Measuring for Blinds

Measuring For Blinds

Blinds may be fitted either inside or outside the window recess. If a blind is being fitted inside a recess, please choose 'recess size' when placing your order and we will make an adjustment for a perfect fit at the time of manufacture.

If a blind is being fitted outside a recess, please choose 'blind size' when placing your order and the blind will then be manufactured to the size quoted. If more than one blind is being fitted on the window please order the blind size required for each blind.

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 3" deep.
  • The window opens inwards.
  • The window is not straight (width or height varies by more than 3/4").
 

When measuring for blinds please use a metal tape measure as cloth or plastic tape measures may stretch. Always quote sizes in inches.
