How to measure for blinds


Handy Hints;
When measuring, always look out for things like window handles or tiles and take their position into account if necessary. This is so you can be sure of the perfect fit. All our blinds can be fitted into the face of your window frame or wall, or into the top of the lintel. This gives you complete control over the positioning of your blind.

What you will need
  1. Tape measure (metal ones are best)
  2. Pen and paper
Things to remember
  1. Always use a steel tape for accuracy - make sure the tape measure is straight and tight when you take your measurements
  2. Always measure in millimeters (mm)
  3. Measure all windows, even those that appear to be the same width and height
  4. Don't forget the stacking height of your chosen blind
  5. Do not take any deductions
