Taking measurements

If you prefer to measure your windows yourself, please follow our simple instructions, then give us the measurements and choose the blinds you like.

We will make the blinds and supply you with brackets and screws so that you can fit your blinds in your own time.

How to take measurements for your blinds

Recess measurement:
Hanging your blind inside the window recess

  1. Measure the width of the recess from wall to wall in 3 places as shown. Use the narrowest width measurement.
  2. Measure the drop by taking the measurement from the top of the recess to the window sill in 3 places as shown. Note down the shortest measurement - this is the one you will use.

Exact measurement:
Hanging you blind outside the window recess

  1. Measure the exact width of where you would like your blind to be.
  2. Measure the exact drop from the top of where you want your blind to be to the bottom.
    When measuring the height take into account the required space for the mounting bracket. A flat surface of a minimum 70mm above is required. The overlap at the bottom of the blind is a matter of personal choice but please take into account obstacles such as radiators.
