Measuring Guide



General Points

  • We custom make your blinds to the measurements you provide us, so please take care with your measurements
  • Use a steel tape measure
  • Measurements should always be in Millimeters
  • Measure the width first followed by the height (width x drop)
  • Measure all windows even if they appear to be the same size
  • Look for obstructions like window handles, locks, phone sockets, picture rails and alarm sensors and ensure you position the blind where they won’t interfere

Inside Recess

This is the measurement type for when you want the blind to fit inside the window recess or opening. It is the most common type and gives a neat finish. You provide us with the exact width and height measurements of the window recess. We will make the necessary calculations to ensure your blind fits the recess.

1. WIDTH

Measure the width of the recess at the top, middle and bottom. Note the narrowest width. This is the WIDTH MEASUREMENT you provide to us.

2. HEIGHT

Measure the height of the recess. This is the HEIGHT MEASUREMENT you provide to us.


3. OPTIONS

Select reveal as your fitting type when ordering

Outside Recess

This is for windows which have little or no recess depth or when the blind needs to be completely clear of the window when raised. You provide us with the exact width and height measurements of where you want the blind to cover. We will make the blind to the exact measurements.

1. WIDTH

Measure the width where you want the blind to be. This is the width measurement you provide to us. Generally, we recommend an overlap of 5cm on both sides of the recess.

2. HEIGHT

Measure the distance from where you want the top of the blind to be to where you want it to finish. This is the height measurement you provide to us.


3. OPTIONS

For wood Venetians, select Face as your fitting type when ordering.

Sash Window

Sash windows have an architrave around the window and we recommend positioning the blind inside the architrave (on the flat area) so that the architrave acts as a frame when the blind is down. You provide us with the width and Height measurements inside the architrave. We will make the necessary calculations to ensure your blind fits the architrave.

1. WIDTH

Measure the width of the recess at the top, middle and bottom. Note the narrowest width. This is the WIDTH MEASUREMENT you provide to us.

2. HEIGHT

Measure the height of the recess. This is the HEIGHT MEASUREMENT you provide to us.
