Measuring for your blind – our blinds are designed to fit outside the recess of your window.
Measure the exact width and exact drop you require in cm. We recommend a window recess overlap of at least 6cm / 2.5″ all round ie top, bottom and sides, you will need to consider the frame of your window and where you would like your side guidewires fixing. This ensures that the window does not show on either side or obscure part of the window when fully raised. Step by step guide:
1. Measure the width of your window and any overlap you require. We advise an overlap of at least 6cm on the window recess, and consider the window frame.
2. Measure the drop (height) of your window and any overlap you require. Once again we advise an overlap of at least 6cm on the window recess.
3. Use these exact measurements throughout our website when giving your ‘Actual’ measurements.
4. You can now enter your actual blind measurements and select the size that your measurements fall within ie xsmall, small, medium or large. You will see the cost at the end of your options based on the size of your blind and any additional extras chosen.
Please Note: we do not make any deductions to the measurements given when using the actual blind size option.
