Measuring inside the recess

Measure the full width and height of the window recess. Reduce the width by 1-1.5cm in order that it will fit cleanly

TIPS

For both the width and drop, measure the window in 3 places as shown in the image opposite, and use the smallest measurements

Use a metal tape measure as cloth ones can give inaccurate measurements

Measuring outside the recess

If you want your blind to hang outside the recess, take the exact measurements and we will make the blind to your specified size

  • Measure the exact width of the area you would like the blind to overlap
  • To minimise light leakage the blind should overlap the window recess by at least 5cms on all sides

TIPS

When choosing the overlap at the bottom of your blind, take into account obstacles such as radiatorsIf you are replacing an existing blind, measure it and we will make you a new one of exactly the same size
