How to Measure

These measuring instructions apply for all types of window blind coverings.

Measuring for your window blinds couldn't be easier, just follow these simple instructions.  Then all you need to do is chose your blind and put you're measurement in the boxes provided...simple!!

Before you start

- For accurate measurements always use a metal tape measure.

- Take the measurements in millimetres if possible.

- Choose whether you want you’re blind to fit inside the recess of your window or hang outside the recess overlapping the window.

- Always specify the width first, followed by the drop


On Roller Blinds the fabric will be 35mm (3.5cm) narrower than the overall width of the exact blind size.  This is because the overall width of the blind includes the end sets and the brackets.

How To Measure - RECESS

For the blinds to hang inside the window

- Measure the width of the window recess in the three places as shown.
- Measure the drop by taking the measurement from the top of the recess to the windowsill in three places as shown.
- Use the smallest measurement.
- We will make all the adjustments to ensure your blind fits perfectly.


For the blinds to hang outside the recess overlapping the window

- Measure the exact area you would like the blind to cover as shown.
- To minimise light leakage we recommend the blind overlaps by at least 50mm (5cm) each side
