Measuring Your Windows for Blinds

Blind Measurements

Blinds may be fitted either inside or outside the window recess. When deciding whether to fit the blind inside or outside the recess, consider the following points :

It will be necessary to fit the blind outside the recess if :

  • The recess is less than 7.5cm deep
  • The window opens inwards
  • The window is not straight (width or height varies by more than 2cm)

Measuring for a blind to fit inside a window recess

  • Always use a metal tape and measure in millimeters
  • Measure the width (wall to wall) and drop in at least three positions taking account of any protrusions such as tiles, dado rails etc.
  • Make a note of the smallest width and drop measurement and quote these as the Recess Size. We will make the necessary adjustments for fittings.
  • All blinds are supplied on a track cut to the exact width complete with fittings and are ready to hang from simple press on brackets
