How to Measure for Your New Window Blinds

Recess Fitting

This is the measurement you need to take if you want your blind to fit inside the window recess. Measure the full width and height of the recess [the size of the hole if you like] and we will make the appropriate deductions to ensure a perfect fit.

Measure in 3 places for both the width and the drop, use the smallest measurements

Don't make any deductions, we will do that for you to ensure your blind fits perfectly

Use a metal tape measure, cloth ones can stretch and give you inaccurate measurements

Exact Fitting

Measure the exact width of the area you would like the blind to overlap. To minimize light leakage we recommend that the blind overlaps the window recess by at least 70mm at the top and 50mm each side

The overlap at the bottom of the blind is a matter of personal choice but please take into account obstacles such as radiators

If you are replacing an existing blind with one of the same size simply measure the blind and specify exact fitting, we will make you one the same size

This is the measurement you need to take if you want the blind to hang outside the recess overlapping the window. In this case we will make the blind to your specified size with no deductions.
