The inside measurement of my window is 35 3/4- 7/8, so after reading the review saying they run narrow, I rolled the dice and ordered the 36". They actually measure 35 5/8", with the wooden top rail being a touch shorter. I'm guessing this is an appropriate allowance for an inside mount, so there is a bit of clearance on the edges of a 36" window case. But if you are doing an outside mount and need 36" of width covered, then order up. Also, unlike a roller shade, the brackets are all hung from 4" in from the end. I was worried that if I ordered too narrow, that the rail would be slipping out from the ends. This way, if you are covering an extra wide window, you could order multiples and hang them side by side. My only quality concern is the acrylic rings on the back that the cords run through - I question how long they will hold up to temperature changes over the years. Otherwise they run smoothly and fold neatly when you pull them up.
