How to measure your roman blind.
Please see the information below on how to measure your window to ensure you enter the correct size. We will make your blinds to the exact measurements you specify. It is important you follow the guidelines shown below.
Inside or Outside the Recess?
First decide where you want the blind to hang this can be either inside the recess or outside of recess covering the frame? Inside the recess looks neater but you need to determine if there is suitable space for the top fittings to be screwed into the window. Outside the recess can make the window look but is ideal for windows with limited recess space.
Please note that our blinds are made to a tolerance of within 5mm
Using a steel rule, take three measurements across the width of the recess make a note of the smallest measurement.
Do the same for the height(drop) inside the recess again making sure you take the smallest measurement.Deduct 1cm(10mm) from the smallest measurements to ensure that your blind doesn't fit too tightly within the recess.
Outside Recess Measurement
It is advisable to allow an overlap of 75mm or 3(inch) to avoid any light gaps around your blind
Take the width of the window and add the desired overlap to either side of the blind.
Measure the height(drop) of the blind and add the desired overlap to the top and bottom of the blind. If the blind is to sit on a window sill then only add the overlap to the top of the blind.
