want to preserve them, but they're crap when it comes to insulation so we're going to purchase double cell cellular blackout shades, which are pretty thick.
My question is, can they be fully inside mounted (flush with the exterior) over our decorative interior trim. We don't want to pay installers to come measure and everything, only to find that they can't or won't install this way over our windows, but that perhaps other installers can or will install this way.
I've only been able to communicate with sales people, and their answers so far have been that we should mount them on the exterior or that they won't be flush. But there must be a work around that installers have? or at least something we can do to prepare the windows for the install so that it will work.
