Measuring for Blinds 

Blinds may be fitted either inside or outside the window recess. If a blind is being fitted inside a recess, please quote 'recess size' on the measuring form 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 quote 'blind size' on the measuring form and the blind will then be manufactured to the size quoted. If more than one blind is being fitted on the window please quote the size of each individual blind rather than the overall recess size. 
 
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 window opens inwards 
 
The window is not straight (width or height varies by more than 20mm (3/4") 
 

MEASURING FOR A RECESS FITTING: 

 
Measure the width and the drop in 3 positions noting any protrusions. 
 
When measuring the window recess: 
 
Always use a metal tape measure and measure in millimetres. 
 
Measure the width and the drop in at least three positions, taking account of any protrusions such as tiles and dado rails. 
 
Make a note of the smallest width and drop measurement. 
 

MEASURING OUTSIDE A WINDOW RECESS: 

 
Allow the blind to extend approximately 100mm either side, and 100mm above and below the window. 

When measuring 

 
Always use a metal tape measure and measure in millimetres. 
 
If the blind is being fitted outside the recess allow the blind to extend approximately 100mm either side and 100mm above and below the window 
 
Make a note of the required width and drop measurement. 
 
Please quote width and drop sizes in millimetres, stating "blind size"  
 
The above instructions also apply for roller and venetian blinds.
