Blinds can sit either inside or outside a window recess. It’s important to decide which you want before taking your measurements.
Measurements must be in full centimetres. Where your measurement falls in between two whole centimetres, always round down to the nearest centimetre (eg, for a measurement of 70.5cm, record 70cm).
It is always a good idea to double check any measurements before placing your order.
Inside a Window Recess
Measure the width at the top, middle & bottom of the recess. If there is a difference, record the smallest measurement and deduct a further 1cm to ensure that the blind does not snag on the recess when lowered.
Measure the length at both sides and middle of the recess. If there is a difference, order using the smallest measurement to ensure the blind hangs freely. Please note that for the drop measurement you do not need to deduct anything from the shortest measurement.
Outside a Window Recess
If you would like your blind to be fitted outside the recess, please follow the measuring guide below:
Measure the width at the top and the bottom of the window recess. Take the largest measurement and add a minimum of 5cms each side (10cms in total) for the blind to overlap the window.
Measure from the required position above the window (we recommend approximately 6cms) down to the required length.
