Three simple steps to a recess measurement

1. Measure the width of the recess from wall to wall in three places as shown. Note down the shortest measurement - this is the one we’ll use.

2. Measure the drop by taking the measurement from the top of the recess to the window sill in three places as shown. Note down the shortest measurement.

Important note: You do NOT need to make any adjustments to the width or length of your blind measurements, we will make all the necessary adjustments for you.

Important note for measuring Roller blinds!

For Roller blinds, we have to allow for fittings at either end of the blind, as there is no headrail. This means the actual fabric is approximately 2.8cm less for an exact measurement and 3.3cm less for a recess measurement. You don’t need to make this adjustment, we do.

what you will need:

1. A tape measure. Metal ones are the best!

2. A pen and piece of paper

Handy hints:

Take all your measurements in centimetres (cm) to the nearest 0.1cm.

Always look out for things like window handles or tiles. You’ll need to take their position into account to ensure a 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.
