How to Measure Blinds

Measuring your window blinds

No matter what type of blind you require, measuring your windows is easy with our simple instructions.

Face Fit or Recess?

  • Face Fit
    When the blinds are required to hang outside the window recess.
  • Recess Fit
    When the blinds are required to fit inside the window recess.

What you will need

  1. Tape measure (metal ones are best)
  2. Pen and paper

How to measure for a Face Fit

Note: When measuring for roller blinds, please note that the actual width of the roller blind fabric will be 30mm less than the measurement provided.

For all types of blinds follow these instructions if you want your blind to hang outside the window recess:

  1. Measure the exact drop from the top of where you want your blind to be to the bottom. Note the measurement.
  2. Measure the exact width of where you'd like your blind to be. Note the measurement.

How to measure for a Recess Fit

Note: When measuring for roller blinds, please note that the actual width of the roller blind fabric will be 30mm less than the measurement provided.

Select this option if you wish to supply the size of the recess into which the blinds will fit. To provide this measurement, select "inside recess" as the measurement option. This will require measurement of the window in 3 places, as shown to the left; please provide us with the smallest measurement.

We will deduct a small amount to ensure the blinds clear the sides and bottom of the recess, allowing for correct operation. We will make a deduction of 10mm from the width, 5mm off each side and up to 10mm from the drop.

Handy Hints

  • All of our blinds are made to measure. Please follow the instructions carefully. Make sure you take your measurements using a STEEL rule or tape.
  • Take all your measurements in millimetres (mm).
  • When measuring, always look out for things like window handles or tiles and take their position into account if necessary, to ensure a perfect fit.
  • When taking measurements please follow this helpful rule - "measure once, measure twice and measure again to be sure!".
  • All of our blinds can be fitted into the face of the window frame or wall, or into the top of the lintel. This gives you complete control over the positioning of your blind.
