Measuring Guidelines

Inside Recess

We make a small deduction from the width of an inside recess blind to allow for easy fitting  (Unless you state side fix)

Measure inside of wall to inside of wall in several places in case the wall is not straight: enter smallest measurement on the measure sheet in the width column.  Measure top of reveal to window sill as above and enter measurement into the drop column on the measure sheet.

Tick inside recess in the Measurements and Position section.


Outside Recess


Measure the area you would like your blind to cover: normally we recommend that this starts 7.5cms (3 inches) above the window recess and 7.5cms (3 inches) below it, then 10cms (4 inches) to each side of the recess – but this is just a guide and you may wish to change this.  There must however be 7.5cms (3 inches) above the window recess for the brackets.  Please measure carefully and double check.

On ROLLER BLINDS ONLY remember that the actual fabric width (W) of your finished blind will always be 3.5cms (1.5inches) less than the actual overall width measurement you provide to us, to
                                  allow for the brackets, so you may wish to increase the overall measurement to allow for this

                                  Tick outside recess in the Measurements and Positions section.


Note: Always use a steel tape measure for accuracy and please provide metric measurements (centimetres).  
If you are unsure and require any advice regarding measuring for your blind please don't hesitate to contact us directly.
