This is the measurement you need to to make if you want the blind to fit inside the window recess. Measure the full width & height of the ‘recessed’ area (wall to wall), as shown in the diagram below taking the smallest measurement.
Use a steel metal tape measure for accuracy and measure in inch.
Measure in 3 places for both ‘width’ and ‘height’ then use the smallest measurements for ordering. Always double check your measurements!
Don’t make any deductions for ‘recess’ specified blinds because the factory will do that to ensure the blind fits perfectly.
Look out for any obstructions such as window handles, tiles, dado rails etc and take their position into account if necessary.
This is the measurement you need to take if you want the blind to hang outside of the window recess. We will make the blind to your exact measurements specified with no deductions.
Measure the exact width of the area you would like the blind to cover. To minimize light leakage we would recommend an overlap of 2inch either side & 4inch at the top and bottom of the window.
The overlap at the bottom of the window is a matter of personal choice.
Look out for any obstructions such as tiles, dado rails, radiators etc and take their position into account if necessary.
The width of Blinds is always the ‘bracket’ to ‘bracket’ measurement and not the ‘cloth (fabric)’ width. The fabric will always be shorter by between 1inch to 2inch depending on the the blind size ordered. The Roller Blind will always be manufactured with ‘extra’ fabric on the length to ensure the tube is covered and not visible when the blind is fully extended to the height ordered
