Window Blinds Measuring Guide

    How To Measure for Blinds

    These measuring instructions apply to all types of blinds.

    • For accurate measurements always use a metal tape measure.
    • Take measurements in millimetres.
    • Choose whether you want your blind to fit inside the recess of your window or hang outside the recess overlapping the window.
    • Always specify the width first, followed by the drop.

    Blinds hanging inside the window recess

    • Measure the width of the window recess in three places as shown below.
    • Measure the drop by taking the measurement from the top of the recess to the window sill in three places, as shown below.
    • Use the smallest measurement.
    • We will make all adjustments to ensure your blind fits perfectly.

    Blinds hanging outside the window recess

    • Measure the exact area you would like the blind to cover as shown below.
    • To minimise light leakage we recommend the blind overlaps by at least 50mm each side.
